With a lot of quality finishing kit included in this package, the Cinelli Experience ticks boxes left, right and center, and it really impressed.
Cinelli Experience Review
For wannabe fastmen and fastwomen the Experience is one of the best ‘entry-level’ bikes around at this price, and an ideal entry point to the world of Campagnolo too.

A great ﬁrst road bike – get the full Campagnolo experience at a realistic price.
Cinelli Experience Road Bike Review
The Experience offers a very rewarding ride. It’s dynamic, lively and aggressive and would readily lend itself to racing or triathlons rather than training or sportives.
