Everything you need to know for choosing the right bike

Italy’s Bianchi was founded way back in 1885 and, rather than relying solely on its heritage, it continues to produce some of the most technologically advanced bikes out there.

It has a large road bike lineup designed for various different types of riding, with prices from £750 right up to over £11,000, so there are options for most budgets. 

Here’s what you need to know in order to choose the right option for you.

Specialissima

The Specialissima is the lightest road bike in Bianchi’s range with a claimed frame weight of just 780g (55cm model in black finish) and a fork weight of 340g. It’s built to a race bike geometry and is one of the models that uses Countervail (CV) technology.

Countervail is a structural carbon system with a viscoelastic resin from Materials Sciences Corp that’s embedded within the frame’s carbon layup. The idea is that it cancels out road vibration to reduce muscle fatigue and save energy while improving handling and control. Countervail is exclusive to Bianchi in the cycling industry.

Here’s our story on the launch of the Specialissima. 

“The Countervail soaks up road vibration, all that little buzz that you don't really pay attention to, but once it's gone it's a marked improvement,” said road.cc’s Stu Kerton when he reviewed the Specialissima. “It means you can get on with the business in hand of getting the bike to the bottom of the hill as quickly and as easily as possible.

“The benefits are noticeable, especially towards the end of an 80-mile ride. You don't get so much fatigue in the arms and upper body”

Our review bike, built up with Shimano’s Dura-Ace components, weighed just 6.35kg yet the frame was very stiff.

“Acceleration is phenomenal,” said Stu. “Power down, the legs spin, 'snick', the chain drops a cog and the Specialissima surges forward, optimal cadence is passed, 'snick' again, and the whole process recurs. It becomes addictive and so much fun that you actually look forward to stopping so you get to do it over and over again.”

The Specialissima is one of the bikes ridden by the LottoNL-Jumbo World Tour team, and nothing raced at that level is ever cheap! It’s available in various different builds, all of them based around either Shimano Dura-Ace, Campagnolo Super Record or SRAM Red groupsets, the highest level offering from their respective brands.

Even the most affordable complete bike is going to set you back £8,300 - that’s with Dura-Ace and Fulcrum Racing Zero Nite wheels. 

Buy if: You’re after a lightweight superbike that’s fast and reactive... and you have a high disposable income!

Oltre XR1

Bianchi has three Oltre framesets in its range now: the XR1, XR3 and XR4. The XR2 has dropped out of the lineup. The XR1 is the only one not to feature Bianchi’s Countervail (CV) technology (see Specialissima, above). They’re all race bikes with aero features. The XR1 has an aero-profiled seat tube that’s cutaway around the leading edge of the rear wheel, an aero seatpost, a slim-legged fork and a fork crown that integrates into the frame.

“A fast and lively character makes Bianchi's new Oltre XR1 an appealing package for anyone seeking a fast performance bike, whether it's for racing or just enjoying a rapid ride in the countryside,” we said when we reviewed it a couple of years ago. 

It displays a highly commendable level of rigidity, even when you’re pushing hard on a big gear out of the saddle, and the handling is super-sharp.

The one note of caution regarding the ride is the lack of smoothness when riding over any road surface that isn't buttery smooth. 

“Despite the 25mm tyres, there's a lot of feedback through the contact points,” we said. “While this means you're not removed from what is happening underneath the tyres, it can feel quite aggressive at higher speed and a little nervous when descending fast on a road scarred with pot holes, cracks and sunken drain covers.”

Bianchi Oltre XR1 Veloce

Bianchi Oltre XR1 Veloce

Our complete 59cm test bike, less pedals, weighed 7.17kg with a Shimano Ultegra Di2 groupset on there. That’s pretty light. Bianchi claims a frame weight of just 895g (+/– 5%) plus 355g for the fork.

Read our review of the Bianchi Oltre XR1 here. 

The Oltre XR1s are built up with either Shimano Ultegra or Campagnolo Potenza groupsets. The most affordable model is built up with a Shimano 105 groupset and Fulcrum Racing Sport wheels and costs £2,699.99, rising to £4,499.99 for the version with a Shimano Ultegra Di2 (electronic) groupset and Fulcrum Racing Quattro wheels.

Buy if: You're after entertaining handling with plenty of speed and you want to save some money over the higher end Oltres. 

Oltre XR3

The XR3 has recently been added to the Oltre line-up and it features Countervail technology in the frame and fork (see Specialissima above). The Countervail is designed to help you remain in an aero position by cancelling vibration and thereby increasing your control, reducing muscle fatigue, and keeping you comfortable.

