C59 ITALIA

The C59 Italia is the pin­na­cle of the 2014 Colnago range. A cus­tom made 100% car­bon fibre rac­ing machine designed, built and painted in Italy. With a frame weigh­ing approx­i­mately 1000g it fea­tures an inter­nally ribbed top tube shaped sim­i­lar to the iconic Colnago Master frame. Frame effi­ciency is fur­ther increased by the use of spe­cific square sec­tion chain­stays and seatstays.
Two ver­sions are avail­able: One for elec­tronic shift­ing sys­tems such as Shimano Di2/Campagnolo EPS, and one for tra­di­tional mechan­i­cal shift­ing sys­tems. Small fea­tures on each type of frame are changed sub­tly to ensure that the ride qual­ity, per­for­mance and reli­a­bil­ity are iden­ti­cal, no mat­ter which one you choose.
Light, strong and effi­cient it is made to fit you per­fectly and is the result of decades of expe­ri­ence and knowl­edge in pro­duc­ing lugged car­bon fibre bicy­cle chas­sis. This allows the Colnago engi­neer­ing knowl­edge and vast lev­els of expe­ri­ence to be applied to every rider of a C59 Italia, ensur­ing you are rewarded with a ride that is beyond comparison.

UCI APPROVED
This frame is approved by the International Cycling Union and therefore used in all races recognized by the UCI.

PROTOTIPING-ICON


PROTOTYPING
Colnago pro­duc­tion process implies inten­sive use of pro­to­typ­ing tech­nolo­gies. Before real­is­ing the final model, we analyse spec­i­fi­ca­tions and dif­fer­ent vari­ables through sam­ples and lab tests.

FRAME DESIGN
The per­fect bicy­cle must be bal­anced. It must be made to fit you, not the other way round.

MATERIALS
Colnago was the first frame builder to see the poten­tial of car­bon fibre in the evo­lu­tion of the cycling.

TESTING
Colnago always took par­tic­u­larly care to the rider safety. Our prod­uct analy­sis lab uti­lizes the high­est stan­dards in the indus­try.

Team EUROPCAR

Team Europcar, whose army of rid­ers use Colnago bikes, has secured Harmonie Mutuelle as a co-sponsor in a two-year agree­ment. The French health insur­ance out­fit has com­mit­ted to Jean-René Bernaudeau’s Pro Continental team until the end of 2015. It’s great news for Europcar in their bid to secure WorldTour sta­tus for next sea­son. Increasing their bud­get was vital to sup­port their sub­mis­sion to the UCI. Now they can expand the size of the team and extend con­tracts of cur­rent rid­ers. Thomas Voeckler and Pierre Rolland have con­firmed they’re to con­tinue with Europcar, while 33-year-old Jimmy Engoulvent recently signed a two-year deal.
