Tyler Mislawchuk is our 2019 Triathlete of the Year, so it seems all-too-appropriate that we feature his speedy ride on the day we announced his big honour. A look at the Dedacciai Scuro 25 DB that helped Mislawchuk to a record-setting 2019.

Mislawchuk takes a corner at the ITU World Triathlon Edmonton in July.

Italy’s Dedacciai is not very well known, but in fact produced many of the tubes used for the sports top riders through the 90s, racking up a number of Tour and Giro victories over the years. While the company branched out into frame building about a decade ago, it remains a tiny player in the bike market and certainly not well-known in North America. All of which makes little difference to Tyler Mislawchuk, who enjoyed the season of his life in 2019 riding his Scuro 25 DB.

The carbon monocoque frame weights just 950 g (that’s for the medium – there are five sizes available: S, M, L, XL, XXL) with the adjustable aero seat post adding 235 g to the total and the carbon monococque fork adding another 430 g.

The custom painted carbon monocoque frame and fork are extremely light. Mislawchuk rides the Deda Elementi wheels – in Lausanne he went with the SL30s. In the shot above, racing in Edmonton, he was on the SL45s.
The Scuro 25 DB is only available with disc brakes. Mislawchuk rides with Dura Ace components and a Rotor crank and chainrings.
Triathletes will be much more familiar with the Deda Elementi components that are much more common – the Dura Ace brake levers sit on a Deda bar and Mislawchuk goes with a Deda’s SuperZero TT draft-legal aero bar.
It certainly seems to work for Mislawchuk, who has been riding a Dedacciai since 2015, when the company was looking for Rio-bound athletes. He’s remained on the bike ever since.
