Ernesto Colnago was born on February 9, 1932 in Cambiago, near Milan, Italy. At age 13 he entered in world of two wheels and immediately he fall in love with bikes and cycling. In 1952 he founded Colnago and started to work as mechanic for several professional teams. His first big success as a frame builder dates back in 1960 when Luigi Arienti won gold medal at the Rome Olympic games. Colnago’s bikes still have a domination of the world’s cycling sports because Ernesto was always an innovator and pioneer of new technologies which supposedly provide more efficency or comfort.
In 2007 Ernesto Colnago introduced their new, top of line model – Colnago Extreme Power, made of double butted composite tubing and lugs. The lugs are compression molded using a process so refined that no finish work is needed on the lugs before painting. The front triangle features triple butted oversized tubing paired with longitudinal reinforcing ribs that run along the interior of the main triangle. This technology, known as 3PRS (Power Reinforce System), stiffens the frame by over 30% with negligible weight increase. The conical down tube of the Extreme Power starts with a 38mm diameter at the head tube and flares to 44mm at the bottom bracket shell. A massive 31.6mm seat tube further boosts lateral stiffness.The CNC-machined titanium bottom bracket insert is matched to a compression molded bottom bracket shell. Over-sized 17x35mm chain stays with Colnago’s ‘Bay Leaf’ chain stay design mate with the bottom bracket for unparallelled stiffness. The Carbon Extreme Power comes with the legendary Star Carbon Forks, completely made in Italy and was also one of Erik Zabel’s favourite Colnago frames!
