Guerciotti’s old world Italian cycling know-how plus cutting edge carbon fiber technology from industry leader Mitsubishi merge to become so much more than the sum of their parts in the Guerciotti Gemini Road Bike. Prepare to launch into orbit as the monocoque frameset – built from 12K weave, TR505 carbon fiber – provides a rock solid, featherweight platform that just begs to be ridden to its maximum potential. And no matter if you’re suiting up for the Wednesday night world championships, your favorite gran fondo, a road race, a crit, or a solo ride on your local stomping grounds, the Gemini is spec’d to the nines. No corners were cut regarding the component package as you’re treated to a complete Shimano Ultegra 11-speed mechanical groupset. Buttery smooth, incredibly reliable, and plenty light to boot, you’ll wonder how you got by with anything else before. The Fulcrum Racing Quattro aluminum wheels feature 35mm deep rims to cheat the wind plus provide a light, responsive ride. No Italian bike is complete without some parts from the spiritual home of cycling and the Gemini certainly comes through in spades. The cockpit and saddle are fully Italian through and through as there’s a Deda seatpost, stem, and bar tape, while Selle Italia ably handles saddle detail.
Lighter, stiffer and more durable than its predecessor, there is a lot to like about the R1B carbon-fibre outsole to maintain high levels of stiffness, vital for efficient power transfer. Two Boa dials help lock your feet in and do a very good job of it. Microadjustment is possible and it’s easy to get them off quickly thanks to a quickrelease function. At a claimed 227g for a size 42.5, they are relatively lightweight compared to similarly priced rivals. A neutral footbed also means that these should suit most, if not all, foot shapes. One thing to keep an eye out for is sizing. The size 42s we had on test were a little on the large side, so it would be a good idea to try before you buy to get the perfect fit that such a big spend deserves.
