BARDIANI CSF FAIZANÈ: PRESENTED THE NEW BIKE OF THE ITALIAN ROAD CHAMPION FILIPPO ZANA. IT WILL BE A DOLOMIA MCIPOLLINI, WITH A SPECIAL DESIGN.
Here it is the new MCipollini Dolomia of the new Italian Champion Filippo Zana. A total black frame, with tricolor references and a bike customized in every detail, thanks to the perfect collaboration between the team partners who played a "team game". In fact, the Alanera handlebar and the RS4 DB wheels, both designed by Deda, the F30C saddle by Selle SMP and the Vico Glam bottle cage by Elite perfectly fits with the new tricolor design of the bike frame.
The latest tricolor tribute to Filippo Zana is the result of a perfect teamwork, worthy of that implemented by Filippo and his teammates at the recent Italian Championships in Alberobello. A perfect collaboration between the partners MCipollini and Deda, together with Selle SMP and with the contribution of Elite, has led to a unique result: the new Dolomia MCipollini, in a special tricolor design.
Made on the Dolomia frame, the same used by Filippo Zana for the conquest of the Italian road championship, the bike has a black color, with 4 tricolor inserts on the frame that will make it immediately distinguishable in a group from every angle. With a perfect teamwork, Deda Elementi has also completed the wonderful frame, with an Alanera handlebar in the tricolor edition and with the new RS4 wheels with Italian flag reference. The special saddle with tricolor dedication by Selle SMP and the bottle cage Vico Glam by Elite complete the work.
These are the words of Philippe Zecchetto, CEO of Diamant, owner of the brand MCipollini: “Being able to create unique design to celebrate the great successes achieved together is always a great honor for us. We are happy that Filippo Zana has achieved the Italian Road Championship victory, riding on our Dolomia. We hope that this new exclusive design will be a good wish for him to collect other successes together in the upcoming months.”
These are the words of Filippo Zana at the delivery of his new Dolomia:
“I am really happy and excited. I spend many hours every day on my bike, from trainings to races and with the MCipollini Dolomia I have developed a unique feeling. I am therefore happy that on a technical level I will continue to have the same characteristics, not only on the frame, perfectly responsive as demonstrated at the Italian championships, but also with the F30C saddle which is ideal for my characteristics and with all the components with which I won the tricolor, like the new Deda wheels which together with each component contributed to my success. At the same time, however, now on an aesthetic level I take a wonderful leap forward. Every detail, from the frame, to the handlebars, from the wheels, to the saddle is taken care of down to the smallest detail with a detail that recalls the Italian flag. The team and all the partners did a splendid job, also playing as a team, just like my teammates and I did in the Italian championship. I will have to pay them back, since from the very first races of this second part of the season.”
DOLOMIA, SPECIAL EDITION “TRICOLORE”, BY MCIPOLLINI.
The technical features:
With its 780 grams of lightness, the Dolomia frame allows Filippo Zana to stand out even in the toughest stages and in demanding races such as the last Italian championship. The Dolomia also maintains all the reactivity of Cipollini frames thanks to the 3K fabric that offers the best stiffness / weight ratio and the customized geometries for each of the sizes with the inclination of the specific seat tube. The maximum integration for the hydraulic wiring of the Sram AXS group is possible on this model thanks to the 1 ″ 1/2 headset optimized in constant collaboration with Deda, to the specific fork and to the Alanera handlebar. But that’s not all, the TCM (True Carbon Monocoque) technology, that is the real monocoque, allows the perfect connection of the wagon on the bottom bracket and seat tube, without gluing. The result? Filippo Zana and the Bardiani-CSF-Faizanè riders will suffer 26% less vibrations than their competitors.
ALANERA HANDLEBAR AND RS4 DB WHEELS, BY DEDA.
Deda Elementi has contributed to making Filippo Zana’s MCipollini unique, with a tricolor customization that goes from the Alanera handlebar to the RS4 DB wheels.
These are the words of Gianluca Cattaneo, director of Deda Elementi: “This special project represents a tribute to Filippo Zana and to the Italian success shared with Cipollini and the Bardiani-CSF-Faizanè team of Bruno and Roberto Reverberi. As an Italian company we are proud to combine our products with the Italian National Champion jersey.”
The RS4 DB wheel.
The RS4 DB wheel is the new set that officially debuted in competitions at the Giro d’Italia with the Bardiani-CSF-Faizané team. Just over a month after its debut, the new wheel is already “Italian Champion” together with Filippo Zana, when on the streets of Alberobello it “crossed the finish-line first”. For this reason, a special color could not be missing that sees the usual white, fading into tricolor shades starting from green to red. On a technical level, the tubeless ready rim has a 38 mm high profile that makes it suitable for any type of route. The design of the new “RS” hubs greatly improves the smoothness of the wheels for a higher speed.
The Alanera handlebar.
Same model, with which Filippo Zana has now developed a great feeling, but new design, with the tricolor extensively developed on the right side of the handlebar. Not only tricolor, on the white surface also a further customization that will make the bike unique, with the words “Filippo Zana, champion of Italy 2022”. The handlebar, a true icon of Deda Elementi design, allows complete integration of the cables inside the handlebar and frame, while the surface and the aero thicknesses are proof of the Lombard company’s constant search for “marginal gains” and the high quality look.
F30C SADDLE, BY SELLE SMP.
These are the words of Maurizio Schiavon when he delivered the saddle to the new Italian champion: “Filippo Zana’s victory at the Italian Championships makes us proud of the collaboration with the team headed by the Reverberi family and is a great proof of the validity of our saddles. The continuous road tests and the presence of our technicians with the riders to fine-tune the saddles is giving great satisfaction. The celebratory F30C is a tribute to Filippo Zana and a source of great pride for all of us.”
Filippo Zana’s choice for the 2022 season fell on the F 30C model, wider than other models for better seating on long and demanding routes such as that of the recent Italian championship, but at the same time shorter than the normal F30 to leave the ‘athlete greater freedom of movement when out of the saddle, a fundamental aspect both uphill and in occasions of high intensity actions such as those that allowed him the decisive action for the conquest of the tricolor.
In this unique tricolor edition, the saddle features an external tricolor embroidery, also recalled inside the saddle itself, and the celebratory inscription “Campione d’Italia”.
VICO GLAM BOTTLE HOLDER, BY ELITE.
Elite also supplied a special bottle cage, in the Vico Glam model, designed to enhance the tricolor details of the bike. Made of reinforced fiberglass, weighing only 29 grams in the Vico Glam, glamor and performance come together. The choice of this bottle cage, for the new MCipollini Dolomia of the new Italian champion Filippo Zana, is given by the finishing that reflects and follows the colors of the tricolor bike.
