Colnago CLD

The CLD frame has been designed and built for women cyclists. It is a carbon fiber monocoque, a design that makes it distinctly different from all the other frames in the range. The main difference between it and a classic Colnago frame is in the geometry. The CLD is tailored for women – particularly noticeable in the shorter top tube. This allows a position on the bike that’s more compact, efficient, and comfortable. The tapered head tube, however, aligns this frame with other Colnago’s in the racing range. A focus was also placed on the choice of components; shorter stems, narrower bars, and a very comfortable saddle. The CLD is available in four sizes: 40s, 43s, 46s, and 49s.

TOP TUBE

top tube

The CLD’s top tube is shorter when compared to that of a standard geometry. Why? A shorter tube allows a position that’s more balanced and very comfortable, as well as offering greater control of the bicycle. In addition, the relaxed position of the cervical column, along with the shoulders and arms, improves comfort on long journeys.

HEAD TUBE

HEAD TUBE

LD has a tapered head tube with a diameter of 1 1 /8” on top, and 1 1/4” bottom. With this solution we have increased the strength and rigidity of the frontal portion of the frame and, accordingly, the legendary Colnago ride-quality. The conical base of the steering, in fact, is better interfaced with the fork head oversized.

COMPONENTS

For this frame Colnago has arranged the use of specific components for women. Stems and bars optimize the riding position and, consequently, improve the performance. The saddle is a SI Lady X1, designed for the specific needs of women cyclists.
