Ben Serotta’s vision for ‘Project Duetti’ was to develop a forward-thinking machine optimized for 90% of the riding we do today, making it your go-to cycling companion. The top considerations were proportioned fit, versatility without compromise and incorporating a future-proof assembly that combines great performance, dependability, and value.
A great bike fit is the result of both positioning the cyclist on the bike and positioning a well-proportioned bike underneath. Combined, the stage is set for a great day in the saddle with efficiency, endurance, comfort and confidence-inspiring handling. That’s why the Duetti S1 is produced in eleven distinct sizes (twice as many as most companies), offering every rider a true fit experience.
This commitment to fit is what led Ben to select an exotic aluminum alloy for the main frame, rather than carbon, as it facilitates the greatest flexibility in manufacturing. Determined to create a bicycle that is light, responsive, comfortably smooth, reliably durable and a ride experience that rivals the best of any material, we had to go global.
The rare 6069 alloy we use has very limited exclusive availability. Vanadium is the key ingredient, significantly boosting durability. After welding and heat treatment, we added shot-peening, a process developed for military aircraft, further increasing lifespan by 300% or more. Not surprisingly, we’ve partnered with the most experienced fabricator to handle Duetti’s construction.
With no detail left unattended, Serotta’s international team of veteran American, German and Taiwanese engineers embarked on a tour de force effort, leveraging Ben’s “Colorado Concept” engineering principles, to ensure a sensational ride that warrants the Serotta signature.

NOTE : We exclusively use super premium, top tier tires with high thread count with a standard width of 25c that optimize your paved rides while handling pretty much any surface coupled with premium, light weight inner tubes. Due to changing availability, the brand and model will vary- Vredestein, Continental and Schwalbe.
Your final build DOES NOT include saddle or pedals, but you may add them to your order as you build your bike after you’ve selected your frame.
