Product Description

GENERAL INFORMATION

The Colnago Prestige Disc is the newest face of one of the winningest cyclocross frames in history. Wout van Aert won the 2016 Cyclocross World Championships on a Prestige, as did Sven Nys in 2013. Earlier Colnagos also took the worlds in 2008 with Lars Boom and 2005 with Sven Nys and 1996 with Adrie van der Poel.

The bike was built stiff for power transfer and fast for the tight courses of the earlier era. ‘Cross has evolved, and, so, too, has the Prestige.

This latest iteration has improved on the line. It’s 200g lighter for the frame, 150g lighter for the fork. Gone is the gusset joining the seat and top tubes; they found how to get the same strength by moving carbon-fiber plies around. This lightens up the bike a bit. They also flattened the top tube on the underside and shaped it so it’s flatter at the back than at the front. The flattening on the underside is for easier shouldering, the flatter overall shape improves compliance. The top tube slopes slightly to have more seatpost showing, itself a nod to greater compliance. The seatsays are fairly slender, also for compliance. And the cantilevered chainstays deliver the necessary torsional stiffness while adding a little extra clearance for mud and muck and minimizing weight. The shaped downtube limits twisting forces at the top and bottom, while providing some vertical compliance. The straight fork legs have no wasted material and help steer precisely between rocks and hard places.

Another place where this Prestige Disc departs from the previous is tire clearance. Older iterations were built around the 33mm UCI max tire size. Knowing that a bike like this could do serious damage in gravel racing, Colnago designed the stays and fork to accommodate 38m tires and put you in a good position for both cyclocross and gravel events.

The seatpost diameter is the traditional 27.2mm size. This is a popular diameter as it seems to have found the sweet spot between low weight and compliance. The steerer is tapered to help brace the fork. The BB86 bottom bracket shell is wide and light and hides the bearings inside the frame.

Cable routing is internal looks good, keeps the frame looking clean and keeps the cables running smoothly for longer.  Framesets come with both stops and plugs, so both electronic and mechanical shifting can be used. There is a front derailleur hanger, but the shifting can also easily be set up as 1x for people who prefer the simplicity of a single chain ring.

Braking here is via rotor disc calipers. Flat mounts are used both front and rear. The front mount can be set up for either 160 or 140mm rotors. Same for the rear brake. Both the fork and the stays have 12mm thru-axles that come with:  100mm front, 142mm rear.

The frameset comes with frame, fork, headset, derailleur hangers, stops and plugs for shifting mechanisms, and a seatpost clamp.

The Colnago Prestige Disc looks beautiful standing still. It looks even better underneath you, covered with dried mud, and powering away from the competition.
