Golden Colnago Gallery: The Gioiello C68

Described as an ‘artwork’, and ‘a masterpiece of craftsmanship and design’, the Colnago Gioiello is a special, limited edition build based on the C68.

There are just 50 of these gold leaf finished bikes on the planet, and all no-doubt kept under lock and key and only ridden in the most primo of conditions.

The gold leaf creates a unique texture, there’s a gilded Colnago pattern on the fork and saddle, as well as the 3D-printed bottle cage, which follows the outline of the Giro d’Italia Trophy. And checkout the 34mm ENVE wheels – they feature gold painted spokes.

The bottle cage follows the shape of the famed giro d’Italia trophy.

‘The very nature of the process, whereby the gold leaf is applied by hand, without following a pre-defined program, creates an ever-changing surface and makes each Colnago Gioiello unique,’ said a rep from the iconic Italian brand.

Want one? It could take some time as all are currently accounted for. This bike, #24 out of 50, weighs 7.76kg and features the following –

– Shimano Dura Ace R9270 di2.

– Ceramicspeed Gold 3D-printed Titanium OSPW.

– Ceramicspeed T68 Shimano bottom brackets.

Special Gold Edition ENVE SES 34 wheels.

– Special Gold Edition Pirelli PZERO Race TLR tyres 28mm.

– Special Edition Selle Italia SLR saddle.

– Carbon Ti rotors.

– KMC X12 Gold chain.
