Zappi Bike..almost ready

The frame is a light, stiff and well balanced machine. It’s not only stunning to look at but intimidating as well. It’s no wonder when you tally up the list of features this frameset has to offer…
Unidirectional Toray (torayca) high modulus T1000G & intermediate modulus T800 & T700 carbon fiber, to a 3k finish. Built with Veloforma TTPcarbon process – Time, Temp and Pressure in the right order is what yields a design specific racing bicycle.
Tube2Tube process with ISP (integrated seat post). For lighter weight, better power transfer in climbs and sprints.
Over sized tubing brings greater over all stiffness, responsive ride, plus great design style.
Integrated carbon dropouts designed into the rear stays for lighter weight – carbon drop outs are stronger than alloy in MPA ratings.
Tapered Head tube 1 1/8” -1.1/4” designed for greater stiffness and strength. Allowing the bike to track better when descending and cornering at speed.
BB30 Bottom bracket linked to Over sized chain stays creates greater stiffness and power transfer to the pedals.
A medium size frame with uncut seat mass weighs less than a 950grams, the fork is a scant 340grams. Built with Camp Super record or SRAM Red and a pair of racing tubular and you easily approach 14 pounds, 454 grams under the UCI limit.
