Deda Elementi’s wheel lineup, shown partially in the background because I forgot to snap close-up pics, has been revamped with a complete new rim profile that’s wider and more aero. All carbon versions are tubular for now, maybe clinchers next year, but there is one pair of alloy clincher wheels. The carbon models are called SL30/45/88 (number refers to depth), and all are 25mm wide laced with straight pull spokes. Ceramic bearings all around, claimed weights are 1290g, 1390g and 1670g. Campy and Shimano/SRAM freehubs available.
In the foreground is the new Superleggera RS, which takes their already high end Superleggera bar and stem and make them even more bad add. The handlebar gets a revised carbon fiber to come in at just 180g for the 42cm (44/46 also available, measured to outside of bar). Reach is 75mm, drop is 130mm. The stem is 7050 aluminum with a Duracer hard ceramic coating that matches the bar’s matte finish and polished graphics. Average weight is 100g, sizes from 90mm to 130mm in 10mm increments.
Check out the stem, and a lot more, below…
The Superleggera RS uses their RHM (Rapid Hand Movement) that transitions from a flattened, oval-ish top section that arcs widely into the hoods.
This prototype bar/stem combo didn’t come with any info other than to say it’s a concept, but it uses hidden cable/wire runs and a bolt-on computer mount.
Next down the line are the new SuperZero alloy parts, giving you a top level option that’s not carbon. It’s made of 7050 alloy and weighs in at 305g (42cm).
It, too, uses the RHM shaping and is available in 40/42/44/46 widths. 75mm reach, 130mm drop.
Below SuperZero is the Zero2, which gets a new two-piece stem faceplate.
The Zero1 is an all-new group, bringing Deda’s lineup to a new price point by going with 6061 alloy for the entire collection.
It dispenses with the flattened tops, but keeps the wide RHM arc into the hoods. Same reach and drop as the others, weight is 304g (42cm) with widths from 38 to 46 in 2cm increments.
The seatpost works with their Di2 internal battery holster and weighs in at 295g (for the 31.6, a 27.2 is also available). It’s 350mm long and has a 20mm setback. The 3D-forged stem gets blackened chromoly bolts, a nice touch for a budget group, and weighs in at 145g (110mm). Sizes offered are 70 through 130 mm, all with a -18º drop to put it level on most bikes. All parts come in black-on-black matte finish or black anodized with white/red graphics.
Lastly, there’s a new carbon bottle cage called Gabba. Weight and price TBA, but plenty of color options should help you match it to the rest of your bike.
