Colnago

1954 – The entrepreneurial adventure of Colnago is born. It is the meeting with Fiorenzo Magni that brings young Ernesto into the racing world. These are the years of heroic cycling, years in which Colnago travels, learns, knows and acquires a wealth of unique knowledge.

CARBON FUORISERIE 

 

2000 - A special dedication to the Ferrari’s legend comes at the beginning of the new millennium with the CF1 model, a “custom-built” with monocoque frame and carbon fork: total weight only 7 kg, created by the experience and technology of two brands symbol of Made in Italy.
