Eddy Merckx, Francesco Moser, Gianni Motta and Moreno Argentin are some of the countless champions which rode Ugo De Rosa frames to epic victories. And it is no coincidence that, in the 1974 Giro d'Italia, roughly 80% of all riders of the peloton chose Mr. De Rosa frames. Widely considered "The Master" Ugo De Rosa manufactured masterpieces which strongly influenced the cycling industry, just as the De Rosa Professional
Our De Rosa SLX is one of the fine bicycles which left the De Rosa factory in the 1980s. Manufactured with Columbus SLX steel tubes - a very light and stiff tubing with inner reinforcements, butted sections and reinforced chain stays - the Professional really embodies the perfection and attention to detail of the Milanese frame builder.
This particular De Rosa has been refurbished and it received a silver paitjob with a metallic effect.
