The V1-r is the new frame from Colnago designed for cyclists who are particular about their bike's weight-to-performance ratio. It is made with the highest quality carbon fiber, selected in cooperation with Ferrari, which is why is we use the Cavallino logo on each frame. The frame is monocoque, with aerodynamic shaped tube sections, and full-carbon rear dropouts. The V1-r is the best monocoque frame produced in Colnago's sixty year history.
One of the most striking features of the V1-R is the adoption of a new standard for the braking system. The choice was made to use direct mount brakes, first developed by Shimano for the new Dura-Ace. The main advantage of this brake is a better integration, both structural and aerodynamic, with the frame and fork. In terms of performance, this translates into a system that is stiffer (and therefore more powerful), lighter, and with cleaner aesthetics. Shimano offers these new brakes in the 105, Ultegra and Dura-Ace series. For the customer wishing to use SRAM or Campagnolo components, we have also developed our own brake, which will be available with the frame.
Colnago sloping gemoetry needs to be fitted by the Virtual top tube "0" in the chart below.
The frame is designed for mechanical or electronic. Cable stops are included for derailleur cables and grommets are included for electric wires.
