Bianchi Specialissima CV Campagnolo Super Record Complete Bike at twohubs.com



Bianchi continues the Countervail® revolution with the introduction of another technological evolution to increase power transfer and ride control.

At 780gr*, Bianchi Specialissima frame changes the game in the ultralight frame category thanks to the use of MSC's patented Countervail® integrated vibration cancelling system for cycling, developed for NASA by Materials Sciences Corporation. The new Bianchi's Countervail® ultralight carbon formula is specifically tuned to smooth out the inherent nervousness of ultralight frames.

Colnago C60 Italia 60th Anniversary Complete Bike at twohubs.com



The ultimate goal is to improve the bicycle: to make it more efficient, with less rider fatigue and no sacrifice in strength or reliability. The design must be striking. From a marketing standpoint, the frame’s characteristics and technical advantages must stand out and not be completely hidden inside the frame. Star-shaped tubes are a proven design element and have become a signature design element for Colnago frames. It is from this proven design, with the goal of increased frame efficiency without significant sacrifice in comfort or strength, with which the Colnago C60 was born.

In the C60 various cross sections of tubes have increased volume, thinner walls and drastic tube profiles. No attention to detail was spared. The rear dropouts have been completely redesigned for reduced weight and increased lateral stiffness. Even the water bottle mounts were redesigned to reduce weight while maximizing strength.

Wilier Triestina Zero.7 twohubs complete bike at twohubs.com



The 2016 Zero.7 is the next evolution of the groundbreaking Zero.7 platform. We have updated the model in terms of weight, design, and function.

At first look, there is a clear reduction of the volume of tubing. We recalled the spirit and feel of our tremendously successful Cento1 platform, creating a “family feeling” or design unity between the two models.

The classically angled top tube and a fully integrated fork both nod towards the most recent evolutions of the Cento1 series.

The virtually longer head tube, a technology also integrated from the Cento1 SR, increases torsional stiffness without sacrificing fit or the legendary Wilier Triestina ride quality.

For improved aerodynamics, we have introduced an integrated fork system. This is a point most brands don’t give priority to when designing a superlight frame. With the 2016 Zero.7 we have managed to reduce both aerodynamic drag and weight.

The 2016 Zero.7 also features redesigned cable routing. For the first time, the Zero.7 platform will feature internal cable routing, with a brand new elegant cable holder on the down tube.

We've made the 2-in-1 compatibility cleaner and more intuitive, making a platform that seamlessly integrates both mechanical and electronic groups.

Sarto Lampo 650c Campagnolo Chorus Complete Bike at twohubs.com



Born from the need to satisfy the requirements of the fastest and most powerful cyclists, Lampo is the custom carbon frame by Sarto Srl, which better combines aerodynamic features with stiffness into a unique bicycle.

Through careful CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamic) analysis, every profile of the tube set that forms our Lampo has been optimized from the aerodynamic point of view.

The down tube that integrates the fork, ISOFLOW seat stays, internal cable routing, seat tube with Kamm tail aero profile are just some of the most striking aspects resulting from aerodynamic studies. In addition to these peculiar characteristics that identify Lampo, the high stiffness of the frame enhanced by the integrated oversized seat tube minimizes the energy dissipation.

The right balance between aerodynamics and stiffness makes Lampo® the ideal frame for speed, gran fondo and triathlon.

Look 989 SRAM XX1 Complete Bike at twohubs.com



Using high modulus carbon fiber enables Look to build lightweight frames while maintaining optimum stiffness: sufficient for the frame to combine excellent efficiency with comfort. The arrival of carbon in the MTB world gives new impetus to the use of rigid or semi-rigid frames since the weight savings are considerable.

The frame is of one-piece construction for greater strength and lightness. A ‘gusset’ is built into the one-piece mould under the head tube in order to enhance frame strength. This ‘gusset’ also provides fork clearance compatible with most new forks.
