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. The CX Zero, with its stylish design, features a full carbon fibre frame and fork and features Shimano's outstanding, and new for 2014, Ultegra 11 speed groupset.
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 allowed riders of the pro peloton to maximise their efforts day-in and day-out for an entire season over varied terrain and varied road conditions. Colnago was able to optimise ride quality on the CX Zero while still offering best-ever lateral frame rigidity together with perfectly balanced performance.
Dependable shifting and braking performance
The CX Zero is equipped with Shimano's Ultegra 11 speed groupset and offers smooth, exceptional shifting and effective stopping power. Also featured is Shimano's Ultegra compact chainset displaying the 4-arm crank as per Dura Ace models. Couple this with a wide ratio rear cassette, you a broad range of gears for tacking virtually any road terrain you come across. Whether it’s steep climbs, fast descents or a busy urban commute, the CX Zero has you covered with the right gear choice.
Great looks and a high quality finish
Presented in black with subtle Colnago graphics, the CX Zero has a clean, understated appearance. The Deda finishing kit provides high quality contact points for a premium cycling experience and the Shimano RS31 wheels keep you rolling along the tarmac with ease. These come fitted with Continental Grand Sport Race tyres and keep you firmly gripped to the road ahead. A great combination that provides excellent grip, ever-lasting durability and great strength and will see you through the toughest of rides.
The Colnago CX Zero is a lovely machine that features some outstanding components and designed for the endurance rider. It's light, looks great and performs extremely well.

Ernesto Colnago was born in Cambiago, a small rural village twenty kilometers east of Milano on February 9, 1932. Ernesto was just 13 years old, but to start work, he had to be at least 14. He changed the date on his working papers and so was hired as an assistant welder. It was 1954 when Colnago went out on his own in a tiny little workshop, his bicycles have been used by more than 100 professional team, 2,500 professional racers, who have won more than 7,500 wins worldwide. Champion riders of the caliber of Fiorenzo Magni, Gastone Nencini, Eddy Merckx, Giuseppe Saronni, Gianni Motta, Gibì Baronchelli, Michele Dancelli, Gianni Bugno, Oscar Freire, Johan Museeuw, Tony Rominger, Pavel Tonkov, Yaroslaw Popovych, Erik Zabel e Alessandro Petacchi, and many others, have ridden Colnago Bicycles to victory. As the great researcher and innovator he is, Colnago created the first frameset in carbon fibre in collaboration with Ferrari Engineering in 1986. The next year, the innovative straight-blade “Precisa” was created. In 1989, two years later, the dramatic Colnago “C35” emerged, an innovative monocoque carbon fibre frame in road racing & mountain bike versions. 1994 was a hallmark year when Colnago introduced the ground-breaking “C40” carbon fibre frameset for his 40th anniversary and still a reference point today. No other frame has won as much as the Colnago C40: 5X Paris-Roubaix and many World Championships. In 2000 another remarkable model emerged from Colnago’s atelier: the limited edition CF1, created in collaboration with Ferrari that quickly became a major success. Next was the CF2 dual-suspension mountain bike in 2002. After ten years of success in every segment, Ernesto Colnago launched the “C50” in 2003. It was the Fiftieth Anniversary of his company, a brand that has become synonymous with the best bicycles the world over, synonymous with the best products Made in Italy. This new carbon fibre composite frame quickly found success in both the competition and sales arena. And for 2004, for the official anniversary of Colnago, a special collectors item bicycle was created, the “50th Anniversary”. Ernesto Colnago continues to dream about and create bicycles appreciated by riders passionate about cycling all over the world. Don’t ask Colnago which of his bicycles is the best: his answer is always the same. “I’ve made a lot of bicycles, but the most beautiful is the one that is yet to come.” For more info on Colnago please feel free to view Bike Radar's article on them.
