The presentation of the range Bottecchia was an opportunity to analyze the current development of the bike in the medium term, according to the vision of Bottecchia, well represented by the Turano Family and all the Bottecchia staff.
In the range road frame weight continues to be a great reason to sell, but not as strong as in the past, better to focus on customizing and stiffness weight, that have a light bike, but also stiff. Another key element is the generalization of the internal cable and the unification of the frame, that accepts all groupsets on the market. Another important aspect is the realization of the frames in Italy, at least in high and medium-high price. Still timid is the presence of road bike with disc brakes, obviously not so obvious a commercial success, so before to invest resources in costly projects better to wait. The low-end market is always manned by aluminum frames, while steel and titanium have numbers so small that their production can be profitable only for small manufacturers. In Mtb witnessing the complete departure from the scene of the 26er, which still remains in the only model with full long travel of 160 mm, while the rest of the range is focused on 27.5er and 29er. Also in the range Bottecchia starting to show the rigid fork, a technical increasingly present in the new range of bikes, in addition to Sram 1x11. For the rest, even in MTB carbon frames firmly guarding the high range, while aluminum is present in the low-end market. Even more than in the street, steel and titanium are reserved for small manufacturers.
