A COMPANY WITH AN EYE AT THE FUTURE Tommasini has been producing and selling racing bikes since the Second World War. The essence of Tommasini is steeped in history, experience and technical know-how. The continuous research into better ways of building racing bikes has put Tommasini at the forefront of the market. The entire Tommasini range is hand crafted by highly skilled technicians in the factory at Grosseto Tuscany. Since the introduction of carbon fibre as the base material Tommasini has with its continuous research and development produced a racing bike that not only is lightweight but gives a comfort ride that is unique. Since its origin the company policy has been one of quality, this is made possible by the use of premium materials combined with innovative technology. The attention to detail by our master craftsmen brings a PASSON and STYLE that is easily recognized by our customers. MADE IN ITALY Tommasini frames are something very unique in the world. Unique, because as the best artisan tradition knows, every frame created by hand, has the maximum attention given to minute detail. The materials used in the whole production line are of the best quality. Perfection comes about because of intense research in every detail, from the priming of the tube to the quality control of the frame after painting. Titanium frames are welded together by TIG welding. This is done separately from the rest of the production line in a sterile environment. This ensures that there is no contamination of material and in so doing guarantees the quality of the titanium after production. The way the Tommasini logo is created delicately in the micro-fusion lug casts on all frames, not only personalizes the frame but goes to the very essence of Tommasini. This is true whether it is a brass-brazed frame, titanium or the new generation carbon fibre VLC2.

VLC3 TOMMASINI ITALIAN PRODUCTION CUSTOM TUBING VLC3 is the latest evolution of the Velocista frame, built with custom tubes designed by Tommasini, VLC3 has the target to create a carbon frame for who has to ride it taking care of his own body measurements, and especially in respect of his own way of riding. Therefore, VLC3 is a carbon frame perfectly CUSTOM BUILT for the customer! VLC3 looks like a monocoque frame, but it is not. VLC3 is created with exclusively shaped carbon tubes designed by Tommasini. Many are the news introduced on VLC3 for the 2012-2013 season: • classic seat tube, but also ISP on demand; • the 3 cables (rear brake, rear and front derailleur) have an internal routing on down and top tube; • press-fit carbon fiber bottom bracket; • carbon fiber rear dropouts; • the wishbone has an engraved T logo above the brake mount and shaped areas to reduce weight; • the monobox perfectly copy the bottom bracket to confer more stiffness. All the tubes are lighter to form a frame of only 960gr when unpainted. A true record for a wrapped frame! The hidden set is still 1 1/8” - 1 1/2”, consequently the matching fork is the FKTOS 1 1/2”. VLC3 with all these prerogatives stands an even more modern and compelling look, but firstly it grants the stability and rigidity needed for an over-the- top level machine! The work of art is completed by a renewed 43 design developed to enlighten all technical details of the VLC3 also conferring it a slender and aerodynamic style. Design 43 allow the customer to personalize the frame by choosing his own color combination. VLC the best racing frame you have ever dreamed!

X-FIRE (STAINLESS STEEL) A new, fascinating, challenge! There is nothing else better than steel, in comfort, ride, resistance, elegance!!! Maybe steel is too heavy?!? Here is the new challenge: X-FIRE, STAINLESS steel! More light, more stiff, more performing, very strong, no problems of corrosion or rust, so we have joined all prerogatives in the way we can satisfy any of our fans’ need! The ride is exceptional, this bike gives more comfort than most others, and it’s still very rigid. It is as light as any modern bike, but the ride is a way more comfortable and you will go faster because you will conserve energy for your pedaling more than consume it in coping with an aching back and shoulders. Furthermore, the challenge has been launched with the style of ever of Tommasini, and therefore not classic oversize tubings but… exclusively custom shaped; not few standard sizes but… custom geometry! Polished or satin finishing to improve the look of stainless steel, embellished with a little colour in Vintage style to make it appetizing to the most sophisticated tastes. How about prices? The lower of the market! How is it possible? We believe in what we do, we are sure to offer something exclusive, beautiful, elegant, modern, performing, original, completely customisable and… 100% ITALIAN!!!!

FIRE The latest evolution of the FIRE frame we re-introduce it with satisfaction after its great success, has now the new integrated steel a-head head set. The frame has been realized with the HT THERMACROM CUSTOM SPIRIT tubing. The special section of the down tube has been studied, enlarging it to 38mm., to prevent troubles deriving from the use of a extremely lightweight and thin tubing. The tubing shape choice applied on Spirit tubing derives from the technical need to preserve stiffness eliminating negative road vibrations reducing the risk of cracks of lightweight tubings. The frame is tig welded with an exception only: the personalized seat lug. This along with the special bottom bracket shell, the original rear dropouts and the “bell shape” steat stays make the rear triangle properly stiff. The frame is built according to an exclusive geometry designed by Irio Tommasini. It is completely chromed, or as a second choice, all “cataforesi” treated, good for extremely thin tubings because it deeply protect them from rust. Maximum attention to detail: an example are the STI bosses (with adjusting screws included) brazed onto the head tube and the engraved enamelled head tube metal badge. Personalized carbon fiber forks available. The 55 cm frame (painted) weight approx. 1.550 kg (3.417 lbs).
