Colnago C60 Classic Di2 Disc Frameset (Sloping Geometry)
The Colnago C60 Classic Di2 Disc Frameset (Sloping Geometry) is a huge step in the illustrious Italian bicycle manufacturers history, taking greater reliability and performance in wet weather conditions to new heights. The frame is constructed just as other C60’s, but uses a tapered straight blade carbon disc fork and a disc specific rear end to produce greater efficiency. It’s even 140 grams lighter than the previous C59 incarnation!
The C60 follows the C59 in being a high end, race bike that is just as content to spend all day as a comfortable cruising steed, as it is in the rough and tumble of the peloton. The C59 won many plaudits for its stiffness, quality of ride and stunning looks. The C60 improves on this making a laterally stiffer, more comfortable and lighter frameset.
Colnago has spent years in development and made numerous changes from the C59. First, the headtube has been redesigned and new for the C60, they have included matching shaped lugs, steering away from the traditional Colnago round cross section tubing and instead plumping for a star design. This increases lateral stiffness and improves comfort over rough surfaces. The star design is a first for Colnago and shows they are embracing new design techniques.
The downtube is also new and oversized. This increases lateral stiffness and weighs less due to thinner tubing. Star tubing has also been used here, improving comfort and reducing road buzz.
Larger tubes continue on the seatstays, flatter and wider than ever before, reducing weight, increasing lateral stiffness and improving handling. The new design also provides a dampening effect, combining stiffness and suspension like qualities for a very comfortable ride.
The desire to provide the rider with the most comfortable ride continues on the chainstays with internally ribbed tubing providing immense lateral stiffness, yet the tapered shape, which seamlessly narrows towards the dropouts, provides a small degree of upwards flexion and dampens road buzz. This increased vertical compliance also improves handling and allows more grip to the rear wheel, especially over rough terrain.
The C60 is all about firsts for Colnago and pioneering design innovations. The seat tube uses asymmetrical rather than round tubing, making the frame stronger, lighter and more aesthetically pleasing.
Beefier bottom bracket lugs make for seamless integration of the tubes and the wider bottom bracket housing uses thinner layers of carbon, keeping weight down. This provides the perfect platform for Colnago's new Threadfit 82.5 system. Combining the reliability of a BSA system with the stiffness of a Pressfit.
Threadfit 82.5 is versatile, compatible with all versions of Pressfit 86.5 bottom brackets and is also practical, with two removable and replaceable threaded sleeves, should wear occur.
Colnago has invested numerous time and resources in developing their most advanced rear dropouts yet. CNC forged this increases strength and reduces weight.
