The top of the range of De Rosa is enriched by a new set of frames: the 888 SuperKing.
The Series 888 is formed by superking models “R” and “E”. In particular, the model “E” (Matt Black) has been designed with the aim of integrating the battery of Campagnolos EPS into the chassis, uner the downtube by the BB. The ‘SuperKing 888 “E” is the result of collaboration between De Rosa designers and engineers from Campagnolo. This union has made the first frame in the world devoted to Campagnolo Eps with the battery being completely hidden inside the frame, and rechargeable via a “plug” into the frame itself. Model “R” is dedicated to all those who choose mechanical assemblies.
The 888 superking is characterized by a blend of 3 different types of composite fibers MR-60 (295 GPA/5800MPA), HR-40 (390GPA/4610MPA) and NGF’s 630GPA in addition to structural reinforcements at the points of greatest stress using high modulus fibers. The structure of the frame is certainly refined and advanced, intended to provide a low overall weight, high rigidity, but with a better absorption of vibrations.
The 888 series is the world’s first SuperKing characterized by the vibration damping, unique and harmonious distributed uniformly through the structure of the rear seat tube and forks.
