2017 Passoni Fidia RTR

If you are lucky enough to feel like one of the five stock geometries of the Passoni Fidia RTR is perfect for you, then you can enjoy one of the most carefully designed and constructed bikes on the road much faster and at a more comfortable price point. Buying off the peg will also make delivery much snappier, which is always a plus.

When you are thinking of buying a bike like this, you aren’t necessarily looking to economize. You are looking to find the perfect bike to help you live your cycling passion. And that is certainly where all Passoni bikes excel. This is a brand that is most interested in making the best bikes they possibly can so you can enjoy every moment of your time on your rides. With the Fidia you are getting something else into the bargain: a new way of mixing the formula. They are taking two favorite frame materials, carbon and titanium, and uniting them in new special ways. Passoni have actually taken carbon and titanium filaments and woven them together so you are getting a new carbon structure that will offer a ride quality that feels vaguely familiar and wildly new at the same time. The hybrid tubes are all resined in Italy, and are shaped to maximize stiffness without sacrificing that ti cushioning that will be an essential component of the bike’s feel. Then the bottom bracket shell and the fittings all use a super strong grade 5 titanium to ensure durability and quick acceleration when you put the hammer down. They have given the rear triangle a wishbone shape at the seat tube/seatstays interface, to maximize rigidity and vertical compliance.

Don’t think that since this is not a made to measure version of the Fidia that you will be losing out on the quality side. On the contrary, they take an equal amount of care and focus on the small details just as much with every bike. That’s why barely one a day rolls off the production line, if you can call it that. So you can expect the handling to be as sharp and responsive as a customized version. A lot of the credit must go to the tapered head tube and the Passoni customized Columbus FEL full carbon monocoque fork. The light and stiff straight blade design gives a no-nonsense feel to the handling helping to keep everything stable with point-and-shoot accuracy. It has all been well thought out so that it can work well for a number of cycling situations, whether you are looking to hit the racing circuit or want to strike out on your own solitary centuries. It’ll be equally comfortable for a recovery ride with the kids and a four hour hammer fest on the Saturday morning club ride.

The Passoni Fidia RTR comes in five size options, and you can choose any color as long as its black. But the frame is so beautiful in its naked purity that you will want to have it with you always if only to gaze lovingly at it.
