Casati Arte

The Casati "Arte" might easily pass for something that it is not. It is in fact a titanium and carbon fiber frame in which all the transitions from one material to the other are seamless with no unevenness. The tubes and rear triangle are carbon fiber joined to titanium lugs. All cable routing is internal.

Each Arte is custom made to measure and includes a fork (full carbon 1 1/8"), seatpost, steam and headset.

Casati is celebrating their 90th anniversary this year and have a special edition frame available.

  1. This is a nice improvement on the original Arte frame where the carbon lugs were black and the tubing was
    natural titanium. While this hides the materials is returns to the incredible and impeccable finish work I know and love from Casati. I own three of their frames and each is a gorgeous piece of work. I own a seventieth anniversary frame, the Settantenario, equipped with what I think was the original Ergopower. I rode it about two weeks ago.