Bianchi Oltre XR3.jpg

You'd have to say that the Oltre XR3 does provide a smooth ride by race bike standards. As far as we can tell without taking it to the lab, the Countervail does have a positive influence on the way the bike feels, but don't expect miracles. You're going to get a little less buzz than you'd otherwise get, not a totally different ride experience. Don't expect the Countervail to do anything to soften the blow if you rattle through a pothole or hit a big bump in the road. It might dissipate vibration but it can't smooth over major irregularities.

Bianchi took the Oltre XR2 as its starting point for the XR3's design and then altered many of the tubes and features and ended up with a very different bike. Although the down tube and chainstays are the same, pretty much everything else has been tweaked or completely changed.

Bianchi says that although it doesn't match the more expensive XR4 (see below) in the wind tunnel, the XR3 still puts in an efficient performance (no comparative figures have been published).

Bianchi Oltre XR3 - riding 3.jpg

The Oltre XR3 feels super-stiff when you dish out the watts. There's little flex either through the centre or the front end of the frame. You get the feeling that your effort is getting turned efficiently into forward movement rather than flexing the various parts of the frameset around.

The fork is a full-carbon integrated design (the shape of the crown flows into that of the frame's head tube and down tube) with a tapered steerer (1 1/8in upper bearing, 1 1/2in lower bearing) and wide legs. It takes you exactly where you want to go no matter how hard you lean the bike into a corner.

Bianchi claims a frame weight of 1,110g (+/-5%, 55cm model) and a fork weight of 370g. The complete 59cm bike we reviewed, built up with a Campagnolo Potenza groupset and Fulcrum Racing 7 LG wheels, was 8.06kg (17.8lb).

Read our review of the Bianchi Oltre XR3 here. 

The cheapest Oltre XR3 full bike is £2,799.99. That one is built up with Shimano’s mid-level 105 groupset and Fulcrum Racing Sport wheels. If you have more money to spend, the top model comes with a Shimano Dura-Ace mix groupset and Fulcrum Racing Quattro wheels. That one is £4,599.99.

Buy if: You want a fast-reacting aero road bike with a high ride quality.

Oltre XR4

The XR4, which was released before the XR3, is the top-level Oltre and is the road.cc Superbike of the Year 2016-17. We had only good things to say when we reviewed it.

“The Bianchi Oltre XR4 is a lightweight race bike that puts in a superb performance. It's agile and mega-stiff with pin-sharp handling, and it's comfortable enough that you can thoroughly enjoy long rides rather than counting down the miles until it's time to get off,” we said.

Bianchi Oltre XR4 2017.jpg

Bianchi Oltre XR4 2017.jpg

It’s another of the bikes to feature Countervail technology.

“The Oltre offers a ride with a marked absence of vibration,” we said. “Everyone who has ridden this review bike has said the same thing unprompted. There's just a bit less flutter than usual coming though to the contact points. Whether that's down to the Countervail we can’t tell you for sure, but this is a super-smooth bike.”

The XR4 features an aero head tube inspired by Aquila CV time trial bike profiles and you have the option of a Vision Metron 5D combo handlebar/stem to give an integrated front end.

You get direct mount brakes, the rear one completely shielded by the wishbone seatstays, and a wedge-type seatpost clamp with the bolt tucked inside the top tube. Bianchi says that all of this reduces drag.

Read our Bianchi Oltre XR4 review here. 

Bianchi Oltre XR4 - riding 4.jpg

One area where the Oltre XR4 really scores is in its frame stiffness. There's virtually no flex through the centre of the bike, even when you get out of the saddle and sprint. It's a similar story up front where the steering is excellent, giving you the courage to slam the bike hard into corners and jump about in a group of riders knowing that you'll end up exactly where you want to be.

Raced on the world stage by the LottoNL-Jumbo team, the Oltre XR4 is never going to be cheap. The least expensive complete bike, with a Shimano Ultegra Di2 groupset and Fulcrum Racing Quattro C17 wheels, is £5,550.

Buy if: You’re after the performance of a pro-level race bike and can afford to pay for it.

Aria

The Aria is a new aero road bike featuring new technology that has trickled down from Bianchi’s Aquila time trial/ triathlon design.

“Aria delivers ultimate aerodynamic performance with expertly balanced combination of race-focused geometry and wind tunnel proven design,” says Bianchi.

