The C-RS is the new entry-level carbon frame from Colnago. Its monocoque design was conceived in full respect of the philosophy gained through over sixty years of experience designing the most successful bikes in the world. It can boast of cutting-edge technical solutions and the latest designs. The C-RS was created to meet the demands of cyclists looking for a high quality product without compromise. Internal cable-routing, and other features, easily stack up aesthetically against higher-end products.
Monocoque carbon fiber construction, with straight blades, the C-Rs’ fork is light and durable. Colnago was the first to introduce this style of fork almost forty years ago, and now it is standard on almost all racing bikes worldwide.
Traditional, 27.2mm diameter – lighter than an oversized post, and more comfortable. An integrated seatpost clamp also adds to the frame’s remarkable aesthetic.
Bottom bracket bearings are installed directly into the frame. Thanks to this system, the bottom bracket shell is wider, and can consequently change the design of the down tube – making it wider and stiffer. It also adds to ease of maintenance
Compact seat and chainstays give the C-Rs excellent handling and acceleration – on the flats or uphill. In regards to comfort, they are wider to accommodate the use of tires up to 25mm in width.
Internal Cable Routing
The latest generation of Colnago bikes offers perfect balance between performance and aesthetics. Internal cable-routing offers a modern look and exceptional performance – with a flow that creates the best connection between the levers and derailleurs.
The C-RS was designed in order to create a bike that will never disappoint. The geometry shows respect for historic Colnago frames – combining signature comfort with precision handling. The integration of the seatpost clamp is a fine detail that makes this frame soar in comparison with competing products
