Tech Specs

FRAME SIZE: 50cm - 61 cm

SHIFTER: Shimano Ultegra 11-speed Shifter
RIMS: Fulcrum Racing 5 LG
TIRES: Wind Resistance Via The Frictionless Fan

Developed by a US aerospace company, Countervail technology dramatically reduces road vibration. Countervail incorporates viscoelastic and vibration-canceling properties directly into the carbon fiber layup process. This exclusive technology helps bikers maximize ride control, increase peak power output and rigidity, and to diminish the rider fatigue many bikers get when riding long distances. 

Rider comfort was a primary focus on the development of the Infinito CV bikes. Besides Countervail, support is also enhanced by design. With a more relaxed and slightly taller head tube and more extended chainstays, the hallmarks of Bianchi racing are not compromised to achieve their comfort and smoother ride goals.

 According to Bianchi, Infinito translates to mean "never-ending" and their purpose in designing the Infinito CV was to allow riders to enjoy a never-ending number of miles.

Frame Size

The Bianchi Infinito CV series features a carbon-fiber weave combined with elastic polymers. The frame has a massively oversized down tube that helps the bike transfer power. The measured head angle is set to 71.4°, which falls in the endurance range, and it has a seat angle of 74.4° which helps the rider sit forward.
