The SS26 is Tifosi’s endurance-focussed road bike and is designed for all-day comfort over everything else, with a healthy chunk of stack and generous clearances for wider tyres.
The bike is also one of the very first we’ve received that is equipped with Campagnolo’s new H11 disc brakes and boy-oh-boy is it a looker.

Tifosi SS26 first impressions
We think that the SS26 frameset kind of looks like a mix of BMC’s signature and aggressively dropped boxy seatstays out back, mixed with lines similar to the Genesis Datum up front.
The paint scheme will no doubt divide opinion, but we’re personally quite fond of it — it’s always refreshing to see a bike that isn’t painted in another drab tone of meh.
The bike uses thru-axles at both ends, flat mount brakes and a BB86 press fit bottom bracket. Despite its focus on all day riding, the bike has no provisions to fit mudguards.
The bike is built around a Campagnolo Potenza groupset. We test a lot of SRAM and Shimano equipped bikes here at BikeRadar, so it’s a real treat to see something different.
The finishing kit comes courtesy of Deda and the wheels are from Miche. The 55cm build as pictured weighs in at a reasonable 8.64kg and can be yours for £2,499.99.
