BENOTTI VIAL evo Disc frameset by ax-lightness
Based on our Eurobike Gold Award winner VIAL evo D / Ultra / Race and Eurobike-Award winner VIAL evo XC MTB, we now present the next generation of the VIAL evo line after intensive development work: the VIAL evo Disc!
As with the VIAL evo Ultra and VIAL evo Race, the focus of development was on the ideal symbiosis of lightness, stability and comfort; and all of this without comprising suitability for everyday use! This is made possible thanks to the ingenious construction, intelligently formed tube cross-sections and the choice of strictly selected carbon prepreg material from motorsport and aerospace. In over 30 hours of handicraft in our factory in Germany, we shape these into an absolute masterpiece of technology. Lamination in clean room and curing in autoclave enable peak levels that cannot be achieved with conventional manufacturing processes. The result is a disc frame of the 700 gram class with outstanding technical properties that does not shy away from heavy riders.
The VIAL evo Disc has been developed together with our professionals and stands out with its extreme stiffnesses both laterally as well as in the bottom bracket whilst still offering excellent comfort values at the same time.
According to independant EFBE comparative testing, the frame yields a ground-breaking STW value of 159.83 N/mm/kg (according to Roadbike-standard), that outshines everything that has gone before and surpasses current high-end competitors by over 40%. This is prove of our superior engineering, optimal material utilization and craftsmanship with carbon prepreg materials.
Engineering, construction as well as manufacturing to full extent take place in Germany and make our VIAL evo Disc a genuine handmade in Germany product.
The enormous lightness paired with extreme rigidity transforms every pedal stroke into powerful thrust and catapults you into new spheres.
The frame not only passes all ISO and overload tests with flying colors, but just as well our mich higher in-house standards. For this reason, the frame is approved for a rider weight of up to 120 kg.
The butted seattube and slim seatstays without brake bridge offer a high flex and therewith provide maximum seating comfort, even on epic rides.
The possibility to mount tires up to a width of 32mm gives the bikes the greatest possible versatility.
The classical slim silhouette and the hourglass-shaped headtube of the frame along with our newly developed disc fork ensure good aerodynamics.
With the VIAL evo Disc you can choose amongst individual painting options and design your dream bike according to your personal taste. The bike either comes in our typical ax visible carbon finish where you can choose between matt or high-gloss clear coat and various colors for the painted decals or you decide for an individualized full paint job.
For clean aesthetics and highest possible compatibility the VIAL evo Disc is prepared for different shifting options, so that both mechanical as well as electronic shifting groupsets can be used. There also are special versions available with cable ports specifically designed for Sram eTAP, Shimano Di2 or Campagnolo EPS electronic shifting groups.

Great frame! State-of-the-art. Great successor of the Vial Evo "D".
After 7 years of riding a Ax-Lightness Vial Evo "D" (Large), I wanted to switch to a disc breaking braking frame set for my main bike: the Benotti Vial Evo Disc Large with black decals.
As an experienced bike builder there were no special difficulties in building this frame set with Dura Ace R9170 and many carbon goodies. Inside two tubes some carbon residu was easily vacuumed out. After 1000 km I van only say that the ride quality is superb! A little less forgiving than the old Vial Evo "D" but it does equally well with road buzz and steering is much more stable. Also acceleration in and out of the saddle is excellent. I am used to the geometry and with a 110mm horizontal stem slammed on the headset and a 280mm seat post the bike fit is perfect for me (178cm). I do use short TT-bars (in the end I am still a triathlete) and 165 mm carbon cranks. Final build with al accessories is 7,2 kg, slightly more than the rim brake version.
I can recommend this frameset to everyone who is in the market for the ultimate disc frame set. In my opinion better than the lightweight version of other (German) manufacturers. Benotti uses sensible standards like BB386 EVO, 1-1/8" to 1-1/4" tapered headset, 27,2 mm seat post, etc. With other manufacturers you get less compatible or comfortable standards like BB30, BB86 or 1-1/2" lower headset. The build and quality is excellent and surpasses everything I have seen from so called premium brands.
Keep up the good work!
