Scapin Updates the Custom Ivor with More Options, More Colors
Looking for a custom, carbon road bike? Building on their original design, Scapin is expanding your options with their revised 2014 Ivor. Similar in overall design to the 2012 Ivor, Scapin is offering the custom build with more options including components, colors, and sizes.
See how Ivor has changed after the break!
One of the biggest structural changes to the Ivor is the addition of an optional adjustable aero seat post instead of the S-Way ISP. The ISP will still be available, but if you would rather have a more traditional adjustable seat post, it’s now an option. Additionally, the 2014 Ivor is lighter with a new Toray T-800 High Modulus UD carbon layup for their TT Matrix frame construction. Said to incorporate the best of both monocoque and hand wrapped tube to tube construction, TT Matrix combines the two build techniques in different areas of the frame in order to produce the stiffest, lightest frame that still has a great ride. Comfort is also provided through their CFS (Comfort Flex System) seat stays which were also found on the previous model. The slender, curved stays are designed to absorb more road vibration than standard stays, while maintaining the frame’s racy feel.
When you’re spending $4,995 on a frameset, the finish is just as important as the fit, so Scapin is offering 7 new color combinations including Naked black, Ruby Red (my personal favorite), neon Green, Yellow, Orange, Blue, and of course, the Italia white/red/green option above. The custom finish also includes the option for your name to be added to the top or down tube.
The Ivor is available in 6 stock sizes, or the optional full custom made-to-measure geometry. Frames are built with the ability to run mechanical or electronic internally routed cables, a tapered 1.5″ steerer, PFBB86 bottom bracket, and are all hand made in Italy and include a lifetime warranty.
Ivor frames are available through Stage Race Distribution, and to celebrate the launch of their new webstore, they are offering a special 10% discount from now until Christmas day with the use of coupon code “Intro10″!
