The De Rosa Idol is reintroduced to the De Rosa range for 2014 and returns encompassing the many new trends in road bike design. The design, geometries and materials used are all optimised for the utilisation with disc brakes. The Idol also offers a frame and fork manufactured using Super High-Modulus carbon fibre and features full internal cable routing.
Two types of Super High-Modulus carbon fibre are used in the manufacture and both maintain a balance between structural rigidity, vibration absorption and weight. The frame is a blend of T1000 (70%) and T800 (30%) carbon, thereby guaranteeing structural rigidity, absorption capacity and lightness to a very high level. The result is a lightweight and comfortable, modern frame that features the unique style and flair that comes with owning a De Rosa.
The Idol disc comes kitted out with Shimano's 11 speed Di2 Ultegra groupset, providing precision electronic shifting and the enormous stopping power of the new BR-R785 hydraulic disc calipers.
The 4 arm chainset is lighter and stiffer than many 5 arm designs. The offset four arm design provides stiffness where it is needed most in the pedal stroke, ensuring all the effort you are putting in with your legs goes straight to the rear wheel.
Finally, completing the package is the 3T finishing kit, with a Prologo Keppa ti 2.0 saddle topping it off. The Idol is a bike designed for the serious cyclist wanting more from the bike. Each model is comes available in 6 sizes
Each bike is fully built, tested and tuned by Wiggle's team of qualified bike mechanics to ensure you're bike arrives in perfect condition. To find out which size fits you click on the size guide tab above.

Few bike brands can claim to be as beautifully crafted or as lovingly made as De Rosa – so we're understandably excited about stocking them @ Wiggle. Formed in 1953, De Rosa is synonymous with everything cyclists know and love about Italian bikes: passion, master craftsmanship, skill and precision. Whether it's the hand-finished steel Neo Primato frameset which catches your eye or the Merak Carbon, all bikes are created with the same close attention to detail by the family-run De Rosa company, which is based in Milan. These are the bikes which Ugo de Rosa dreamt of building as a teenager. More than half a century later, his dreams are reality and countless champions have ridden – and still ride – his prestigious bikes. His love and enthusiasm for cycling is reflected in every single bike made. A De Rosa bike is the kind of bike you buy and keep forever...

Getting the Right Fit
At Wiggle we measure each of our bikes to build accurate size charts for our customers. Our qualified team of mechanics then individually check each order, against measurements supplied by you, to ensure the size chosen is correct. Another reason you can have complete confidence when buying a bike from Wiggle!
If you are on the change over between sizes both options will fit. Racers and experienced riders would usually select a smaller size as this offers quicker handing. A larger bike offers more stability and is more suited to new and intermediate riders.
