Drawing upon everything we’ve learnt from 3 seasons of racing steel in the pro peloton, the Volare Stainless combines the outstanding good looks and stainless durability we’ve grown to know and love with truly top-drawer componentry to create a capable, somewhat more accessibly priced stainless steel road rocket to sit just below our Reynolds 953 flagship model.We've called upon new frame material partner KVA to utilise their outstanding MS3 cold-drawn, seamed stainless steel tubeset and kitted it out with one of the most technologically advanced amateur road race gruppos available - Shimano's revolutionary 11speed electronic Ultegra Di2. The frame is fully internal Di2-specific with x3 discreet wire entry/exit ports and a seatpost mounted battery making for a clean and uncluttered aesthetic.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 MS3’s high tensile strength (1400MpA) we’re able to offset the increase in diameter with thinner walls thicknesses (down to 0.4mm in places), gaining the necessary increase in stiffness without the weight penalty.Whilst the lower section is concerned primarily with delivering unrivalled stiffness, the slender seatstays, Ø27.2mm seatpost and bi-oval toptube all work together to form a nice buffer between the road and rider, adding in some much needed compliance to make long days in the saddle a breeze.
Stainless. Electronic. Awesome.
