Check out the first Scapin Ivor that has been brought to North America, currently being tested by Paved Magazine.
This is Scapin's range-topping fully custom carbon bike, produced by hand in Italy and available in custom geometries in 60 days.
FYI, MSRP is $4,925 for the frameset and there is no upcharge for custom.
Scapin is all about mating rigidity with comfort and I think this platform best exemplifies that philosophy.
Build is as follows:
- Super Record Groupset
- Xentis Squad 5.8 Silver Line tubular wheels with ceramic hubs and FMD Comp CX tires
- FSA CSI-99 Nano stem with K-Force Light compact bars
Weight was right around 14 lbs without pedals.
Not a true WW but at 1100 grams for a super-comfortable race frameset with ISP, it ain't bad either...
Here are the technnical highlights for you fellow nerds, and feel free to ask questions:
- Ivor: TT Matrix monocoque pieces built by hand / choice of 5 colors / Lifetime warranty / Mechanical or Electric cable routing / PFBB86 / Tapered Headtube / Carbon dropouts front and rear / S-Way anodized seat clamp and matching FD tab / Asymmetric design / CFS "Comfort Flex Stays"
- Squad 5.8's: Hand-built in Austria / Patented brake surface / Anti-rattle valve sleeve / Embedded computer magnet / Active Tubulator aerodynamics / Category-leading weights / Choice of matte or glossy Standard Line 12K weave or matte Silver Line UD finish
