The C29 Italia is the top of the Colnago mountain bike range for 2013 and is built using made to measure carbon fibre tubing.
The frame weighs just 1150g and is made using shaped Master Type II top and down tubes. The tubes have a reinforcing that runs the length of the tube to maximise rigidity. The same reinforcing runs along the rear stays.
Colnago uses eight different types of carbon fibre for the C29 Italia frame. The internal area of the tubes is made from 1k carbon fibre, the lugs use Nano-technology and the external area of the tube is made from 3k carbon fibre.
The C29 Italia has a tapered 1’ 1/2′” – 1’1/8” head tube to give better bike handling. The rear brake is a post mount 140mm disk brake, with the possibility of using 160mm disk.
This latest Colnago mountain bike is the result of decades of development and trademarked carbon lugged frame technology. Something only Colnago can deliver.
