Following it’s cult status of the original La Piovra, we developed ATK frameset for the 2018/19 season – making it stiffer, lighter and through adding a tapered headtube (and carbon fork) made it corner more quickly and with significantly more stability.
Made from 6061 alloy, with a 35.6 tear shaped down tube and hydroformed seat tube, this is a stiff, super-fast frame. Twinned with a tapered head tube and full carbon tapered fork, the built up bike holds the road brilliantly.
For transit reasons all complete bikes are shipped 85% assembled. We strongly advise to take it to your local bike shop where it can be fully assembled, checked, adjusted and prepared for your first ride.
