BIKE OF THE WEEK: T-RED REA URANO

Steel done a new way

The Rea Urano is a new bike designed and developed by Romolo Stanco and TOOT Engineering. T-Red is a high-end Italian-made road bike company. The bikes are as uniquely designed as they are named.

Contemporary steel: two words that enclose this new project, designed for climbers. Yes, a steel bike. Forget the classic tubes or chromed steel, here we are talking about an alloy conceived and designed specifically for these bikes, an alloy in which the steel is micro-alloyed with Niobium, so as to significantly improve the mechanical characteristics of the material.

 

Uranus is the personification of Heaven, that sky that every cyclist passionate about climbs looks at when he gets on his bike, aiming to reach it in his exits and touch it with a finger, that sky that becomes ever closer.
