Colnago C50 Carbon (Strada)
The Colnago C50 is the
apex of the Colnago collection. After several innovative changes to
his previous carbon framesets, Ernesto Colnago created the C50.
Ernesto Colnago reshaped and modified the carbon fiber tubing taking
his all carbon fiber lugged frame to a new level. Colnago
refines the tubing so the carbon tubing is completely new and 200
grams lighter than its predecessor.
Keep in mind, the refinements of the carbon fiber material are a
result of extensive testing and development, and working closely
with Ferrari as well as other top Italian engineers and scientists.
Immediately you'll notice the new twill pattern and shorter carbon
lugs on the Colnago C50. Colnago has been working with carbon
fiber for 20 years. Any changes that he makes to his
collection is done to service a useful purpose without compromise on
While keeping the
Master profile design of the top tube and down tube, the C50
features oversized tubing similar in design to the Dream tubing.
The head lug accommodates a 1-1/8" threadless fork. The oversized
carbon fiber tubing improves the overall handling which you'll
notice immediately when cornering or going up or down the mountain.
You'll also notice how lively it rides making your long distance
journeys more enjoyable.
Another key feature of
the C50 is the HP chainstays which feature smooth edges to absorb
road vibration. The HP design improves the pedaling force
while allowing for vertical flex to absorb road shock from poor
pavement. Colnago has produced the perfect frame - stiffness
where it's needed yet flexible where you want it. The rear
anodized dropouts connect to the carbon stays with a classic
internal pivot that penetrates the tubing, and the bottom bracket
shell is constructed of titanium.