Bianchi Aria launch  - 7.jpg

“To overcome wind resistance, the Aria has a precision-engineered frame and integrated fork with advanced aerodynamic shape and racing geometry.”

Bianchi says that the Aria’s design has been “heavily inspired” by its wind tunnel testing and co-operation with pro riders. 

The tapered head tube has an aero profile, for example, as does the seatpost which comes with a wedge-type clamp that’s recessed into the top tube and a 20mm offset (the distance the saddle clamp is set back from the centre of the post). 

Find out more about the Aria here. 

The seat tube is cutaway around the leading edge of the rear wheel in time honoured aero road bike fashion, and the deeply profiled down tube is cutaway around the front wheel. The seatstays are slim to reduce drag and the same goes for the fork legs. 

Bianchi claims a frame weight of 1,100g (+/-5%) for a 55cm model. That’s not ultralight compared to the brand’s Specialissima, for example, but it’s certainly not heavy for a deep-tubed aero road bike. The fork has a claimed weight of 370g.

The first Arias to become available will be in a Campagnolo Centaur build at £2,249.99.

Buy if: You’re looking for an aero road bike at a lower price point than the Oltres.

Freccia Celeste

The Freccia Celeste bikes are built around triple-butted aluminium frames. They’re quite traditional looking with straight (as opposed to tapered) head tubes, external bottom brackets and slim 27.2mm diameter seatposts. The welds are smooth (but still visible) and the cables run externally. Each model gets a full-carbon fork.

Bianchi Freccia Celeste.jpg

Bianchi Freccia Celeste.jpg

The frame is built to a racing geometry that’s quite similar to that of the Specialissima (above).

The frame weight isn’t down there with the likes of Trek’s Emonda ALR, but it’s respectable at a claimed 1,235g (55cm, +/-5%).

The Freccia Celeste is available in two different builds, one of them with a Shimano Ultegra groupset and the other with Campagnolo Potenza. They’re priced the same: £1,999.99.

Buy if: You’d like a no-nonsense aluminium road bike with a very good groupset.

Infinito CV

The Infinito CV is an endurance road bike that makes use of Bianchi’s Countervail material technology (see Specialissima above) designed to reduce muscle fatigue and increase control. It’s available in rim brake and disc brake versions, and also in a women’s build.Bianchi Infinito CV Potenza - riding 3.jpg

With a more relaxed geometry than its Oltre and Specialissima race bikes, Bianchi aims the Infinito CV at riders who like to get a move on but don't want to be in a racer's traditionally low slung position. For the equivalent frame size, the Infinito has a longer head tube, which does make you feel a bit more upright, but you can still hunker down in the drops for speed work. 

Bianchi Infinito CV Potenza.jpg

Bianchi Infinito CV Potenza.jpg

Read our review of the Infinito CV Potenza here. 

The Infinito CV is rock solid around the bottom bracket junction and at the head tube so you get plenty of efficiency here, and it’s also a very comfortable ride. 

In terms of handling, Bianchi has got the balance pretty much spot on, which makes the Infinito CV very easy to ride quickly downhill even if you aren't a confident descender. The steering has been slowed down a little compared with Bianchi's race bikes and this means a lot of the twitchiness has been taken out of it.

When Bianchi added the Countervail technology to the Infinito back in 2013 it also announced disc brake versions of the bike. The Infinito CV Disc carries the same styling cues as the non-disc Infinito CV but more carbon fibre has been added in key places, in the stays and the fork, to handle the forces associated with disc brakes. Fortunately, it offers the same exquisite balance of smoothness and stiffness.

Read our report on the Infinito CV Disc. 

Bianchi Infinito Disc.jpg

Bianchi Infinito Disc.jpg

The women’s Infinito CV Dama Bianca comes out of the same mould as the standard version but you get a women’s saddle and a handlebar with a shorter reach and drop. 

Buy if: You want a high-end endurance bike that offers both speed and comfort.

Intenso

The Intenso endurance bikes are built to the same geometries as the Infinitos (above) and share some of the same features, but one of the key differences is that they don’t have the Countervail technology. Oh, and they’re more affordable.

Bianchi Intenso 2017.jpg

Bianchi Intenso 2017.jpg

Like the Infinito, the Intenso is available in both rim brake and disc brake versions.

When we reviewed the disc brake model we said that it was a good bike for racking up the miles whatever the conditions. The riding position is performance orientated but a couple of clicks back from full-on aggressive and you get neutral, well-behaved handling.

