2015 Cipollini RB1000
Cipollini RB1000 is the heart and soul of Mario Cipollini who never ceased to push the limits of his tools.The Cipollini RB1000 IS Mario Cipollini. In other words, it is designed for riders like MCipollini - simply born to go fast. Just like his colorful personality, MCipollini brings us a new array of colors for his line of carbon road frames in 2015. Through his years of experience, he realized that not all his power was always transferred to forward movement. Taking this frustration into his own hands, The ‘Lion King’ made it a quest to create a design that would bring out a bike’s fullest potential. It became his obsession.
Through carefully engineered frame geometry and carbon construction, this stiff yet light race frame was designed for EXTREME POWER TRANSFER. Cipo wanted to give his riders total control over of the bike and uses your strength to carry you to victory. The RB1K is a true, single-piece monocoque frame that will give you extraordinary capabilities for the most extreme and advanced road-riding available. It’s design is incredible, that is 100% handmade in Italy (down to the nuts and bolts), integrated seatpost, oversized headset, and BB386EVO bottom bracket system, a lighter, more efficient system. THIS is a frame Super Mario would use if he were to race again today.
Cipollini’s obsession and his passion led him to discover the perfect ratio between frame lightness and drivetrain efficiency. Noted for his sprinting ability, Il Re Leone made certain that the frame was stiff aiding you not only in your sprints, but climbing as well. With just a few pedal strokes on the RB1000, you can feel its desire to soar. It even feels like you’ll have to hold the bike back from taking you off to the speed of sound. It transfers every single drop of energy you exert straight to the rear wheel. There is nothing but forward movement.
MCipollini found the missing pieces that he’s been looking for in a race frame with the RB1000 and is now providing you, the rider, the opportunity to go as fast as the wind. This is “ The Champion, The Power, His Tool.”
