With the help of Sven Nys, former cyclo-cross world champion, Colnago has officially stepped away from the Colnago c50 Cross to bring you the Colnago Prestige Cross. The Prestige Cross, a top of the line full carbon fiber monocoque front triangle frame, is new to Colnago’s lineup for 2010. Colnago’s latest crosser comes lugged in the rear at the seat-tube and chain-stay junction, making for a more compliant rear end. By design, the Colnago Prestige Cross also offers its riders a stiff and strong ride. According to Colnago, a flat top and bottom tube, as seen on the Prestige Cross, is the most efficient method for adding strength to an all-carbon frame geared at cyclo-cross. Another unique feature that Colnago has added to its bike is a carbon bridge, designed for adding comfort when lobbing the Prestige Cross over your shoulder during transitions in a cyclocross race.
The Prestige Cross will come in a range of sizes, from 48cm through 60cm and is available now but as a frameset only- which includes frame, fork, head set, and seat post. MSRP: $3,199.
