The Protos is De Rosa's Flagship jewel and one of the most beautiful race frames in the world. It is the culmination of precision artisan craftsmanship gained from over 50 years of championships and know how.
The Protos is a study in elegance, speed and craftsmanship for the racing connoisseur. Classic geometry, stiffness and aerodynamics make this one of the most competitive mid-to-high range race frames in the world. It is made to order and can be made with custom geometry and paint, tailored to the individual rider.
Using an exotic mix of high modulus carbons produces a lightning fast and graceful bike that is ultimately compliant. The overall geometry is semi-sloping, the head tube is tapered and the tubes are proportioned for the perfect amount of lateral stiffness. All this, yet surprising overall comfort for century races.
The aerodynamic fork, huge down tube and chainstays also means the Protos is build for high, stable speed. The Protos is the ultimate, race-winning tool and the highest state of art from De Rosa.
The Protos is available in either mechanical or electronic-component configurations.
