The new Valcava Alpha road frame is the crown jewel of the WR Compositi production. An extremely lightweight carbon fiber road frame that is high-performance with excellent torsional stiffness, and entire made-to-measure. It is one of the most ambitious projects embarked upon by WR Compositi; it’s design exudes 25 years of research and development within the composite fiber industry.
The Valcava Alpha road frame is designed and manufactured to meet the needs of the individual cyclist: frame geometry, carbon fiber weave, tube thickness, head-tube angle, stiffness, rider weight, color and finish of the frame; the list of custom details goes on. Each made-to-measure carbon fiber frame-set is handcrafted with advanced composites engineering using a thermoset bonded tube construction.
The average weight of an Alpha frame is under 720g, a result obtained thanks to the careful use of high modulus T1000 carbon fiber and the precise construction method developed and constructed entirely in Italy.
The characteristics of the Alpha frame make it particularly suitable for intensive and/or professional use. Measurements, geometry and handling ideals are all-customisable and can be adapted based on needs and use of each individual cyclist.
