ICONIC ELEMENTS: All of the iconic elements identifying the Laser are maintained: the fin under the bottom bracket, the fittings of the joints and the passage of the rear wheel housed in the seat tube. An anodized aluminum cap is positioned under the bottom bracket fin to allow easy access for routing shift cables.

 

CNC DROPOUTS: The rear aluminum CNC dropouts sandwich wrap the central carbon part fully integrated to the rear stays.

 

MECHANICAL AND ELECTRONIC: Fully internal cable routing for both mechanical and electronic groupsets.

Info

Since 1981 the Cinelli Laser has represented the pinnacle of made-to-measure custom Italian framebuilding, winning more track world championship and Olympic gold medals than any other bicycle in the history of the sport.

The new Laser Mia is the first-ever carbon fiber Cinelli Laser to be made available to the general public. The frame has been designed by the original Laser team and is 100% made in Italy combining avant-garde material technologies and construction methods with artisanal mastery that no mass-production method can imitate.

Like every Laser frame that has preceded it, the heart of the Laser Mia’s performance innovation lies in the radical re-construction of the bottom bracket area which allows for the production of the signature Laser stiff and extremely responsive ride quality, at a far lower weight (980 g) than any other custom carbon fiber frame currently available on the market.

The first Laser (1981) was born from a sketch of Antonio Colombo’s inspired by early French aerodynamic bicycles seen at a trade show in Japan. It’s complex manufacturing was facilitated by the new synergy possible between tubing manufacturer Columbus, and Cinelli, itself made possible by Colombo’s acquisition of Cinelli in 1979.

It wasn’t until late in 1982, upon the commissioning of four Laser frames for the Italian Junior team, that the Laser “team” (framebuilder Andrea Pesentia, Columbus engineer Paolo Erzegovesi, Antonio Colombo and a series of other rotating collaborators) began to develop the manufacturing philosophy that would render the Laser such a legend of the 1980s and 90s.

The pioneering use of TIG-welding (then unheard of in racing bicycles), combined with the application or reinforcing “sleeves” of steel brazed to the frame’s joints allowed for a radical re-repositioning of the frame’s bottom bracket.

In addition to the obvious advantage of allowing for a far shorter wheel-base (and thus a shorter total train during team time trial events), the repositioning of the bottom bracket allowed for Cinelli to create a drastically stiffer bottom bracket. This manufacturing innovation pre-dated one of the most important characteristics of contemporary carbon fiber bicycles and is still the basis of the carbon fiber Laser Mia’s design principle.
