TAIPEI, Taiwan (April 20) – Dedacciai (Deda) is going to use Specialized’s patented ‘Zertz’-technology. Both parties have announced this in Taipei. The Italian framebuilder will use the visco-elastic damping concept in its own DAVS (Deda Anti-Virbation System) used on alloy and carbon-fibre framesets. Among the customers for these framesets are such names as DeRosa. Specialized uses ‘Zertz’ on several frames, like the Paris-Roubaix model. “When Specialized demonstrated this technology last year, a lot of people were sceptical” says Luca Locatelli, CEO of Deda “ but when our own engineers tested it, the results were confirmed and we got more enthusiastic. “For racers or those who like long, rough rides, ‘Zertz’ makes a world of difference” ads Specialized’s Mike Sinyard. “And now it is proven by an independent source”. The patents concerning the visco-elastic ‘Zertz’-dampers are pending worldwide. (MH)
