Colnago might seem like a traditionalist company, but that’s only when looking in the rear-view mirror. They’re constantly trying new things, much of it is trying new things to improve the product & anticipate the future. The V1-R Disc frameset is the future set up now. It’s an aero road bike with rotor disc brakes.
A FERRARI RESHAPED AS A BIKE
Working in cooperation with Italian luxury sports car manufacturer, Ferrari, Colnago selected the highest quality carbon fiber to construct a monocoque frame that prides itself on aerodynamic talent. All of the V1-R's tubes, including the fork blades and the seat stays, have a special shape that's been optimized in the wind tunnel to ensure the most aero-friendly lines in all directions, while still achieving flexural and torsional rigidity that many aero bikes lack. Additionally, the V1-R Disc frame comes with a dedicated seatpost which ensures its aero design doesn't stop at the seatpost collar, but extends all the way to the saddle.
By the way, the V1-R Disc features internal cable routing that can run either standard mechanical or Di2 electronic shifting and is also compatible with a seat tube battery. Options don't stop there. As a disc specific frame, the brakes can be set up either as hydraulic or mechanical.
Knowing that bottom brackets can be a fickle subject, Colnago said the heck with it and introduced the Threadfit82.5 patented proprietary standard which delivers the reliability and practicality of a threaded bottom bracket (BSA), and the width and rigidity of a standard press-fit. Furthermore, the Threadfit82.5 bottom bracket offers compatibility with all the Pressfit 86.5 BB versions.
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.
