Moda Rubato Triple Butted Aluminium Road Bike


Since its introduction to the range the Rubato has received rave reviews for its performance “light and rangy, classic road racing configuration” its handling “massively flickable without being twitchy” and at this price point its choice of wheels “stiff and light, the American Classic wheels are head and shoulders above other wheels on sub £1000 bikes”

Expect no less from the 2013 version, the only thing we’ve changed is the paint!

Moda LDA Aluminium

Load Dispersing Aluminium

We apply the same thought process to our aluminium frames as we do our carbon ones. Points of high load and increased stress not only receive high quality welds and gusseting if needed but but also a thicker tube profile.
With these areas re-enforced we can remove unnecessary weight elsewhere on the frame to provide a lightweight responsive base for our aluminium bikes.
