Van Dessel gives the Rivet road bike the latest in carbon fiber frame construction, the tube-to-tube wrapping, which allows the Rivet to distribute excellent power transfer and extreme comfort when riding. The new carbon wrapping construction resulted in a tighter frame that Van Dessel believes to be its most dialed-in frame ever.
The Rivet has a tapered 1.5″ headtube and is BB30 compatible. Available in 7 sizes, it has 31.6mm seat post with a 34.0 front derailleur clamp. The Rivet has many build options that makes it flexible. Although it is better used for racing, the Rivet harvests enough comfort to endure longer rides, too.
Pricing for the frameset—which includes frame, fork and headset—is $1999. For the frameset, with FSA K-Force Lite Ceramic BB30 crankset, the price is $2699.
