Windave have just announced that the new C68 Gravel from Colnago will get its first UK airing at this year’s COREbike.
The C68 is a modular frame, handcrafted in Italy. Compared with the G3-X, the C68 Gravel has a different persona, placing less emphasis on outright speed. It gives a refined blend of comfort, compliance and performance.
The production of the C68 Gravel, being part of the C Series range, is undertaken exclusively in Italy, by skilled and experienced craftsmen. Instead of having a monocoque frame moulded in one piece, it uses a modular design, with tubes and lugs sanded and glued together by hand in our Italian Factory. The end result has a refined and elegant appearance, thanks to the carbon fiber wrapping process, making every gluing point flush with the rest of the frame.
In the world of gravel cycling, precision is paramount. The C68 Gravel has different geometry than its road counterpart, the C68 Road, to achieve the perfect balance of compliance and performance, on any type of terrain. Therefore, it comes with a shorter reach and higher stack than the C68 Road, offering an optimal handling and setting, perfectly poised for challenging landscapes.
Geometry differs from the G3-X, which is a racing-oriented gravel bike, with the main purpose of improving the stability and allowing the smoothest riding experience across all surfaces.
