Revolutionary Carbon Fiber Road Bike
Experience the legacy of Colnago with their latest innovation, the C68. Building upon the success of the iconic C40 released in the mid-1990s, the C68 embodies the essence of Colnago - Carbon, Cambiago, and Class. With a rich heritage dating back to 1954, the C68 proudly represents the cherished "Made in Italy" tradition.

What Sets Colnago Apart
The thing that sets Colnago road frames apart from there competition is the unwavering passion, knowledge, and experience that resonates within every tube. These frames are not just iconic; they boast an illustrious history. Each Colnago bike frame is the culmination of Ernesto's tireless pursuit of innovation.

Colnago's Evolutionary Journey

Prepare to reach new heights with the Colnago C68, the ultimate culmination of Colnago's evolutionary journey. This extraordinary road bike sets the standard for lug construction, embodying the pinnacle of excellence. With a legacy of 68 years of frame design expertise, the C68 pushes boundaries and ushers in a new era of innovation.

At the forefront of cutting-edge engineering, the C68 introduces an all-new split head tube design. This groundbreaking feature not only ensures unparalleled strength but also contributes to reduced weight and enhanced customisation possibilities. By streamlining the number of parts from 8 (C64) to 6, the C68 achieves weight savings, minimises bonding areas, and decreases machining and gluing time. Furthermore, the meticulously redesigned C68 fork boasts exceptional rigidity and increased resistance, shedding an impressive 40 grams. Its external rib shape not only elevates comfort levels but also enhances the overall ride quality.

Experience the future of cycling with the Colnago C68, where innovation meets performance and excellence is redefined.

Fork

The fork changes from the previous TFS 'D' shape with the complex internal rib and the full length bonded metal thread bolt for a much simpler, elegant and lighter round 1"1/8 tube. To run the brake housing inside we have adopted a special patented eccentric headset system, without having to use the larger cumbersome and heavy 1.5" bearing.

Headtube
The new split head tube is now stronger, lighter and more customised than ever. The new layout allows stack and reach variations, along with improved stiffness for an enhanced riding experience.

Bottom Bracket
The C68 now boosts a revised bottom bracket, with the switch from our previous TF82.5 to a more "standard" and easy to find T47. The system works the same way, with an over sized bb shell and internal bearings housed in alloy threaded cups. You can assemble your C68 with a standard BB from Sram and Campagnolo, while you can use premium products such as CeramicSpeed, Chris King and many other offerings for compatibility with Shimano 24mm axles.

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.

Please note that this bike will be partially built and shipped in a bike box. To accommodate personal bike fitting preferences, the steerer tube and brake hoses will be left uncut. We strongly recommend having a competent bicycle mechanic assemble the bike for optimal performance.
