This is the modern interpretation of the classic Colnago bike. It has a monocoque front triangle and squared off rear chainstays so it is stiff but remains comfortable. Comes with the latest electronic shifting so you can shift gears no matter how bad the conditions are. If you like to go fast and look good, there are not other options.
The Colnago CLX 3.0 Ultegra 11 Road Bike is an outstanding road bike from the much loved Colnago brand. As always, Colnago build their frames to a very high standard and all frames feature stunning artwork and a stylish paint design which will be admired by all.
The monocoque front triangle has many new features such as internal routing of the rear brake cable, new different section C-HS1 headset system and a new fork made to work perfectly in combination with the new headset. Also, the square chainstays have been developed following the design outlook of the whole Colnago range, having a square shaped cross section to guarantee more stiffness for greater pedalling efficiency.
The CLX 3.0 comes fitted with Shimano's Ultegra 22 speed components, including the chainset - compact, and provides clean and precise shifting at the touch of a button. The changing is very quiet and extremely quick and once setup correctly will provide accurate shifting everytime. The compact chainset, with a wide range of sprockets on the cassette, gives you a larger choice of gears for speed and for climbing also. Many sportives events incorporate some nasty/steep climbs on the route so having a compact chainset makes life a little bit easier and stops you longing for a triple chainset.
The wheels are also from Mavic. Strong and fairly light, the Mavic Aksium Race will keep you moving and the Vittoria Zaffiro tyres will provide you with the grip you require.
Colnago are a well loved Italian cycling brand with many followers. The frames are stunning to look at, of high quality and also available in many sizes (8 sloping sizes). Quality and excellence are assured from Colnago. Each CLX 3.0 is fully built, tested and tuned by Cycling Express's team of qualified bike mechanics to ensure your bike arrives in perfect condition.
