Tackling cobbles or the group ride.

Biketopia in Knoxville, TN has done well with the Infinito since its launch in 2010 and with the excellent race coverage of Vacansoleil during the spring classics, they're ready again for another great selling season. And a Sempre tucked in on the end for good measure.

Frame strength comes from Nano-tech construction and K-VID utilization adds to the durability and wheel adhesion of the Infinito when the road surface becomes ugly.

Let's not forget the Impulso (below photo) which was a personal choice of Stijn Devolder during Roubaix. Some guys have a soft heart for a firm, fast frame.

This frame shares the geometry of the Infinito only a slightly shorter head tube yet it's taller than the Sempre head tube. There is also ample tire clearance for those looking for a supple ride over chip seal roads or when the pavement ends.

The Impulso's oversized 35mm seat tube and Triple Hydroformed frame serves up the right balance of 'hip steering', up front-communicative steering and front end strength at the head tube. Thats something you need when pounding the cobbled roads during the Spring Classics.
