Italian-made custom carbon specialists Sarto Bikes get aerodynamic with all-new Raso modern aero road bike. Created to bring aerodynamic speed to any road, for any size rider, the new Sarto Raso is said to be as fast as any race bike with all the comfort of an endurance road bike.
Sarto Raso custom Italian aero road bike
Sarto’s new aero Raso now tops their Italian custom carbon road bike lineup, leveraging new manufacturing tech to create seamless aerodynamics with custom-formed, truncated aero cross sections.
Explaining how the new Raso takes advantage of new machinery allowing for customization with more complex tube shaping, Sarto bikes founder Enrico Sarto described his excitement about the new project, “A core belief at Sarto is in the power of innovation and investment in new technologies. These new technologies, like our carbon fibre cutter and autoclave, allow us to accelerate our materials research and technical solutions, bolstering our in-house capabilities and continuing our proud tradition of making everything by hand in Italy.”
The new Sarto Raso is built one-at-a-time in Veneto, Italy to perfectly fit each rider from high-strength UD carbon fiber. The aero frame itself is built tube-to-tube with custom-shaped carbon tubing to allow for size and layup customization, with smooth transitions to deliver slippery aerodynamics from all wind angles.
The disc brake-only Raso frames specifically incorporate vibration-damping layups inside key tubing profiles, plus seatstay shaped to soak up bumps and an integrated clamp for the proprietary aero seatpost. And for more comfort, grip & control over any road surface, the Raso has tire clearance for up to 35mm rubber, bleeding it over into the aero all-road segment.
Up front the aero road bike with an hourglass headtube gets fully integrated cable routing through the headset into the frame. It also gets a new one-piece cockpit that adapts off-road gravel tech for improved comfort & ergonomics. The all-day comfort Raso’s bar features 10.75° of flare to widen its drops a full 5cm overall, on top of an already compact bend – 75mm reach & 125mm drop.
