The Col Ltd. is a performance bike. Whether you're training for your first tri or you're already a road riding fiend, this bike is quick to love. Its lightweight frame and aerodynamic position allow for super fast acceleration and relentless speed. And the shifters are positioned so they're easy to reach, giving you a more confident and stable ride. For this season, we gave the Col a new paint job and upgraded it from 9 speeds to 10.
