The Colnago Flight has lead Pierrick Fedrigo in winning the 2010 Criterium International, and for 2011 the Colnago Flight will take others on a winning streak.

The 2011 Colnago Flight is made for time trial, but supports those who endure in triathlon racing. The frame went under advanced computational fluid dynamic techniques to ensure speed.

Also assisting in speed for the Colnago 2011 Flight is the wind tunnel testing. This procedure tested the aerodynamics throughout the carbon monocoque frame. Drag is also minimal due to the internal cable routing.

Only colorway available is the shown red/black/white. Upon ordering, you can request a forward triathlon position, or road position for time trials.

You can ride just like Team RadioShack with the 2011 Trek Speed Concept 9.9, which is primarily built for triathletes but can be altered for time trial racing.

By default, you can purchase the Trek 2011 Speed Concept 9.9 in a “Team Radio Shack” theme, but Trek will also offer its Project One customization option.

All the 9 Series Speed Concepts will utilize UCLV, produced in Wisconsin, and feature a “cam tail” cut, which splits air flow and acts like a deeper frame. Trek also added integrated brakes in the fork and frame that rout internally for a clean look.

Just as you see the 2011 Speed Concept 9.9, the bike is not “time trial” legal, and will not pass UCI rules. For example, the cargo pouch on the back, which increases the bikes aerodynamics, will have to come off while racing TT; The handlebars are also a problem with…
