And of course like any De Rosa it looks amazing and will be the pride of your club run!
De Rosa Frame and Fork:
Manufactured from high modulus carbon fibre, and completely revamped, with three versions available (R, SR, (both mechanical) and E (electronic)), its manufactured using three types of composite fibres (MR60, HR40, and NGF 630GPA). These combined offer excellent structural reinforcements to an already well manufactured carbon frame. The structure of the frame is certainly refined and advanced and provides a low overall frame weight, but with high rigidity and better absorption of road vibration. A full carbon tapered fork is also supplied. Braze on front mech hanger, double water bottle bosses, and full internal cable routing throughout as standard.
Campagnolo's Record 11 Speed Groupset:
The 888 comes supplied with Campagnolo's Record 11 speed groupset which performs extremely well and is synonymous with countless Campagnolo victories in professional and non professional racing. A blend of carbon and alloy makes the Record groupset stand out from the crowd. Shifting and braking are superb with the shifting being smooth and precise at all times and braking being responsive, strong and progressive. The levers provide excellent hand comfort, when on the hoods - ergo design, with all controls in easy reach of your fingers. The chainset is also Campagnolo and comes in the form of a compact, which makes life that bit easier when the terrain starts to get hilly.
Record uses many of the same technologies from it's other 11 speed brothers and provides high quality movement, operation, and pro performance all round.
As mentioned, the 888 comes fitted with Campagnolo's Record 11 speed chainset and in the form of a compact (50x34). Couple this with the rear cassette and you have a good mix of gears (22 to be exact) that will enable you to climb the steepest of hills with relative ease and/or to thrash down that favourite piece of road at full speed.
Wheels and Braking:
A pair of Fulcrum Racing 1 wheels are supplied with the 888 with these being hand assembled then electronically tested to ensure maximum performance and reliability is achieved everytime. These also come wrapped with a pair of Continental Grand Prix tyres offering great grip. These wheels offer excellent reactive acceleration, ample traction and stability in the corners, and are ideal for trading pulls at the front of the pack or when tackling a tricky technical descent. Well known for their outstanding performance, the Racing 1's are a lovely set of lightweight alloy wheels that accompany the 888, and it's groupset nicely. The wheels come in at 1465g a pair.
The Finishing Kit:
High quality 3T finishing components, such as their Ergosum Pro handlebar and ARX Pro stem, provide the front-end handling controls, whilst the Prologo saddle, which sits upon the De Rosa aero carbon seat post, gives you the comfort you need as the miles roll by. A great finishing kit bundle that gives you complete comfort and reliability whilst out on the roads.
