The Cinelli XCR frame – welded from a custom drawn Columbus XCR tubeset – has been designed very simply to offer riders the purest and most direct experience of the cutting edge of steel cycling technology. Released by Columbus in 2007, the XCR stainless steel tubeset represents the most important step forward in performance steel bicycle technology of the last 25 years. XCR was the world’s first – and still today is the world’s only – cold drawn seamless stainless steel tubeset. It is made from a martensitic stainless alloy whose superior mechanical characteristics (in particular its Ultimate Tensile Strength and End Strength) allow for sub 1,5 kg frame weights and superior weight/stiffness ratios than either aluminum or titanium. Additionally the structure of the XCR’s martensitic steel is able to absorb vibrations noticeably more rapidly and uniformly than any austenitic steel, resulting in subtle but uniquely “zingy” ride quality. In order to exalt this technology, Cinelli’s XCR frame features the classic Cinelli Italian stage racing geometry, an oversized 44mm headtube, proprietary winged-C dropouts, a CNC’d Titanium headbadge featuring the original Cinelli heraldic logo, and all its tubes are hand-polished to a mirror finish, emphasizing the stainless steel construction. **Handmade in Italy, turnaround time is 3 months**
In the fight for the win, every second counts. Luckily, with the Aquila, you always have time on your side. It’s probably the fastest TT bike in the world. Engineered with Countervail technology, the Aquila CV is constructed using a patented carbon material with a unique fiber architecture and viscoelastic resin. Tested in NASA Aerospace operations and available only in Bianchi CV models, the result is a material that cancels 80% of vibrations, reduces muscle fatigue, and increases control and performance.
INFINITO CV DISC The new Bianchi Infinito CV Disc carbon bike is the ultimate choice for long rides — pro races or gran fondo events. Designed to be faster and smoother, the new Infinito CV with disc brakes is built for endurance. NEW FRAME DESIGN The Infinito CV Disc, with its re-designed frame shape, has been developed with endurance-specific geometry and thru-axle rear dropouts for optimum integration with disc brakes. Longer chainstays help smooth the ride, and a taller aero headtube gives the rider a low-stress neck position, enhanced by Countervail’s vibration canceling capacity. The specific CV tuning process reduces rider’s muscle fatigue and increases control for a better overall performance, especially on bumpy roads and cobblestone sections. NEW SEATPOST The new Infinito CV Disc has been engineered to be also more aero by using a new integrated-look carbon seatpost. The bike is also compatible with Metron 5D aero handlebar for those who want a special touch to the sleek overall aesthetic of the new model. LESS FATIGUE, MORE CONTROL Like Bianchi’s first-generation model, the new Infinito CV Disc is engineered with the revolutionary Bianchi CV System, using patented Countervail carbon material, to cancel road vibrations. WHAT IS COUNTERVAIL? The key technology Countervail is a carbon composite-material system that combines patented structural carbon with viscoelastic resin. BIANCHI CV INTEGRATED VIBRATION CANCELLING SYSTEM Bianchi collaborated with Materials Sciences Corporation to develop our innovative and exclusive use of the MSC’s patented Countervail integrated vibration canceling system for cycling. Countervail is a carbon composite-material system that, with special fiber architecture, combines patented structural carbon with viscoelastic resin. Countervail cancels 80% of vibrations while increasing the stiffness and strength of our carbon frames and forks. Countervail is embedded within the entire frame of Bianchi CV high-performance road and MTB models: Specialissima, Oltre XR4, Oltre XR3, Infinito CV, Aquila CV, and Methanol CV. PROVEN IN NASA AEROSPACE OPERATIONS Traditional passive damping in frames using superficial rubber inserts and isolators are marginally effective compared to the integrated carbon Countervail system developed by Bianchi for cycling and proven in the extreme conditions of NASA aerospace operations. OPTIMIZED FRAME PERFORMANCE The specific CV tuning process reduces rider’s muscle fatigue and increases control for a better overall performance, especially on bumpy roads and cobblestone sections. FORK The Infinito CV Disc is fitted with a shallow curved blade, aero, full-carbon fork. Featuring a 1.1/8 -1.5in tapered steer tube and 12x100mm thru-axle dropouts, for steering stability and precision and braking performance. The fork weighs 390g. INTEGRATED DISC BRAKE MOUNTS The Infinito CV Disc frame and fork feature fully-integrated Flat Mount Disc brakes, delivering uniform power, increased efficiency, and precise modulation for strong predictable braking, in any weather conditions. Compatible with 140mm or 160mm rotors. Cables for brakes and drivetrain are all internally routed. ENDURANCE GEOMETRY Riding long distances requires a special focus on perfect fit. The downtube diameter on the 57-61cm frames is Infinito CV Disc is increased by 5mm to increase torsional stiffness and optimize weight. Infinito CV Disc uses an integrated-look carbon seatpost, featuring a saddle rail clamp that is adjustable for fore/aft position from +25 to -10mm. This allows riders to create the perfect seated pedaling position for maximum performance over extended hours. LARGER VOLUME TIRES When riding long distances with extended time in the saddle, larger volume tires are the answer. The Infinito CV Disc is compatible with tires up to 32mm. High-volume tires add extra grip, comfort, and control, without affecting rolling efficiency, or speed.
Oltre means "beyond," and Bianchi's Oltre XR.4 Frameset will take you beyond your wildest expectations. It boasts Bianchi’s incredible carbon technology that ensures outstanding stiffness for awe-inspiring efficiency, climbing, and cornering; compliance for vibration damping and comfort; and feathery weight for dancing up and over even the steepest grades. The tapered carbon fork corners so precisely you’ll feel like you’re on rails. This Italian masterpiece is ready to be built into your dream bike.
Power. Precision. Control. Roglic, Groenewegen, Van Aert, and Teunissen — riders who know what it takes to win at the very highest level. It takes commitment and sacrifice. It takes guts and the ability to suffer and to win when every fiber of your soul is screaming at you. As the innovation partner of Team Jumbo-Visma, we work to give them the tools they need to compete and win at the highest level in every race situation. Whether it’s Roglic battling in the mountains, Van Aert fighting to get in a breakaway, or Teunissen and Groenewegen outsprinting their rivals — all use the Oltre XR4 to win. Bianchi engineers used Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD), to refine and optimize every aspect of the Oltre XR4 frameset, to ensure the new XR4 Disc is a masterpiece of aerodynamic design. Oltre XR4 Disc frame and fork are designed to accommodate wider tires, resulting in enhanced comfort and grip. Oltre XR4's hydraulic disc brakes are impervious to adverse weather conditions. By developing the new disc-brake-equipped Oltre XR4, Bianchi allows you to ride perfect lines at the optimum speed for every single corner, rain or shine. Aero efficiency is key to the Oltre XR4 Disc, and this extends to the new Metron 5D ACR aero handlebar featuring fully-enclosed cable routing through the handlebar itself and stem for the hydraulic brake hoses and gear cables. The Metron 5D ACR bar and stem gives the Oltre XR4 a cleaner, more aero front end for added speed and efficiency.
