| Colnago CX1 - Revolution |
The famous italian company is going to offer a brand new frame in November 08. The CX-1 is designed for racers looking an agressive and modern frame. Colnago focused on improving the stiffness to transfer the power as well as possible, but as well on the weight (1010g) to climb in the best conditions.
CX1 - Revolution
While it lost its interest when the clinchers got released, the tubular is coming back at the same time as the carbon wheels, since 5 to 6 years. For our friends the mountainbikers, the tubulars are not so common, the difficulties to repair them and their high price do not make justice to their ride qualities. Tubular MTB wheels are very rare, only a couple of manufacturers dare shyly offering such a rim. It seems like the trend is changing since Mavic is doing it tii! Light-bikes.de got the chance to take a couple of shoots, during the world cup in Offenburg, of tubular CrossMax for a Cannondale Lefty fork.
