Via Nirone, Milan, 1885. The Bianchi shop opens its doors for the first time, heralding a new era in bicycle design. Fast forward four years and this fledgling frame manufacturer took its first race victory under the guidance of Gian Ferdinando Tommaselli at the Gran Prix de Paris. The celeste wheels were in motion and Bianchi was beginning to make a name for itself as one of Italy’s finest frame builders. Picking up twelve Giro d’Italia victories, three Tour de France wins and two Vuelta a Espana titles, performance is at the heart of Bianchi.

Specialissima

Not just Specialissima in name. Bianchi’s ultralight offering utilises a potent blend of advanced carbon composite materials and sophisticated manufacturing processes to result in a frame weight of just 780 grams, stunning lateral rigidity and composed handling.

Bianchi Specialissima Road Bike

Featuring Bianchi’s exclusive Countervail technology, the Specialissima is as comfortable as it is fast, thanks in no small part to the carbon monocoque hi-modulus frame. Compatible with both electronic and mechanical groupsets and hand painted in Italy, this model is a fine addition to the Reparto Corse range.

Oltre

Fusing low weight, responsiveness and aerodynamics, the Oltre is a truly versatile steed that performs across any parcours, whether mountainous or flat. Additionally, the Countervail technology infused into the framset's carbon layup works to lessen vibrations, which is especially important over the roughest road surfaces.

Bianchi Oltre XR4 Road Bike

With a CFD designed aero frame, the XR3 and XR4 minimise drag, saving 15 - 20 watts over the XR2. With no section of this frame being overlooked, Bianchi have added a specially designed handlebar and complemented it with a dedicated headset to provide the ultimate cockpit setup.

Aria

A true racing bike at an affordable price, the Bianchi Aria pairs aerodynamic tubing with handling akin to a 'do it all' road machine. As comfortable on the hills as it is on the open, flat roads, the Aria is the ideal sportive bike, which can also turn its hand to triathlon events, with its full aero carbon fibre seatpost.

 

Bianchi Aria Road Bike

The tapered 1⅛” to 1¼” headtube and full carbon fork provide pin-sharp handling, while the carbon dropouts, with metal inserts, ensure weight is kept down to 1100 grams.

Sharing the same aerodynamic characteristics found on the top of the range Oltre, the Aria does away with Countervail technology to make for a more affordable, yet still fast, offering.

Infinito

The endurance model in Bianchi's fleet, the Infinito uses a more relaxed geometry when compared to the Oltre and Specialissima, and pairs it with Countervail technology to improve the ride quality and lessen road vibrations. The long wheelbase and high headtube ensure handling is both direct and predictable and this makes it the ideal bike for big days in the saddle when comfort and composure is a top priority.

 

Bianchi Infinito CV Road Bike

A full carbon monocoque frameset keeps weight to a minimum and donates impressive pedalling reactivity, ensuring the Infinito excels when ascending the biggest mountain passes. The carbon layup is also meticulously tuned to afford maximum compliance, and this partners with an endurance themed geometry and generous tyre clearance to reduce rider fatigue over the roughest roads.

Via Nirone

For the cyclist looking for a dependable and expertly engineered road bike, the Via Nirone range delivers an engaging and inspiring ride. Hydroformed aluminium tubing ensures stiffness and high levels of reliability, while internal cable routing gives the bike a crisp, professional aesthetic.

 

Bianchi Via Nirone Road Bike

Carbon fork legs damp road vibrations and improve responsiveness and an aluminium fork steerer tube ensures high strength and relaibility. An Italian thoroughbred, Bianchi have developed the Via Nirone for those looking to enter the exciting world of road cycling.

Arcadex

Conceived for the biggest mixed-terrain adventures deep into the wilderness, the Arcadex uses its refined full carbon frameset to deliver responsive acceleration and rough surface compliance for a fast and smooth ride. With generous tyre clearance also featuring within the design, traction and control is guaranteed across the loosest gravel paths.

Bianchi Arcadex Gravel Bike

The frameset flows organinically to provide a striking, original aethetic and includes mudguard eyelets to help combat enduring expeditions in bad weather. A slightly more realxed geometry positons the rider in a comfortable and balanced posiiton, enabling efficient power transfer across demanding terrain and nimble handling when the tracks are ultra-technical.

Fausto Coppi

The History of Bianchi

With a 133 year history and an illustrious one at that, Bianchi has been the choice of some of the sport’s biggest names, including multiple grand tour winner, Fausto Coppi, and the pirate himself, Marco Pantani.

Bianchi Road Bike Mountains

Both on and off-road, Bianchi has established itself as one of the most recognisable frame manufacturers around, and one we were proud to welcome into Sigma Sports in 2018.

The celeste paint scheme may be as iconic as British Racing Green, Ferrari Red or Ford’s Model T Black but that does not mean Bianchi are stuck in the past. The designers and engineers at Bianchi are constantly developing and evolving their extensive range via new materials and design concepts to offer the cyclist an even better ride.

Riding in the mountains with Countervail Technology

Countervail Technology

Whether it be pro riders rattling over the cobbles at Paris-Roubaix or the keen gran fondo rider tackling a long day in the saddle over the mountains, the team at Bianchi have used state of the art engineering techniques to develop Countervail; ‘one technology, tuned for every need’.

Countervail is designed to reduce vibrations through the frame and after being developed and tested both in the factory and out on the road, in conjunction with Materials Sciences Corporations, the engineers have managed to reduce vibrations by 80%.

 

 

Bianchi Oltre XR4 Road Bike Mountain

Whereas traditional carbon continues to vibrate, Countervail immediately cancels vibrations ensuring you ride on in comfort. This is an exclusive technology, only found in Bianchi frames.

Bianchi applies Countervail technology to their high-performance models; the Specialissima, Oltre XR4, Oltre XR3 and Infinito. This unique fibre makeup with viscoelastic resin has also been used to great effect by NASA Aerospace Technology; a fact that's quite literally out of this world!
