Tommaso Volo SRAM Force Road Bike (Professional Race)
Carbon Tommaso Volo: The Tommaso carbon Volo not only hits the sweet spot in carbon road bikes-it steps on the gas and goes right through it! With the highly touted road rider and press favorite SRAM Force components on board this purchase is a no-brainer. Velo News, cyclingnews.com, Road Bike Action and many other cycling sources have said that the SRAM Force is so good people don t need to consider its more expensive (Tour de France winning) bigger brother SRAM Red. To complete the package the Tommaso Volo sports a carbon fork with carbon steer, FSA compact 34/50 AL6061/T6 Gossamer crank with MegaEXO oversized cartridge bearings, Tommaso Racing Series saddle and speedy Mavic Aksium wheels. The Volo starts with a light and responsive 950 gram (56cm) monocoque 12k carbon weave racing frame. The TRS monocoque frame and carbon fork with carbon steer have been engineered to handle quick, float up mountains and carve down the other side. The SRAM Force Double Tap, ""ZeroLoss technology shifters are paired with the SRAM Force Exact Actuation rear derailleur provides a precise 3mm shift increments and SRAM Force front derailleur. The sure feeling SRAM shifter/brake controls allow for sure handed shifting and braking without removing your hands from the handlebars. The SRAM Force Double Tap controls also incorporate a reach adjust feature for customization to any hand size. The TRS Tommaso saddle has more padding on the saddle s pressure points to aid with comfort. The FSA Gossamer compact crank with external bottom bracket bearings is ideal for cyclist looking to get to the next level. The 50/34 chainring combination on the crank is a slightly smaller gear for those of us that aren t racing the Tour de France this year. It enables the user to climb with less stress on the knees and joints while cruising quickly along the flats and descents. The compact crank makes for less complex shifting than a triple and is lighter.
