After its hiatus, the Rock Racing company has been revived by its owner, Roberto Tronconi, in partnership with the R&D and production manager, Michael Ball. For 2012, the company will be offering a line up of road bikes with three models, and the top of the line model is the RX5Ri.
Different shapes are used by the tubes in the entire frame for maximum stiffness and ride adjustments. Features include Shimano PressFit 86 Bottom bracket, integrated seat mast, and asymmetric seat tube. Since it is handmade, the RX5Ri will be available not only in six stock sizes but also in custom sizes.
Handmade in Italy, the 2012 Rock Racing RX5Ri Road Bike is constructed with a Nomex honeycomb sandwiched with carbon. Aside from making this well thought out road bike incredibly strong, these materials decrease vibration to near zero, as well, as claimed by Rock Racing.
