2013 Colnago C59 Italia
Colnago C59 Italia – 100% hand crafted in Italy. A true thoroughbred Italian road bike and worthy of the greatest riders in the world. Be sure to watch Team Europcar this year as Thomas Voeckler and Pierre Roland contend for the win of the 2013 Tour de France on their Colnago C59 Italias.
Beneath the finest quality paint job in the bicycle industry lies the finest carbon fiber frame offered today. Colnago produces each C59 frame in Cambiago Italy and no more than 16 can be produced on the busiest day. Each carbon component of the frame is fitted to a special alignment jig (designed inside of an oven) so each frame is perfectly aligned and no C59 is produced below exact specifications. The C59 tubing and lugs are formed out of raw carbon by the same Italian engineering firm that produces Ferrari Formula One chassis and Ducati Moto GP components.
Many new paint schemes have been introduced for the 2013 model year. Maserati Blue delivers a deep ethereal color similar to the night sky. Fiat Campovolo Grey has a sophisticated style and is especially glossy. Express your personal style and enjoy a bike that begs to be waxed! Special edition Art Decor paint schemes are available for just $300 more.
Two versions are available: The Electronico for shifting systems such as Shimano Di2 and Campagnolo EPS and the standard C59 Italia for mechanical shifting systems. Features of both frames are changed subtly to ensure that the ride quality, performance and reliability are identical. Whether one chooses electric or mechanical shifting.
Watch Thomas Voeckler win the 2012 Fleche - Brabanconne on his C59 Italia, with masterful descending in the rain!
