The latest model in the King range is this new King XS. This frame represents a new project for De Rosa rather than just a simple restyle. The most evident new feature is that the rear brake has been moved from its usual position and has been placed under the bottom bracket hidden from view. This new position allows for more powerful braking and means the traditional arch in the rear stays where the brake usually goes can be removed. This leads to increased comfort without compromising the performance and lends itself nicely to help give the frame clean lines. The structure of the rear triangle is also different; this is due to the front wheels close proximity to the downtube, an innovation that means more vibrations can be dampened without compromising the stability or reactivity of the frame. The fork is also integrated adding to the clean line approach taken by De Rosa on this frame. The frame is made from a blend Ti1000, Ti800 and XN10 and the frame is made in a semi sloping style. Seat Post included but brake calipers and stem are not. Features: Material: Ti1000, Ti800 and XN10 Carbon Fibre Steerer: 1.1/8"-1.5" Bottom Bracket: set up for BB 30 Forks: Integrated carbon forks
