Grand Tour winners and Aurum co-owners Alberto Contador and Ivan Basso have released version 2 of the Aurum Magma, their performance race bike ridden at the Giro d’Italia by the Polti-Kometa pro team - and by Cyclingnews at the Aurum Magma launch in Spain, where we rode with Alberto Contador himself. 

The first generation Aurum Magma was introduced around five years ago by Contador and Basso and the new model follows many of the trends in performance bike design in the interim.
