The IDOL was a must in the De Rosa production in the past and now it returns in a completely new project that encompasses the De Rosa experience and the new road cycling trends. The Idol frame is made from Super Hi-Modulus carbon fibre with a blend of T1000 (70%) and T800 (30%), thereby guaranteeing structural rigidity, absorption capacity and lightness to their maximum.
In addition to the high-quality construction of the frame, it also features unique ‘Arc Slope’ flowing tube profiles on the top tube and downtube. These are designed to absorb and disperse unwanted vibrations from the road, providing a more comfortable and efficient riding experience.
Rest assured that each frame is fully prepped by Wiggle's team of qualified bike mechanics to ensure it arrives in perfect condition. Find out which size fits you by clicking the size chart tab.
Few bike brands can claim to be as beautifully crafted or as lovingly made as De Rosa – so we're understandably excited about stocking them @ Wiggle. Formed in 1953, De Rosa is synonymous with everything cyclists know and love about Italian bikes: passion, master craftsmanship, skill and precision. Whether it's the hand-finished steel Neo Primato frameset which catches your eye or the Merak Carbon, all bikes are created with the same close attention to detail by the family-run De Rosa company, which is based in Milan. These are the bikes which Ugo de Rosa dreamt of building as a teenager. More than half a century later, his dreams are reality and countless champions have ridden – and still ride – his prestigious bikes. His love and enthusiasm for cycling is reflected in every single bike made. A De Rosa bike is the kind of bike you buy and keep forever...

Getting the Right Fit
At Wiggle we measure each of our bikes to build accurate size charts for our customers. Our qualified team of mechanics then individually check each order, against measurements supplied by you, to ensure the size chosen is correct. Another reason you can have complete confidence when buying a bike from Wiggle!
If you are on the change over between sizes both options will fit. Racers and experienced riders would usually select a smaller size as this offers quicker handing. A larger bike offers more stability and is more suited to new and intermediate riders.
