Product Description

For downright bang-for-your-buck the Volare 30 takes some beating. The Heat-treated Reynolds 725 frame borrows not only the same BB86 press-fit BB shell and 360g full-carbon ADK fork adorning the higher tiered 40 and Stainless models but the same 1650g Fulcrum Racing 5 LG CX wheelset too.

With the bases covered, we took the decision to dress the Volare 30 in Shimano’s brand new 105 5800 series gruppo - getting the full trickle-down 11sp treatment from the Ultegra and Dura-Ace groupsets above. So that’s the same short lever throw, quick shifting, compact profile shifters, the same SLR-EV Dual Pivot brakes with increased power and modulation, and the same offset 4-bolt, stiff-yet-light hollow-forged chainset as employed above. God bless trickle-down tech!

Performance, value, durability - for once you can have all three; quite simply a brilliant groupset – road.cc (Oct 2014)

It all begins with the BB86 Press-fit BB shell, forming the building block to the lower assembly of the frame, engineered with the sole purpose of providing maximum stiffness. Not only does it form the basis for a wide and stout, efficient pedalling platform is also provides the real estate we need to run beefy Ø22.2mm oval chainstays and a ‘big-for-steel-road’ Ø34.9mm downtube. We’ve matched this up front with a Ø44mm oversize headtube and 1-1/2” – 1-1/8” tapered steerer fork, ensuring pinpoint sharp handling and tracking through the corners.

Alas, this is not just a bone-shaking, stiff race-focused road rocket. That legendary and ever-present steel ride feel is complemented by a Ø27.2mm and slim tapered seatstays, ensuring the Volare can both lay down the power when required but also be a comfortable, accommodating place to pedal away many-a-mile in all-day comfort.

The perfect no-nonsense winter trainer for those wanting a fast winter miles?

The ideal road rocket for amateur racers and speed demons after a rugged and robust classy crit racer or something a little different to the ‘norm’.
