2017 De Rosa King XS

The De Rosa King XS follows the King dynasty with a bike engineered for Gran Fondo and endurance races. The King XS is the best combination of performance, light weight and agility.

The King series has always been synonymous De Rosa prestige. The new XS is the direct decedent of the first King series, but improving upon key aspects of frame compliance and aerodynamics. De Rosa has built the new frame with a top blend of T1000, T800 and XN10 carbon in strategic locations for the best mix of performance, comfort and low weight. For 2017, six exciting new colors have been introduced along with hidden direct-mount brakes for maximum stopping power and redesigned stays for ultimate comfort.

Aerodynamics are important for efficiency in any race or challenge, so the King XS was made to minimize turbulence and allow smooth air flow. The new frame has a number of features that help it cheat the wind. The rear brake is hidden behind the bottom bracket, keeping it away from the air flow path. The downtube and fork crown are also designed to channel and direct air.

The rear stealth direct-mount brake means that that the need for a brake bridge is gone. The advantage of this is thinner, more compliant stays for vertical flex on bad roads, significantly improving comfort. Its tapered head tube keeps the bike stable and responsive at high speeds as well as providing luxurious road feel and feedback.

The King XS is a beautiful, all-day comfort racer with cutting-edge efficiency. The King dynasty continues!
