We gave the Colnago C60 of UAE Team Emirates rider Federico Zurlo the once-over, and it’s every bit as nice as you’d expect.

Colnago bikes are famous for their lugged construction, and the red and black paint job used here does an excellent job of emphasising it.

The down tube has a beautiful lacquered carbon look, while the red is bold and striking.

The Campagnolo Super Record EPS groupset is perfect for the Italian frame, which is then matched to a pair of Campagnolo Bora wheels, 35mm deep on the front and 50mm deep on the rear.

The wheels look especially stylish shod with Vittoria Corsa Evo tubular tyres with tan sidewalls.

Colnago’s famous lugged construction

Federico Zurlo is spinning a 53/39 chainset, equipped with a Power2max power meter, and the finishing kit is looked after by Deda, which provides the bars and stem, while Selle Italia supplies the saddle.
