THE POWER OF LIGHT-WEIGHT
The Bianchi Specialissima helps you fly up the climbs and dominate on the flat. The carbon disc frame is light, just 750g, so none of your climbing power is wasted when the road turns upward, but it’s also superbly-stiff providing excellent transfer of that power to the road. The Specialissima is designed for World Tour professionals but it is also your complete racing bike. The overall look might be classic but make no mistake. With enhanced climbing, improved stopping power courtesy of disc brakes and smoother aerodynamic performance it’s a pure racing machine, bearing a name that has become iconic.
A FEAST FOR THE EYES
Not content with totally changing the way it rides, we also set about transforming the way the Specialissima looks, with cleaner aerodynamic lines and fresh colourways.
CELESTE Celeste still makes an appearance for those dedicated to our enduring heritage.
ULTRA LIGHT BLACK
(80g weight-saving) We also have the ultra-light, all-black colourway created specially for the WorldTour, with a weight-saving of 80g. GREENISH BLUE Completing the lineup is a classy greenish blue option, with hallmark Italian style.
The Specialissima sits at the top of our road racing all-rounder category, delivering the same climbing panache you know and love, but with boosted aero-performance and a level of stiffness rarely seen on a bike this light. The carbon disc frame weighs just 750g and the stiffness to weight ratio is what World Tour riders really love. Bianchi CV vibration cancelling system amplifies the ride feel, erasing imperfections and enhancing control when you go downhill. For those aero improvements, we employed innovations devised for the prolific Oltre aero platform, with better integration, sharper lines and aero-shaped tubes. Details that make a massive improvement to your ride. An aggressive race machine with epic climbing power, the Specialissima harnesses the power of lightweight.

With it's classic lines and road racing pedigree, the Bianchi Impulso Pro is designed to take on gravel while leaving your home at home.
The Bianchi Impulso Pro is focussed on gravel racing, matching a fairly aggressive geometry with a conservative 37mm maximum tire clearance. While the Arcadex is pitched towards technical off-road riding, the Impulso Pro is desigend to allow the rider to test their road skills on gravel. . Bianchi says that the geometry creates a super-responsive and rigid ride reflective of the brand's racing heritage. In a world filled with dropped chainstays and massive fork crowns, the Impulso Pro stands out with a more traditional and clean silhouette.
With a claimed frame weight of 1,100 grams and a maximum tire clearance of 37mm, the Impulso Pro may put off riders more interested in a drop-bar mountain bike adventure, but for those who plan on returning home at the end of the ride, it feels just perfect.
The Impulso Pro is available in Shimano's GRX 600 build or in the Campagnolo's mind bendingly magnificent 13 speed EKAR
Both models come with Veloman 24mm deep and 21 mm wide wheelsets fitted with 37mm WTB Riddle Comp gravel tires. Velomann also provides the handlebars, stem and alloy seatpost, while Selle Italia provides the saddle.
The Impulso Pro is available in Celeste and Sage green. For more information about the Impulso Pro, contact the Bianchi experts of Lakeside Bicycles via e-Mail at Info@Lakeside-Bikes.Com or by phone at 503-699-8665.
The Bianchi Infinito XE is the perfect for Granfondo riders serious about performance and aesthetics. The geometry of the Infinito, the ultimate endurance model whose range is topped by Infinito CV, has been optimized in the WorldTour in the one-day classics, providing maximum performance with minimum stress for long distance. It also proved to be the ideal granfondo machine.

Sizes Available in 47, 50, 53, 55, 57, 59 and 61cm and with a frame weight of just 1,100 grams and the fork 420 grams, the Infinito XE helps you savour every pedal stroke.

The clean lines of the bike are maintained with all hydraulic cables routed internally and the dedicated alloy seatpost has been developed for the ultimate streamlined, integrated look. Talking of streamlined, the alloy stem and spacers have been created by Bianchi for a better head tube connection, the 1 1/8” to 1.5” head tube providing stability at speed and under braking. The characteristics of the Infinito XE are maintained across the frame sizes. The different chainstay lengths means that the bike behaves the same no matter what size you choose.
