Frame COLNAGO V3RS
Frame COLNAGO V3RS
Is there still need to present the Colnago V3rs, this perfect Frame COLNAGO V3RS ultra-light monohull, capable of shining in the high mountains but also on the flat ground at extreme speeds like the C68?
Here’s what Colnago engineers say about their masterpiece:
When we started working on this project, we did so based on our experience with the V1-r and V2-r, which allowed us to develop and improve the concepts of lightness and aerodynamics of our frames. This is why V3Rs today represents the best of Colnago technology applied to a monohull. V3Rs is fast, everywhere: on long climbs, windswept plains, big Stage Tours. A perfect bike in all situations.
Completely new and redesigned, the V3Rs fork is much lighter compared to that of the V2-r. Its raw weight (uncut) corresponds to 390 grams, TFS integrated steerer thread included. In a 50s size, which we can consider an average size, the cut fork can weigh just 340 grams. The new shape with concave sheaths in the upper part (front view) optimizes the wheel passage allowing the use of wide tyres (28c), along with comfort and lateral rigidity.
While retaining some details from the two frames that preceded it, V1-r and V2-r, the V3Rs design has profoundly changed to align with some standards that have been consolidated in recent years, not least the possibility of mounting larger tyres – up to 28 inches. It’s extremely clean and boasts excellent aerodynamic qualities together with an unprecedented lightness. V3Rs is available in eight sizes from 42s through to 58s and in two versions, direct mount rim brakes and disc brakes
To reach a new weight target of 790 grams we used a new type of carbon fibre that allowed Colnago to significantly increase the rigidity to lateral flexions. The new V3Rs has a 12% higher rigidity in the rear compartment .
