De Rosa's heart has won a thousand battles. Conquering the toughest climbs, cutting through the wind and against the clock and sprinting for ambitious milestones.
Every work experienced, every detail of his own creations cared for, every material tested. In the selection and modelling - works of art and Italian craftsmanship. An evolution that has been running endlessly for 70 years with dreamers all over the world.
Together with you, together with us.
A 730 gram frame - lightweight, elegant, aerodynamic. 22 months from idea to development with an obsessive attention to every single detail. The design is collaborated and endorsed by Pininfarina, a solid all-Italian partnership. Heart and emotion, without compromise. The result: the most advanced De Rosa bike of all time.
Lightness and technology, without compromise.
Pure stiffness, superior performance.
Aerodynamics, fast by tradition.
The high-modulus carbon is progressively and fluently distributed throughout the frame. From the 12K view from the rear and its defined shape, moving on to the 1K that effortlessly integrates unidirectionally over the body of the frame, in its entirety. Technically, the weight is reduced and with an unprecedented aesthetic all while combining stiffness which has always characterized the bikes of the heart.
The headset tube has no edges, thus no interference with aerodynamic flow. A gentle shape, a "cradle" that perfectly accommodates and integrates all the cables. The look is clean, and the frontal impact with the wind is absolutely minimized.
The top tube has a linear extension and is slightly sloping and creates a perfect proportion with the seat tube which is hexagonal, aerodynamically profiled - ready to cut through the wind.
However the real revolution is in the rear seat and chain stays: a true masterpiece of technique and knowledge. The angles impose themselves, the weight is reduced all while the air flows away.
Finally the bottom bracket area - elegant curves, completely flawless. Innovative and sturdy at the same time.
