This is Colnago's first model designed to go from smooth asphalt to light offroad.
The C68 Allroad is a dedicated version of the C68, a range of bicycles that best expresses the concept of 'handmade in Italy' and stays true to Colnago's DNA, with the concept of multiple parts.
The C68's soul is based on performance but also oriented towards riding enjoyment.
Clean design, integration and modernity are at the core of the project. Unlike the road model, specific geometries have been studied for the C68 Allroad, making the bike more compact and comfortable, and with optimised tire clearance up to 35mm. Wider seatstays and fork can accommodate tyres up to 35mm
Ride longer, ride further - even when the tarmac ends
Compared to the C68 Road, the C68 Allroad has a shorter reach and a higher stack. The rider's upper body stays in a more upright position and their arms are less stretched out. This takes some weight off the hands and puts more on the saddle. This results in an increase in comfort, especially on rough surfaces or during long rides. Furthermore, to improve the performance on bumpy surfaces, the shape of the down tube is slightly different from the road version, and the chainstays and the seatstays are reinforced. The result is the same superior ride feeling as the C68 Road, but enhanced for bigger adventures: you can ride on many different surfaces, i.e. dirt roads and uneven paths. The C68 Allroad is designed to perform on a wide variety of surfaces: asphalt, light gravel, bumpy roads, concrete, cobblestones
Stack is increased on an average (across all sizes) of +19mm and Reach is reduced of -3,5mm.
BB drop is increased up to + 4mm and is now size dependant.
The Seat tube Angle is kept the same at 74,5 in size 490.
Increased Fork Rake: the bike geometry sees +7mm on the Rake, with the same fork for all sizes. The trail is reduced compared to our std 43mm fork rake but this is balanced by bigger tires to obtain a similar value as our proven geometry.
