The new V2-r is the top-of-the-line carbon fiber monocoque frame from Colnago. Designed to ensure lightness, rigidity and aerodynamics, the result is a high-quality bicycle capable of handling all terrain. It is based on the V1-r, but it boasts some details that dramatically improve its performance. The weight remains unchanged from the V1-r at 835 grams for a medium sized frame, and the same grade and construction of carbon fiber was also used. The lateral rigidity of the bottom-bracket increased by 13%, and by 4% at the headtube – making the V2-r even more rigid and brilliant during acceleration. From an aesthetic point of view, the integrated seat clamp is a feature which gives the frame cleaner lines, and the toptube/headtube junction has also been redesigned. Cable-routing is internal and central – through the top of the toptube in the same manner as on the Concept. Both brakes are direct-mount, with the rear located at the top of the rear triangle. The V2-r also has clearance for up to 28c tires.
