2016 Colnago C60 Disc
Colnago C60 Disc is an upgrade of the traditional C60 frame; featuring powerful disc brakes over traditional road caliper brakes, giving additional braking power to an already impressive frame. The only carbon fibre Colnago model to be handcrafted exclusively and completely in Italy, the C60 Disc represents the finest in proud bike craftsmanship. Strongly advocated by Ernesto Colnago himself for the excellent level of safety they bring to cycling, cutting-edge disc brake systems also introduce a new standard of braking power and control. Boasting a 140 gram weight reduction from its C59 predecessor, every C60 Disc bike is painstakingly hand-painted for a gorgeous finish according to rider preference. Sparing no expense to uphold its principle of integrity over profit, the C60 Disc takes on a critical role in the progression of Colnago’s history.

Continuing to refine the use of faceted star-shaped tubes and fitted lugs, the C60 Disc boasts greater tube volume, thinner walls, and dramatically angled profiles. The state-of-the-art tube system maximizes frame efficiency and confident handling at high speed, all the while retaining comfort and durability. Together with an oversized downtube, the star-shaped tube design produces fantastic lateral frame stiffness and a safety rating almost 5 times the European impact testing standard. The frame’s tube/lug miter system accommodates a wide variety of sloping and traditional top tube framesets, in addition to custom fits.
Just like its caliper braking C60 companion, the C60 Disc combines the faceted tube design with traditional round tubes via an asymmetrically tapered seat tube fixed into a PressFit 82.5 bottom bracket, specified to optimize frame stiffness and engineered to utilize threaded high-grade aluminum cups for easy maintenance and enduring bike vitality. Specially ribbed chainstays work together with forged, CNC, one-piece rear dropouts to provide weight advantage and to further improve lateral stiffness. Sleek cable routing options are available for interchangeable mechanical/electronic systems, as well as dedicated electronic groupsets. The C60 Disc combines the most advanced in braking technology with the paragon of Italian cycling excellence, and promises to boldly carry forward the Colnago legacy.
