Colnago Alfa Carbon

To achieve both stiffness and light weight, our alfa carbon process combines a one-piece molded front triangle with bonded chainstays and seatstays.

The carbon lay-up is tailored to each bicycle to give the correct ride qualities for its purpose. We also select the particular grade of carbon used to keep bicycles like the CLX 2.0 and Ace affordable.

For the Colnago CX-1 and Colnago CLX 2.0, the carbon lay-up has different thicknesses in the areas where most torque and stress are found – such as the bottom bracket and head tube areas – to ensure better stiffness, power transfer and handling.

Alfa carbon allows us to tune the ride in other ways too. The CX-1 and CLX 2.0 use curved seatstays to improve braking and handling under braking. The CX-1 uses rectangular oversize chainstays for maximum rigidity and precise tracking, while the CLX 2.0 adopts the classic leaf-shaped chainstay used on the EPS.

To keep alfa Colnago carbon frames light it’s necessary for the use of materials to be as efficient as possible. Carbon composites need only a minimal amount of resin to hold the fibers together. To minimise the amount of resin we use pre-impregnated carbon fiber cloth, aligned by laser and cured under very high pressure. This eliminates voids to reduce weight and increase strength.

All alfa carbon bicycles go through the same tough design and crash-testing process as our EPS and steel models. They dramatically exceed CEN standards.

What Our Customers Are Saying

“Hi Bill, I just wanted to take some time to let you know (of course you probably already know) what an amazing team you have at Bicycle Emporium. I came to pick up my bike and bike rack with a plan to hit the trail immediately after. Again, friendly, great service…Billy helped me put the bike rack on my car (it only fell off once on the way to the River – haha just kidding). My bike didn’t really fit on the rack but he new the fix – an extender bar – and wa-la, bike on the rack. I went over to hit the trail and was wondering what the ride was going to be like. In the past after I’ve picked up my bike at other shops, I’ve had a loose crank, shifting out of adjustment, and I forget what else. But my bike felt like new. I could tell a big difference in smooth shifting (and yes duh lol bent chain ring). Sooo, to sum it up, you have a great thing going on up there, a great team. Even the people that I didn’t have interaction with, were friendly with the other customers (yes, I was watching 😎 , and all your employees just appeared happy. How is it that EVERYONE in there is friendly and great customer service? Whatever it is, great job and thanks for everything. Ciao!”
