Prestige is the top-of-the-line model of Colnago cyclocross series. Developed with input from cycle-cross leg­end Sven Nys[1], the Cross Prestige is the ultimate carbon-fiber cross frame. A mono­coque front triangle makes it tough and light, while lugged seat­stays and chain­stays maximize the tire clearance. The unique support between the top tube and seat tube developed at Sven Nys’s request to increase carrying comfort when on the shoulder.

Colnago World Cup 2014

The World Cup’s double-butted 6000 series alu­minum alloy tubes are light but strong and shaped for greater stiffness. This makes for a fast, sure-handling ride that can deal with the inevitable hits that racing ing off-road in mud and snow is bound to bring. Clean lines and sim­ple tube shapes ensure plenty of mud clearance and reliability season after season.

C29 Italia

The C29 Italia is the top of the Colnago moun­tain bike range for 2014. Colnago uses eight different types of carbon-fiber for the C29 Italia frame. The internal area of the tubes is made from 1k carbon-fiber , the lugs use Nano-technology and the external area of the tube is made from 3k carbon-fiber .The C29 Italia has a tapered 1′ 1/2” – 1’1/8” head tube to give better bike handling. The rear brake is a post mount 140mm disk brake, with the possibility of using 160mm disk.

The MC27 carbon monocoque frame is Colnago’s latest contribution to the world of high-performance mountain bikes. New 27.5” wheels offer the perfect balance of rolling efficiency and responsive handling. Using the same race-proven and time-tested con­struc­tion tech­niques as the now leg­endary Colnago M10 frame, the MC27 offers unparalleled led efficiency and responsiveness.In another groundbreaking move, Colnago has utilized a Shimano proprietary press-fit bottom bracket on the MC27 – creating the most laterally stiff frame for unparalleled power transfer to the rear wheel.

The MC27 has a tapered 1′ 1/2” – 1’1/8” head tube for more precise handling and pre­ci­sion on tech­ni­cal ter­rain. The rear brake is a post mount 140mm disk brake – with the pos­si­bil­ity to use a 160mm disk. It also has a 12 x 42 thru-axle rear end for the ulti­mate in effi­cient power trans­fer and pre­cise handling.
