Bianchi Aria Ultegra Disc Road Bike 2018
The Bianchi Aria Disc is a high-performance road bike with the aesthetics to match. Combining an 11-speed Shimano Ultegra Groupset with an aerodynamic frame design, this versatile bike is fast enough for racing, whilst remaining compliant enough for endurance riding.
Featuring a profile shaped for optimum aerodynamic efficiency, the Aria offers a fast, engaging ride, suitable for Triathlon application. The frame, fork, seatpost, and seatclamp have been seamlessly integrated to reduce drag, while the carbon fibre construction increases stiffness and greatly reduces the overall weight. Bolt thru axles located at the front and rear add additional strength and rigidity for direct handling and even braking.
Taking advantage of Bianchi's tried and tested Race Geometry, the Aria puts the rider in performance focussed position that is perfectly suited to fast riding for extended periods of time. This, combined with the damping effect of the full carbon frame and fork ensure comfort on long-distance routes and across unpredictable terrain.
The Ultegra R8000 Groupset offers the slick, reliable performance excepted from Shimano's second-best mechanical offering, while the BR-R8070 Hydraulic Disc Brakes boast an aerodynamic profile and exceptional stopping power in variable conditions. Additionally, the 50/34T chainset and 11-28T cassette combine to provide a gear range broad enough for high-intensity efforts on the flat and tackling long, steep climbs alike.
Rolling on Fulcrum's Racing 618 Disc Brake Wheels, the bikes performance is further enhanced. Utilising a semi-deep profile, the wheelset balances aerodynamic efficiency and crosswind stability for a fast, confidence-inspiring ride in blustery conditions, ideal for tackling exposed alpine routes with ease. Completed with a pair of 28mm Vittoria Zaffiro Pro Slick Tyres, the rolling resistance is reduced while traction and comfort are increased; a testament to the Aria's versatility.
