2017 Bianchi Freccia Celeste
The Freccia Celeste marked Bianchi's return to premium level aluminium racing frames, completely hand-made in their Italian factory, the home of the legendary FG Lite. Bianchi they have produced the highly successful Impulso for a couple of years now, which offers a thoroughly engaging ride with an endurance geometry, whereas the Freccia Celeste is designed as an all-out performance bike using the classic Bianchi road racing geometry.
The Freccia Celeste is a thoroughbred in every way, with a ride that is both exciting and refined. With a good set of wheels in place, this is a bike that delivers pure joy...and pure class. A firm staff favourite!
Intended as a super fast bike for riders who prioritise power transfer and responsiveness over comfort and stability, the Freccia Celeste is an ideal bike for road racers or sporting riders alike.
Featuring the very highest quality triple-butted aluminium tubing, with unique cross-sections and highly accurate steering, the Freccia Celeste is super strong and hugely responsive. It also possesses the agility to duck and dive when races get close to business end and lightening fast but predictable reflexes are crucial. The classic external cable routing offers the most responsive of gear shifting - extremely fast and accurate every time you hit the shift lever.
Following their success in the past five model years we are once again offering exclusive Squadra Edition models across much of the 2017 Bianchi range that feature superb upgrades at minimal cost - such as full Shimano or Campagnolo groupsets and higher performance wheels - and we also have extensive stocks of the standard specification bikes at everyday low prices.
