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 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 and pioneering 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 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 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 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.
Knowing that bottom brackets can be a fickle subject, Colnago said to 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.
Jenson pairs this incredible frame with a custom set of components that can help you find your way to the podium. Shimano Dura-Ace/Ultegra drivetrain provides crisp accurate shifts, and with 11 speeds at your disposal, you will always be in the perfect gear. The lightweight Shimano RS21 wheelset spins fast and smooth on Schwalbe rubber. Shimano Ultegra direct mount brakes provide the stopping power necessary to tame the wiliest of descents. Topped off with Easton Alloy cockpit, this custom VR-1 is sure to provide many miles of smiles.
