PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Sette Forza Elite Dura-Ace Carbon Road Bike

Sette's release of the Forza Elite proves that it's possible to have two bikes that earn the right to claim top of the line status.

The differences between the Forza Elite and the Forza are so few they can be counted on one hand.

Most notably a traditional seatpost has been substituted for the Integrated Seat Mast on the Forza Elite. For many riders, a traditional seatpost provides a measure of practicality and versatility that outweighs the edge of the envelope performance advantage enabled by an Integrated Seat Mast.

Otherwise, the two frames are identical right down to the internal cable routing. Both are hand crafted from the same 3K high modulus carbon fiber with the same precise geometry that is anchored by the same full carbon, tapered fork.

The component spec remains a jaw dropper with Dura-Ace 7900 used throughout. You will not find a lesser Shimano part tucked away anywhere on the bike. Mavic's Cosmic Carbone SL wheelset is fitted with Vittoria's Open Corsa EVO CX tires giving you one of the best wheel and tire combinations on the planet. Fizik's venerable Arione saddle provides a key contact point. 3T's Ergonova Pro handle bar and Arx Pro Stem provide a solid and reliable front end.

Without pedals, a 57cm Forza Elite weighs 16.33 pounds.

Oversize/overweight charge applies to this item

An outstading bike at a great price - Apr 23, 2014

Thomas M.
Casselberry, FL

I have been riding this bike since October 2012. I bought it with the intention of taking the parts off and putting them on a name-brand frame. However, a year and a half and 6,100 miles later I am still riding the bike as it was shipped. The only thing I changed was the seat (personal preference). I am sure that a professional rider will be able to find something wrong with the bike, but in the past year I have ridden 25 rides over 100 miles (maximum ride 150 miles) and I can't find anything I would change. If you need the status symbol of riding a big-name brand don't buy this bike. But if you want a great bike at a great price I highly recommend it.

Awesome bike - Apr 16, 2014

For the price it's one awesome bicycle. I've had a Trek OCLV bike wanted to upgrade all components. One I priced everything out this bike was the same price. You pretty much get the frame/fork for free. Have had many compliments. Rides incredible, priced big name brand bikes with cheaper components and was 1to2 thousand more. With dura ace you will easily spend 7,000 on a big name brand bike. Sette is my new bike now and from now on!

What a difference - Apr 02, 2014

I'm no professional cyclist, but I ride pretty much when ever I have the opportunity. I had been riding a fully aluminum Raleigh touring bike which weighed at least 26 pounds so switching to full carbon was mind blowing. I'm a firm believer that the components make the bike. So long as the frame is sturdy, and has the right geometry for what you're trying to do I don't see the need to own a super expensive frame. This bike is therefore perfect for me. I've put about 1000 miles on it, and so far the Dura Ace components have been flawless, the Mavic wheel set have been rock solid (although they do act as sails in a crosswind), and the overall weight (about 17 pounds with pedals, and water battle cages) means I'm climbing the foothills in Colorado with FAR less effort than my previous bike. Definitely recommend it.

Sette Forza Elite - Sep 23, 2013

I have had this bike for approx. 2 years. "Knock on wood" this bike has not called for any repairs other than regular tune-ups and 2 chain replacements. The bike itself is very fast, I live in North Dakota where the roads are as flat as they come and this bike is built for that environment. I will agree with the other reviewer that crosswinds do make for an interesting ride given the deep dish rims. The bike climbs well for average sized hills however, I took it to the bear tooth pass in Montana for a race and struggled. The heavier "aero" wheels and the standard crank made that type of climbing very challenging. In essence, this is an amazing bike at a really great price but it is certainly set up for fast flats to mild slopes.

Rockwell Relay 2013 (Moab to St George) - Jun 10, 2013

RODNEY J.
KAYSVILLE, UT

I purchased this bike in 2012 and thought I'd try road biking as I was dating an avid "roady" who'd done the LOTOJA 4 times (LOgan, ut TO JAckson, wy). (For over 18 years, I've pounded trails and mountain roads as a mountain rider.) I was on her support crew and saw the beauty of road biking and became more and more interested in this sport. This weekend (June 7 - 8) my wife (the LOTOJA lady mentioned earlier), another couple and myself did the Rockwell Relay - Moab, UT to St. George, UT. A 527 mile relay. I rode this bike on legs 3, 7 & 11...around 156 miles. This was my first road event ever! The Geometry, stock saddle fit me perfectly. (By the way, I am NOT a small rider, either 245 lbs) I averaged on 2 of my 3 rides over 14.5 MPH and one ride 17.2 MPH!!! In the year that I've owned this bike, I've clocked up somewhere around 2,000 miles. I've tried to "break" it and with my strength and riding it "hard" and it won't break. This bike is tough and reliable!!! Believe me! I know firsthand! The carbon gives a firm, but forgiving ride. The Mavic Cosmic deep dish (55 mm??) rims are great for going into headwinds, but CAUTION should be used when attempting to plow through with a strong (15+ MPH) crosswind...it can be rather exciting???!!! The bike climbs like nothing I've ever tried before. The Shimano Dura-Ace components are perfect; lightweight, strong and precise. Adjusting can be done on-the-fly and they keep for the next up or down shift. Next year, I am planning on taking this bike on the LOTAJA ride with my wife as this will be her last year of doing that ride. If I were asked if I'd buy this bike again, my answer is "YES"...in a heartbeat! I get a lot of comments on how attractive the bike is. When others view the components, they are very impressed with it's weight and component group. What you get for the money is 40 to 50% more than some bike shops. You really have nothing to lose with PricePoint.com as you can always ship it back if you're not satisfied or if it doesn't fit you just right. As for sizing, it seems to be just as advertised. The sizing chart is absolutely correct...at least for me. I'm 6' 1" and the XL frame fits me perfectly with room for a taller rider if needed. Hope this helps someone out there. Rodney Johnson. Kaysville, UT
