Formigli Florentia 2017-08-01T11:29:03+00:00

AN Italian WORK OF ART

THE FLORENTIA

You could call the Florentia a woman-specific Formigli Classic, but you’d be selling it short. It is a custom racing bicycle but truly it is also Italian art at its highest perfection.

Most women’s specific bikes are made to a formula, as if all women were alike. The Florentia, like Renzo Formigli’s other models, is made-to-order, custom, each bicycle different from the last one and the next one. Each custom road bike is made to suit (to delight) its eventual rider.

Renzo builds the Florentia the way elite Italian framebuilders, a dwindling group of artisana, used to make frames.

Frame: High modulus carbon.  Proprietary Formigli tubes designed and manufactured in Florence.

Build Time: 60 business days from order confirmation

Frame Price from: $2700.00 USD

Deposit to start the build process: $500.00 USD

FRAME SPECIFICATIONS

Frame Material – Italian SL steel made by Columbus.

Steel Specs  – Niobium is a special steel with manganese,chrome, nickel, molybdenum and niobium. Columbus’s special chemical composition, the combined effect of strengthening for precipitation and reducing the alloy grain size are incredibly enhanced compared to standard steels.
Niobium proves more effective than Vanadium as an alloy-strengthening agent. After specific processes of progressive drawing and forming, NIOBIUM undergoes a special heat treatment that gives to the steel its final characteristics. It is a steel designed to provide superior mechanical characteristics and higher resistance to environmental effects than conventional carbon steels.The only serious choice for a competition or top-of-the-line frame, where lightweight and reliability are essential.
