2015 Cipollini RB800
Cipollini RB800 or RB0.8K could be summed up as a true Italian thoroughbred with all the right trimmings. MCipollini RB800 is a true, one-piece monocoque frame, 100% handcrafted in Italy. Carefully designed and constructed by some of the top professionals in the field, the RB800 brags a modern design that highlights some of the traditional attractions of earlier bikes. The tiny head tube, resultant low-slung front end, plus a super-stiff ride feel means it's one for the racer, but a hint of softness at least allows enough comfort to still tackle longer rides.

It's no secret that Mario Cipollini, "Lion King", demands the punchiest frames to deliver his power towards forward movement. RB800 with its BB386 EVO bottom bracket, oversized downtube and chainstays does just that. Manufactured with the same high-grade T1000 M46J carbon as the RB1K but with frame geometry design for more efficient climbing position, this unique piece of art boasts the utmost lightness combined with outstanding reactivity making it ideal for many hours in the mountains while still being one of the most efficient bikes on flat terrains.
Never worry about being limited by your bike again. You can do just about anything on the road with your new RB800. Quickly gain speed for super-fast sprints, or use it to make extended treks through your favorite windy route. With the RB800, you’ll find yourself spending less time maintaining, and more time training on the road. The newest addition is built so strong that it comes with a 10 year warranty to ensure riding excellence over the years.
Forget about sacrificing design and capability for efficiency. Travels high up in the mountain trails are no problem for the RB800, and it handles road rides like a breeze. This model simply has it all, and you get the best of both worlds with this model.
Mario Cipollini doesn’t pick and lose, and you shouldn’t have to either.
