Monocoque frame highest modulus carbon fibre IM 600
Lightness and stiffness are the elements of the Super Scuro Racing Competition.
Starting from the typology of the raw carbon fiber IM600, manufactured by the top international supplier TOHO. The carbon fiber is rated 30T highest modulus. The main features are; tensile strength of 5790 MPa, a particularly high value for 30T, an high ratio of elasticity of 285 GPa which qualifies as an highest modulus rating, high elongation resistance of 2% and a density of only 1,8g/cm.
The frame building process is called Nano Technology. N.T. is the Dedacciai advanced manufacturing process based upon a special epoxy resin capable to fill the microscopic spaces between fibers and molecularly bonding the fibers to each other. The result is far superior structural quality for the composite fiber and resin Prepreg than ordinary carbon fiber composites, and gives less weight with higher stiffness torsional rigidity and performance life.
The stress full areas of the frame, such as bottom bracket, head tube and seat cluster are engineered with A.W.P technology. Anti wrinkle Process is the method with which the internal carbon wall is moulded especially at the principals joints, interposing a silicone element between the air element and internal frame wall.
The silicone element, stronger than a common airbag eliminates geometrical irregularities inside the frame, such as wrinkles and depressions. The abnormalities might concentrate stress forces and should become prime points for structural cracks.
Super Scuro RC features are stability and comfortable handling performance. The tapered head tube of 1 1/8" on the top and 1 1/2" on the bottom bearings allow balance on every kind of pavements and a superior driving excellence.
In the engineering process special attention has been focused on the shape of the frame tubes with an aerofoil profile similar to the airplane wings. In order to contribute to decrease the air penetration all the brake and gear shifting cables are internal routing the monocoque frame through special hidden cable stops. They ensure the frame an unique appearance and at the same time a saving weight.
Super Scuro RC is fully compatible with mechanical and electronic shifting systems (Shimano DI2, Ultegra and Campagnolo EPS, Athena), by running the cables inside the down tube and in the chain stays, via an internal bottom bracket passage. The refined attention to detail could be seen in the routing of the rear derailleur wire through the alloy rear dropout. The frame is also compatible with cable-operated shifting systems. That double compatibility is obtained by replacing small parts through the "cable stopper" system described above.
Every Super Scuro RC element offers the best torsional rigidity at 990g on the painted M version. The monocoque carbon fiber painted fork of 350g completes the glorious Super Scuro RC. The aero seat post weighs only 190g.
