For the new SS26 we have taken the very best elements of the original frame and reconfigured the geometry to make this bike perfect for all day riding and endurance events. With modern features such as the hidden aero seatpost clamp, large BB shell and oversized headtube and downtube, the SS26 is fast but still comfortable, offering excellent cornering, as well as high-level impact and vibration absorption; all of this without sacrificing weight or stiffness.
The SS26 takes its name from the picturesque road that links the Italian and French sides of Mont Blanc in the Aosta valley, brought to fame by the opening sequence of the cinematic classic The Italian Job, where the Lamborghini Miura meets a dramatic end.
Just like the superlative Miura, the SS26 is technically innovative as well as thing of beauty.
FLATTENED STAYS: using a flattened seat stays, the new SS26 improves the ride quality of its predecessor.
BOTTOM BRACKET: The wider 86.5x41mm BB shell increases the SS26’s stiffness under pedalling loads.
ELECTRONIC GROUPSET READY: The SS26 is compatible with all brands of electronic groupsets should you wish to upgrade the components.
CARBON CONSTRUCTION: Using a blend of Toray Carbon fibres, the SS26 is a perfect combination of strength, stiffness and weight.
TAPERED HEAD TUBE: A tapered head tube adds additional strength and high torsional stiffness to the frame as well as providing pinpoint steering accuracy.
