Winter is coming, and off-road training is a good way to stay fit during winter. Here are the legendary Italian frame builder Ernesto Colnago’s Cyclocross and Mountain Bike 2014 series.
Colnago Prestige 2014
Prestige is the top-of-the-line model of Colnago cyclocross series. Developed with input from cycle-cross legend Sven Nys, the Cross Prestige is the ultimate carbon-fiber cross frame. A monocoque front triangle makes it tough and light, while lugged seatstays and chainstays maximize the tire clearance. The unique support between the top tube and seat tube developed at Sven Nys’s request to increase carrying comfort when on the shoulder.
Colnago World Cup 2014
The World Cup’s double-butted 6000 series aluminum alloy tubes are light but strong and shaped for greater stiffness. This makes for a fast, sure-handling ride that can deal with the inevitable hits that racing ing off-road in mud and snow is bound to bring. Clean lines and simple tube shapes ensure plenty of mud clearance and reliability season after season.
The C29 Italia is the top of the Colnago mountain bike range for 2014. Colnago uses eight different types of carbon-fiber for the C29 Italia frame. The internal area of the tubes is made from 1k carbon-fiber , the lugs use Nano-technology and the external area of the tube is made from 3k carbon-fiber .The C29 Italia has a tapered 1′ 1/2” – 1’1/8” head tube to give better bike handling. The rear brake is a post mount 140mm disk brake, with the possibility of using 160mm disk.
The MC27 carbon monocoque frame is Colnago’s latest contribution to the world of high-performance mountain bikes. New 27.5” wheels offer the perfect balance of rolling efficiency and responsive handling. Using the same race-proven and time-tested construction techniques as the now legendary Colnago M10 frame, the MC27 offers unparalleled led efficiency and responsiveness.In another groundbreaking move, Colnago has utilized a Shimano proprietary press-fit bottom bracket on the MC27 – creating the most laterally stiff frame for unparalleled power transfer to the rear wheel.
The MC27 has a tapered 1′ 1/2” – 1’1/8” head tube for more precise handling and precision on technical terrain. The rear brake is a post mount 140mm disk brake – with the possibility to use a 160mm disk. It also has a 12 x 42 thru-axle rear end for the ultimate in efficient power transfer and precise handling.
