The De Rosa 888 SuperKing frame develops the range De Rosa 848-838 and is at the top of it.
The new frame is in the versions R, SR and E. The model E is specific for the Campagnolo groupset EPS, the battery is integrated into the frame. R and SR models are instead dedicated to mechanical units, with model R dedicated to Shimano groupset, and SR dedicated to Campagnolo Super Record groupset; you can also adopt a Campagnolo groupset on the R model and a Shimano on SR. The frame 888 SuperKing is made with a mix of 3 different types of carbon fibers, MR-60 (295 GPA/5800MPA), HR-40 (390GPA/4610MPA) and NGF's 630GPA; in addition were added structural reinforcements at the points of greatest stress with high carbon fiber module. The profile of the tubes is undoubtedly personal, aero but not extreme; the traditional seatpost is maintained, already seen on the models 838-848, here with aero profile. The bike has the high quality assembling present on all De Rosa bikes, with the groupset fully adopted, FSA components aligned to the group's quality and a wide choice of wheels. The frame kit is priced lower than Euro 3000, proportioned to the build quality of the frame. A bike with a very good ride comfort and marked by very high performance and a high overall quality. A good choice for those looking for a high-end model that is not extreme, but with quality performance.
