Unlike other brands that every year offer bicycles with an increasingly reduced use destination, Cinelli developed Superstar with a meticulous attention to how the intrinsic qualities of carbon fiber and the production processes could be used to create a tremendous edition contemporary of the legendary Italian "Grand Tour" quality in the saddle: an intelligent balance of lightness, perfect maneuverability on any surface and comfort over long distances.
So Superstar, not only does it adhere to the traditional Italian racing geometry (72.5 ° head tube and 415 mm rear low), but it is also characterized by:
The shapes of the frame, which allow great precision in the drafting of the different carbon layers in the process production (it is interesting, for example, to notice how the tangent lines that join the horizontal and the oblique to the head tube allow the fiber to develop in its entire length, thus offering the best possible weight-stiffness ratio).
The horizontal tubewith the innovative cusp, which works by compensating the typical deformations of the steering tube when the frame is subject to sudden vertical or horizontal forces due to potholes or to the heavily damaged road surface. The controlled deformation keeps the head tube 8% more parallel to the original shape, thus allowing better control and greater maneuverability in harsh and rough conditions.
The use of polyurethane molds both external and - more unique than rare - internal, during the hardening process, to obtain the greatest compression of the fibers with the least use of resin, thus ensuring greater durability and reliability over time of the loom .
