De Rosa Protos Road Frameset

Protos is the most ambitious project ever attempted by the De Rosa family.

As a result of two years of work, an important project where De Rosa wanted to merge all their valuable "know how" accumulated in nearly 60 years of work, combined with engineering design. 

Once aboard the impressions are unique, you will experience unreal driving comfort teamed with absolute responsiveness. The ability to absorb and disperse the road buzz is obtained from the unique design of the fork and how it integrates with the head tube.

Protos leaves nothing to chance. The material is an expert blend of 3 fibres employed and carefully measured to obtain a precise goal. The composition is made up of 50% TI 800 fibre, 40% TI 1000, and 10% XN60. The PROTOS frame increases the STW (stiffness to weight) value by 35% compared to traditional competition racing bikes. 

The innovative cabling system inside is "fully integrated" and the bottom bracket is 86.5mm with 1.1/8 and 1.1/4" head tube.
