You probably know your fair share of cyclists who never fail to gush about how weight and aerodynamic properties aren’t of any importance to them, and how they ride for fun to fight off the donut and beer weight. Now that’s all fine and dandy, but you’d be lying if you said that a small part of you hears this as an excuse to be lazy. You give them their credit for getting out and riding, but for you riding means something a bit more. There’s just some things you can’t shrug off when it comes to the performance of your bike. Some may call it “snobbery” and some may call it “elitist.” You call it instinct. You don’t let the down talk swing your standards for an uncompromised weight-to-performance ratio. You gush over just the kind of particularity that can be found in the Colnago V1-R.
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 defined 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 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.
One of the most prominent features of the V1-R is the adoption of a new direct mount braking system, which again, minimizes the frontal footprint and provides a cleaner aesthetic. This dual pivot braking system also provides a firmer mounting of the caliper, preventing it to swing from side to side causing brake rub, as single pivot brakes have been known to do. If compatibility concerns you, Shimano offers these new brakes in the 105, Ultegra and Dura-Ace series. For those wishing to use SRAM or Campagnolo components, we have also developed our own brake, which will be available with the frame.
Another major innovation found on the V1-R is represented by the use of carbon fiber monocoque dropouts and an internal replaceable derailleur hanger. The advantage in terms of strength and weight are tenfold compared to the equivalent solution adopted in the past on the M10. Inside the right dropout there is the hole for the rear derailleur cable, suited for both mechanical and electronic groupset.
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.
