The world’s most advanced off-road race machine.
Colnago and Ferrari present CF12, the most advanced off-road in the world.
This new Colnago x Ferrari CF12 mountain bike is coming soon to a World Cup podium near you. Never one to jump on a bandwagon, Colnago recognizes the true merits of 27.5” wheel technology and has built around this a frame with the most technologically advanced design, materials and construction to truly realize its potential.
The CF12 carbon monocoque frame is Colnago’s latest contribution to the world of high- performance mountain bikes. New 27.5” wheels offer the perfect balance of rolling effi ciency and responsive handling.
The Italian manufacturer of high-end road-racing bicycles (founded by Ernesto Colnago in 1954 near Milano in Cambiago, Italy) has adapted this exciting new technology to arguably the world’s most advanced off-road race machine. Using the same race proven and time tested construction techniques as the now legendary Colnago M10 frame, the Colnago for Ferrari CF12 offers unparalleled efficiency and responsiveness.
In another groundbreaking move, Colnago has utilized a Shimano proprietary press-fit bottom bracket on the CF12 – creating the most laterally stiff frame for unparalleled power transfer to the rear wheel.
The CF12 has a tapered 1’ 1/2” – 1’1/8” head tube for more precise handling and precision on technical terrain.
The rear brake is a post mount 140mm disk brake – with the possibility to use a 160mm disk. It also has a 12 x 42 thru-axle rear end for the ultimate in efficient power transfer and precise handling.
