About Colnago K.One Time Trial Frameset - KMBW
Frame is Direct Mount Rim Brake model.
Challenge to speed.
Frame developed in the wind tunnel
to guarantee greater driveability at high speeds.
Bottom Bracket - Ceramicspeed - More rigidty and resistance. It takes its cues from the PressFit standard with bearings pressed directly into the bottom bracket shell. This solution optimises the size of this part of the frame, thus increasing its rigidity and flexural strength.
Geometry - More stable at high speed. Its geometrical design has been developed to provide rideability and stability at high speeds. Adjustments give you a wide range of positions so you can find the perfect fit.
Brake System - Maximum power. The front brake is located at the top of the fork, covered by an aerodynamic and flexible cover. This ensures easy access for assembly and maintenance. The system, therefore, provides enhanced efficiency and braking power as well as lightness.
Water System - Less drag. The bottle-cage and bottle integrate seamlessly with the shape of the downtube. This clever solution allows you to reap considerable benefits whilst riding because the increased surface area maximises the aerodynamics around this part of the frame.
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.
