Colnago V2-R Road Frameset

The Colnago V2-R is a top of the range carbon fibre monocoque frameset that has been designed to ensure that optimum lightness, rigidity and aerodynamics has been achieved in one neat package. The V2-R, evolved from the previous V1-R, retains its lightweight qualities while increasing its lateral stiffness at the bottom bracket and head tube for enhanced power transfer and steering precision. With an integrated seat clamp, concealed cables and smooth lines throughout this frameset efficiently cuts through the air while the new direct mounts for the brake calipers provide enhanced stopping power.

Geometry Information

 

Mr Hinterholz Really stiff frame and at the same time comfortable, perfect painting finish.
V2r guy Only had a single ride but it was obvious that the bike is very stiff but still very comfortable. Even big hits are not too harsh. Frame came with standard and slammed headset cap. You will want to order chainstays protector and cable rubber grommets. Very happy.
Mr. D. Martin This monocoque frame is a top-of-the-line product; it is extremely light and stiff and therefore, it constitutes the core of my new climbing machine.
Simon K What can I say? I`ve been riding carbon for over 5 years now on some nice frames but the V2-R takes handling and comfort to the next level; and beyond. I built mine using my favoured Sram components with 3T and Selle Italia finishing components and Mavic Ksyrium wheels. The roads in my neck of the woods are, lets face it, not the smoothest and there are sections of road that I hated on my old rides for the bone-jarring I got through the frame and bars. Thats all now gone with the V2-R; the frame just soaks up the vibrations in the road and at times I feel as if I am almost floating over the road surface (especially when compared to my previous rides) it really is incredible the way the frame does this and makes riding so much more enjoyable. The frame is also incredibly stiff and you can feel every push on the pedals being transmitted to the back wheel. Handling is a dream too; the way the frame soaks up vibrations couple with its stiffness instil a greater level of confidence when cornering and descending. Should you get one? Absolutely yes. Expensive, certainly, but worth every penny.
