Our C68 Gravel bicycle represents a harmonious blend of modern engineering and timeless craftsmanship. The result is a frame that comes with the aesthetics of a contemporary monocoque while delivering the advantages of a modular construction. The essence of this design is unparalleled flexibility, setting it apart from all others in the realm of high-end bicycles.
The C68 Gravel isn't just a bike; it's a testament to the discerning taste of riders who seek the epitome of cycling performance. Whether your journey unfolds the White Roads of Tuscany or the most technical of Girona singletrack, this gravel machine is your steadfast companion.
Colnago's rich history is inseparable from the world of racing, where our commitment to excellence has yielded remarkable victories. Among them, the legendary Paris-Roubaix race stands out. It was the ultimate test for the C40, the inaugural carbon-lugged frame, celebrated for its durability and performance. The C40 secured its place in cycling history with five resounding victories in the grueling Hell of the North, marking the first carbon bike to conquer this race.
The C Series, dedicated to modular frame tradition, carries this legacy forward, evolving designs to seamlessly blend contemporary aesthetics with exceptional performance. Our ambition was to craft a gravel bike that pays homage to off-road terrain, effectively leveraging the enduring benefits of modular construction.
In the world of gravel cycling, precision is paramount. The C68 Gravel has different geometry than the Colnago G3-X, prioritising comfort and composure on rugged terrain. Hence, it comes with a longer reach and taller stack, offering an ergonomically superior riding experience, perfectly poised for challenging landscapes, while maintaining an overall aggressive setting.
The C68 Gravel offers an extensive tire clearance that accommodates wheel widths up to 42mm (real tire width), in line with the fast gravel bikes standards. Thanks to this flexibility, your journey, whether on a dirt road or an off-road trail, will have no boundaries.
Our commitment to excellence is evident in every detail of the C68 Gravel. It boasts enhancements in the CC.01 cockpit, specifically developed with wider flare. A wider grip guarantees more control in every riding situation and less fatigue over rough terrain. The seat post clamp, too, has been revised, with a more powerful tightening system and an improved rubber cover.
The C68 Gravel is sold in a configuration with a rigid carbon fork and the Colnago CC.01 Wide. However, the frame has been designed to offer a wide range of integrations, in particular for different handlebars and suspended fork.
Since its inception in 1995 with the iconic C40 model, the C Series has transcended mere technical innovation to become a resounding philosophy. The C Series represents a journey that unites the past with the present, coming back to the unpaved roads, with a drop bar bike specifically designed to dominate them.
The heritage of Colnago is now at the service of discerning riders who seek a bicycle that's more than just a machine; it's an embodiment of authenticity and passion. The C68 Gravel is for those who demand nothing less than true riding enjoyment.
The entire C68 range, including the Road, Allroad, and Gravel models, is a testament to the art of Italian craftsmanship. From the meticulous precision of carbon fibre tube cutting to the final assembly, our commitment to perfection is proudly realised within the borders of Italy, a nation renowned for its rich cycling heritage, unwavering passion and fine manufacturing.
The essence of each C Series bike is a fusion of tradition and innovation, an ode to the Italian dedication to the cycling world.
The tire clearance of the gravel version of the C68 is 30-42mm: larger tires for bigger adventures.
The axle to crown height is also elevated - compared to the Colnago G3-X - in order to make room for the tires capacity and the fork rake, this results in an elevated stack measurement.
The Colnago CC.01 is an integrated handlebar, made in a single piece, completely monocoque, advantageous both by saving weight and increasing stiffness. The one mounted on the C68 Gravel has been optimized, for an enhanced riding experience.
Specific geometries have been studied, to enhance the suitability for any type of terrain, even hard gravel: higher stack, longer reach and a specific carbon lamination.
