The Gladiatore frame has been thoroughly and intensively machine tested to confirm longer life under tougher conditions. These important tests establish if a frame belongs to the Dedacciai Strada range and can pass and exceed the upgraded EN 14781 standard.
The Gladitore frame weights 1050g in the painted M size. It has a clean and pure design which conveys its intended use: distance. The main monocoque and the rear triangle use Toray carbon fibres and active epoxy resin using our Anti Wrinkle Process.
The frame building process is called Nano Technology. The Dedacciai manufacturing technology is based upon a special epoxy resin which is able to fill the microscopic spaces between carbon fibres and the molecules in order to bond the fibres to each other with a longer life for the frame. That process allows production of a fibre and resin Pre-preg composite which has better qualities compared to ordinary Prepreg. Less carbon fibres, reducing total frame weight, and a high torsion ratio are the main features of Nano Technology.
The A.W.P process has focused particular attention to the stressed sections: bottom bracket, head tube and seat tube in order to maintain high stiffness ratio and maintain parallel alignment of the wheel axes during the pedal stroke.
The comfort element is represented by the thin seat stay characterized by antishock shapes which endow the frame with both shock damping and rigidity.
A tapered head tube with 1"1/8 top and 1"1/2 bottom bearings provides the torsional stiffness required for precise steering. The Gladiatore is available with the classic BSA bottom bracket, affordable and solid. The cable routing is for mechanical, not electronic, systems and is completely internal. The 31,6 mm seat tube is synonymous with comfort and reliability.
The F-92 monocoque fork has carbon crown, blades and drop-outs. The fork, with a total weight of 380 gr painted, completes the comfort of the frame. Gladiatore offers a great balance in terms of quality, price and supporting the rider with a 2 year warranty.
Features Dedacciai's AWP Technology: AWP or 'Anti Wrinkle Process' is Dedacciai's own precise process of creating carbon frames. Unlike other companies who use balloons to fill the inside the frames, which leaves wrinkles, Deda injects foam which fills out all microscopic imperfections to ensure that the carbon finish is silky smooth, resulting in consistently strong frames.
