Details

2008 is the 60th anniversary of Ferrari. To celebrate Ferrari and Colnago's 2 decade long partnership, Colnago presents the Ferrari 60th Anniversary Limited Edition model. The gorgeous, Italian-made carbon frame features triple-butted, oversized tubing paired with reinforcing ribs on the tube interior for stiffness with comfort at the same time. A CNC-machined titanium bottom bracket and Colnago's oversized chainstays deliver the brutal efficiency and speed of a red-lined Enzo. Emblazoned with the Ferrari stallion, the heritage is unmistakable. And of course, the full Campy Record gruppo adorns this rolling tribute. Plus, you get FSA's impressive Plasma bar/stem combo and the whole bike floats down the road on custom painted Lightweight carbon wheels.

Colnago 3PRS tubing is triple butted and includes internal longitudinal stiffening ribs, which run the length of the tubes (photo). Plus, the 3PRS down tube is conical for additional stiffness. Thanks to these ingenious innovations, you experience exceptional lateral rigidity for awesome power transfer and also top-notch compliance for a velvety-smooth ride.
Ernesto Colnago with Gianni Motta.
Built into every Colnago bicycle is a rich, storied tradition of innovation, quality and an unwavering attention to even the most minute detail. Ernesto Colnago started his illustrious bicycle career at the tender age of 13, as a welder's assistant in the Gloria bicycle factory. Six years later, he was racing bicycles. Colnago wanted to train better and escape the smoke of the unventilated brazing floor so he moved upstairs to assembly. Then, after breaking his leg racing, he had rims and spokes sent to his home so he could still earn a paycheck, and quickly mastered the art of wheelbuilding. To supplement his income, he started wrenching on racers' bikes in a 5 x 5 workshop and soon gained a reputation as a "precise mechanic who didn't pull any tricks on anyone." Local teams took notice, and in 1954 Colnago started building complete bicycles under his own name.

The Colnago Bicycle Company has pushed innovation forward in a way that only a deep and abiding passion can achieve. Colnago was one of the first to use carbon fiber; they pioneered the use of titanium, drilled chains and 24-spoke wheels. In fact, Colnago is among the first bicycle manufacturers in the world to hold an ISO 9001 certificate, which attests to the rigorous quality standards that Colnago has held himself, his company, and his bicycles to for over 50 years.

And, as you'd expect, Colnago has been the overwhelming choice of incomparable cycling legends throughout history. Virtually every major race has been won aboard a Colnago. And, icons such as Eddy Merckx, Giuseppe Saronni and Gianni Motta, and even modern heroes like Oscar Freire, Erik Dekker and countless others, have chosen and won on Colnago's impeccable frames.

"Sono stati 50 anni di intensa attivita e di successi... Non si e mai finito di imparare e creare per dar corpo ai sogni."

"It's been 50 years of intense work and success, but the learning and creativity to bring dreams to life is never finished."

-Ernesto Colnago
