2022 Colnago V3Colnago
All the advantages of Colnago quality in a top racing bike
When we developed V3 we thought of all those cyclists who want to get the most out of their investment. Quality carbon and fittings designed to offer an excellent level of performance and contain costs make V3 a perfectly balanced bike from every point of view.
It blends technical solutions that aim at lightness with aerodynamic details. The line is clean and essential, it can be fitted with covers up to 28 inches. V3 is available in eight sizes and in a single version with disc brakes.
What is the point of making a light bike if you can't ride it effectively? For this reason the geometry has been completely redesigned. The main features are the shorter head tube, the longer fork and a greater balance across all eight size options. The height of the bottom bracket has also been changed, it is lower, to improve the driveability of the bicycle with increased tyres (28c).
Much of the effort has been concentrated in this area of the frame, both to reduce the overall weight of the locking system and to increase its functionality, power and safety. The new locking system is therefore smaller if compared to that of the V2-r and C64, integrated into the frame and allows a greater modulation in tightening.
It has been developed for maximum compatibility with the disc brake system. The new shape with concave sheaths in the upper part (front view) optimizes the wheel passage allowing the use of wide tires (28c), comfort and lateral rigidity.
