Colnago CX-1

Colnago is paddling its surf board up the technological tidal wave sweeping the bike industry with the release of the CX-1, the latest carbon monocoque frame from the Italian company.

A result of Colnago’s Revolution development and design project, the CX-1 frame is the latest Colnago to be made using a monocoque construction process that allows the low-cost manufacture of multiple frame sizes. The front triangle is made as one-piece with the rear stays bonded in place. High modulus carbon with a 3K twill finish is used in the building of the frame.

Colnago have employed Finite Element Analysis to fine-tune the carbon lay-up in key areas, and the frame is claimed to be the stiffest frameset currently available with Colnago decals. The top tube bears a polygonal profile and the chainstays and seatstays “have been developed to optimize the overall torsional and lateral rigidity without adding weight to the frame.”

The CX-1 is to be available in eight sizes (sloping geometry) and three colour choices. Price TBC. Release is scheduled for October.
