De Rosa, the famous Italian bicycle manufacturer has unveiled its 2014 collection. There are 11 road bike, 1 time trial and 1 fixed bike models in the collection.
De Rosa Protos is a two-year project. The blend of three type of fibers employed: 50% TI 800 fiber, 40% TI 1000 and 10% XN60. According to De Rosa, the Protos frame increases the STW (Stifness to Weight) ratio by 35% compared to traditional racing bikes.
The innovative cabling system inside, both for the solution “full integrated”. So the bottom bracket by 86.5 mm and steering differentiated by 1 1/8 and 1 1/4.
Available in eight measurements, also customizable on request.
The top of the De Rosa range is made complete with a new series of frames: 888 Superking 2014 in the “R”, “SR” and “E” models.
The “E” model was designed to be exclusively.
dedicated for the mounting of electronic units. It is a project in synergy with Campagnolo engineers. This model features the possibility of recharging the battery via a plug positioned underneath the water bottle holder.
The “R” and “SR” models are instead dedicated to those who choose mechanical mounting units.
The series 888 SuperKing is characterized by a “blend” of 3 different types of composite fibers MR-60 (295 GPA/5800MPA), HR-40 (390GPA/4610MPA) and NGF’s 630GPA.
The structure of the frame is refined and advanced, intended to provide a low overall weight, high rigidity, but with a better absorption to vibration.
Proposal with regular geometry, and in 8 sizes.
King RS Action
The integrated saddle tube disappears to make place for internal new-generation batteries destined for the mounting of electronic units.
The measurement, geometries (except for the height) and characteristics of the materials did not change. The frame is a blend of 55% TI800 fibre, 35% TI1000 fibre and 10% XN60.
The new KING RS ACTION keeps the 1’/2 steering tube in the lower part. There is the predisposition for BB30 and integrated forks in carbon.
IDOL is a bike conceived and designed for the utilization of disc brakes. The structural specifications of the new IDOL are connected to the improvement of the load-bearing structure where the presence of a disc brake and the consequent braking power requires it.
Its design, geometries and materials utilized are optimized for utilization with a disc brake, but obviously IDOL also accepts the classical block brakes for those who follow traditional solutions without renouncing the latest generation and futuristic design frames.
The IDOL frame is made from SUPER HI-MODUL fibre with a blend of T1000 (70%) and T800 (30%). It is offered in six frame sizes.
A proposal of great depth for our “entry level” frame.
A beautiful entry level frame with the technical contents worthy of a high-end segment frame. Monocoque in carbon / K3 series head tube 1,1 / 8 at the top and 1,1 / 4 bottom set up for bottom bracket BB 30 and internal cabling.
Five sizes proposed (51,53,54,56,58 cm), in the first two sizes the rake of the forks will be 50 mm, to maximize stability.
The monocoque structure of the R848, is a great feature for an entry level road bike.
Formula King is the Time-Trial bike of De Rosa. The 2014 Formula King has an integrated stem. A further integration is the rear brake; it disappears into the bottom bracket design.
The frame has a monocoque structure that uses an undirectional fiber that gives stifness and lightness.
The fixed gear bike of De Rosa. Steel and aluminum frames are available.
Steel and passion: a modern interpretation of steel, thanks to artisan construction techniques using TIG welding and the use of 18MCDV6 alloy steel.
The CORUM frame is made to measure, customizing both the regular geometry and the slope.
There is an integrated steering tube, while the fork is in carbon fiber.
The fascination of steel has remained unchanged over time. There are still many who value this material and the NUOVO CLASSICO frames are produced for them with the same artisan.
For many years the frames have been made with the same technical expertise, with micro-fusion welding of joints, followed by finishing of all the elements by hand with attention for every detail.
This frame sums up the most long-standing Italian frame-building tradition and De Rosa is the standard bearer.
Steel fork and availability in 14 sizes.
Another steel frame. Steel fork and available in 14 sizes.
TEAM, frame made of aluminum alloy, provides for the use of a head tube “oversize” and a carbon fiber fork.
The De Rosa Team remains a viable alternative to the composite material frames, with an affordable cost lightness.
Finishes and colors consistently high quality as in the De Rosa philosophy.
