Bianchi Oltre XR4 Disc Super Record 12sp 2019 Road Bike

NOW € 10,499.00

Bianchi

The Oltre is blessed with what Bianchi calls ‘Countervail’, a proprietary carbon fibre designed to dampen vibrations.

As well as viscoelastic ‘polymeric materials’ in the layup, the carbon fibre tows (the bundles of fibres that make up the weave) are arranged in specific orientations that it’s claimed better dissipate vibrations to the viscoelastic component, but without sacrificing stiffness.

 Bianchi XR4 brings the aero stable up to scratch, with larger profile tubes for greater aero gain, while also integrating Countervail comfort-improving technology to dial out excess feedback from the road.

 

In fact, we know from Bianchi’s road product manager, Angelo Lecchi, that Bianchi have set out not to necessarily create the stiffest or fastest bike, but one which“the complete package".

Countervail integration certainly hints at this, but while it has a slightly softer edge compared to its predecessor, it can’t fool us – this is a rip-roaring speed machine, make no mistake.

It even incorporates a fork design borrowed from the Aquila CV time trial bike, which bows outwards to allow smooth airflow to pass through the gap between the wheelset and the forks themselves. The slender, hourglass headtube also cuts a bit of Aquila-esque shaping – handy considering both play a key role in guiding the air optimally around the frame. No longer is the aero game about making a bike as narrow as possible – now it’s all about sympathetic air manipulation, giving it the path of least resistance.

This is also achieved through details like the striking Vision Metron 5D integrated bar-stem setup, and the very smooth wedge-style integrated seatpost clamp - both serve to give the bike very clean lines while minimising disruption of the air. However, it’s nothing without a stiff platform on which to transfer your power.

In this respect, the XR4 has an oversized bottom bracket for super-stiff responses after each pedal stroke, and with flared stays designed to lap up any potential wastage along the length of the drivetrain, claims of a 20-watt efficiency improvement over the XR2 aren’t likely to be exaggerated.

On top of that, Bianchi have kept the frame weight competitively low at a claimed 980g - again making the ‘complete’ tag ring true. Sure, it’s not as light as an out-and-out climber’s bike, but the Oltre XR4 doesn’t hold back when the road heads uphill.
