Vista, California’s Masi Bicycles in all probability isn’t the primary model that involves thoughts whenever you consider titanium. However final yr, they considerably quietly launched a brand new titanium all-road/gravel bike referred to as the Incanto. Masi has a couple of different gravel bikes obtainable of their lineup, however the Incanto is their first run at doing an all-road/gravel bike with a titanium body. The Incanto has slowly been launched all through 2022 and sits alongside their different titanium providing and pure street machine, the Masi Titanio frameset.
The Incanto was truly set to launch again in 2020, however due to pandemic problems, the launch had quite a few delays. Like different bicycle manufacturers, Masi has completed away with releasing bikes underneath designated “mannequin years”, however the official launch yr for the Incanto is 2022.
For full disclosure, I’m a model ambassador for Masi Bicycles. So once I wanted a place to begin for my upcoming dream construct venture, I requested the Incanto frameset in 58cm. The frameset retails for $3299 and comes with Masi’s Brunello full carbon fork, a Masi branded Token cartridge bearing headset, a seat collar, and a house-branded Brev M titanium seat put up. The full Incanto Ti sells for $6499 with full Campy EKAR and Fulcrum Fast Pink DB 300 wheels.
The body weighs in at 1842.7g (4lbs), with out the fork, seat collar, water bottle bolts, or headset. The fork weighs 445g (15.7oz).
The Incanto Ti allroad, gravel body is constructed from tig-welded butted 3al 2.5v titanium. It has a 41mm semi-integrated headtube. It makes use of a BB86 backside bracket shell, a flat mount rear disc brake, a replaceable rear derailleur hanger, and is inner dropper put up suitable. The rear is spaced at 12×142 utilizing the included thru-axle.
The body comes with refined branding that Masi says is laser etched. The fork comes with low-key branding as effectively.
The entire body’s laser-etched logos have been a coloration referred to as Blue Laser, making them look virtually anodized.
The fork’s branding can be refined. Masi’s Brunello Carbon gravel fork has flat black fork legs with gloss-black logos.
The Brunello carbon fork has inner brake routing, fender mounts, it makes use of flat disc brake mounts, and a 100 x 12mm included thru-axle.
The Brunello fork additionally has a full carbon 1.125-1.5″ tapered steer tube.
The seat put up is the Masi house-branded Brev M. It’s titanium and measures 31.6 x 350mm lengthy. Masi affords this put up in two totally different offsets. For bike sizes 47cm to 51cm it is available in a 0mm offset. For bike sizes 54cm to 60cm it is available in a 10mm offset. This body is 58cm, so the put up proven is the 10mm offset.
Body Geo Chart
On the Masi Bicycles web site, it states that the Incanto body has “semi-internal cable routing with customized configurations for 1x, 2x, or dropper put up routing. The entire Campy EKAR group that’s spec’d on the whole bike runs a single 40t entrance chainring. However it’s outfitted to run a entrance double if wanted. Masi says that the body is meant to run a 46t/30t, with the max being 50t/30t.
The entire Incanto comes with 40mm tires, and based on the web site, the Incanto body can match a 700c x 45mm tire max. It seemed prefer it might match an even bigger tire, so I spoke with the Product Supervisor for the Incanto, and he mentioned there may be truly room for an even bigger tire… he didn’t say how a lot larger, he simply mentioned “room for extra”. How a lot tire and dust clearance will seemingly differ based mostly on tire development and inside rim width.
The Incanto body comes with bottle bosses on each the down tube and the seat tube with extra bosses underneath the down tube and on the highest tube as proven within the above picture.
