Different from 'classic' skinny tire road bicycles, the Duetti is optimized for navigating the higher average speeds reached on pavement yet outfitted with 28C tires (up to 30C in some brands) with proper pressure you'll be more than adequately prepared for maintained dirt and gravel surfaces. Overall the design features steering that is a little more sensitive, a center of gravity that's a little lower, the bikes are a little lighter and typically your position would be a slightly longer and lower.
What's in a name? Duetti (pronounced Doo-et-ee) is plural for Duetto. Duetto (Italian for duet) represents two coming together to make a beautiful sound... or to me, a beautiful experience like the ride of a lifetime when you and your bike just become one. I chose the plural form of the word to reflect the many wonderful rides you’ll have together.
