Description

2016 Colnago 52 cm V1-R Dura Ace

Colnago needs as little introduction in the bicycle world as Ferrari does in automotive circles, so it’s fitting that the two Italian legends have once more collaborated, just as they did to create the first carbon Colnago frames in the mid-1980s. Enzo Ferrari may no longer be alive to see the V1-r bear his company’s legendary Cavallino Rampante (prancing horse) and Ernesto Colnago, now 83, may no longer be on the workshop floor as he would have been back then, but the powerful influence of both men lives strong, and it’s a bit of that magic I was hoping to find rekindled at the heart of this latest creation. 

With its enviable heritage, Colnago has never seen the need to entice potential customers with hi-tech claims or reams of performance statistics – but times are changing. Not only has competition grown fierce in the marketplace, so too the pro teams (Colnago sponsors Team Europcar) are increasingly demanding those all-important marginal gains, and I believe the V1-r is Colnago’s response. It was launched at almost the same moment as its latest flagship C60 last autumn, and it feels as if the two bikes are designed to fulfil different needs. The C60 is pure Colnago, in the best traditions of the brand, while the V1-r is made to compete against the army of super light and aero bikes that are appealing to a new breed of tech-savvy racers.

The V1-R was created to fulfill the needs of all aspects of racing. It is aero, light, stiff, and ready to compete with the top dogs of the bicycle industry. Colnago has a very deep history with building carbon bicycle frames, which has only helped Colnago over the years to be more and more fruitful. Today, it competes against the likes of Specialized Venge, Cervelo S5 and the likes, with victories against them in the pro peloton. Colnago has over and over proved itself to be one of the best bicycle manufacturers in the world.
