De Rosa like to offer class and style with their bikes and the 2017 Idol 6870 covers both. Its full Ultegra Di2 gear and brake caliper setup give it drive and control, while the frame and fork give it the style and feel needed to conquer the roads ahead.

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 fibre with a blend of T1000 (70%) and T800 (30%), thereby guaranteeing structural rigidity, absorption capacity and lightness to their maximum.
IDOL is offered in six frame sizes.
With the same electronic shifting technology used on Shimano’s top of the line Dura Ace groupset and only a minor weight penalty over its more expensive sibling, it is no wonder the 11 speed 6870 Di2 Ultegra groupset has been so highly rated in the cycling press. Shimano’s Di2 electronic shifting is as precise and responsive as it gets, giving you the gear you want, when you want it, every time, with the minimum of effort. The Di2 system is fully programmable with features such as multishift, allowing you to hold a shift button down for a full sweep through the cassette. With its two piece hollow axle design, the Shimano Hollowtech II chainset is both stiffer and lighter than a square taper chainset. Mounting the large diameter bearings outboard of the bottom bracket shell also provides increased stiffness and bearing life over standard cartridge units. With 52/36 compact gearing, you can tackle even the steepest climbs with confidence.

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...
The size chart below will get you on the right size bike. Experienced riders may also wish to refer to the geometry chart for more detail.
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.
