You’re the fastest rider in your group of friends, the only one who rides when it’s below 40 degrees, and you don’t flake out on the ride every other week. Masi rewards your dedication with their Gran Corsa, a race-ready machine for those of us who love the ride, not just looking the part. The MA6 aluminum frame checks your needs off the list, delivering compliance, but not at the expense of efficient power transfer. The MC8 monocoque carbon fork knocks down road chatter and doles out crisp handling so you can negotiate the peloton or a winding back-road descent with equal precision. Shimano’s 105 drivetrain tags in a Praxis Works crank to set your reliability-concerned mind at ease while delivering smooth, pinpoint shifting. That’ll get your DT Swiss rims spinning, and their road-gripping Kenda tires will gladly shoot you forward and carve up the corners on demand. Steep and winding is no problem with Tektro direct mount brakes, and a full suite of Brev. M touch points deliver racy performance and long-haul comfort. You’ve put in your time: don’t you think it’s time to step up to Gran Corsa?

Wanting to begin training for a triathlon but knowing nothing/zero/nada about road bicyles, I tried a few entry level models, but tested this one after seeing it on special and immediately noticed how much lighter and smoother it felt--it was that obvious! For the price it was a great deal considering I don't foresee having any component envy anytime soon with the mid-level parts this thing comes stock with.
