New bike alert: Colnago launches new V3Rs race bike

Sam Challis 18 Jul 2019 The V3Rs is the third iteration of Colnago’s monocoque race bike design Colnago will always be best known for its tube-and-lug C-series bikes but that doesn’t mean the brand has tied itself to one construction method. Spending time with the brand and its founder, Ernesto Colnago, it becomes clear that as much as Colnago celebrates its heritage it also embraces innovation. This was why the brand decided to tap into its long-standing relationship with Ferrari several years ago to explore monocoque frame design. Released in 2014, the V1-r was the result. Colnago says it improved upon that bike a couple of years later with the V2-r and has now released the final stage of the V-series project, the V3Rs. Available in both rim and disc versions, the new design brings with it the standard set of claims: it is apparently 70g lighter, 12% stiffer at ...

Cervelo Aspero first-ride review: The go-fast gravel bike

Gravel bikes these days fall somewhere on a spectrum that ranges from ultra-capable and adventure-ready, to pared-down and race-ready, and Cervelo is being very clear where its new Aspero gravel machine falls on that spectrum. The generous tire clearance and multi-diameter wheel compatibility are obvious nods to versatility, but whichever wheel and tire setup you … The post Cervelo Aspero first-ride review: The go-fast gravel bike appeared first on CyclingTips .

Cannondale updates legendary aluminium line with new CAAD13

Cannondale Caad13

Cannondale has today launched the new CAAD13, an all-new aluminium road frameset, following the modern trend of dropped seat stays, aerodynamic tubing, disc brakes and increased tyre clearance. Cannondale has been a pioneering force in high-performance aluminium road bikes for almost four decades, the American brand says the new CAAD13 is faster, smoother, more comfortable and more broadly capable than anything that’s come before it. On first ride impressions, the bike manufacturer is not far off the mark. The new CAAD13 takes several design cues from the brand’s recently updated carbon fibre SuperSix EVO . While it forgoes the cable-integrating aero-profile head tube, it does feature aerodynamic tube profiling throughout, the same D-profile SAVE seat post, lowered seat stays, and 'SpeedRelease' bolt through axles. The top of the range model comes with 45mm KNOT carbon fibre wheels, SRAM Force eTap AXS, and features Cannondale’s new SAVE aerodynamic handlebar and stem. ...

New bike alert: Cannondale launches all-new CAAD13

Stu Bowers Monday, July 15, 2019 - 13:00 Cannondale’s iconic race-ready aluminium line up gets a total revamp Anyone who followed cycling in the nineties will remember Cannondale’s oversized aluminium CAAD (Cannondale Advanced Aluminium Design) bikes winning races well before carbon rolled into town. The likes of the all-conquering Saeco Cannondale squad, and their especially flamboyant leader, Mario ‘Lion King’ Cipollini, helped make these bikes iconic. That heritage has never been forgotten by Cannondale, which unlike many brands, has always upheld its alloy line-up as a race-ready package – not just relegating these bikes to the bottom of the heap as cheaper, entry-level alternatives. Image 9 of 33 Image 9 of 33 Non-carbon racing pedigree Cannondale has maintained the geometry and cutting edge materials required to keep these bikes on pace with what’s expected of a race bike and it says this 13th generation proves alloy can still cut it, ...
