Bianchi Methanol 27 SX Frame

This 650b version of the Methanol SX boasts the same construction and technologies as seen on Bianchis 29 SX, but its specifically designed for the 27.5 wheel size. Ideal for those who prefer a shorter wheelbase for snappier handling, this triple wall full monocoque carbon fibre frame is the ideal base from which to build up a race-winning XC ride. Plus, with its asymmetrical, shock absorbing rear stays and fast XC-specific geometry, youll enjoy both lightning quick acceleration, smooth control and precise handling.

Technologies:

  • Asymmetrical Rear Stays: Optimized rear stays design to obtain a very compact and reactive rear triangle without sacrificing the chainline clearance. It fits different chainrings combinations and it is optimized to improve power transmission on the driveside. This design also offers increased power reactivity and pedalling performance
  • ERC - Embedded Reinforcement Construction: Reinforcement carbon ribs are embedded into the main tubes profiles. The increased torsional stiffness of the head tube and the Bottom Bracket area and the crank-frame interface becomes stronger
  • TWT - Triple Wall Tube: TWT construction allows Bianchi to lay-up the composite material plies to form 3 thin walls which are then molded together to form a bond-less monocoque laminate tube - Increased strength and stiffness to weight ratio - Improved reactivity and ride control
  • SAS - Shock Assorbing Stays: Special designed rear stays with S shape are laminated with carbon and glass fibers. This offers enhanced absorption of the vertical shocks on the rear drop outs without weakening the lateral and torsional stiffness of the frame. Alsom increased power transmission and reduced vibrations
