Some great shots of the Team Type 1 Colnago flight’s (time trial bike) in the wind-tunnel during research and development sessions.  This enables the team coach to assess valuable video and data information on the riders performance during the session. Four electric fans power can generate air flow of up to 85 mph. The Team riders rode in a 30 mph wind. This event took place in the wind tunnel in Mooresville, North Carolina.

The Colnago Flight is used with impressive results by Team Type 1 at the Tour of California and by Bbox Bouygues Telecom’s Pierrick Fédrigo in winning the 2010 Criterium International, the Flight extends Colnago’s long tradition of drag-defying frames that guarantee pure speed. Designed using advanced computational fluid dynamics techniques, the Flight is the fastest bicycle Colnago have ever produced.

Wind-tunnel tested to maximise its aerodynamic qualities, the Flight’s beta carbon monocoque frame offers a silky smooth ride, with surefire Colnago handling that provides zip through corners. Internal cable routing ensures that drag is reduced to a minimum.
