De Rosa like to offer class and style with their bikes and the 2017 Idol 6800 covers both. Its full Ultegra gear and brake caliper setup give it drive and control, while the frame and fork give it the style and feel needed to conquer the roads ahead.

The IDOL was a must in the De Rosa production in the past and now it returns in a completely new project that encompasses the De Rosa experience and the new road cycling trends.
The IDOL frame is made from SUPER HI-MODULUS fibre with a blend of T1000 (70%) and T800 (30%), thereby guaranteeing structural rigidity, absorption capacity and lightness to their maximum.
IDOL is offered in six frame sizes.
Light action Vivid Shifting is just one of many features taken from Shimano’s top end groupsets, making the Ultegra 11 speed 6800 groupset a performance option for the masses.
The shifters and derailleurs incorporate Shimano’s Vivid Shift technology, with a light but positive feel all the way through the 11 speed drivetrain, giving you the gear you want, when you want it, with the minimum of effort.
With its two piece hollow axle design, the Shimano Hollowtech II chainset is both stiffer and lighter than a square taper chainset. Mounting the large diameter bearings outboard of the bottom bracket shell also provides increased stiffness and bearing life over standard cartridge units. With 52/36 compact gearing, you can tackle even the steepest climbs with confidence.
Ultegra Dual pivot brake calipers provide excellent braking power, with angle adjustable pads to ensure perfect pad alignment. A quick release lever aids installation and removal of wheels, for transportation or puncture repairs.
De Rosa have polished the Idol off with a set of Fulcrum Racing 4 wheels. These are sealed cartridge bearing hubs with double-walled alloy rims, with these combined you get a smooth rolling, low rotational and overall weight making it that little bit more easier to role along the open road. To top it of the wheelset has been wrapped with a pair of Vittoria Rubino tires to give you maximum grip around the corners.
Finally, completing the package is the 3T finishing kit, with a Prologo saddle topping it off.

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...

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.
