Elia Viviani's De Rosa SK Pininfarina – Gallery

European road race champion Elia Viviani is not only debuting his new Cofidis colours but also a new team bike, trading his Specialized Venge, for a De Rosa SK Pininfarina. Painted in the colours of the European champion, we expect to see Viviani mixing it up on all of the flat stages of the upcoming Tour Down Under, jockeying for position with the likes of Caleb Ewan and André Greipel.

Tipping our scales at 7.92kg, Viviani’s SK Pininfarina is shod with a full 2x12 Campy Super Record EPS V4 Disc groupset, complete with an SRM power meter at the cranks. The brunt of the stopping duties are taken care of by the 160mm rotor on the front wheel, while a smaller and lighter 140mm disc is used at the rear.

Given that Viviani is known for his top-end speed, it’s no surprise to see him pushing 53/39 chainrings and an 11-29T cassette. The Italian's rolling stock is provided by Campy’s sister brand Fulcrum, and his Speed 55T hoops see a carbon hub shell in the front and an aluminium version at the back. The Fulcrum rims are finished in 25c Michelin Pro Competition tubular tyres.

With a new team and new component sponsors, Viviani has swapped from Specialized’s Body Geometry touchpoints, to those provided by Vision and Selle Italia. Viviani's new Selle Italia SLR is noticeably shorter and broader than the Specialized Toupe he was sitting on last season. The cockpit comes in the form of Vision's, one-piece Merton 5D ARC bar and stem combo, with a stem length of 120mm and a 420mm bar width.
