Brainchild of Pietro Caucchioli, the Divo ST is the vision of a man who has ridden over half a million miles and finished atop of the Giro d' Italia podium. Pietro, with his years of experience in product development within the Italian cycling industry, knew that there was truly something missing on the menu when it came to handmade Italian exotic bicycles.
The Divo ST is a hand-made tube-to-tube constructed carbon wrapped frame. It benefits from the tuned compliance of a lugged frame while taking advantage of the stiffness, aerodynamics, and good looks you'd expect from monocoque construction. Additionally, this handmade package allows the Divo ST to tip the scales at just around 900 grams to keep it at the front of the pack during ascents. Sprints, KOMs, or Gran Fondos - the Divo ST will be brilliant.
Able to compete against the stiffest and most aerodynamic of its Italian competitors, the Divo ST delivers compliance, style, and a truly versatile geometry that make it the best all around bike we've had to offer thus far. Offered in six off-the-shelf sizes ranging from XS to XXL, the Divo ST may also be purchased in custom geometry that is tailored to your needs.

The structure of the frame is certainly refined and advanced, intended to provide a low overall weight, high rigidity, but with a better absorption to vibration. The 888 series is the world’s first SuperKing characterized by this component of the vibration damping, unique and harmonious distributed uniformly on the structure of the rear seat tube and fork

The ultimate goal is to improve the bicycle: to make it more efficient, with less rider fatigue and no sacrifice in strength or reliability. The design must be striking. From a marketing standpoint, the frame’s characteristics and technical advantages must stand out and not be completely hidden inside the frame. Star-shaped tubes are a proven design element and have become a signature design element for Colnago frames. It is from this proven design, with the goal of increased frame efficiency without significant sacrifice in comfort or strength, with which the Colnago C60 was born.
In the C60 various cross sections of tubes have increased volume, thinner walls and drastic tube profiles. No attention to detail was spared. The rear dropouts have been completely redesigned for reduced weight and increased lateral stiffness. Even the water bottle mounts were redesigned to reduce weight while maximizing strength.
