The new Tommaso Coltello triathlon bike comes from miles of training and years of of experience in racing, training, building and fitting tri bikes. Tommaso even had a product guy compete in an Ironman to get the tri bike line dialed. The result is the Tommaso Coltello and its Carbon big brothers, the Aereo and the Sixth Sense. The Coltello is the answer to all the other brands out there with starting price points around $1699. Just because triathlon has the highest income of all the cycling disciplines doesn’t mean you have feel robbed. There’s more to tri than just the bike. There are gym fees for the pool, running shoes, race fees and for some, coaching fees. Tommaso made this bike at such a great price you will be able to afford the rest.
When it came to components on the Tommaso Coltello the product team chose Shimano for its reliability and quality. For the Coltello you will find a Shimano 105 5700 series front and 6700 Ultegra rear derailleur with a 105 level 12x25 cassette and Shimano Dura-Ace 10-speed shifters. For the power from the pedal you will find the FSA Omega 50/34 crank. A lot of endurance athletes have come to embrace the compact gearing for saving the legs while still providing the power. Tri racing is different than road racing. As a triathlete you want have a little something left in the legs for that little run at the end whether it’s a 5k, 10k, half marathon or the big 26.2 of an Ironman. If you are grinding a huge gear on the bike you better be a pro or be ready to walk the run…enough said!
The cockpit of the bike is the legendary FSA Vision base bar and aero J-bend extensions. These will keep you low, comfortable and cutting through the wind. The Shimano Dura-Ace 10-speed shifters will be at your fingertips for optimal gear choice. Alex 1.0 wheels are equipped with a Shimano 12x25 10-speed cassette and Hutchinson Equinox 700x23 tires The perch for this fast machine is a custom designed tri saddle with just enough extra padding on the nose for those long days. The tail of the saddle has a slight kick for pushing the speed on the flats.
The Tommaso Frame
The Tommaso Coltello starts with an aero shaped aluminum frame with wheel cut-out on the rear wheel. This ensures that the rider gets the lightest, strongest, best performing and fitting frame for the dollar. The tri geometry places the rider in the optimum position for steady handling, speed and comfort. The Coltello has a fast carbon aero bladed fork matched to the frame geometry for miles of comfort and better handling. One of the most important (and overlooked) aspects of a good tri bike is the stability. When you are training and racing for tri you will soon learn that eating and drinking are very important to survival. Having a bike that you can count on to remain stable while you are eating gels, bars and drinking Gatorade is a must.
The Tommaso Fit
Sizing a tri bike is no different, or more difficult, than any other style of bike. By reviewing the size chart you will see a measurement called the “Eff Top Tube”, also known as the Effective Top Tube Measurement. This is what the top tube would measure if it was parallel to the ground. It is an imaginary line that runs from the center of the head tube to the center of the seat tube if the seat tube was extended like a traditional frame. Most triathletes ride a smaller top tube on the tri bike than their road bike. This helps get the elbows up on the pads of the aero bars. The size chart also lists suggested heights for the different frame sizes. This is far more helpful in sizing a bike than standing over the top tube and pulling up on the handlebars (which tells you nothing about the fit of a bike). Tommaso offers four sizes to accommodate riders large and small. It will be easy to find a fit for all of our customers.
The Tommaso Feel
The staff at Tommaso Bicycles rides, races and believes in what they produce. Tommaso product guys spend a lot of time riding, racing and wrenching. By taking a Tommaso bike to Ironman they know how important it is to have a bike you can trust to perform. Triathlon is all about finding time…quick transitions and a quick bike can make a huge difference in how far up the results page you need to look to find your name. The Tommaso Coltello was designed to be stable through the corners and well mannered on the ascents. The people that were involved in the production of this bike know that you are going to be wet and tired from the swim and anxious for the run. Tommaso wants to bike to be the “easy” part in the middle. The positioning is neutral so nothing too extreme to overcook your hamstrings and leave you limping on the run. The FSA cockpit fits perfectly with your arm/hand positioning for miles of comfort and shifting. With being rolled forward in the aero position a slightly more padded saddle is offered to keep you fresh for the run ahead. The speed of riding a tri bike is exhilarating…the difference in speed from a standard road bike is frightening.
All Tommaso bikes are packed and shipped in a specially designed, reusable high density foam and cardboard box. This $100.00 value can be used for future trips and adventures on your Tommaso bike. The box contains three layers of foam to protect your Tommaso bike from any damage during transport.
