The Colnago monocoque frame ready to make your dreams come true
Every detail has been studied and developed to obtain the maximum in terms of performance and comfort.
When Colnago created the initial designs for the all new V3R-S it focused on it's experience with the V1-R and the V2-R. Colnago were then able to develop and improve the concepts of lightness and aerodynamics of it's road frames. Today the V3 represents the best of Colnago technology applied to a monocoque frame. V3 is fast on long climbs, in windy plains, on big tours, in stages and the most demanding Granfondo. It is perfect in all situations.
While retaining some details from the two frames that preceded it, V1-R and V2-R, the V3R-S design has profoundly changed to align with some standards that have consolidated in recent years, not least the possibility of mounting larger tyres - up to 28C. It's lines are extremely clean and boasts excellent aerodynamic qualities together with an unprecedented lightness. V3R-S is available in eight sizes from 42S through top 58S and two version, direct mount rim brakes and disc brakes.
What is the point of making a light bike if you can't ride it effectively? For this reason the geometry has been completely redesigned., The main features are the shorter head tube, the longer fork and a greater balance across all eight size options. The height of the bottom bracket has also been changed, it is lower, to improve the ride-ability of the bicycle with increased tyre widths (28C).
To reach a new weight target of 790g for the size 50s in the raw disc version (including the metal components) we used a new type of carbon fibre that allowed Colnago to significantly increase the rigidity to lateral flexions. The new V3R-S, compared to the V2-R, has a 12% higher rigidity in the rear compartment and 6% in the front head tube area. The ability to absorb vertical shocks has improved significantly, which translates into greater comfort.
Completely new and redesigned, the V3R-S fork is much lighter compared to that of the V2-R. Its raw weight (uncut) corresponds to 390g, TFS integrated steerer thread included. In a 50s size, which we can consider an average size, the cut fork can weigh just 340g. the new shape with concave sheaths in the upper part (front view) optimizes the wheel passage allowing the use of wide (28C), along with comfort and lateral rigidity.
While the rim brake version is based on the use of dual pivot brakes with direct mounting and external cable routing, the disc version used the exclusive TFS integrated fork system. The cables pass entirely, internally to the Colnago SE9 stem and then through the fork steerer. The frame is thus extremely clean and technically more aerodynamic.
Much of the effort has been concentrated in this area of the frame, both to reduce the overall weight of the locking system and to increase its functionality, power and safety. Then locking system, is therefore smaller if compared to that of the V2-R and C64, integrated into the frame and allows a greater modulation in tightening.

Delivery of Bikes
We ship all our bikes free of charge within the United Kingdom (excl. Jersey and the Channel Islands at this time) and all our bikes come pre-assembled with just a few tweaks required (Please see our Bike Build Instruction page for details of assembly required).
All our bikes undergo a safety check before being re-boxed for shipping which can during busy periods take a little longer to complete so whilst we aim to ship all our bikes within two working days of the order please allow for additional time for this process.
All our consignments irrespective of the carrier require a signature upon delivery, deliveries are typically made between 08:00 and 18:00 so please bare this in mind when choosing a delivery address.
We do try when possible to reuse packaging from our own suppliers in order to send purchased items to our customers, we ask if the packaging is still in good condition after you've received your goods then please try to use it again or recycle if not possible.
