About Colnago CX Zero Disc Ultegra Di2 11sp 2016 - BRWH
The all new Colnago CX Zero Disc provides a one up on on the CX Zero with the added Disc Brakes. The CX Zero Disc has a new rear triangle redesigned and reinforced to accommodate the brake caliper. The fork is completely new, structured to respond to the stress-sided disc during braking , providing stability and absence of vibrations.
The Colnago CX Zero Disc personifies everything Colnago has learned from building the best bikes on the planet for the last 60 years. It is the bike for “every rider” looking for the best overall value and experience from a road bike. It harks back to an era in professional cycling when riders had one bike for every road race; they raced that bike to win every day from the Spring Classics to the Fall Classics and every Grand Tour and single-day race in between. The CX Zero combines CLASSIC frame geometry for all day and everyday riding with the most advanced materials and frame design of any bike on the market today. If you look at road race bikes from the days of quill stems, or as recent as a decade ago, you do not see the dramatic drop from the saddle to the bars. This CLASSIC geometry for fit allowed riders of the pro peloton to maximise their efforts day-in and day-out for an entire season over varied terrain and varied road conditions.
NEW for the CX Zero Disc is the Colnago EXCLUSIVE and PROPRIETARY press-fit bottom bracket! For the first time on a road bike, Colnago introduces a PROPRIETARY pressfit bottom bracket. Colnago has never been a company to “jump on the bandwagon” of the current trend. Colnago has been experimenting with the design for years. Like the integrated headset, Colnago saw the inherent problems with the current design and would not adopt the technology without making the necessary changes to ensure longevity, reliability and serviceability of the bottom bracket. The result is the first-ever, COLNAGO PROPRIETARY press-fit bottom bracket! Long ago, the FAMOUS Colnago C-40 first proved that rider comfort and less fatigue combined with greater frame efficiency equaled an unmatched winning combination.
The Colnago C-40 earned an unprecedented 13 PODIUM FINISHES in PARIS-ROUBAIX over a 6 year period! The C-40 is the bike that made the world realise what an advanced knowledge of carbon fiber, frame design and manufacturing processes can achieve, succeeding in a race so harsh it DESTROYED competitors’ bikes and destroyed the competition! The CX Zero takes all the knowledge and essence of this era and combines it with the most advanced, ground braking design and construction method. The CX Zero offers the greatest performance of any Colnago across the greatest range of rider ability and budget. From World-Tour racers in Paris-Roubaix or Le Tour de France to the weekend warrior, the Colnago CX Zero is a winner!
Colnago have optimised ride quality on the CX Zero Disc while still offering bestever lateral frame rigidity together with perfectly balanced performance.

More About The Manufacturer Colnago
Colnago Ernesto & C. S.r.l. or Colnago is a manufacturer of high-end road-racing bicycles founded by Ernesto Colnago in 1954 near Milano in Cambiago, Italy. Instead of following his family's farming business, Ernesto Colnago chose to work in the cycle trade, apprenticing first with Gloria Bicycles at 13, subsequently taking up road racing. After a bad crash ended his racing career, he began subcontracting for Gloria, opened his own shop (1954) and built his first frames the same year. Much in demand as a racing mechanic, he was second mechanic on the Nivea team Giro d'Italia under Faliero Masi in 1955, eventually being employed as head mechanic for the Molteni team of Belgian cycling legend Eddy Merckx.
The company first became known for high quality steel framed bicycles, and later as one of the more creative cycling manufacturers responsible for innovations in design and experimentation with new and diverse materials including carbon fiber, now a mainstay of modern bicycle construction.
