    STREAMLINE INTEGRATED STOPWATCH BEATER.

    From leading to trailing edge, the Scalini advances smooth airflow through the unseen barrier. Tipping the scale in the favour of the time trial specialist. Reduced frontal area and streamline integration, are at the heart of what gives the Scalini its advantage. Modular design allows for ease of disassembly and a complete tailored spectrum. Enabled with 11-Speed Ultegra/Dura-Ace, paired with BB86, it provides the optimum platform for light gear control and efficient power transfer. The Scalini is designed to meet the highest demand for Triathletes and Time-trialists alike. In a discipline of marginal gains, the design is outright optimized around performance. When it comes to breaking through the air barrier, we have left no stone unturned addressing Form, Surface and Interference Aerodynamic challenges.

    FRAME CONSTRUCTION.

    Constructed through expanded polystyrene (EPS) moulding. Preform moulding allows precise, uniform (wrinkle-free) and repeatable execution of the lay-up schedule. Uniform fibres increase strength reducing irregularities.

    INTERFERENCE.

    A leading edge fairing design on the seat tube, controls the airflow around the rear wheel, reducing the interference drag on the rear wheel. The integrated stem reduces interference drag between the frame and the stem, compared to traditional applications.

    WHY IT'S BEST.

    1. The cable routing on the Scalini is designed to make packing easier, as well as positioning the cables in a place that is aerodynamically favourable.
    2. A Vision Integrated hydration solution is considered in the design process - making sure that the resulting aero profiles positively influence aerodynamics and ease of use while riding.
    3. Behind the saddle, Scalini features and integrated storage solution. Stash your essentials out of the way in a purposefully designed storage box.
    4. Scalini comes standard with Artisan hand built Vision wheels. The utmost care and attention to detail goes into building these high quality deep dish wheels.
    5. Scalini more than just looks the part. This platform has been meticulously engineered and designed to offer the right tool for the job.
    6. Scalini geometry is holistically designed and tuned for racing the clock. Highly adjustable setup to increase performance, and further boost aero efficiency of the bike and rider as a unit, and to meet the demands of multisport racing or training.

    FORM

    Scalini has an external fork steerer. Instead of the traditional rounded head tube, an external head tube allows for the frame leading edge to be far more streamlined. Resulting in a smaller frontal area, a more streamlined profile, and ultimately decreased Form Drag on the leading edge. The stem is integrated into the top tube, further reducing the frontal area Form drag. The handlebar clamp is further streamlined, to reduce exposed area.

    GEOMETRY

    The longer wheelbase in conjunction with the super low stack height and steeper seat tube means the Scalini TT geometry places the rider in a more aerodynamic position, improving the combined aerodynamic efficiency of the bike and rider as a unit.

    INCLUDED HYDRATION AND STORAGE SOLUTIONS

    The Scalini features an integrated on-board Vision Metron hydration system and allocation for a Speedkit storage bag behind the seatmast. The Metron system features an articulated, collapsible straw attachment that enables the rider to easily take a drink at various angles, improving accessibility and convenience. *not available on the Frameset option.

    INTEGRATED AERO DIRECT MOUNT BRAKES

    The front brake caliper is tucked behind the fork, to reduce the interference drag the component will typically generate, mounted on the front. Trailing edge integration The rear brake caliper is tucked under the bottom bracket, to reduce the interference drag the component will typically generate, mounted on the seat stays. Trailing edge integration.
