The opening act in Masi's performance road line is the lightweight and affordable Inizio. Built around comfort and distance, this popular aluminum model utilizes a taller tapered head tube matched to a carbon bladed fork to provide optimum ride comfort and control. Masi's proprietary Brev.M 3D forged cockpit and seat post trims unwanted weight while the 28mm tires deliver a smooth and precise ride regardless of road condition. Affordable, versatile, and full of character the Masi Inizio is the ultimate in style, performance, and value.
