De Rosa has lifted the curtains on its latest road bike called the 70, debuting an all-new aero design that celebrates the vaunted Italian brand’s 70th Anniversary.
According to De Rosa, the 70 took the better part of two years to develop, which comprises a mix of 12k high-modulus and 1K unidirectional carbon fiber for optimal stiffness, yielding a frame that tips the scales at a feathery 730 grams, while the fork weighs in at an equally impressive 280 grams.
Available in disc brake only, other features that punctuate the 70 include full cable and hose integration courtesy of FSA’s Vision single-piece bar-stem that was designed specifically for the bike, along with a new hexagonal seat tube that sits close to the rear wheel, resulting in what De Rosa says is its most aerodynamic road bike to date.
The 70 is offered with an array of high-end builds, with a choice between a Campagnolo Super Record, Shimano Dura-Ace or SRAM Red AXS groupset, as well as premium wheels from Campagnolo, Fulcrum and Vision.
While there’s no word on pricing, suffice to say, one best be prepared to lay down plenty of lira.
