The V1-R may be the first monocoque frame in Colnago's stable that's light enough to hold its own with other top-end monocoque framesets. We weighed a 54cm frame with seat collar and headset at 1,080g, which puts it squarely on the average mark of the other Italian monocoque frames you'll see in the pro peloton. In fact, losing weight is something of a theme for the V1-R. It drops a claimed 150 grams compared to its predecessor, the Colnago M10. In addition to refined tube shaping and the world's best carbon fiber, small details like carbon rear dropouts and direct-mount brakes no doubt contribute by eliminating unnecessary hardware.
