Pantani frames are now available to buy in the UK via JE James Cycles.
They’ve been designed by Davide Boifava, former pro rider and joint founder of the Carrera Podium bike company.
Available in Skin (aluminium) or Corsair (carbon) versions, the frames come in black/yellow, black/blue or black/red and bear Marco Pantani’s signature on the top tube.
The £1,699 carbon monocoque frames are made using ‘Solid Carbon’ technology – a process which uses high-pressure to compact the carbon fibres, thus making the frame more resistant to high levels of axial and torsional loads. They come with an integrated seatpost and straight carbon fork.
The £899 7005 series T6 aluminium frames are designed for recreational and racing use and are built with a carbon fibre rear monostay which should take out the sting of the ride over long distances.
Triple-butted oversize tubing is used to increase stiffness, and the fork is made of K6 carbon fibre.
