2017 Cipollini RB1K
Mario Cipollini, or as he is also known, the Lion King, stood atop the podium a total of 191 times, winning contest after contest. He is the ultimate sprinter, one of the fastest the sport has ever seen. So it should come as no surprise that the RB1000 is designed to be the utmost in speed performance.
The Cipollini brand is committed to doing all production in Italy and Bosnia: painting is done in Pisa, and the research and development, the conception and design, structural testing and the final assembly are done in Verona. The frame lamination is done in Bosnia. The finished frame may look like a thing a beauty, but it’s made for speed.
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 use their strength and speed to carry them 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.
Frame highlights include a longer, shallower fork and an oversize headtube to maximize stiffness. It is made of Toray T1000.M46J, a high modulus carbon fiber cloth. This material is made for stiffness. Also, BB386EVO bottom bracket keeps the cranks stiff.
The RB a great bike for events, races, and triathlons.. It may not be a bike you ride all day, but it’s definitely a bike you’ll hop on whenever you want to go fast.
