Ernesto Colnago has reached the milestone of eighty-five years. From this immense joy and excitement comes a bike, yet another masterpiece from a lifetime of inventing and creating bicycles. It’s called Ottanta5 – a custom-made jewel built around the C60, a unique and inimitable bike frame, handmade one by one.

 

The next generation carbon frame masterpiece has been released to the world. A new standard of excellence has been set by Ernesto Colnago, leaving a benchmark standard for others to attempt to equal.  

 

The Ottanta5 is constructed of the highest quality carbon fiber, with star-shaped tubes and lugs – a proven design element tested over the years, beginning with the Master. The C60 has bigger tubes with thinner walls, and the same thing can be said about the lugs – they are larger and stiffer, designed with the same shape present on the tubes. In summary, this gives the C60 incredible stiffness and torsional rigidity without adding weight. The lightweight alloy rear dropouts, completely redesigned for the C60, also reduce weight and provide greater lateral stiffness. The frame is available in 19 sizes – an unparalleled amount.

Ottanta5 will be available in a limited edition of only 85 pieces.


The ultimate goal is to improve the bicycle: to make it more efficient, with less rider fatigue and no sacrifice in strength or reliability. The design must be striking. From a marketing standpoint, the frame's characteristics and technical advantages must stand out and not be completely hidden inside the frame. Star shaped tubes are a proven design element and have become a signature design element for Colnago frames. It is from this proven design, with the goal of increased frame efficiency without significant sacrifice in comfort or strength, with which the Colnago C60 was born.

In the C60 various cross sections of tubes have increased volume, thinner walls and drastic tube profiles. No attention to detail was spared. The rear dropouts have been completely redesigned for reduced weight and increased lateral stiffness. Even the water bottle mounts were redesigned to reduce weight while maximizing strength.

Colnago sloping gemoetry needs to be fitted by the Virtual top tube "0" in the chart below.
