Show Description

Exquisite in every way. The Strato Faster features near-telepathic handling and lightning-fast acceleration, making it a full-blown criterium weapon. The layered high-modulus carbon fiber frame features a unique rear-triangle for unparalleled stiffness. Unlike other carbon frames, it features strategically placed aluminum reinforcements for a degree of stiffness and ride that's unlike anything on the market. The mega-sized BB86.5 bottom bracket is slightly raised to allow pedal clearance through tight corners. Svelte and stiff Fulcrum Racing 3 wheelsets are stiff enough for sprints and light enough for alpine switchbacks. Carefully selected aluminum components, and 11-speeds of Shimano Ultegra beauty provide a gear range for sprint-line finishes or gradient heavy suffer-fests. Precise and powerful brakes provide performance and nuanced modulation. To further distinguish the Strato Faster from the pack, a beautifully carbon fibre stem and carbon/aluminum handlebar elevate it to future-classic status.
