Performance for the smaller rider!
Project 559 is dedicated to the spirit that lives in the 25% of our population that is smaller, yet equally determined, equally capable while being broadly underserved.
It’s pretty simple. Every cyclist can ride faster, farther and longer with greater confidence on a bike that fits- the cyclist is in an optimized position over the cranks, with weight distributed correctly over the wheels. For most cyclists, this can be accomplished with 700C wheels (the traditional standard size wheel on road bikes), but for cyclists who require a shorter cockpit, the optimal riding position is usually compromised in order to minimize overlap between the extended foot and front tire. The result, as you should expect, is a compromised cycling experience at best.
We’ve have developed our own proprietary disc compatible front fork and HED wheels to develop a wheelset that are a full 30MM shorter in radius than a traditional size wheel (ISO 559 is twice the difference a 650C makes) so that we can place your body in optimal position for power, comfort and control.
We promise, there is no compromise in performance, only gain.
Project 559 option is currently available in the aModoMio. If your budget is more in line with the Duetti, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate.
