The Colnago CX Zero personifies everything Colnago has learned from building the best bikes on the planet for the last 60 years. It is the bike for ''every rider'' looking for the best overall value and experience from a road bike. It harks back to an era in professional cycling when riders had one bike for every road race; they raced that bike to win every day from the Spring classics to the Fall classics and every Grand Tour and single-day race in between. The CX Zero combines classic frame geometry for all day and every-day riding with the most advanced materials and frame design of any bike on the market today. If you look at road race bikes from the days of quill stems, or as recent as a decade ago, you do not see the dramatic drop from the saddle to the bars. This classic geometry for fit allowed riders of the pro peloton to maximize their efforts dayin and day out for an entire season over varied terrain and varied road conditions. Colnago was able to optimize ride quality on the CX Zero while still offering best ever lateral frame rigidity together with perfectly balanced performance. Frame and fork clearances allow for larger 25c tires (standard on complete bikes) for an air cushioned ride. Larger tires are also more versatile and offer faster rolling on ''real world'' rough pavement or varied terrain. The 27.2mm seatpost transmits less road shock to the rider. New for the CX Zero is the Colnago exclusive and proprietary PressFit bottom bracket! For the first time on a road bike, Colnago introduces a proprietary PressFit bottom bracket. Colnago has never been a company to ''jump on the bandwagon'' of the current trend. Colnago has been experimenting with the design for years. Like the integrated headset, Colnago saw the inherent problems with the current design and would not adapt the technology without making the necessary changes to ensure longevity, reliability and serviceability of the bottom bracket. The result is the first ever, Colnago proprietary PressFit bottom bracket! Long ago, the famous Colnago C-40 first proved that rider comfort and less fatigue combined with greater frame efficiency equalled an unmatched winning combination. The Colnago C-40 earned an unprecedented 13 podium finishes in PARIS-ROUBAIX over a 6-year span! The C-40 is the bike that made the world realize what an advanced knowledge of carbon fibre, frame design and manufacturing processes can achieve, succeeding in a race so harsh it destroyed competitors' bikes and destroyed the competition! The CX Zero takes all the knowledge and essence of this era and combines it with the most advanced, ground braking design and construction method. The CX Zero offers the greatest performance of any Colnago across the greatest range of rider ability and budget. From World Tour racers in Paris-Roubaix or Le Tour de France to the weekend warrior, the Colnago CX Zero is a winner.