The Infinito’s Countervail technology drives up the price so Bianchi seeks to provide comfort here through the shaping of the fork and the snaking rear triangle. Kevlar inserts are also added in those areas to provide improved shock absorption and adherence to the road.

Read our review of the Bianchi Intenso Disc here.

 Bianchi Intenso Disc 105 - riding 3.jpg

We couldn't tell you exactly what mechanisms are at work but we’ve found the Intenso Disc to be a comfortable bike. If you want something that's stable, well behaved and suitable for racking up the big miles, it has plenty to offer.

There are two women’s Dama Bianca Intensos in the range, the cheaper one coming with a mid-level Shimano 105 groupset and a £2,099.99 price tag.

Buy if: You’re looking for a comfortable, reliable endurance bike at a lower price point than the Infinito.

Intrepida

Bianchi introduced the Intrepida a couple of years ago as its entry-level carbon monocoque built to an endurance geometry.

The frame features a tapered head tube (1 1/8in to 1 1/2in), a BSA (screw-in) bottom bracket, and internal cable routing. The Intrepida fits into Bianchi’s Endurance Racing range and comes with a taller head tube and a shorter top tube than a traditional race bike, so it offers you a more relaxed riding position.

Bianchi Intrepida 2017.jpg

Bianchi Intrepida 2017.jpg

Unlike many other brands, Bianchi hasn’t specced a skinny seatpost  in order to add comfort, going with a 31.6mm diameter.

Bianchi claims a frame weight of 1,230g (54cm size, +/-5%)

The least expensive Intrepida is the £1,599.99 model built up with a Campagnolo Veloce groupset. A women’s Dama Bianca Intrepida is available with a Shimano 105 groupset for £1,799.99.

Buy if: You’re after a carbon-fibre endurance road bike at a sub-£2,000 price point.

Impulso

The 6061 aluminium alloy Impulso has been in Bianchi’s lineup for a few years now. It’s designed as an endurance bike with a ride position that’s just a touch longer and lower than that of the Infinito CV and Intenso, but there’s not much in it. The frame is hydroformed and triple butted to drop weight while maintaining strength where it’s most needed, and it comes with mounts for mudguards and a rear rack.

The Impulso is well mannered. This is a bike that goes where you tell it without any fuss. Steering is pleasingly neutral and of the point-and-shoot variety. In large part that's down to the front end of the bike being admirably stiff. Almost all of the head tube is braced by the top and down tubes and further strength is added by the flare from top to bottom. 

Bianchi Impulso.jpg

Bianchi Impulso.jpg

This is a bike that isn’t bounced of its line easily by a poor road surfaces, sudden potholes or sunken drain covers. The Impulso can cope with a sudden nasty surprise. If the guy in front doesn't have time to warn you about that rut ahead or the loose gravel on the bend, the Impulso will deal with it.

The big-boned bottom bracket doesn't mess about, providing a stable pedalling platform that combines with the chainstays featuring Bianchi Active Technology (it's all about reducing torsional flex) to get your power to the back wheel quickly with the minimum of lag between input and response.

The only rim brake model currently available is built up with a Campagnolo Veloce 10-speed groupset (the chainset is an FSA Omega MegaExo with 50/34-tooth chainrings) and is priced at £1,299.99.

The Impulso is also available in a disc brake version and, again, there’s just one model. This time it’s built up with a Shimano 105 11-speed groupset Avid BB5 brakes. It’s priced £1,499.99.

Read our Bianchi Impulso First Ride from way back in 2012. 

Buy if: You’re after an endurance road bike at a decent price and you don’t feel a longing for carbon-fibre.

Via Nirone 7

The Via Nirone 7 is made from hydroformed and triple-butted 6061 aluminium alloy tubing and has exactly the same endurance-friendly stack and reach measurements as the Impulso (above) although, with a slightly arcing top tube, the frame has quite a different look to it.

Despite being the most affordable road bike in Bianchi’s range, the Via Nirone 7 comes with Kevlar inserts in the carbon legged fork and seatstays – known as K-Vid technology – designed to filter out road vibration for a higher level of comfort and less fatigue. 

Bianchi Via Nirone 7 2017.jpg

Bianchi Via Nirone 7 2017.jpg

The cheapest of the Via Nirone 7s comes with an 8-speed Shimano Claris groupset and is priced at £749.99. A 9-speed Shimano Sora version is available in both standard and women’s Dama Bianco models for £829.99, and one with 9-speed Campagnolo Xenon components is £999.99. 

