Product Description

The harmonious pairing of British and Italian cycling stalwarts in a performance-orientated package that balances modern features with classic looks. Using the superlative 853 tubeset from Birmingham’s Reynolds Technology and the beautiful, recently updated 2015 Athena groupset from Vicenza based Campagnolo, the Volare 40 combines some of the finest of both British and Italian cycling heritage.

Like bacon and eggs, Bert and Ernie, Bonnie and Clyde, the pairing of Campagnolo to a steel road frame just ‘goes’. Alas, we know that looks are only a part of the equation and the bike has to deliver in the riding stakes too. Well, you’ll be pleased to know that we’ve got that covered too…

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. There’s normally a trade-off for the additional stiffness provided by these large diameter tubes, never more so than when using steel, however, thanks to 853’s high tensile strength (1250-1400MpA) we’re able to offset the increase in diameter with thinner walls thicknesses (down to 0.5mm in places), gaining the necessary increase in stiffness without the weight penalty.

Future-proofed with full internal Di2 capability, the Volare 40 is complemented by a ‘pro-compact’ (52/36T) Gossamer Pro chainset and Fulcrum’s highly regarded Racing 5 wheelset with upgraded C17 23/17mm new-school wide profile and CX hub sealing.

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’.
