After six years with his previous bike polo frameset Luca had decided that it was time for a change. A challenging process ensued as with his old frameset he had won everything there is to offer within the sport of Bike Polo including multiple titles/MVP awards at the World, European and French Championships.
After carefully reviewing his playing style in comparison to his previous frame geometry we decided to create a frame that would be able to turn aggressively yet with stability as he swerves his way around the court. These ideas would be complimented by the fact the frame would be updated with some newer modernised standards such as a tapered steerer, 15mm thru-axle and a T47 bottom bracket. The result is a lightweight frameset that is stronger and faster than anything Luca has ever ridden before.
