On this model Colnago decided to go for the external seatpost clamp.

Colnago C-RS:

  • "entry level" carbon frame (blend of a cheaper fibers),
  • integrated seatpost clamp enhances its deflection,
  • 27,2 mm seatpost diameter + lowered seat stays - top tube joint for more compliance,
  • the frameset accommodates up to 25 mm wide tires.

Much more seatpost deflection means more compliance.

Compact seat and chainstays for more precision.

Colnago A1r (replaced Strada SL):

  • aluminium frame with extremely smooth welds,
  • full carbon fork (blades and steering tube made of carbon fiber),
  • smaller seat tube diameter for less weight better comfort - 27,2 mm,
  • Press Fit bottom bracket,
  • internal cable routing.
