2016 Colnago C60
The Colnago C60 represents the spirit of Italian bike building legend, Ernesto Colnago, and the only carbon fibre Colnago model to be handcrafted exclusively in Italy. Staying true to Colnago’s core principles of craftsmanship, every C60 is constructed out of Italian manufactured composites, assembled in the town of Cambiago, and masterfully hand-painted only three hours away for a finish that is both aesthetically striking and singly unique. Disregarding profitability to uphold an enduring legacy of fiercely ingrained passion for cycling, the C60 is marked by a deeply intimate connection with the Colnago company. As such, the C60 rises above the characterless anonymity of most high performance machines, preserving its distinct personality and a truly excellent ride quality.

The technical hallmark of the Colnago C60 is the pioneering of faceted star-shaped tubes and fitted lugs. Featuring increased volume, thinner walls, and dramatically angled tube profiles, the cutting-edge tube system increases frame efficiency and deliberate handling at high speed, while retaining comfort and strength. Together with an oversized downtube, the faceted tube design translates to outstanding lateral stiffness and a safety rating almost 5 times the European impact testing standard. The frame’s tube/lug miter system enables a wide variety of sloping and traditional top tube framesets, in addition to custom fits according to rider preference. The C60’s innovative design also streamlines Colnago’s promise of in-house replacement of any damaged components.
Colnago seamlessly marries the faceted tube design with more traditional round tubes via an asymmetrically tapered seat tube fixed into a PressFit 82.5 bottom bracket, dimensioned to optimize frame rigidity and engineered to incorporate threaded high-grade aluminum cups to facilitate easy maintenance. Ribbed chainstays work in conjunction with forged, CNC, one-piece rear dropouts to reduce weight and further augment lateral stiffness.
The Colnago C60 challenges the most modern in cycling technology, and carries forth the very best of cycling tradition. More than a high performance machine, the C60 is an ageless embodiment of the values and integrity that define the Colnago name.
