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.

Not long ago we shared the 2011 Flight series from Redline, and now we share with you the 2011 Redline Proline series, a step down from the Flight models.

Just like the Flight series, the Redline 2011 Proline series features 9 bikes, which are the Proline Pro 24, Proline Pro XL, Proline Pro, Proline Expert XL, Proline Expert, Proline Junior, Proline Micro, Proline Mini, and the Proline Pitboss.

The line comes in all sizes, and for the most part similar materials and components. For example, the frames for the 2011 Proline series is made from 6061-T6 Aluminum, and the forks are Chromoly (some are butted).

Although the 2011 Proline is a step down from Redline’s Flight series, both feature some of the same components and geometry. With that said, the Proline is still a top tier bmx racing bike.
