he full name is Ma­son Pro­gres­sive Cy­cles, and I kind of wanted that “pro­gres­sive” bit there to show the com­pany is more than just another start-up. We’re do­ing some­thing new,’ says founder Dom Ma­son.

For­merly the brains be­hind Ki­ne­sis, Ma­son en­joyed a suc­cess­ful run of ‘all-sea­son bikes’ that sat some­where be­tween classy win­ter trainer and all-day en­durance rig. How­ever, with the Colum­bus Life and Spirit steel tubed Res­o­lu­tion, and its sis­ter bike, the Dedac­ciai alu­minium Def­i­ni­tion, Ma­son is at­tempt­ing to push the all-sea­son bracket by cre­at­ing a high-end, per­for­mance ori­en­tated, all-weather steed. The re­sult is a stun­ningly well fin­ished disc-only frame with the latest tricks and giz­mos up its sleeve – a match­ing, pro­pri­etary Ma­son disc fork, unique ‘flip-flop’ frame in­serts to cope with in­ter­nally routed ca­bles, hoses or wires, and most im­por­tantly for cur­rent trends and UK weather, clear­ance for 28c tyres and mud­guards.

‘This bike can be master of all oc­ca­sions, as well as one you’d be proud to be seen rid­ing. A real in­vest­ment,’ says Ma­son. We’ll see if it de­liv­ers on that prom­ise when we test one later this year.
