Built with a monocoque design using advanced carbon fibre, the Methanol SX is the perfect full suspension frame from which to build up your dream XC race-ready machine.


Specially enhanced with triple wall carbon tubing, asymmetrical, shock-absorbing rear stays and 12x142mm rear spacing, it brings you outstanding power transfer and a smooth ride. Plus, this version is ready for a top-end Shimano Di2 groupset, as it has internal cable routing.

Please Note: This frame does not come with a rear shock, this must be purchased separately


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 drive-side. 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 moulded together to form a bond-less monocoque laminate tube - Increased strength and stiffness to weight ratio - Improved reactivity and ride control.

SAS - Shock Absorbing Stays: Special designed rear stays with “S” shape are laminated with carbon and glass fibres. This offers enhanced absorption of the vertical shocks on the rear drop outs without weakening the lateral and torsional stiffness of the frame. Also, it provides increased power transmission and reduces vibrations
