As you can imagine, when Cipollini launch something they tend to do it in a calm, understated fashion very much similar to the persona of their eponymous founder. They’d certainly never make, say, a big budget short film about it…
Last year Cipollini unveiled their Nuke TT bike and this year, following on from that, they’ve launched the NK1K, a full-on aero road bike.
Never lacking in confidence, Cipollini describe the NK1K as the ‘revolution over two wheels’, and the bike’s monocoque frame is made from top-end Toray T1000 carbon, as is the matching fork. Frame weight is on the heavier side, in line with the rest of the Cipollini range, at 1,120g for an unpainted medium.
