Colnago C68 Ti Road Frameset HTBK
Colnago are well known for their revolutionary carbon fibre road bike, the C40 was first released in the mid 1990's. Fast Forward to the all new C68 it is a representative of what Colnago stands for Carbon, Cambiago and Class. Founded in 1954 the C68 now represents "Made in Italy" tradition.
What elevates Colango road frames above others in the market is a passion backed with knowledge and experience that runs though each and every tube. Colango road bike frames are as iconic and rich in palmares. Each and every Colango bike frame is the result of Ernesto's never-ending quest for innovation.
The Colnago C68 is the pinnacle of the evolution of Colnago history, it's the lug construction at its extreme development, it's where 68 years of frame design meet the future. C68 is simply the new milestone.The all new splitted headtube is now stronger, lighter and more customisable than ever. Parts are reduced from 8 (C64) down to 6, this way they are saving weight (less bonding area) and machining/gluing time. The C68 fork has been completely redesigned, it is more stiff and resistant and weighs 40 grams less with an external rib-shape to give the rider more comfort but also to increase the ride-quality.
Full Custom in Titanium
Colnago love to offer their customers the best possible riding experience and are convinced that a perfect fit on the bike is the key. To do this, not only do they offer custom sizing on their full carbon frame, but also they are moving things forward with new technologies, with additional manufacturing. Colnago are now offering a second version of the C68, boasting 3D printed titanium head tube (upper) and seat tube/top tube cluster pieces. Thanks to this we're able to offer precise custom geometry and sizes if required.
From Lugs to Parts
The number of parts that complete the frame is the same as with the previous C series (C64). Even though from an aesthetics point of view, its lines and styling may be more similar to that of a frame manufactured in one piece. There are still some visible joints on the C68 to trace back to our root, while other joints would appear invisible due to the new streamlined design.
