Torelli Cortona


The Toccata is a carbon frame with internal aluminum lugs that are tig-welded. This system, which is also used in frames using Deda's "Black Soul" and Columbus' "XLR8TR" system, gives the frame builder unprecedented freedom when building with carbon to give each frame exactly the geometry desired. Each frame size, as with our aluminum and steel frames, has its own optimal geometry.


Only high-strength, high-modulus carbon filaments developed first for the aerospace industry are used in our carbon tubes. These premium carbon fibers are mated to the epoxy resin with a technology that results in a very dense, thin, strong, light tube. We cannot write their names here, but the company producing our carbon tubes has proprietary technology that is available elsewhere under other brand names for much higher prices. Our carbon factory-direct buying will save you a huge amount of money. Our obsession with geometry and ride insures that the ride is Torelli quality.

I personally test rode the final prototype for three months before sending the shop our first purchase order.
