THE DISC PEGORETTI
A new option available for the Round and Responsorium frames. Developed as a natural extension of the Pegoretti design language, the disc options maintain the clean lines and compelling ride characteristics for which we’re known, while introducing new dropouts and a disc-specific version of the Falz fork.
Words by Pietro Pietricola / Nov. 1 2021
In the past few years we’ve been asked pretty regularly about making a disc brake model. But adding a disc option isn’t something we wanted to rush. First, we had to wait for the braking systems to mature to a point where they could meet our safety and design standards. And then we had to think about how we might create a disc frame that still looked, felt and rode like a Pegoretti, and utilise the technology to best effect.
Built with the flat-mount standard, the disc brake Responsorium and Round frames feature newly-designed dropouts, a redesigned rear triangle, a mandatory English-standard bottom bracket to provide space to house the rear brake cable and a new version of the Falz fork featuring the same gently curving design as its rim-brake cousin. Like our rim brake frames, the disc options accept up to 28mm tyres.
We originally developed the rim brake Falz because there was nothing on the market that was either up to the task, or looked elegant enough to complement our frames. So when designing the disc-brake Falz, we were careful to carry over the same flowing design aesthetic, despite the fact that the blades are reinforced.
