Strada Italia, back to the road

We're proud to announce the latest addition to our made-in-Italy lineup: the Strada Italia, a versatile road bike designed to seamlessly blend comfort and aerodynamics.

Crafted in our Bergamo factory alongside the Racemax Italia and Extrema Italia, the Strada Italia embodies our commitment to high-performance cycling innovation on Italian soil.

A tailored carbon layup for reactivity, handling, and comfort

Our engineers have leveraged filament winding and our own Resin-Transfer-Moulding (RTM) technology, shared with our other Italia models, to tailor the carbon layup to enhance the rider’s experience every time they throw a leg over the bike.

From reactivity to handling and comfort, the Strada Italia delivers unparalleled performance:

  1. Reactivity: Our in-house engineering technology ensures that the more you push, the more energy you receive in return. Short chainstays provide the feel of a pure racing bike, perfect for those moments when you need to up the pace.
  2. Handling: With a balance of torsional stiffness and compliance at the headtube, the Strada Italia offers precise handling, instilling confidence in riders, especially during fast descents and challenging corners.
  3. Comfort: Refined carbon layup, particularly in the lower seat tube area, provides engineered vertical compliance without sacrificing energy transfer, ensuring a comfortable ride even on rough roads.

Enhancing performance geometry and wide tires

The Strada Italia’s enhancing performance geometry and optimization for 30 to 35-mm WAM (Width As Measured) tires further enhance its comfort and aerodynamic capabilities. Safety, confidence, and efficiency are prioritized, allowing riders to achieve their optimal aerodynamic position and performance potential on any road surface. Whether on perfect tarmac, rough concrete, cobblestones, or even easy gravel, the Strada Italia maintains stability and its distinctive feel without compromising performance.

Aerodynamics for real riders and aero maximization

Our commitment to aerodynamics extends beyond frame design to cockpit choice and flexibility. Utilizing Integrale technology, Aeroflux carbon bars, and carbon MORE stem, riders can conceal hydraulic hoses internally while still customizing their position for a perfect fit. After all, aerodynamic optimization is only theoretical if the rider cannot maintain an aero position due to discomfort, hindering their own aerodynamic efficiency.

In response to new UCI regulations, we’ve maximized the frame’s aerodynamic performance, evident in its deep yet narrow headtube profile and downtube designed to perfectly shield bottles. Groupset compatibility is tailored for electronic systems, adopting the UDH (Universal Derailleur Hanger) system.

Continuing our tradition, each Strada Italia frame includes a small transparent section, offering a glimpse of the carbon fiber weave across the Verde, Bianco and Rosso colour schemes. The Project X version is also available for lovers of a “naked” finish. Finally, for those who prefer to customize their frame, the “Ready to Paint” version will also be available.
