NEW Bianchi Specialissima CV

The Complete All-Round Ultralight Racing Bike

Totally re-engineered with the all-rounder in mind, the all new 2021 Specialissima helps you fly up the climbs and dominate on the flat. The carbon disc frame is light, weighing just 750g, so none of your climbing power is wasted when the road turns upward, but it’s also superbly-stiff providing excellent transfer of that power to the road. The new Specialissima is designed for WorldTour professionals but it is also the perfect ride for all riders looking for the ultimate superfast superlight racing bike.

Bianchi’s aim in developing the Specialissima was really very simple:  to use their patented Countervail (CV) vibration absorbing technology to build the best ultra-light bike in the world.  By using CV in every part of the Specialissima frameset, Bianchi have been able to use thinner, stronger and super stiff tube sets without any of the drawbacks often associated with ultralight bikes – such as twitchiness on descents, and the harshness that frequently results from efforts to deliver strength and avoid the excessive lateral flex that would otherwise be inherent with thin walled tubing.  The result is stunning –  the handling, climbing, descending and acceleration of the Specialissima is quite simply class-leading in every department.

The overall look of the new Spacialissima might be classic but make no mistake – with enhanced climbing, improved stopping power courtesy of disc brakes and smoother aerodynamic performance, it’s a new pure racing machine, bearing a name that has become iconic.

The key technology in the new Specialissima is Countervail® – a carbon composite-material system that combines patented structural carbon with viscoelastic resin.  Bianchi collaborated with Materials Sciences Corp. to develop an exclusive application of their patented Countervail integrated vibration cancelling system for use in the consruction of bicycle tubing. Scientific studies prove that long term exposure to vibration, typically absorbed by the rider, causes muscle fatigue and discomfort, resulting in reduced performance – and the stiffer the bike, in terms of flex under power, the more vibration becomes an issue, affecting not only comfort but stability and control at speed. Countervail is expensive stuff – but it’s worth every penny as it is quite simply unique in its ability to cancel vibrations and deliver control and power.

The Specialissima sits at the top of Bianchi’s road racing all-rounder category, delivering the same climbing panache you know and love, but with boosted aero-performance and a level of stiffness rarely seen on a bike this light.  The carbon disc frame weighs just 750g and the stiffness to weight ratio is right at the very top level of cycling performance.

For aero improvements, Bianchi employed innovations devised for the prolific race winning Oltre aero platform, with better integration, sharper lines and aero-shaped tubes. Details that make a massive improvement to your ride.

An aggressive race machine with epic climbing power, the Specialissima harnesses the power of lightweight.

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, or as a complete bike as listed in the Bianchi catalogue.
