Product description

Season : 2012
Code : DF80B
Weight : 0KG

The Dedacciai Assoluto RC is an evolution of the successful Assoluto and is new for 2012.

The Italian manufacturer Dedacciai (or Deda) may be more recognisable for their range of componentry that has been widely used on the Pro circuit for many years.  What many don’t know is that they are also a long established producer of quality tubing; they started with steel ('acciaio' means ‘steel’) before moving on to Titanium and Aluminium and now work extensively with carbon.

Like the Assoluto, the Assoluto RC frame is a carbon monocoque front triangle that is formed from Torayca T800 high modulus carbon fibre (Torayca are the Japanese masters of Carbon fibre and widely regarded as the best in the industry). The T800 fibre offers extremely good stiffness to weight numbers and its use at this price point is notable, most manufacturers using this fibre will be asking you to dig considerably deeper into your pot! The frame is largely unchanged from the standard Assoluto and uses the same box section tubing and curved shapes. The Deda ‘Surf’ fork is swooping in shape and adds a Pinarello-esque look to the unique styling. 

The most noticeable difference between the Assoluto and the RC is the move away from the ISP (Integrated Seat Post) which allows a little more flexibility both in fit and comfort. The other obvious change is that the RC frame has been specifically designed with the new generation of electronic groupsets in mind; cabling – be it mechanical or electronic – is now all internal which helps tidy the lines of the bike whilst protecting the cables themselves.

The shaped down-tube and oversized chainstays help create a stiff feel and the narrow, squared seatstays offer the rider the vertical compliance to keep them comfortable in the saddle mile after mile. The use of a tapered head-tube allows for an oversize lower headset bearing which helps to increase stiffness and steering precision.

The ride is impressive and similarly to the Assoluto has a definite ‘planted’ feel and no hint that it might put a foot wrong. The most noticeable difference is in the comfort, the lack of ISP adds to the already refined and comfortable ride of the standard Assoluto. The neutral handling is not quite as lively as some may want but gives an immediately confident ride which allows the pilot to sit back and put the miles in without having to ever ‘fight’ the bike.

The Assoluto RC is a well-designed and executed frameset that looks classy. It can be built with either existing mechanical or modern electronic componentry with the cabling tucked away neatly in the frame. If you are looking to upgrade your current frameset and would like to ‘future-proof’ then you would do well to consider the Assoluto RC, electronic groupsets will inevitably come down in price in years to come – when they do, your frame will be ready!

Delivery to the UK and Beyond

We send orders by either Royal Mail (small packets and low value items that will fit through letter boxes) or via a tracked service, which will require a signature on receipt. If there is nobody available at the delivery address to accept the delivery, a card will be left to inform the recipient how he or she can collect the parcel. It then becomes the recipient's responsibility to collect the parcel or rearrange delivery with the service. We accept no liability if the delivery is not made due to the recipient not being available. If the recipient fails to contact the service in good time the goods will be returned to us and a charge will be made for re-delivery to that or an alternative address.

In the event that you select a business address for delivery we shall be deemed to have delivered the order to its intended recipient by delivering it to the reception area of the business address.

We will deliver to the address as you enter it and cannot accept any liability for late or failed delivery if the quoted address is incorrect. Additional charges will be made for redirection or for re-delivery due to postcode error. We advise that if you are not sure of the address you should check it using the Post Office postcode and address finding service.

We are unable to accept orders for delivery to any address containing a PO Box Number.

 

Delivery to Unlisted Destinations

If your destination country is not listed in our shipping list, we may still be able to arrange delivery. In some cases/destinations it can be prohibitively expensive to ship goods so we will take the time to establish what you need and arrange a shipping quote and will do so on a case-by-case basis.

Please Contact Us listing the items you require and provide full contact details / billing address and telephone number. We will respond as soon as possible with a quote and with payment options.

 

IMPORTANT!

Pre-Order

With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!

Pre-Launch

With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

Estimated Delivery Dates

Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.
