Colnago has launched the V4Rs, the final rendition of the Colnago Prototipo ridden by Tadej Pogačar through the 2022 season and, unsurprisingly, an evolution of the V3Rs.
Colnago claims the V4Rs will save up to 27.7 watts from improved aerodynamics, while the frame is also – wait for it – 57g lighter.
The Italian brand says the frame is also stiffer both when sprinting and while seated thanks to the new Real Dynamic Stiffness (RDS) design.
Finally, before we get into the detail, the sizing geometry has evolved to offer a better fit for racing-focused riders, according to Colnago.
Colnago says weight and stiffness together have a major effect on a bike’s handling, but that it isn’t always about just seeking higher stiffness figures in the key areas of a frame (head tube and bottom bracket).
For the V4Rs, Colnago has actually reduced the heat tube stiffness by between five and ten per cent (dependent on size) and maintained the bottom bracket stiffness from the V3Rs. Colnago says these changes have led to a bike that’s more solid and stable in its handling than the V3Rs.
The V4RS will be available shortly at Lafo Bikes, you can pre order your frame or full bike right now. Contact our customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
