Cinelli Superstar 12mm Thru Axle Road Bike Frameset. The Superstar is Cinellis cutting-edge carbon fiber re-interpretation of the mythical Italian stage-racing bicycle that is the brands heritage and DNA.Unlike other brands who each year offer bicycles with ever increasingly narrow scope of use, Cinelli, when developing the Superstar, obsessed over the way in which the inherent qualities of carbon fiber and its manufacturing processes could be employed to produce an aggressively contemporary version of the legendary versatility of the Italian Grand Tour ride quality i. To this end, the Superstar not only adheres to a traditional Italian racing geometry (72,5° headtube, 415mm chainstays), but is also characterized by.
The shaping of the forms of the frame to allow the greatest precision and customization of the lay-up of different grades of carbon in the construction process. Note, for example, how the tangent lines joining the top and down tubes to the head tube allow for the carbon fiber to remain completely straight thus offering the maximal weight-to-stiffness ratio.
The proprietary bowed top tube, whose form allows for a controlled deformation of the top tube headtube when the frame is subject to strong vertical or horizontal forces such as potholes, poorly surface roads etc. The use of both external and unlike the majority of other models on the market internal PU moulds during the carbon curing process, allowing for greater compression of the fibers as well as minimizing the amount of resin needed and greatly increasing long-term reliability of the frame. After spending the last 13 years in the professional peloton riding for teams such as Quick Step and Team Sky, in 2017 Davide Viganò raced and won the Red Hook Criterium series with Team Cinelli Chrome. In additional to select fixed gear criteriums, Davide raced a calendar of prestigious North American road criteriums including Speed Week and Tulsa Tough.
He raced these criteriums alone, without the luxury of team mate or mechanic, often finishing on the podium. The Superstars bowed top tube allows for the bikes headtube and fork to remain noticeably more (8%) parallel to their original position, allowing the rider to more easily control the bike in difficult terrain. The controlled deformation of the top tube also reduces the loss of surface contact at the rear wheel, further improving the riders ability to control the bike.
