2017 De Rosa Planet
Whether you are looking to buy your first carbon frame, or just want to have a nice, light, high quality carbon rig in your collection the De Rosa Planet will be a great option to give you the quality that you’d expect from a carbon De Rosa frame without paying a Kingly price.
By using a slightly heavier type of carbon than is used for the King or SK Pininfarina, De Rosa can make the Planet into a seriously accessible and affordable high quality carbon bike with just the slightest concession to weight. You can count on having the ultimate performance in terms of comfort, durability and style since the experts at De Rosa know how to design a bike that will score top marks on all of these points. The geometry is designed to be slightly sloping and offer a nice balance between aggressive racing and relaxed touring. You should be able to find a setup and position that will be comfortable enough to get you through your longest rides, while also feel snappy when accelerating up climbs or out of corners.
The carbon fork combining efforts with the tapered steerer tube will enhance the balance offered by the geometry and make sure you always feel stable and in control. The sculpted, oversized tubes meet neatly at the 68mm bottom bracket, promising to push the power through from your pedals to the road, with no wasted effort in flexy tubes. You don’t have to worry about it being a rattler, though, since the carbon layup has been designed to ensure just enough compliance to soak up nasty road chatter.
This is a rim brake only bike, and can accommodate either mechanical or electronic groupsets. The internal cable routing will keep everything looking neat and slick, too. It is available in five sizes and three color options. The De Rosa Planet will open up a whole new world of efficient cycling for you with its effortless control and elegant Italian looks. Whether you are heading out on a coffee ride or a Gran Fondo, this will be a bike to make the trip that much more enjoyable.
