Usually on road.cc we'll follow up a first look feature with a full review... and although you won't actually be able to by this bike with its exact livery pictured, we thought the special edition Tifosi x Campagnolo Mons frame with Bora WTO deep rims and a full Super Record Groupset was way too pretty not to share.
You can't actually buy this bike with the Campagnolo-branded frameset; although you can buy a Tifosi Mons frames in stock colours with exactly the same spec, or switch up the spec to your liking/budget by buying from the various retailers who carry Campag components and Tifosi bikes. As Tifosi's distributor told us: The Campagnolo Mons is not for sale, it's a test bike that is designed for customers to test Campagnolo 12 speed systems and from that, can enjoy a 25% discount on various groupset/wheel combination packages from Campagnolo Pro Shop Dealers.
"There is no difference between the standard Tifosi Mons frame and this one other than the paint scheme - if they really wanted that same ride setup, we at Tifosi really love to push that customising element of our bikes, so can very easily build the same bike as the test model."
The Mons in renowned for its lightness, with a modded version unveiled in 2017 weighing in at just 4.6kg. The test bike tips the scales at 6.84kg, and that's with inner tubes and an 11-32 cassette; the WTO wheels are tubeless ready and Campag also do a 11-29 12-speed cassette, so the weight could be trimmed further.
The groupset is the mechanical, rim brake version of Campagnolo Super Record (the electronic version was launched a couple of months back) and the rims are Campag's new 60mm deep Bora WTO's. Here's the full spec list:
Tifosi Mons frame, Campagnolo special edition
Campagnolo Super Record 12 speed groupset (mechanical, rim brake)
Campagnolo Bora WTO 60 wheels
Deda Elementi Superzero handlebars and stem
Deda Elementi Presa bar tape
Schwalbe Pro One tyres (clincher, 25mm)
Prologo Dimension saddle
The standard Mons in the exact spec above would come in at £7,349.99 - but if you buy from one of the Campagnolo dealers who has bought into the demo bike scheme, all the Campag components on that bike will be subject to a 25% discount - bringing it down to £5999.99.

After cobbling together a few hundred quid during his student days off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story), Jack bought his first road bike at the age of 20 and has been hooked ever since. He joined road.cc in 2017 having previously being Staff Writer at 220 Triathlon magazine, and reports on all things tech as well as editing road.cc's live blog. He is also the news editor of our electric-powered sister site eBikeTips. Jack's preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking (the latter being another long story), and on Sunday afternoons he can often be found on an M5 service station indulging in his favourite post-race meal of 20 chicken nuggets, a sausage roll, caramel shortbread and a large strawberry milkshake.
