The C60 is fully handmade in Italy, with great care – the same care that we’ve used over the last 60 years. The frame is made of carbon fiber, with star-shaped lugs and tubes – an iconic design element that started with the Master. The sections of the tubes have increased volume with thinner walls. The same concerns the lugs. They are larger and stiffer, designed with the same shape of the tubes. In summary: the C60 tubes and lugs provide greater stiffness and resistance to bending. The rear dropouts have also been completely redesigned, to reduce weight and achieve greater lateral stiffness. Finally, the construction technique used in the C60 offers an unprecedented range of sizes, nine sloping and five horizontal, with custom sizing also an option.
The most striking difference between the C59 and C60 is the new tube shapes and its matching shaped lugs. The main tubes are shaped in the famous star design of the Master tubes the full length of the tubes, with no round cross section where the tubes meet the lugs. This is a first for Colnago. Lateral stiffness of the entire front triangle will increase. At the same time, the impacting forces during a rough ride will be better distributed, ensure a higher impact resistance. It may look simple, but achieving the shaping of the head-tube in this way is extremely difficult. Tubes and head tube lugs must be manufactured with paramount precision and tolerance.
As a direct result of this technical improvement, the vertical wall found in the C59 was able to be eliminated, further reducing weight while adding comfort. This feature, unique to the C59, was a limiting factor in the design and manufacturing process. The full length star tube on the C60, by comparison, allows better control of the wall thickness and lamination of the entire length of the tube. This is a huge step forward regarding strength, reliability and comfort.
The heart of the new C60 is the bottom bracket. The dimensions of this masterpiece, especially when compared to that of the C59, have been created to ensure the ultimate in lateral stiffness. The star-shaped tubing inserts provide more stiffness and a better distribution of stress. This allows for significantly reduced wall thickness. This particular section of the tubing has required a considerable study of the coupling tolerances, to ensure a coupling of tube (male) and lug (female) at the highest precision and tolerances. The system of internal cable routing is now an integral part of bottom bracket junction, forming two structural ribs that add strength to this most critical area of the frame.
