Colnago has always been, since its beginning, committed to beauty.
The pursuit of beauty is what drives us to ride our bikes, to lose ourselves in the streets outside the city, to seek out new routes and new landscapes.
Beauty is also the emotion we seek in every single product we make. A bicycle, for us, is a work of art. We take care of its proportions, details, materials and construction processes, and the C68 is the epitome of this concept.
The C68 Allroad is a hymn to this constant search for beauty. A quest that never stops, not even when the asphalt ends.
The C68’s soul is based on performance but also oriented towards riding enjoyment.
Clean design, integration and modernity are at the core of the project. Unlike the road model, specific geometries have been studied for the C68 Allroad, making the bike more compact and comfortable, and with optimised tire clearance up to 35mm.
Ride longer, ride further - even when the tarmac ends
Compared to the C68 Road, the C68 Allroad has a shorter reach and a higher stack. The rider’s upper body stays in a more upright position and their arms are less stretched out. This takes some weight off the hands and puts more on the saddle. This results in an increase in comfort, especially on rough surfaces or during long rides.
The C68 Allroad has greater tire clearance than the Road model. It can accommodate wider tires, up to 35mm.
Furthermore, to improve the performance on bumpy surfaces, the shape of the down tube is slightly different from the road version, and the chainstays and the seatstays are reinforced.
The result is the same superior ride feeling as the C68 Road, but enhanced for bigger adventures: you can ride on many different surfaces, i.e. dirt roads and uneven paths.
Quality manufacturing - Proudly Made in Italy
Colnago bikes are not meant to be ordinary.
Following the tradition of the Colnago C Series, the C68 Allroad is not a monocoque, but is composed of several modular parts assembled together by the hands of our artisans.
Some of the joints are left visible, while others have been masked with a complex process of bandaging.
The result is an essentially seamless frame, with a delicate stand out of the head tube and seat cluster.
The C68 Allroad, like every C Series Colnago, is an exclusive model, dedicated to all those who are able to appreciate the fine art of crafting bicycles. A mastery that Colnago is proud to have cultivated since the early 1950s, when our bespoke bikes started to win every possible race with the most legendary champions.
