Our Gran Fondo endurance chassis has seen a ground up redesign building on the success of our previous generations. We took the design right back to the drawing board where the goal for our design team was to build on our already impressive power transfer figures to make a stiffer more responsive bike under acceleration and hard cornering. We’ve reconfigure the bottom bracket shell design, beefed up the chainstays and added more torsional resistance to the downtube.
With the increases in the lower tray’s rigidity we’ve also looked at increasing compliance through the ultra-fine rear seat stays which are designed to allow controlled flex to cushion out road vibrations ensuring your comfort. The head tube is oversized and tapered to offer perfect handling control whilst our new compliance fork resists torsional twisting forces under hard steering yet allows for-and-aft movement to keep the front end smooth and controlled.
We’re riders here at Mekk so like you we know that the road isn’t always as smooth as we’d like so the new Poggio has been developed to be able to take up to a 28c tyre ensuring comfort, grip and better puncture resistance whatever the road surface.
