The V1-r is the new frame from Colnago designed for cyclists who are particular about their bike’s weight-to-performance ratio. It is made with the highest quality carbon fiber, selected in cooperation with Ferrari, which is why is we use the Cavallino logo on each frame. The frame is monocoque, with aerodynamic shaped tube sections, and full-carbon rear dropouts.
The V1-r is the best monocoque frame produced in Colnago’s sixty year history.

A new milestone has been reached at Casa Wilier. The Cento1’s fifth generation is now here. After Cento1, Cento1SL, Cento1SLR and Cento1SR, Wilier wanted to push themselves further. Once again. The basis for this 2014 development has been to bring Wilier closer to the aerodynamic efficiency of the TwinBlade, coupled with the Cento1's versatility and performance.
Cento1 is now working with the the wind. Performance, efficiency, comfort and now even more aerodynamic. Cento1 AIR represents the culmination of all of our knowledge acquired in recent years.

The ultimate goal is to improve the bicycle: to make it more efficient, with less rider fatigue and no sacrifice in strength or reliability. The design must be striking. From a marketing standpoint, the frame’s characteristics and technical advantages must stand out and not be completely hidden inside the frame. Star-shaped tubes are a proven design element and have become a signature design element for Colnago frames. It is from this proven design, with the goal of increased frame efficiency without significant sacrifice in comfort or strength, with which the Colnago C60 was born.
In the C60 various cross sections of tubes have increased volume, thinner walls and drastic tube profiles. No attention to detail was spared. The rear dropouts have been completely redesigned for reduced weight and increased lateral stiffness. Even the water bottle mounts were redesigned to reduce weight while maximizing strength.
