C68 ROAD TI

Lightness and infinity

Handmade in Italy. The C68 Road Ti combines the nobility of titanium and the lightness of carbon, the tradition of hand-laid carbon and the innovation of 3D printing.

Main features
The C68 Road Ti is the most prestigious bike in the C68 family. The modular carbon construction is enhanced by the use of 3D-printed titanium joints for absolute coupling precision. Unrivalled riding pleasure for a bike in a class of its own.

3D-printed titanium joints

01

The C68 Road Ti is constructed of modular carbon with two 3D-printed titanium joints. These are the joint between the head tube and top tube, and the joint between the top tube and seat post. The different material properties give unique riding emotions.

Tyres up to 32 mm

02

The bicycle is evolving: more space for tyres allows us to meet the needs of all cyclists and to be compatible with the largest number of wheels and tyres on the market.

03

Larger diameter bearings have better endurance and reduce rolling friction.

Rigidity and steering precision with the new steerer tube

04

The larger diameter compared to the C64 allows greater rigidity and a better feeling of safety when riding on more technical trails.

Integrated multitool

05

Sooner or later, everyone needs a multitool to deal with any small adjustments that may be necessary during a ride (such as a flat tyre). We have integrated this tool into the top cap of the headset.

Ceramic Speed SLT headset

06

The headset bearings are treated with Ceramic Speed's SLT technology, which virtually cuts out the need for any maintenance during the life of the product

Aggressive geometries

07

The geometry of the C68 Road also makes it a suitable bike for those seeking speed and more aerodynamic positions. Reach, stack, head angle and other parameters are comparable to those of the V4Rs, our dedicated race bike.

The C68 proudly continues the tradition of the modular frame.

The frame is constructed from several carbon parts that are hand-assembled in Italy through joints and interlocks. The number of parts that complete the frame (i.e. 9) is greater than on the C68, which has 8: there is an extra joint between the top tube and head tube.

We have introduced a new process: banding.

The carbon bands are applied manually at the joint between the carbon modules, after which they are filed and polished to achieve the look of a monocoque frame with the best Colnago modular frame properties.

An art jealously guarded and handed down.

The tradition of modular carbon frames began at Colnago in the early 1990s. Colnago was the first brand in cycling history to introduce carbon frames to professional teams, winning a technically demanding race like the Paris Roubaix with the legendary C40.

3D-printed titanium allows for fully customised geometries.

The titanium joints are 3D printed. this is a technological solution that did not exist until a few years ago. 3D printing allows us to create - on request - completely customised geometries that are perfectly tailored to the most demanding customer.

Handmade in Italy
The savoir-faire of the same hands that made the bikes of the greatest champions in cycling history continues in a model that is already a classic.

01.

Tube construction

Colnago takes great care in the construction of carbon parts, from moulds to laminations, demanding that its suppliers adhere scrupulously to design requirements.

02

3D printing of titanium lugs

The lugs are created by an additive process from pure titanium powder, which is carried out in the complete absence of oxygen. A laser melts titanium particles at up to 3000 °C

03

Bonding

At Colnago's Cambiago site, tubes and joints are shaped, finished and glued to form frames of different sizes.

04

banding

Most joints are masked through the application of thin carbon bandages, resulting in a smooth tube surface.

05

Painting

Painting is done strictly by hand using an airbrush. The aim is to achieve excellent quality without making the frame too heavy.

06

Assembly

Even the final touch, the assembly of the components, is carried out strictly at our premises in Cambiago.

Blockchain technology

Register your Colnago C68 Road Ti on the Colnago Blockchain. You will enjoy all the legal benefits of having the ownership of your bicycle registered on a secure system accessible to the authorities.

In addition, you will be able to prove the authenticity of the frame at any time, resell your Colnago more easily on the secondary market, certify any maintenance carried out, and report a theft making it unsaleable on the secondary market.

Finally, you get an extension of the warranty for an additional year over the statutory two-year warranty already provided with the bike.
