Since the release of the renowned C40 in the 1980s, Colnago has been meticulously redefining what it means to build a bike with carbon fiber. Colnago C60 Road Frameset is next step in what has been a decades long process. The C60 combines the power you'll need for hard kicks and uphill sprints with the sure handling and plush ride of an endurance frame. The C60 uses nine different types of carbon fiber sourced from Toray's Japanese factory, which produces the most consistent carbon in the world. It's the same stuff that Boeing uses for its airplanes. For the C60, the carbon has been laid out with different moduli at different parts of the frame to create the optimal combination of stiffness and comfort. Colnago has always been known for its unrivaled frame design, often inspiring imitations across the industry. The C60 features a shorter wheelbase and lower stack than the V1 R, and not to be overshadowed by its plush feel and precise handling, the C60 transfers power as well as any frame we've had the pleasure of riding. This power transfer is largely due to the enormous down tube, which is ten millimeters larger than the C60's predecessor the C59. The increased diameter allows Colnago to use less material without sacrificing strength. The result is a lighter, more efficient and durable construction. To reduce flex, Colnago has used its signature fluting design across the length of the down tube and at other key points of power transfer in the frame. Colnago's uses a tube and lug construction for the C60 like all models in the C series, which allows for additional stiffness, plushness, fit options and improves structural integrity. The junctures at the head tube and bottom bracket are built up to accommodate the large down tube, which reinforces the frame where it's needed most. These lugged joints ensure stiffness under the most demanding efforts. The beneficial tube shape also extends through the C60's joints, featuring the same clover shaped cross se...
