2017 COLNAGO CONCEPT SRAM RED ETAP – 54S (58cm) – £8,400
This frame has been developed to be as fast as possible, and represents continuity with the original Colnago Concept project – the first carbon fiber frame, developed by Ernesto Colnago in collaboration with Enzo Ferrari in 1986. It is the combination of pure power and speed. Every detail has been studied to bring the aerodynamic performance to a higher level.
Monocoque carbon fiber construction, designed for optimal aerodynamic integration with the frame. The straight blades are thinly shaped over 90% of their overall length to offer excellent aerodynamic qualities, and the rake is designed to offer precision handling in comparison to a traditional design.
Aerodynamic shape – perfectly integrated with the seat tube. The seatpost clamp is an almost invisible, integral part of the top tube – resulting in maximum aerodynamics as well as clean lines.
The main advantages of these brakes are derived from their ideal integration, structurally and aerodynamically, with the frame and fork. In terms of performance, the dual-pivot design results in a more rigid system compared to center-mount, single-pivot brakes. Along with aerodynamic advantages, they also offer better modulation, lighter weight and a superior aesthetic.
The ThreadFit bottom bracket system is a result of Colnago’s impeccably high standards and desire to continue to produce the best bicycles. It combines the reliability and practicality of a threaded (BSA) bottom bracket with the added width and rigidity of a press-fit shell. From a technical point of view, the system consists of two threaded lightweight alloy cups, easily removable in case of need (as a result of wear, for example), inside of which the two bearings are pressed. It combines great functionality with safety, durability and ease of maintenance.
Each element of this frame is designed to achieve top performance. Thus, routing the cables internally becomes a must for a clean look and maximum aerodynamic performance. The route of the cables is designed for maximum smoothness, thus improving the both the punctuality and crispness of gear changes. The frame is compatible with both mechanical and electronic groups.
