The Colnago CLX 2.0 road bike, a bike for riders who appreciate a carbon road bike but not the price it’s often associated with, is an Italian masterpiece made possible through extensive research and development. The CLX 2.0 frame has a monocoque front triangle where the rear triangle is lugged. Towards the rear of the frame, lugged and bonded seat and chainstays were implemented to increase the frame’s overall strength. To make for a stiffer ride, the top and down tube host ribs. The seatstay on Colnago’s CLX 2.0 features a curvature, which helps with control during a sudden stop. When compared to the CLX, which made its debut several years ago, the Colnago CLX 2.0 is lighter, stiffer, and a safer ride. Colnago is offering the CLX 2.0 with a Shimano Ultegra option for $3,699 or a Campagnolo Athena/Chorus for $4,059.
