Created by 2007 Giro d’Italia winner Danilo Di Luca, the Di Luca range of Italian super-bikes launch in the UK
Di Luca is a high-end bicycle brand who’s frame-sets are designed, engineered and hand finished in Italy and bespoke built in Britain. They are the concept and architecture of Danilo Di Luca, the winner of the 2007 Giro d’Italia.
The current bikes are the result of five years of work perfecting a genuine ‘grand tour’ bike that took all of the best features of factory machines Danilo rode while racing, developed into two ‘Killer’ cycles, for discerning riders who may never ride in the pro-peloton, but want the ultimate riding experience with the knowledge virtually nothing will propel them faster.
The Killer Aero is built for pure outright speed, it’s also lightweight, but with unrivalled comfort for a wind-slicing, high modulus design. The Killer Aero geometry is unique in that it’s not just an extremely fast and responsive bike, but extremely comfortable, being ideal for big days in the saddle. Normally, this could not be said for a full-on aero bike, but there’s some clever design that makes this possible.
Being aero is one thing, however as our bikes are exclusively built from aerospace quality Uni-directional (UD) T800 Toray carbon fibre and specially chosen polymer resins, this makes them some of the toughest, lightest and compliant frame-sets in the world, weighing in at just 950g, because we built them with thinner carbon as smooth on the inside as the outside. This high modulus UD lay-up ensures that we can retain incredible torsional rigidity, but maintain vertical compliance.
The only way to experience the difference between this Italian machine and other mass production marques is to throw you leg over the crossbar and take it for a spin. It’s immediately obvious you’re on something very special. The secret’s in the geometry, as we’ve said, with Danilo having created a bike that responds immediately to every pedal stroke, accelerating to an unprecedented speed.
Di Luca bikes are only available as fully built machines to the very highest specification, ready for sale by selected exclusive independent bike dealers. A bespoke service if offered for wheels, cockpit and group-sets, configured online here ready to be delivered to your chosen dealer within a few days from ordering (subject to inventory).
To compliment these outstanding performance bicycles there is a limited ‘Killer Collection’ range of branded clothing for racing and club riding. In addition, when purchasing a Limited Edition Di Luca Rosa, Killer Aero you’ll be able to participate for free in a unique and very special one-day training experience personally with Danilo in either the UK or Italy on selected dates.
