High-end road race bikes from Bottecchia

Sponsored post: plus the carbon Zoncolan mountain bike

Bottecchia has more than 70 bike models in its 2015 range, and talked BikeRadar through three of the highlights at Eurobike 2014.


The big news for 2015 is the Emme3Gara, a professional carbon disc-equipped race bike that’s set to cost between €5,000 and 10,000.

There’s also the T1 Tourmalet, an aerodynamic frame that’s new for 2015, to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the first Italian Tour de France winner, and the Zoncolan carbon mountain bike, with Shimano XTR and a RockShox RS1 fork. See all three in the video below:
