The De Rosa Protos:
Prototypical Perfection

Despite their modest public profile, De Rosa is a name of towering respect in cycling, and the Protos is their flagship model. It's the stiffest, fastest frame they've ever created, yet it doesn't ditch the elegance for which the brand is known. Those aesthetics are as fanciful as they are functional, which is why R&A loves this bike. The small Italian firm's handful of engineers individually select all of the materials that will form the tubing for each Protos, and all painting is done meticulously by hand by local Italian artisans. It's as breathtaking to behold as it is to ride.

De Rosa Protos

Bred and Born in Italy

The Protos is the culmination of De Rosa's 60-year history of crafting some of the world's finest bicycles. The carbon for each Protos is hand-selected and hand-layered at De Rosa's factory in Milan by the company's small number of gifted engineers.

Powerful and Purposeful

The striking and purposeful design of the Protos speaks directly to the frame's performance, as the massive downtube illustrates. The Protos is up to a staggering 35% laterally stiffer than its mainstream competitors. Simply step on the pedals, and it rockets forward.

Not for the Faint of Foot

The Protos does not try to be an everyday bike for an everyday rider. The engineers intentionally did not soften the ride of the Protos too much, because the racers for which it is designed like to feel their speed over the road, for maximum control and communication with the bike.
