The Bossi Strada SS is the first of its kind. A thoroughbred road bike featuring fully integrated cable routing, aero profiles, 3D cast junctions and linished welds - a package aimed at bringing the fight to carbon without sacrificing ride quality or durability.
Lighter, less flex, and more aero shaping. It’s all possible thanks to titanium casting. The Strada SS brings together multiple technologies in a single package for the first time; cast manufacturing, fully internal cable routing, and Kamm-aero profile tubes. We’ve invested in all the tooling so we can own and control the process. You won't find generic alternatives, or any alternatives for that matter. For now, the Strada SS is the only frame we’re aware of that blends those elements together.
The down tube, top tube, and seat tube are all hydroformed and double-butted to reduce the wall thickness while maintaining durability. The end result is the same strength and resilience as our round-tubed frames with lighter weight. Aesthetically, it separates the Strada SS from other titanium frames too. There's not a round tube to be found in the main triangle of the bike. The end result of that new production process is a lighter, more aero frame with reduced flex. It might sound cliché to claim more of all the good things, and less of the bad but that's what we've found with the Strada SS.
Aerodynamic claims have become very cycling marketing du-jour recently so we’ll say up-front: the Strada is more aero than a traditional round-tubed Ti frame, but not aero obsessed. We've adopted proven aerodynamic forms, and amalgamated them with our rider-focussed philosophy that prioritises handling, character and ride quality. Cast junctions allow seamless connection to aero-optimised profiles, similar to high performance bikes which have incorporated Kamm forms for years.
The Strada SS then represents a progressive step for titanium's ability to slice the wind more efficiently. From a broader industry perspective; no needles have moved and envelopes remain un-pushed in the field of aerodynamics.
We've brought the T47 bottom bracket to the Strada SS. It meets market expectation and opens the door to more, and emerging, crankset options. The move to T47 is about giving our customers what they want, and the feedback to date is that people want threads. That combined with flat mount disc brakes, integrated cabling, thru axles, and clearance for 30c tyres means the Strada SS is as future-proof as they come
We'll be adding multiple paint and finishing options for those wanting some extra personalisation. As every job is different quotes will be provided after consultation.
Option 1: As seen on this page. A single main colour on the front 2/3s of the frame and fully covering the fork. banded with a second highlight colour.
Option 2: Painted to the chainstays. Get that classic metal frame aesthetic with paint almost all the way back, leaving some shiny exposed titanium on the chainstays to remind people you're rolling on Ti.
Option 3: The fade. Blend two colours into each other in either patten above
