Colnago have launched their first ever disc brake equipped road bike, the C59 Disc. Based on their popular top end C59 frameset, Colnago say the C59 Disc has been redesigned to accommodate the different loading forces that disc brakes generate on the fork and seat stays.
The C59 Disc will come with Formula-made, Colnago-branded front and rear hydraulic 140mm discs. The frame and fork will be compatible with standard brake calipers too. And in keeping with the in house branding, Colnago are fitting it with their own Artemis deep rimmed carbon wheelset, hammering home the point that this is a bike for road racing.
In announcing the new bike, Colnago said that they've "taken a bold step towards the future of road bike evolution" - recognising and no doubt influencing one of the biggest trends in the road bike market at the moment.
