THE MAIN FEATURE OF THE FRAME.
The hallmark of the frame is the lug embellished with an arabesque pattern. This exquisite feature has caused cycling experts to consider it to be a priceless gem of Italian manufacturing. This ornamental trait elevates this frame and gives it the status of a true work of art in the cycling world.
THE WINNING CHOICE.
Another magnum opus of Colnago’s is the straight front fork. Introduced onto the market in the late 80s, it soon showed its mettle in term of unparalleled absorption of road vibrations and rideability. It became rapidly highly popular and was soon copied by all our competitors.
THE HISTORICAL SHIFT FROM THE ROUND TUBE.
One of Colnago’s best known trademarks is the star-shaped tube – a distinctive feature in the world of steel frames. At the time, it was a trailblazing design and was renowned for its “stellar profile”. It is remembered as being a watershed in cycling history as the traditional round tube was replaced by a polygonal shape.
