The ‘C’ series is the jewel in Colnago’s crown. By tradition handmade in Italy, simultaneously artisan and hi-tech, the launch of a new lugged-carbon Colnago C64 has become one of the most eagerly anticipated events in the cycling world.

The new Colnago C64 – ‘C’ for carbon and ‘64’ for the number of years since Ernesto Colnago founded his business in Cambiago, Italy in 1954 – traces its heritage directly back to the C40, which was in 1995 the first carbon bike to win Paris-Roubaix, marking the end of the road for steel and aluminium frames.
