The De Rosa King is one of the finest expressions of the use of carbon fiber in bike frame development. It is the discovery of how one can try to overcome the personal limit.
The De Rosa King evolves from the first-ever carbon project developed by De Rosa in Cusano Milanino and is being presented with completely new graphics and colors. The De Rosa King was developed specifically to address the needs of the long distance high performance cyclist (think Gran Fondo), perfectly combining lightweight, agile responsiveness, comfort and performance. It is one of the finest expressions of the use of carbon fiber in bike frame development.
It’s signature feature is the rear brake position, located behind the bottom bracket, which provides an innovative solution and augments braking power, increases rider comfort and improves the overall aesthetic of the bicycle. The trail has been reduced, allowing the frame to increase frame absorption without losing reactivity and stability, with the overall result being a more “racing” oriented product. The integrated fork is an added aerodynamic features and creates clean, smooth lines increasing its aesthetic impact. The frame is made out of the best carbon fibre composite material available: TI1000, TI800 and XN10.
The aggressive race geometry puts the rider in a low and extended ride position, perfect for racing. Its lightweight allows riders to take off fast and roll up climbs with ease. The aerodynamic refinements and sleek lines make it a fast ride for any terrain and the improved comfort makes it the perfect choice for long rides.
