The RAN frame has been developed and engineered in order to astonish the most demanding athlete.
IThe R&D department has supported the RAN production with the best building knowledge available with the best partner. From the carbon fiber to the moulding production, from the design to the lightest paints; these elements have contributed to the new generation of the Dedacciai Strada frames.
All carbon tube diameters and dimensions have been reduced without weakening the structure of the monocoque. Specifically the seat tube has been reduced to 27,2 mm from the currently fashionable diameter of 31,6 mm. The rear stay has been designed to offer a damping element on every kind of pavement with 51Â° inclined seat stays relative to the ground. That inclination creates an off-set of 6 cm between seat stays and seat tube. The advantage of the rear moulding reduces the use of raw material hence the weight of the complete frame.
The engineering process has focused particular attention to the stressed sections: bottom bracket, head tube and seat tube, in order to maintain high stiffness ratio and maintain parallel alignment of the wheel axes during the pedal stroke.
The frame building process is called Nano Technology. The Dedacciai manufacturing technology is based upon a special epoxy resin which is able to fill the microscopic spaces between carbon fibers and the molecules in order to bond the fibers to each other with a longer life for the frame. That process allows production of a fiber and resin Prepreg composite which has better qualities compared to ordinary Prepreg. Less carbon fibers, reducing total frame weight, and high torsion ratio are the main features of Nano Technology.
