Bianchi Road, 2017
*Countervail - Though other frame builders are desperately trying to catch up to the cutting edge technology of Countervail only Bianchi has the real deal. First to recognize the value of this new aerospace technology, Bianchi holds the exclusive rights in the cycling industry to genuine Countervail. With carefully placed modules throughout the frame, Countervail doesn't just cancel vibration - an amazingly 80% faster than a standard formulation. It also maximizes power efficiency by significantly increasing frame strength and stiffness. And with no weight penalty!
With an industry leading weight of a mere 780 grams, the Specialissma CV is the lightest Bianchi frame ever. And though it is a fact that nearly all other race bikes in this ultralight weight range suffer from instability in technical terrain and fast descents, Bianchi's Countervail technology actually reduces inherent frame 'nervousness'! With a Specialissma CV, riders descend with confidence and control that rivals an exemplary cromoly frame like a Pegoretti Marcelo. And the uphills, oh my! Available in your choice of a bright new matte celeste floro as well as flat black with celeste decals. Frame, fork, and headset .... $4999.99 Add to CART

Note on road disc brakes - Currently, the UCI does not allow brakes for licensed racing. However, the Infinito CV will likely be used primarily in non-racing events. Hence, our conclusion that the Infinito CV is likely the #1 candidate for a top end road bike with disc brakes - extremely well suited for commuters, long distance riders, and others that regularly find themselves in inclement conditions.
"In a world that values the exotic and frequently rewards the unusable, unstable or unreliable, Bianchi's Sempre framesets have always been prosaically straightforward, tractable and cost effective. Rather than relying on dramatic appearance or cutting edge materials and technology, the Sempre simply puts performance first."
Our Cycles BiKyle staff put this frame through its paces and we couldn't be more enthusiastic. The Sempre Pro is a stiff frame for outstanding acceleration and climbing yet it's remarkably comfortable for all types of riding. Made in a 1-piece monocoque design of UHM Nano carbon for very low weight and a BB-30 bottom bracket for extra efficiency. Includes oversized chainstays, ultra thin seatstays for increased plushness, and a hand masked paint job. The matching full carbon fork features a tapered 1 1/8" to 1 1/4" steerer tube for added front end control. The internal cable routing accommodates both mechanical and electronic drivetrains. Sempre, Italian for “Always”, is the perfect frameset for versatile cyclists that like to go fast while staying comfortable and secure. Steering is controlled through the tightest corners. And downhill stability, a sure sign of a superior frame, is excellent.
