It’s not enough for a bicycle to be beautiful: it also has to look beautiful.
Colnago frames are hand painted and, as a result, every one is unique. Your bicycle is painted by the same craftsmen who paint frames for the professional riders of Bbox Bouygues Telecom and Colnago – CSF Inox.
A Colnago paint finish is an intricate and beautiful job. Except for the head badge, none of the coloured areas or logos on a Colnago frame is a stick-on decal; all are the result of the painstaking skill of our paint team.
The paint process starts with masking tape and thread protectors to keep paint out of the parts of the frame where none is needed. Then, we apply a layer of special primer that helps the outer layers bond to the carbon fiber.
When the primer has been dried in an oven at 50 Celsius, the painter applies laser-cut masking decals and then adds the first layer of paint. Several more masking steps and layers of paint go to build up the eventual colour scheme.
In time, the masks are all removed to reveal the final finish. The only remaining step is to coat the whole frame in a layer of lacquer that stops the ultra-violet rays in sunlight from fading the paint and helps protect the more intricate areas from damage.
For 2010 we have introduced metallic paint options for some frames. It’s not enough for us to innovate in the technology of our frames, we want to make them more beautiful too.
