DISC BRAKES FOR ROAD BIKES

Ernesto Colnago leaves his mark in the history of cycling

 

 

Hydraulic disc brakes were not allowed in UCI sanctioned road races. Not until now. Teams would be allowed to use them for races in 2015 and 2016 awaiting a final across-the-board approval. With this amendment to the race rule, Colnago is happy to rekindle some claims for credit. Here's how it all links up.

 

 

DISC BRAKES IN UCI ROAD RACE

Bicycles with disc brakes can now be used in road racing – that’s the news. They’ve been given the green light by the UCI. In two races, between August and September 2015, teams will have the opportunity to use disc brakes. The experiment will continue in 2016, in all the events on the UCI calendar. If at the end of that period of time the UCI gives the go-ahead, disc brakes on road racing bikes will be introduced officially in the 2017 World Tour. 

 

 

COLNAGO LEADS MANY INNOVATIVE IDEAS IN ROAD RACING

Ernesto Colnago is very happy, because he was the first to introduce to the market a racing bike with a hydraulic disc braking system. It debuted in 2012, at the Taipei show: "after three years, finally, what I have created has become a reality." The first fork with straight blades, the first carbon fiber frame, introduced twenty years ago, and now disc brakes on road bikes – once again, Ernesto Colnago is the first to promote a new technology in the world of cycling!
