Builder: Stellina Sport/ALAN
This frame is fully constructed in Italy at the ALAN workshop and sent to Stellina Sport in the U.S. for final graphics and paint application. In this way, we can offer our customers the tried-and-true geometry and craftsmanship ALAN has perfected over nearly 40 years working exclusively with aluminum alloys and carbon fiber.
The Roland 5 is made from Amadeus Xtreme 7046 aluminum alloy triple-butted for lightness and uses oversized tubing for the down tube to lend strength and stiffness. The rear seat and chainstays are made from Toray T-700 carbon fiber to add comfort and stiffness to the rear triangle to aid in power transfer. At 1250 grams, the Roland 5 is one of the lightest cyclocross frames on the market.
When it comes to finish, the Roland 5 is available in either a standard finish of brushed aluminum with graphics and clear coat, or full custom finish. The full custom option gives you limitless possibilities to make your ALAN frame an expression of your personality and preferences. Working directly with our painter, Canyon Smith, you’ll create your very own combination of color and design. While custom finishes are priced by material costs and time spent in the design and painting phases, the expense is well worth it. The resulting frame is a unique, hand-finished work of art made to endure the rigors of cyclocross and maintain its beauty.
