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, but the Idol also comes fitted with the classic caliper brakes also (supplied). The Idol offers a frame and fork manufactured from Super High-Modulus carbon fibre and features full internal cable routing, complete Shimano Ultegra 11 speed groupset, and the latest generation and most futuristically designed frames.
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 comes complete with Shimano's Ultegra 11 speed groupset that delivers crisp and ultra-reliable shifting at the push of a lever. The Ultegra compact chainset design (4 spider) has filtered down from it's more lustrious brother, Dura Ace, and offers excellent performance with every pedal stroke.
Braking is top-notch and delivers the performance, and stopping power, you'd expect from Shimano and the Ultegra groupset - silky smooth brake modulation that instills confidence and excellent reliability when required.
A pair of Fulcrum Quattro wheels are featured on the Idol and deliver excellent performance as well as being aero, strong and robust, especially for UK roads. A set of Continental Grand Prix 700x25c tyres encase these wheels and offer superb grip in most weather conditions.
Finally, completing this road race package is 3T and FSA. A 3T Ergosum Pro handlebar, 3T Arx stem and a FSA (De Rosa/SL-K) seatpost come supplied with a Selle Italia SLR 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 and two colour options (grey and black/white).

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...
