The C-RS is the new entry-level carbon frame from Colnago. Its monocoque design was conceived in full respect of the philosophy gained through over sixty years of experience designing the most successful bikes in the world. It can boast of cutting-edge technical solutions and the latest designs. The C-RS was created to meet the demands of cyclists looking for a high quality product without compromise. Internal cable-routing, and other features, easily stack up aesthetically against higher-end products.
Monocoque carbon fiber construction, with straight blades, the C-Rs’ fork is light and durable. Colnago was the first to introduce this style of fork almost forty years ago, and now it is standard on almost all racing bikes worldwide.
Traditional, 27.2mm diameter – lighter than an oversized post, and more comfortable. An integrated seatpost clamp also adds to the frame’s remarkable aesthetic.
The latest generation of Colnago bikes offers perfect balance between performance and aesthetics. Internal cable-routing offers a modern look and exceptional performance – with a flow that creates the best connection between the levers and derailleurs.
The C-RS is a bike that will never disappoint. The geometry shows respect for historic Colnago frames – combining comfort with precision handling. The integration of the seatpost clamp is a fine detail that makes this frame soar in comparison with competing products
Bottom bracket bearings are installed directly into the frame. Thanks to this system, the bottom bracket shell is wider, and can consequently change the design of the down tube, making it wider and stiffer.
Compact seat and chainstays give the C-Rs excellent handling and acceleration – on the flats or uphill. In regards to comfort, they are wider to accommodate the use of tires up to 25mm in width.

A WINNING HISORY. BICYCLES BORN FROM PASSION, THE SAME THAT HAD ERNESTO WHEN HE STARTED IN 1952
ABOUT THE COLNAGO BRAND
Ernesto Colnago was born in Cambiago, a small rural village twenty kilometers east of Milano on February 9, 1932. Ernesto was just 13 years old, but to start work, he had to be at least 14. He changed the date on his working papers and so was hired as an assistant welder.
It was 1954 when Colnago went out on his own in a tiny little workshop, his bicycles have been used by more than 100 professional team, 2,500 professional racers, who have won more than 7,500 wins worldwide.
As the great researcher and innovator he is, Colnago created the first frameset in carbon fiber in collaboration with Ferrari Engineering in 1986. The next year, the innovative straight-blade “Precisa” was created. In 1989, two years later, the dramatic Colnago “C35” emerged, an innovative monocoque carbon fiber frame in road racing & mountain bike versions. 1994 was a hallmark year when Colnago introduced the ground-breaking “C40” carbon fiber frameset for his 40th anniversary and still a reference point today. No other frame has won as much as the Colnago C40: 5X Paris-Roubaix and many World Championships. In 2000 another remarkable model emerged from Colnago’s atelier: the limited edition CF1, created in collaboration with Ferrari that quickly became a major success. Next was the CF2 dual-suspension mountain bike in 2002. After ten years of success in every segment, Ernesto Colnago launched the “C50” in 2003.
It was the Fiftieth Anniversary of his company, a brand that has become synonymous with the best bicycles the world over, synonymous with the best products Made in Italy.
Ernesto Colnago continues to dream about and create bicycles appreciated by riders passionate about cycling all over the world. Don’t ask Colnago which of his bicycles is the best: his answer is always the same. “I’ve made a lot of bicycles, but the most beautiful is the one that is yet to come.”
