2017 Cipollini NK1K
Every Cipollini frame is special. Handcrafted in Italy, only around 2000 frames are made each year. Cipollini is dedicated to quality, and the only way to ensure quality is to make every frame by hand, in house. It is this commitment to excellence that makes a Cipollini, a Cipollini.
The NK1K is as aerodynamic and fast as it is beautiful. This is a bike that anyone would be proud to own. Designed to be an all rounder of a bike that still has a racing pedigree, it’s more comfortable than the RB1K with a more upright neutral rider position. It also has stable geometry. The headtube is taller, at 138mm on a size medium, but it’s still comparably short compared to other bikes in this category. This bike comes with a shallower seat angle of 73.5 degrees instead of the 74.5 standard on the RB1K. The top tube is shorter as well, putting the rider in more of an upright position So with the NK1K you have the perfect mix of performance and comfort.
The NK1K is also versatile and adjustable. The handlebars have a double position, this saves you from having to add spacers and allows you to chose your position. By changing the cover cap you get to the reach dimension and it is there that you can raise the front height to a more comfortable position. And on the cover cap it’s possible to add micro-spacers in 3 different sizes. (10mm, 5mm, 3mm) The derailleur and the seat post are adjustable as well. In addition, the derailleur is fixed in three points and you can remove it. The seat post is available in two dimensions (at zero or offset-18). The NK1K is available with the new braking systems, flat mount or direct mount with double pivot.
This is a bike that is a pleasure to ride. The perfect symbiosis of performance and comfort.
