2017 Cipollini BOND Disc
“The name’s BOND... CIPOLLINI BOND”… Well...CIPOLLINI BOND Disc.
Like it’s namesake it’s smooth and refined, but plenty competent under the confident facade. The Bond disc is a bicycle like no other. At first glance, the Bond looks just like any other of Mario Cipollini’s masterpieces. However, if you take the time to notice the fine craftsmanship, it really is something else, unlike no other model we have seen before.
One defining feature of the Cipollini Bond is that the right and left chain stays are constructed individually while the seat stays are constructed as one unit. Both the seatstays and the chainstays bond with the front piece monocoque triangle. In fact that is where the bike gets its name, “Bond.”
Actually the chainstays are not just bonded to the back of the bottom bracket, they completely surround it and then it the entire apparatus locks together. With the crank spindle reinforcing the whole area. What this means is the entire lower half of the bike is stiffened, making for enhanced performance. Colnago calls this process Atomlink.
And new for this year are disc brakes! Disc brakes are becoming more and more popular on road bikes, and most companies are including them on their best bikes. They are famous for their best in class stopping power, rain or shine, and their inclusion on this year’s Bond only goes to show what an amazing bike this is.
