2017 Colnago Prestige
If you are looking to take your cyclocross racing up another notch, or just want to have one of the top cross bikes to use on your off-road adventures and winter training, then the Colnago Prestige is just about as prestigious as you can get.
This is the top of the line cross frame from Colnago, and what you will see its sponsored pros racing in the autumn. It offers a monocoque carbon fiber frame to keep things light and stiff. You won’t bust a gut heaving this lightweight beauty on your shoulder 20 times a race. The geometry offers a typically aggressive position for cross racing, so that you can definitely count on getting the sort of agile handling that will mean the difference between rounding the tight corners first or losing hard fought places. The fork has also been given a carbon monocoque treatment, keeping the front end light and responsive while the tapered head tube will ensure a solid feel.
The rear triangle has also been given a bit of extra love with the stays having been designed to help clear the mud preventing untimely blockages in heavy courses. The seatstays have been given a thin profile to help keep the ride cushioning while the beefed up chainstays will help you get the power to the ground. And by turning to a press fit bottom bracket, Colnago has been able to super-size that important intersection, as well as the down tube and seat tube, making the stiffness factor world class. They have also given it a 27.2mm seatpost which will keep the weight down and offer a minute springiness to the post, helping to absorb the roughest courses. Designed around flat mount disc brakes, the Prestige will offer ideal braking power under all conditions, which will be important whether you are facing a muddy late autumn race, or making your Prestige do double duty with a gravel gran fondo in terrible weather conditions.
Internal cable routing will help prevent mud and grime from collecting on the frame, and ensure the bike’s profile always look crisp and smart. Available in five sizes and three very attractive color options, the Colnago Prestige will be the ultimate cyclocross bike. It will ride so nicely that you will be tempted to ride it year-round.
