FORK

Completely redesigned, it is more stiff and resistant and weighs 40 grams less. The C68’s fork has been fully redesigned, with an external rib-shape to give the rider more comfort but also to increase the ride-quality

Frame

The 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.

Headtube

The new splitted headtube is now stronger, lighter and more customizable than ever. Parts are reduced from 8 (C64) down to 6, this way we are saving weight (less bonding area) and machining/gluing time.

Handlebars

A dedicated new Colnago CC.01 integrated handlebar will also be available with the C68. Usually integrated handlebars are built using several pieces of carbon glued together, either on the drops or on the stem. However the Colnago CC.01 is made in a single piece, completely monocoque, advantageous to both saving weight and increasing rigidity.

Dettagli.

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.

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 oversized 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.

OTHER FEATURES

The frame weight for a raw size 485 is around 925gr, just 10gr more (935gr) for the titanium version.

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.

HEADTUBE

The new split headtube is now stronger, lighter and more customizable than ever.

The new layout allows stack and reach variations, along with improved stiffness for an enhanced riding experience.

INTEGRATED MULTITOOL

Returning to a round steerer tube allows us to put a touch of "we ride too" into the bike.

Everyone needs, at some point, a multitool to face every small adjustment that may be required during an epic or not so epic ride (like a flat tire).

So we integrated that tool into the headset top cap.

Rotate and pull, that's it.

Campagnolo Bora Ultra WTO
