Columbus SL road bicycle designed by the late grandmaster Hans-Christian Smolik in collaboration with ICS. Absolutely every single component of this bike has been reduced in weight to the functional minimum. Truly a sublime work of art, which must be seen and lifted up to grasp the unbelievable fact that it only weighs 5.9 Kilos completely assembled! An incredible amount of intelligence, time and effort has gone into creating this machine.
