The Colnago World Cup is a budget-minded disc-brake cross bike that will suit the entry and mid-level racer. Many fellow cyclists may do a double take on your World Cup because its striking cosmetics are almost exactly the same as Sven Nys's Colnago Prestige ridden to numerous victories and a 2013 world championship title.
The World Cup's double-butted 6000 series aluminum alloy tubes are light but strong and shaped for greater stiffness. This makes for a fast, sure-handling ride that can deal with the inevitable hits that racing off-road in mud and snow is bound to bring. Clean lines and simple tube shapes ensure plenty of mud clearance and reliability season after season.
All Colnago frames undergo thorough impact tests and fatigue tests, following both the international homologation protocol and Colnago's internal security protocol. Every frame must pass the homologation test in every size and in every specific setup before going in production or before every test on the road.
Cyclocross bikes are not just for 'cross racing. They are also perfect for dirt roads, bike paths, off-season commuting or any time you need a little more ruggedness than a regular road bike can offer.
