If you yearn for an intuitive steering, fast climbing, stable descending road bike that’s matched with stunning good looks, the Oltre XR1 is the obvious choice.
The XR1 employs wind cheating tube shapes with an aero fork crown that blends into the down tube. Power is quickly transmitted to the rear wheel thanks to the XR1's oversized PF86 bottom bracket and tall chain stays. Internal cable routing keeps things neat and tidy along the frame. An adjustable mast-style seat post provides the proper amount of saddle height adjustment and allows the rider to steer through tight corners at high speed aided by his hips.
The Shimano 105 11-speed groupset makes for one of the best values available to the "privateer" racer. The mid-compact Shimano 105 crankset delivers the right range of ratios from hill climbing to top-end sprinting.
The Urban delivers road performance on a budget. A 21-speed drivetrain provides ample gearing for hilly roads, while a rear rack and 35mm tires make it ideal for commuting over rough roads and potholes.
The patented RackStand also has a built in fender, acts as a kickstand, and serves as a stand for the folded bike.
Back in 1885, the address of Eduardo Bianchi’s workshop was 7 Via Nirone.
The Via Nirone is one of the original endurance race geometry bikes that pioneered this category over a decade ago. Riders seeking a quick and comfortable day in the saddle will find it aboard the Via Nirone. It utilizes our proven K-VID (Kevlar Vibration Isolation Device) vibration damping technology in its carbon fork, a triple butted, hydroformed aluminum frame, as well as BAT (Bianchi Active Technology) to optimize the rider’s sitting and pedaling position on the bike.
Geometry shared with the Infinito allows you to steer confidently at speed, stay relaxed while riding faster and farther with more comfort. Endurance Racing bikes are performance road bikes made comfortable, not comfort-oriented road bikes.
