British carbon frame bike brand, Dassi have just launched the DRC Limited II TT bike
British carbon frame bike brand, Dassi today adds a TT bike to its high-performance range. The new time trial machine is hand built and finished to order in low volumes, aerodynamically designed and fully customisable to its rider. The Dassi DRC Limited II TT bike hosts an array of bike adjustments including an extendable stem, providing a whole new level of fitment for the rider. The Dassi Elite Women’s Tri Team will be riding the new bike this season.

The new TT machine – designed and assembled in the UK – was two years in development. Stuart, Dassi’s founder and an aerospace engineer by background applied his years of aeronautical experience including Computational Fluid Dynamics – the measurement of airflow/low drag co-efficient – and finite element analysis to the design, providing an aerodynamically efficient bike to the market. The bike comes complete with an adjustable stem and double adjustment on the saddle. This means that you get the perfect fit – not an approximate fit.
The bikes are designed with both aesthetics and performance in mind. When buying the Dassi DRC Limited II TT bike, the rider receives a tailored fit, which means every rider gets a bike completely unique to them. Dassi builds its bikes with the customer at the centre of the experience enabling the customer to have control over the components, the paint and decal finishes. No other rider in the world will have the same bike and it’s completely tailored to give the best position, maximum comfort and handling on a race ready bike.
Dassi’s bikes offer supreme quality and unrivalled value, with the bikes being tailored to suit all styles and budgets. Dassi deals directly with the public, not through retailers or dealers, which means additional costs in the supply chain are removed and the benefits passed onto its customers.
Founder and designer, Stuart says: “Our bikes are designed with aerodynamics as a backdrop but with customer experience as our driver. Working on the Dassi DCR Limited II TT bike enabled me to combine two passions – science and a love of bikes. At Dassi we want to provide our customers with something completely unique to them, and we want to deliver an experience that a top pro is accustomed to. Dassi bikes aren’t just products you buy off a shelf, buying a Dassi invites you into a club.”
