Main features
The C68 Gravel is a fast, solid and precise gravel bike that is fun to ride. The tyre clearance for tyres up to 42 mm is the best balance between speed and rideability. The modular construction and the clean, detail-oriented design make it unique.

Tyres up to 42 mm

01

It can accommodate tyres up to a nominal width of 42 mm. The choice to go no further is deliberate: the C68 Gravel is a fast, precise, snappy bike. A wider clearance would have changed its riding properties.

CC.01 Wide

02

The CC.01 Wide handlebar is specifically developed with a wider flare. A wider grip provides greater control in all driving situations and less fatigue on rough terrain.

Compatible with suspension forks

03

The C68 Gravel is specified with a rigid fork and CC.01 Wide handlebar. However, the frame is designed to offer a wide range of add-ons, in particular for different handlebars and suspension fork.

Bolder Gravel geometries

04

The longer reach and higher stack compared to other gravel bikes in the category. This offers an ergonomically superior riding experience, perfectly tuned for more challenging landscapes, while maintaining an overall aggressive approach.

3 mounting points for water bottles and bags

05

In addition to two bottle cages on the down tube and seat post, the C68 gravel bike also has two rivets on the top tube for attaching a frame bag.

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 is the same as the previous C series (C64).

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.

Greater care and precision in module production compared to a complete frame.

The smaller moulds of the individual modules allow us to work with greater care and obtain the highest quality carbon parts.

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 (Italian) suppliers adhere scrupulously to design requirements.

02

Bonding

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

03

Banding

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

04

Painting

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

05

Assembly

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