The Rodano is Stelbel's endurance model. Combined with disc brakes and with increased tire clearance, the inherent comfort and stability are improved. Fantastic ride quality has always been the great strength of the Rodano. It is ideal for those who spend a lot of time in the saddle and love the ride feel that only steel can offer.
We believe that steel is still the best material when it comes to making truly special, tailored frames. The Rodano is an expression of that belief. It’s a road model designed to combine performance and comfort with a modern approach. Following this concept, this version was developed for flat mount disc brakes and thru axles. It is a model particularly appreciated for its lightness, precise cornering and stability, further enhanced with the adoption of disc brakes and thru axles.
The steel tubing used stays true to the Stelbel tradition but at the same time takes full advantage of the latest technological developments. The custom tubing, made in collaboration with Columbus using double and triple butted tubes, is naturally welded with the signature Stelbel TIG technique. Designed to meet and exceed the highest expectations of today’s rider and provide a level of performance and comfort that is second to none.
- The head tube accommodates external headsets to match disc forks from 1 “¼ to 1” ½. Depending on the project and the customer’s requests, it is possible to combine the frame with forks from Columbus Tubi, Enve, 3T and WR Compositi.
- The oval chain stay, which has a constant 30x16mm diameter, helps to increase the rigidity of the rear triangle, considerably reducing the loss of power transmission from rider to rear wheel.
- On request, the frame can be made to take mudguards, a rear rack and also cabling to run a dynamo hub. The adoption of disc brakes combined with a plethora of customization options make the Rodano Disc an extremely popular choice for ultra-distance, bikepacking and audaxing.
- As with all Stelbel frames, the Rodano is embellished with engravings on the head tube, bottom bracket and rear dropouts.
