The SCALATORE is equipped with carbon fibre drop handlebars that absorb vibrations and whose shape allows for a variety of grips. Depending on whether you’re climbing up a hill or tackling a steep descent, you have perfect control. The SLAVIA has handlebars about the weight of the handrail, which allows only one stiff grip that soon becomes exhausting. The handlebars also only have one grip possibility that leaves the rider in sprinting position. The bike was originally designed to race on velodrome tracks, which explains the absence of brakes.
