It has been summarized the improvements have made the Oltre XR model shown above, a full 30 grams lighter and 20% stiffer, there is a complete rundown on all of the advanced Electronic technology behind this ride as well that you can read up on at the Competitive-Cyclist link above.
Italian cycling brand Bianchi is noted as the oldest bike manufacture on the planet, they were established back in 1885. Their Oltre model has the status of absolute flagship for their iconic run in the cycling world.
The ride ultimately reaches high and literally to the sky with it’s benchmark construction and execution of design to make the ideal Gran Tour model. Partly due to the Bianchi carbon designers utilizing a proprietary blend of Nano-Tube, X-Tex, UTSS, and WMP to decisively strengthen and stiffen their most advanced composite model to date.
Bianchi have also applied BB30 technology which rapidly directs power to the wheel. The other key item is the over sized bottom bearing within the nicely-sculpted tapered head tube to put steering directly on-the-mark.
This ride is a wind cheater with internal cable routing along with several proven aerodynamic design features found around the fork and head tube, aero fork, seat post, as well as the rear wheel seat tube cut out profile.
Intuitive and super fast, you are going to be on the brakes quicker than expected as you bridge up the road to the next group… Good Luck!
