Ahead of the Giro d'Italia this year, Colnago launched the TT1, an all-new time trial bike that features some seriously outside-the-box design ideas. It's currently a prototype, so it's not available to buy, but when it finally reaches the market it will replace the K.One. 

The K.One is one of the bikes that Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) used to overhaul a fast-fading Primož Roglič on La Planches des Belles Filles at the 2020 Tour de France. That time trial was a tale of two halves, with a flat opening half aboard the K.One before a quick bike change and a dart up the mountain top finish on his road bike - notably on which he'd ditched the power meter.
