Integrated seat clamp

Semi-integrated seat-clamp with an oval profile and an integrated seat-stay in the top tube line.

Integrated Cable System

The exclusive system of Fondriest integrated cables. Cables go through the down tube and they are in a condition of perfect suspension, in fact there are no guides or interior tubes that may interfere with the correct functioning of gear transmission. The special integrated guide, that is the special red engineering resin “heart”, have a unique draw of guide channels aligned to direction.

ULTRA THIN SEAT STAYS

Ultra Thin Seat Stays - The smaller seat-stays reduce weight and do not compromise the strength and stiffness of the frame.

VIBRATION ABSORBING SYSTEM

Vibration Absorbing System - The special curved seatstays absorb vibration better, which protects the strength of the frame and comfort for the cyclist.

VIBRATION SUPPRESSOR

V.S. (Vibration Suppressor) - The innovative connection of the seat stays with the anterior triangle allows vibrations to be absorbed along the seat tube preventing them from being propagated towards the athlete.

4 Peaks Rear
The particular trapezoidal design allows for a stiffer and stronger structure of the entire frame.
S-DAMPING SYSTEM

S-Damping System - The “S” design of the seatstays eases vibrations caused from collisions with the ground and favour the fatigue life of the structure and the comfort of the seat.

Dual Pivot Brakes

The direct-attached dual pivot brakes provide much improved breaking power compared to standard caliper brakes.

Horizontal Rear brake

Disk brake post mounted on chain stay. This solution allows a more appealing shape, better braking performances and weight reduction.

FONDRIEST FRONT DERAILLEUR DIRECT-MOUNT

Fondriest Front Derailleur Direct-Mount - The derailleur is mounted directly on the tube without the use of a hose clamp, for improved rigidity and a lighter bike.

TA12 (Through Axle 12mm)

TA12 (Through Axle 12mm)- 12mm through axle system improves stiffness and riding precision.

27,2mm. Seat Post

27,2mm. Seat Post allows to reduce the weight of the bike, keeping torsional stiffness.

UCI logo

The frame complies with the current protocol officially approved by UCI.

Disc brake

DISC BRAKE - Same braking performance in any condition. Less stress for the rim due to lack of overheating, lower rotating inertia, and no weight increase
