Description

Details

The Tifosi Auriga is the product of three generations of development. The result: an all-round race bike that combines race pedigree and sprint capabilities with the comfort to ride all day.

Only marginally heavier than the ground-breaking Tifosi Mons, make no mistake: this is a quick bike! But it's certainly not the preserve of sprinters and time trialists.

Typical of Tifosi's pragmatic approach to design, the Auriga was designed to offer comfort for long rides and rough road surfaces too. The combined lightness, responsiveness and comfort make for a brilliantly balanced ride.

And if it's good enough to be ridden to multiple podiums by the Brother UK-Tifosi women's team during the 2019 season, it's good enough for us!

So, what's the Tifosi Auriga's secret?

The carbon fibre frame was create using 'Computational Fluid Dynamics' and a 'truncated foil' design, meaning that it's about as aerodynamic as it possibly could be - importantly both in wind tunnels and real life situations.

The rear stays have been redesigned with the rear brake mounting moved to the seat stay to maximise braking power. This limits any possible brake rubbing on the back wheel and avoids road dirt getting into the caliper - meaning longer life for your brakes, optimum efficiency and space for tyres up to 25mm.

Note: this Tifosi Auriga Disc package is exclusive to VeloVixen - certain components have been upgraded to suit female riders better. See 'Tech Spec' for more detail.

Who's Behind It?

It took us 7 years within the women's cycling world before we chose our first bike brand. That says a lot about Tifosi.

What we love about British brand Tifosi is their exceptional blend of passion for cycling, knowing what is truly important in a bike, and packaging it all up at prices that represent real bang for your buck.

Plus, they still have that niche kudos that will intrigue your fellow riders as they quitely covet your steed!

Formed in 2000, the Tifosi team wanted to create a bike range that would withstand everything that British cycling conditions could throw at them. And they planned to do that using the best European components whilst keeping prices really competitive.

Their reputation quickly bloomed thanks to great reviews and a fantastic reception from those in-the-know.

Over the years, Tifosi's elite teams have collected dozens of podiums on their hardware, illustrating their quality against the best.

]In 2019, their commitment to women's cycling hit new heights as they launched (perhaps ironically?!) Brother UK - Tifosi powered by OnForm, blending youth and experienced riders.

Once again, their success has helped prove the quality of Tifosi bikes, and with VeloVixen on board we're expecting to see plenty more women choosing Tifosi over more 'household' names...
