Description

This competition-level XC-race frame provides the acceleration, responsive handling and stability required to give you the edge on race days. Also, this particular model features the wider “Boost” rear hub spacing, which provides increased rigidity and stiffness for more precise handling and better tyre clearance.

Technologies: 

Asymmetrical Rear Stays: Optimised rear stays design obtains a very compact and reactive rear triangle without sacrificing any chainline clearance. It fits different chainring combinations and it is optimised to improve power transmission on the drive side. This design also offers increased power reactivity and pedalling performance on all terrains.

ERC - Embedded Reinforcement Construction: Reinforcement carbon ribs are embedded into the main tubes' profiles. The increased torsional stiffness of the head tube, at the Bottom Bracket area and around the crank-frame interface increases structural strength and significantly reduces flex.

Ti-NET - Titanium Net Technology:

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. This construction increases strength and stiffness, makes the frame lighter and improves the reactivity, handling and ride control.

SAS - Shock Absorbing Stays: Special designed rear stays with “S” shape is laminated with carbon and glass fibres. This offers enhanced shock absorption of the vertical strikes on the rear dropouts without weakening the lateral and torsional stiffness of the frame. Also, it increases power transmission and reduces vibrations.
