Eddy Merckx, Francesco Moser, Gianni Motta and Moreno Argentin are some of the countless champions which rode Ugo De Rosa frames to epic victories. And it is no coincidence that, in the 1974 Giro d'Italia, roughly 80% of all riders of the peloton chose De Rosa frames. Widely considered "The Master" Ugo De Rosa manufactured masterpieces which strongly influenced the cycling industry.
The Professional SLX was one of the best bicycles which left the De Rosa factory in the 1980s. Manufactured with Columbus SLX steel tubes, a very light and stiff tubing with inner reinforcements, butted sections and reinforced chain stays, the Professional SLX really embodies the perfection and attention to details of the Milanese frame builder. In the late 1980s and early 1990s that model received a facelift which included an internally routed rear braking cable.
The very core of this De Rosa is made of Columbus SLX steel tubes - a very light and stiff tubing with helical inner reinforcements, butted sections and reinforced chain stays - A bike which really embodies the perfection and attention to detail of the Milanese frame builder.
This particular De Rosa is in good original condition and is fitted with a complete Campagnolo groupset groupset with deep dish Vento wheels. Thoroughly serviced by our mechanics, this bike is ready to be ridden. Whether stylish commuting or just for fun weekend rides, this De Rosa SLX is undoubtedly a good choice for all demanding riders.
