For its 12th issue, Tour Magazine tested eight road bikes with frames under 800 Gram, among them bikes of the well known “big players” like Cannondale and Trek, but also the Pasculli Altissimo.
“David against Goliath”? Maybe a kind of, but like in the story, the Altissimo quite strong.
Assembled with the Sram Red 22 group set, Ax-Lightness parts, the Lightweight Meilenstein C wheel set, the complete bike weighed 5,5 kg and so it was rated a 1.5, the second best mark of the whole test.
Especially, the tour testers emphasized “the precise handling and the very smooth handling” of the Altissimo.
