Colnago Extreme Power Frameset

The Colnago EXtreme Power goes beyond the status quo 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.

3PRS consists of 2 internal reinforcing ribs that run the length of each tube and 2 additional ribs at the ends. These ribs are butted to match the tubes. The conical down tube of the Colnago 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. Oversized 17x35mm chain stays with Colnago’s Leaf Chain Stay design mate with the bottom bracket for unparalleled stiffness. Colnago’s B-Stay completes the platform to provide the legendary ride of every Colnago. To enhance the already amazing ride of the Colnago Extreme Power, for 2008 all Extreme Powers will include the new Colnago C75 Fork which is lighter then its big brother the Colnago Star fork.
