The Bianchi Specialissima is the second road bike to be contructed using patented Countervail (CV) carbon from the Materials Sciences Corporation - originally designed for NASA to cancel vibrations in space craft, it also happens to be an absolutely perfect material for building high performance cycle frames.
Bianchi's aim in developing the Specialissima was to use CV to build the BEST ultralight bike in the world - not the absolute lightest, although at 780g it's close - but simply the BEST. By using CV in every part of the Specialissima frameset, Bianchi have been able to use thinner, stronger and stiffer tube sets without any of the drawbacks often associated with ultralight bikes, such as nervousness on descents, harshness or lateral flex.
The Infinito CV was the first road bike in the world to make use of Countervail as it just plain smooths out the roughest of roads, enabling riders to go for longer over any terrain without compromising control, while at the same time reducing the fatigue that comes from road vibrations. But Countervail has another property that immediately made us call for its use in a super stiff all-out race machine namely the ability to maintain smoothness and control while being built into the stiffest of structures for ultimate power transfer and theyve done it! The Specialissima delivers the perfect screamingly fast ride super light, super stiff, super smooth and above all super controlled.
The Bianchi Specialissima is a premium frameset and may need to be ordered.
This is the bike you dream about. Its Light and responsive. A Super Record equipped 55cm test bike weighed in under 6kg!
The Specialissima comes to us either as a frameset, which can then be built up into a complete bike in our workshop using components of your choice, as a complete bike as listed in the Bianchi catalogue.
