Giro d'Italia 2009 – De Rosa´s TimeTrail Bike »Kron Formula«

Kron Formula
The ways of carbon are infinite and Kron shows how true that is: its monocoque structure is composite fibre, conceived with special sections and thickness elements, seems designed by the wind. It is produced in three different sizes. Its aggressive structure takes into account not only the aerodynamic factors but others too, such as rigidity and lightness, essential in time races.
