Aria e-Road aero carbon bike, engineered with Bianchi’s Inner Power Drive system, is the perfect solution to the demands of genuine road riders all over the World: to have the look and feel of traditional, pure high-performance, race-bred road riding, with powerful electrical assistance in the background – only when needed.
IPD – Inner Power Drive System:
This next step in the progression of the e-bike market has been made possible through Bianchi’s specifically developed Inner Power Drive System. This has been created with the Aria at the forefront from the very beginning, and it’s a match made in heaven.
The system uses Ebikemotion’s powerful X35 V.2 pedal assist technology, and at 3.5kg for the entire system (rear hub motor, 250W battery, iWOC One and all wiring) this is the smallest and lightest full-power pedal assist motor that has ever been created. It is simply the ultimate in e-bike motors on the market.
It is the perfect solution for riders with a desire to take on long, demanding rides selecting the extra power and speed of a trained professional only when it is needed. This extra power significantly adds to, but never overshadows the human powered endeavour and sensation of road riding. It simply gives the feeling that you have more power in your legs.
SLEEK AERO LOOK
This bike boasts a fully integrated and minimalist electric motor and battery. It not only provides a sleek, stylish and low profile aero look but can also be ridden without electrical power assistance with zero interference. The motor creates no drag to the power transition, making the Aria e-Road the true road cyclist’s choice.
This is the first bike we’ve ever seen where the balance between a lightweight, high performance aero road bike and an e-bike has truly been established. With the Aria e-Road you can genuinely have the best of both worlds.
The X35V.2 M1 36V/250W rear hub motor is extremely powerful, producing 40Nm of torque at the rear wheel, offering optimum powered assistance at speeds between 15 and 25km/h. Nestled between the rear cassette sprockets and the rear disc brake rotor, the motor is virtually hidden.
BATTERY AND RECHARGE
The X35 V.2 M1 motor is powered by a slim, 40mm wide 250W battery, positioned inside the downtube of the Aria e-Road frame.
A weatherproof charge-port is located discreetly in the upper surface of the down tube, near the junction with the seat tube, for a simple plug and charge operation via any household mains electricity supply.
Bianchi have fully integrated the iWOC One flush-fit power and battery level controls into the Aria e-Road’s aero top tube making it discreet and unobtrusive.
The Ebikemotion mobile app allows the rider to easily integrate multiple data functions into the ride experience. Covering key motor function, battery status, power control, as well as GPS ride direction and tracking. A specific fitness function, linked to rider performance via heart rate bend, allows to control automatically the assist level of the motor unit by selecting a maximum HR frequency, to keep you in the exercise zone that you prefer.
All electronic wiring is internal, sealed away from the elements and danger, completing the Aria e-Road’s aero aesthetic.
