The monocoque structure of the R838, with its attractive lines, combines perfectly with the technical requirements necessary to participate in modern cycling, even for those approaching the sport and the world of DeRosa for the first time.
The compact chainset, with a wide range of sprockets on the cassette, gives you a large choice of gears for speed and for climbing. Many sportives events incorporate some nasty/steep climbs on the route so having a compact chainset makes life a little bit easier.
A frame that responds to the need for the maximum manoeuvrability, reliability and lightness. Its greatest advantage is the excellent relationship between quality and performance, making the R838 unbeatable and allowing athletes to make a spectacular entrance to the world of the De Rosa.

About the De Rosa brand
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.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 back in 1947. 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...
