The De Rosa Idol is reintroduced to the De Rosa range for 2016 and returns encompassing the many new trends in road bike design. The design, geometries and materials used are all optimized for the utilization. The Idol also offers a frame and fork manufactured using Super High-Modulus carbon fiber and features full internal cable routing.
Super High-Modulus carbon fiber
Two types of Super High-Modulus carbon fiber are used in the manufacture and both maintain a balance between structural rigidity, vibration absorption and weight. The frame is a blend of T1000 (70%) and T800 (30%) carbon, thereby guaranteeing structural rigidity, absorption capacity and lightness to a very high level. The result is a lightweight and comfortable, modern frame that features the unique style and flair that comes with owning a De Rosa.
Shimano Ultegra drivetrain
This year De Rosa have spec'd up the Idol with the new Shimano Ultegra 6800 11 speed. With its light action and smooth indexing allows you to push that little bit further but supply you with the confidence and the reliability that Shimano offer with their products.
Fulcrum Racing Sport Wheelset
De Rosa have polished the Idol off with a set of Fulcrum Racing Sport wheels. These are sealed cartridge bearing hubs with double-walled alloy rims, with these combined you get a smooth rolling, low rotational and overall weight making it that little bit more easier to role along the open road. To top it of the wheelset has been rapped with a pair of Continental Gran Sport Race tires to give you maximum grip around the corners.
3T/Prologo Finishing Kit
3T and Prologo supply the components needed for the Idol's finishing kit. The bike has 3T Ergonova handlebars and a 3T ARX stem with Prologo Kappa saddle and bar tape. A great finishing kit bundle that gives you complete comfort and reliability whilst out on the roads.
