2017 Cipollini NKTT
It’s aggressive, Spartan, technological, and created to perform at maximum speed. It’s the NKTT.
The NKTT is the UCI legal time trial/ triathlon bike. Its appeal comes from the way every design element is made with the consideration of how every part will affect the aerodynamics of the whole. And the design is a triumph: this bike slices through the wind with speed and grace and it has even gathered a following. Both Axeon Cycling and Team Peperoncino use NKTTs, Axeon Cycling for road racing, Team Peperoncino for triathlons. Built to be as aero as possible, the frame comes in four pieces: A main triangle, right chainstay, left chainstay and a yoked seatstay. The stays and the triangle are held together by the bottom bracket shell in a process called Atomlink. Together these parts make a frame that’s unstoppable.
With Atomlink the chainstays are not merely bonded to the back of the bottom bracket: they use a lock and key recipe and wrap completely around it. Then the crank spindle goes over that, and what you get is an incredibly stiff bottom bracket region.
Also helping the bike slice through the wind is the shape of the fork. It parts the air before it hits the frame, creating a path for the bike to slip through.
Like all Cipollinis, the NKTT is Italian to its core—engineered in Verona, built in Florence, hand painted in Pisa, and assembled in Padova. Never lack confidence in Cipollini.
