It is faster everywhere. MAGMA is the bike that Contador and Basso wish they had throughout their careers. Born from experience, it’s a project that has kept them busy since they retired from professional racing.

MAGMA is agile, light and fast. But from the outset Contador and Basso agreed that it must be balanced in its handling: comfortable and compliant enough for long rides, yet stiff while climbing off-the-saddle. Reactive at its front end when cornering to track every tight corner with precision, yet stable to inspire confidence on even the fastest open descents.

MAGMA is also a beautiful object, in a subtle way. Every feature is purposely engineered and integrated, with no unnecessary elements or shaping, to contribute both to performance and to MAGMA’s cool yet understated aesthetics.

To refine the small details and fine-tune the carbon layup, both Alberto Contador and Ivan Basso worked tirelessly testing several frame prototypes, ensuring MAGMA’S handling, ride quality and looks live up to their dream of make the best performing, fastest bike on the road.

FINDING THE BALANCE

Creating the fastest high-performance road bike on the market is a balancing act between different riding characteristics:

For power delivery and quick, confident handling and cornering

Reducing aero drag for the best efficiency and pure speed

For long rides and ensuring that the rider can always get the best of out him/herself

For a lively feel and to save energy, without compromising stiffness and comfort

POWER & PERFORMANCE

STIFFNESS

Alberto Contador and Ivan Basso know as well as anybody that to perform at your best, the wattage you generate needs to be delivered to the road with maximum efficiency: a frame being stiff in the right places is crucial.

MAGMA is designed with high lateral stiffness at the bottom bracket area when you’re riding out of the saddle, at maximum effort, high speed or attacking a climb. It’s also made with high torsional stiffness particularly in the headtube and downtube sections – the backbone of the frame – crucial for a frameset that delivers confident handling and cornering.

Using a BB386Evo standard bottom bracket, MAGMA’s airfoil downtube tapers out from the headtube, maximizing torsional stiffness. The dimensions of the downtube on all frame sizes have been scaled individually for a proportionate stiffness level, so you’ll find consistent riding characteristics.

OPTIMUM RIDER PERFORMANCE

COMFORT

While the stiffness of key sections of MAGMA’s frameset are optimised for power delivery and sure handling – both in terms of geometry and details of the carbon layup – other areas are designed and tuned differently, to ensure the right level of comfort in an all-round performance bike. Riding position and frameset flexibility in the right areas are crucial for performing at your best over a long ride.

FASTER BY DESIGN

AERODYNAMICS

An important and non-debatable goal set by Contador and Basso from the beginning of the project was to work in depth in the aerodynamic efficiency of the Magma.

Aerodynamics are very important in how MAGMA performs at speed and remains stable at different yaw angles. Traditional racing bikes have been split between Light or Aerodynamic, but it was essential to combine these two characteristics and make the MAGMA a faster bike.

WEIGHT

Achieving a low weight was an important goal for the MAGMA project, however it was not to be the main focus of the development, but to have balanced overall riding characteristics. Often reaching for the last grams can result in a loss of structural strength or riding comfort.

At same time, too much focus on the weight figures could result in a not so aerodynamically optimized shaping, which after all contributes to higher speed in most riding situations.

ECT: At AURUM, we have named our carbon treatment process “Experience Carbon Technology”.

This designation reflects the experience as professional cyclists of Alberto Contador and Ivan Basso combined with the unwavering commitment of our engineering team to excellence and quality at every step of the manufacturing process of each frame. From the meticulous lamination protocol, tailored to each size, to the creation of EPS foam cores that give life to the interior of our frames. It all culminates in the precise molding in high-pressure machined steel molds.

 

MAGMA’s manufacturing process offers us the maximum expression of our ECT 10 standard. Up to 6 different types of carbon are used to obtain superior mechanical qualities (stiffness, torsion and flexibility) thanks to specific reinforcements of high-modulus materials.