Like all of Bianchi’s endurance road bikes, the Via Nirone 7 models come with compact chainsets (with 50/34-tooth chainrings rather than standard 53/39 setups) to help take the pain out of the climbs. 

Buy if: You want a capable endurance road bike at a sub-£1,000 price.

Allroad

The Allroad is Bianchi’s adventure bike, designed to be at home both on and off road and featuring hydraulic disc brakes, wide tyre clearance and a dropper seatpost to give instant height adjustability.

Bianchi makes the frame from 6061 aluminium with a hydroformed down tube, sloping top tube, a tapered head tube and external cable routing. The fork is carbon fibre with an alloy steerer and Bianchi has stuck with conventional quick release axles rather than adopting thru-axles. When we reviewed the Allroad we found there was no detriment to frame and fork stiffness and the front end tracked sharply with no detectable brake rub.

Bianchi Allroad - riding 3.jpg

Bianchi Allroad - riding 3.jpg

While most new disc-equipped road bikes are going the flat mount route for attaching the callipers to the frame and fork, the Allroad uses the older post mount standard. There's nothing wrong with it from a functional point of view, with adjustments easy to make compared to flat mount, it just doesn't look as smart as smaller flat mount callipers.

Most adventure bikes are designed with half an eye on the commuting, touring and Audax customer, and so Bianchi has given the Allroad a full complement of rack and mudguard mounts.

Bianchi offers the Allroad in two different builds, one with a Shimano 105-based spec with hydraulic disc brakes (£1,999.99) and the other with a next-level-down Shimano Tiagra groupset and Avid BB5 mechanical disc brakes (£1,599.99).

Bianchi Allroad 2017.jpg

Bianchi Allroad 2017.jpg

They each come with a KS E-Ten seatpost that provides 100mm of height adjustment. We didn’t find it useful on a bike of this kind and it adds substantial weight, but some people will doubtless like it 

The Allroad’s geometry leans towards that of a touring bike. The steering is relaxed and neutral, not fast and whippy like a race bike, and this improves confidence on loose surfaces like gravel tracks and fast road descents. Stable and surefooted are words that best sum up the Allroad.

Check out our Bianchi Allroad review here. 

Buy if: You want a bike that offers decent handling with on and off road capability.

Volpe Disc

The Volpe Disc is an unusual bike in that it’s a steel go-anywhere machine fitted with disc brakes. It’s designed to combine the responsive handling of a road bike with plenty of durability. 

Bianchi Volpe.jpg

Bianchi Volpe.jpg

The geometry sits somewhere between that of a traditional touring bike and a cyclocross bike. You get rack/mudguard mounts at the back of the steel frame and bosses on the fork – which is also steel – for fitting a front rack too. 

The Volpe Disc is available in just one build at £1,299.99. Most of the groupset components come from Shimano’s great value 10-speed Tiagra lineup while the brakes are cable-operated Avid BB7s. A 50/34-tooth chainset matched up with an 11-32-tooth cassette gives you a wide spread of gears.

Buy if: You’re looking for a versatile steel all-road bike with the reliability of disc brakes.

L’Eroica

L’Eroica is a retro road bike that’s built around a lugged steel frame. That frame is made from double-butted Columbus Zona tubing and the fork is steel too. 

Bianchi L'Eroica.jpg

Bianchi L'Eroica.jpg

Although it’s a modern bike, Bianchi has worked hard to keep a traditional feel, sticking with features like a 1in threaded headset, down tube-mounted shifters, Dia Compe centre-pull brakes and a leather saddle from Brooks. 

The chainset (with 48/36-tooth chainrings) is cold forged aluminium while the derailleurs are from Campagnolo, specially made to look vintage right down to the old-style logos. The distinctly non-retro 10-speed cassette might not please purists but it’ll improve the ride.

L’Eroica is available in just one build at £3,199.99.

Buy if: You want a stunning vintage-looking bike with a few modern touches.

Vigorelli

The Vigorelli is quite a traditional-looking bike built around a double-butted cromo steel frame. The fork that slots in at the front is modern, though – it’s carbon legged (with an alloy steerer) and features Bianchi’s K-VID (Kevlar Vibration Isolating Device) technology to damp vibration.

Bianchi Vigorelli.jpg

Bianchi Vigorelli.jpg

The Vigorelli is available in just one build with a Shimano 105 groupset. It’s priced £1,499.99.
