Roundtail Delia Hybrid Commuter Road Bike

The RoundTail design removes the standard seat stay, chain stay and seat tube of the typical diamond-shaped bike design. Instead, two rings support the weight of the rider. This revolutionary new design creates a vertically compliant, laterally stiff ride with numerous benefits.

Frame: 6061 Double Butted Aluminum
Fork: Carbon with alloy steerer
Drivetrain: Shimano Deore 27 Speed
Brakeset: Shimano BR-M375 Mechanical disc
Wheelset: Alex DA-22 Rims, Novatec Hubs
Cockpit: Uno Handlebar, Uno Stem, Uno Seatpost

For more than 4,000 years, builders have relied on the incredible power of the arch. It's a time-proven geometry. On the RoundTail , the rings serve as a pair of arches to create a strong, responsive, forgiving ride.

Because of the RoundTail's rings, the path of impact is no longer a straight line from the bottom bracket shell and rear dropouts to the rider's body. Vibrations must follow the shape of the frame, and the rings dissipate energy from impact.

The RoundTail is the kind of bike that makes you want to ride. It's equal parts bicycle, sculpture and modern art. It's the kind of bike you think about while you're at work. And even better, because of the RoundTail's design, hours on the bike won't leave you beat up and fatigued like a traditional bike. Cycling just became a lot more fun.

The placement of the bottom bracket shell, along with the rear dropouts and seat post, remain the same. The RoundTail offers all the benefits of traditional sizing with the improved ride quality.

The RoundTail eliminates the vertical and direct surface areas of the seat tube and rear stays. The rings join near the front and then open up, allowing air to flow between the rings to reduce drag.

Hollow tubing used in the steel rings creates a frame that is both strong and light. Hollow tubing also allows for internally routed cables and a hidden rear brake that give the bicycle a clean, sleek appearance.

Each RoundTail frame is crafted by an expert frame builder with years of experience whom Lou Tortola has personally selected.

Yes, it's beautiful, but it's also functional. You can stare at your RoundTail - just don't forget to ride it. You'll turn more than a few heads when you do.

The rings on the RoundTail provide a unique shape with greater surface area. Competitors can offer a more attractive way for sponsors to advertise with corporate messages and logos.

With conventional diamond geometry, jarring vibrations are channeled directly to the rider's spine. For any rider in any discipline, comfort matters, which is why bike companies have spent millions developing composites to deliver a more comfortable ride. But they have been stuck for decades, enslaved to the concept of a triangle.
In 2010, after a season filled with long-distance rides, Lou Tortola - inventor of the RoundTail - began to rethink the shape of a bicycle frame. Why had the bicycle frame remained nearly unchanged for so long? Tortola broke through the barriers of the triangle. He believed that a pair of continuous rings beneath the rider would absorb road vibrations without compromising performance or lateral stiffness. Five months later, his vision became a reality.
Laboratory testing and Finite Element Analysis proved that the RoundTail provides more than 10 times the vertical compliance of a standard double-diamond frame, and the ring design absorbs 60 times more road vibrations. This breakthrough reduces stress and fatigue to the rider's body, which means you can spend more time in the saddle - comfortably.
The RoundTail design delivers a bicycle that gives every rider - from the Iron Man competitor to the weekend warrior to the commuter - a strong, fast, enjoyable ride.
