Are you looking for the One? Formigli thinks this is the one. The one road bike you need. It wasn’t long ago that Formigli was teasing their new One road bike, and as the company seldom releases new frames it’s a special occasion for fans of the brand, and custom carbon road bikes alike. Part aero road bike, part Gran Fondo bike, part race bike, Formigli claims the One offers a perfect blend of rigidity and comfort. As usual, the One is only offered as a made to order custom bike with your choice of colors in matte or glossy finish like the glossy McLaren F1 esque paint job above.
More of the One, next.
Want custom painted, matching bars and stem? Formigli can make it happen. The front of the One houses a 1 1/2″ to 1 1/8″ tapered steerer with a high modulus carbon fork.
The One frame is constructed from T800 high modulus carbon fiber with a specialized lay up to offer both the stiffness and comfort Formigli was looking for. Calling it the highest performing and most comfortable bike Renzo has ever made, new carbon was employed to enable new shapes and tubes to create the bike. While the top tube and seatstays got smaller, the down tube and chainstays get bigger, all part of improving performance while smoothing out the ride.
There is also the curved seat tube with an aerodynamic shape to both stiffen the frame and make it faster. The non integrated but proprietary seat post is included with the frame, and painted to match – naturally.
Due to the custom nature of Formigli’s bikes, prices and geometries aren’t given. Have to know? Head over to Formigli and request a quote on a frameset or complete bike.
