Product Description

Please note: all of our bike models come with an EU standard brake setup. This will need to be reversed to comply with UK cycling standards.

The Serious Valparola Comp proves it’s possible to get your hands on an entry-level racing bike with all the virtues of a real racer – but without the four-digit price tag. Named after the picturesque Valparola Pass in the Italian Dolomites, its high-quality equipment and well-balanced riding characteristics make this model a great choice for riders interested in racing. 

The Valparola Comp's modern aluminium frame with carbon fork is fully equipped with reliable components. An 18-gear Shimano Sora system ensures precise gear changes with minimal rider intervention, whilst corresponding Shimano brakes promise safe and easy descents. With its light and fast-rolling aluminium wheels and sporty-comfortable sitting position, this model makes rolling along with your road bike club a real pleasure.

Super beginner bike
Super Einsteigerrad
Translated from German To the original

Perfect for the entry. Assembly was easy, but the circuit was awkward, so I had to bring the bike to a workshop first, because I could not solve the problem myself.

Perfekt für den Einstieg. Zusammenbau war einfach, jedoch war die Schaltung schief, so dass ich das Rad zunächst zu einer Werkstatt bringen musste, da ich das Problem nicht selbst lösen konnte.

Translated from German To the original

The assessment comes from the last year model (which shares the same name) which features nearly identical specifications.
