De Rosa (Italy) – De Rosa launched their third generation Protos.
"I am only satisfed with the very best in everything and my very best as it relates to the contents of my garageis my Protos, something that I have wanted for quite along time. Having demonstrated to myself that I was able to participate in a Granfondo, I decided it wasworth trying to win the next time but in order to win, in addition to strong legs, capacity in the lungs and the ability to focus the mind one requires a great bicycle, one that layers the best possible aerodynamics on great design and technical characteristics. Protos is this and much more", shared De Rosa.
"The base material is a clever mix of 4 carbon fbers, applied and combined to exactingspecifcations in order to achieve a unique result knownas CM63 composed of high and ultra-high moduluscarbon. It is difcult to describe its essence without feeling the sensation one feels when riding the bike. Its responsiveness is masterful. It is a racing bike, but much more than that. It is a force multiplied, the culminationof a study, the answer to the need to build one’s ownvictory using its power", they added.
"The Protos has elevated the rules of the game, creatinga new horizon, it nourishes ambition and as a fertile soil to the seeds of our competitive nature. Riding my Protos i am now one with the professionals i follow and witheach and every breath I am able to imagine myself as one of them, sensing what it is like to be them. That work of art in my garage allows me to be part and parcel of abigger dream. I can just about taste the sweat of victory", they concluded about the 2018 Protos Road Bike.
