For 2011 the immensely popular CX-1 Evo carbon monocoque frame that has won stages at the Giro díItalia and the Paris-Nice has a brand-new look for the upcoming season and, while retaining all its mechanical features, introduces internal cable routing for the rear brake. Our pro teams have been blown away by the CX-1 Evoís quality and ride performance, combining the rigidity needed for maximum power transfer when sprinting or climbing with rock-steady handling.
At the heart of this winning combination is the CX-1 Evoís monocoque front triangle, which is moulded in one piece, in our alfa carbon blend, combined with computer-designed polygonal cross-section tubes entirely designed with the aid of CAD and finite element analyses.
The CX-1 has a special monocoque carbon fibre front triangle with an assembled rear triangle which is joined with a special proprietary bonding process. Colnago's new CX-1 frame is the top of Colnagoís monocoque frame range and is positioned close to the Colnago Extreme Power and Extreme-C in performance and design.
Colnago's CX-1 was created for strong riders who have asked for an aggressive, ultra-modern monocoque frameset from Colnago. The CX-1 is a high-performance frameset with a dynamic ride that will allow riders to fly up any climb, thanks to its light weight, yet itís rigid enough to win any sprint without losing energy.
Multi-shape top tube: Thanks to the unique polygonal profile of the CX-1's top tube, this design provides a very strong, solid structure with two flat surfaces on bottom and top for extra stiffness and the polygonal profile also disperses extraneous road vibrations.
Rear triangle: CX-1's rear chain stay and seat stay shape have been developed to optimize overall torsional and lateral rigidity without adding weight.
Lay-Up Optimization: Colnago's new CX-1 uses both high modulus composite (HM) and high-strength (HR) unidirectional composite with a 3K twill finish. During the development of the CX-1, thanks to 3D design & Finite Element Analysis (FEM), Colnago has created an extremely accurate, optimized carbon fibre composite lay-up. Particularly in the key zones where force is transmitted to the road for an incredible ride & performance.
Exclusive Colnago Carbon Fibre Fabric: Unlike many carbon fibre frames, Colnago uses an exclusive pre-preg Carbon Fibre Fabric that is specially selected by using electronic scanning technology that ensures the fabric will have the maximum resin dispersal and provide the lightest frame possible.
Colnago Headset System / C-HS2: One of the key points of the Colnago Revolution development project is the introduction of an all-new headset system, the C-HS2 Colnago Headset System. This is a special, semi-integrated headset. Itís an all-new concept from Colnago Revolution that allows easier assembly and maintenance without removing the entire headset assembly. The C-HS2 also provides extra stability to the head tube, confirmed by real-life racing on the C-HS by Team Rabobank riders like Graeme Brown & Oscar Freire, who won various stages of the GP Mallorca and Tirreno Adriatic races.
