In the late ‘90s while visiting the Mediterranean coastal town of Laigueglia Ugo De Rosa saw first-hand the new American trend of building bikes using aluminium. Ugo intuitively realized the need to capitalize on the trend and improve it by infusing it with Italian design and performance. De Rosa’s aluminium frame was born and grew to become the Scandium, a very light frame that matches the performance standards of carbon but is more rigid.
The Scandium is truly the vanguard of modern design and performance in aluminium. This frame can be bought with the geometry we have listed or if you wish, can be made completely custom using your own bikefitted measurements and even a custom paint finish. This is at an additional cost to be quoted before placing an order with De Rosa.
