The De Rosa Idol is reintroduced to the De Rosa range for 2014 and returns encompassing the many new trends in road bike design. The design, geometries and materials used are all optimised for the utilisation with disc brakes. The Idol also offers a frame and fork manufactured using Super High-Modulus carbon fibre and features full internal cable routing.
Two types of Super High-Modulus carbon fibre 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.
The Idol disc comes kitted out with Shimano’s 11 speed Di2 Ultegra groupset, providing precision electronic shifting and the enormous stopping power of the new BR-R785 hydraulic disc calipers.
The 4 arm chainset is lighter and stiffer than many 5 arm designs. The offset four arm design provides stiffness where it is needed most in the pedal stroke, ensuring all the effort you are putting in with your legs goes straight to the rear wheel.
