AQUILA ROSSA TEAM e GARDENA TEAM are the official team bikes, and their new design will be unveil soon.


Designed to give the best on competition fields, AQUILA ROSSA is produced with Monolith technology, thanks to which the 930 gram carbon frame takes structure and shape entirely from a single mold in total absence of junction points, creating a real monocoque. Thanks to the homogeneity of the distribution of the carbon fibers, the weight, the rigidity and the distribution of vibrations throughout the structure benefit from this, taking performance to the highest levels. Faster, more stable and more responsive with unparalleled comfort in terms of vibrations, thanks also to the racing Boost geometries and the extremely compact 435 mm undercarriage.


GARDENA with the MONOLITH Superlight frame is the fastest and most precise full suspension developed by the Red Lab ever. Designed to give incredible performance even on the toughest routes, the full carbon MONOLITH monocoque frame is made in total absence of junction points with a 12mm thru-axle for 148 of wheelbase that keeps the rear rigid both in the hardest stretches and in rhythm variations. more demanding.

As for the bikers, the Elite Franz Hofer and Giuseppe Panariello, the Junior Davide Pulizzi, the Under 23 Riccardo Servadei and Gianantonio Mazzola have been reconfirmed. Among the new entries, however, there will be, among the Under 23 Tobias Oberhammer, a promising young Trentino with experience in cross country, the Elban Daniele Feola, winner of the Tuscan MTB circuits, and the promising Brescia Andrea Piantoni from Team Manuel Bike. And now we come to the hottest part of the new purchases, among the Elite will wear the colors of the Bottecchia Factory Team also Domenico Valerio, coming from Ktm Protek Elettrosystem, a name already known among the fat wheels and already part of the tour of the Italian National Marathon. Another very interesting name is that of the Piedmontese Francesco Bonetto, coming from Ktm Brenta Brakes with experience in cross country, who decided from this 2022 to dedicate himself to long distance races, which in the previous year he did sporadically but with good results. Finally Marco Pini who will pass from Master to the ranks of the Elite, willing to gain experience to make a good impression in the future in this category.


The tires will be supplied by Mitas, the puncture-proof ones by SoulCiccia, the wheels by the historical partner such as Miche, the saddles will be supplied by Selle San Marco, the time trial shoes and the helmets and glasses by the Swedish company Poc leader in the sector. As far as clothing is concerned, the ten-year relationship with Pissei is increasingly consolidated, while for underwear it will be supplied by Brynje, a Norwegian company also leader in the sector. And again KloWer products will be used for cleaning and lubrication. Since 2022, the support of the Alaracing company directed by Fausto Duranti has been fundamental, which has allowed us to bring prestigious brands to the team that will support us in the long season.
