THE MAKING

10 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE

For the making of the Vélobici/Di Luca Continental, Danilo’s 10 years’ experience at the top level of professional road cycling comes to the fore.

Di Luca has combined the best carbon available on the market, the unidirectional Toray T800, using the monocoque technique, resulting in a beautifully crafted frame that exceeds expectation.

By redefining shapes and structures, Di Luca has been able to develop an exceptional frame weighing just 800g (about the same as a British loaf of bread).

The most stressed areas of the frame, such as the bottom bracket and head tube, have been strengthened through the engineering of a main triangle from full carbon and the monocoque technique. The full frame has then been assembled using junction gluing, which brings together the rear triangle and main triangle. The choice of the unidirectional Toray T800 (UD) comes from the need for major resistance against breakages, combined with the highest rigidity, whilst still keeping the frame super light.

The shape of the frame has been designed and developed to bring together everything one desires from a top level road bike: maximum traction rigidity, complete comfort on long distances and incredible responses. The 410mm frame, in partnership with the angle of the steerer, gives the Vélobici/Di Luca Continental incomparable grip and balance when at high speed; it really is the perfect machine on every level of style and performance.
