The Superking The top of the range of De Rosa is enriched by a new set of frames: the 888 SuperKing. Model “R” and “SR” are dedicated to all those who look for a hybrid frame that can work with mechanical or electronic shifting. A composition of 3 materials, an expert blend of 3 fibers employed and carefully measured to obtain a precise goal. The aim was to increase stiffness without impairing comfort, to lighten whilst maintaining a unique stability. The composition is made up of 55% TI 800 fiber, 35% TI 1000, and 10% XN60. The Superking increases the STW (stiffness to weight) value by 25% compared to traditional competition racing bikes. Shimano Ultegra Di2 Drivetrain With the same electronic shifting technology used on Shimano’s top of the line Dura Ace groupset and only a minor weight penalty over its more expensive sibling, it is no wonder the 11 speed 6870 Di2 Ultegra groupset has been so highly rated in the cycling press. Shimano’s Di2 electronic shifting is as precise and responsive as it gets, giving you the gear you want, when you want it, every time, with the minimum of effort. The Di2 system is fully programmable with features such as multishift, allowing you to hold a shift button down for a full sweep through the cassette. With its two piece hollow axle design, the Shimano Hollowtech II chainset is both stiffer and lighter than a square taper chainset. Mounting the large diameter bearings outboard of the bottom bracket shell also provides increased stiffness and bearing life over standard cartridge units. With 52/36 compact gearing, you can tackle even the steepest climbs with confidence. Ultegra Dual pivot brake calipers provide excellent braking power, with angle adjustable pads to ensure perfect pad alignment. A quick release lever aids installation and removal of wheels, for transportation or puncture repairs. 3T Finishing kit Finally, completing the package is the 3T finishing kit, with a Prologo Kappa Evo saddle topping it off. The Superking is a bike designed for the serious cyclist wanting more from the bike. Each model is comes available in 6 sizes.
