Product Description

GENERAL INFORMATION

If you’re looking at the Prestige Disc next to the Prestige GRV, you’ll have a hard time figuring out what’s different. They share molds, so the frame and fork are identical in terms of geometry and shaping. The big difference is the GRV is only available as a complete bike.

The GRV, while it has serious cyclocross chops, comes built up for gravel riding and racing. That’s why you’ll find the smoother treads and bigger gears. All the same, you can swap in some aggressive knobbies and the bike will be pretty much ‘cross ready.

This is very much an improvement over the Prestige bike that won two world championships. They removed the weighty gusset joining the seat and top tubes. 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 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. 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. If you decide to upgrade to electronic shifting in the future, it’s easy to find plugs to fill in the openings for cable housing, and the battery hides in the seatpost.

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 Colnago Prestige GRV gives you an ideal setup for gravel wanders and competitions, and provides an easy entrée into cyclocross as well.
