Still beyond.

True to its name, the Bianchi Oltre XR.2 Road Bike Frameset went so far beyond the expectations of what a racing frameset could be that there is little to change about it for the new model year. It still has the same WorldTour properties of the frameset ridden by last year's Belkin team, and it will continue with this year's Lotto.NL-Jumbo team. Once technology catches up to it, we may see a rework of the Oltre XR.2. Until then, it remains "beyond."

The present generation still owes the 20% increase in rigidity over the previous model to Bianchi's Carbon NanoTube technology, an innovative, proprietary take on resin and lay-up that shames standard epoxy resin systems by adding 49% more fracture resistance. The increased strength means less of the UMS 40 and CN60 carbon fiber is needed to maintain structural integrity, which explains the 30 grams of lost weight compared to 2013's Oltre XR model. It's all laid-up with Bianchi's Wrinkleless Molding Process that compresses the carbon internally, eliminating resin deposits and imperfections for a uniform inner wall. This increases strength, reduces weight, and — along with the thin, compliant seat stays — makes for a smoother ride.

The smoothness is surprising, considering the frame's responsiveness, which is further complemented by by Bianchi's X-Tex carbon technology. X-Tex lays the fibers up in an X-shaped grid where power input from the rider torques the frame, the head tube and bottom bracket, for even more efficient stiffness. The tapered head tube, oversized, BB386 bottom bracket, and massive chain stays add yet more stiffness to the drivetrain — but be warned, you may notice flex in your crankset or handlebars that you were certain wasn't there before.

The Oltre XR.2 also enjoys aerodynamic advantages over its predecessor, which is a required feature in an age where even the helmets are aerodynamic. The key areas for this improvement are head tube, down tube, and fork, which see Bianchi's fork "wing" concept developed beyond where it was before. The head tube was reworked to better shield the top juncture of the down tube, taking full advantage of the integrated fork's slippery profile. These areas retain their mechanical and electronic compatibility, with internal cable routing throughout and the same improved head tube entry port for brake cable routing.

Great, well rounded,classic road bike!

    One of the great all around classics! The kit calculator may not show all available options for a custom build and can be a bit tricky in configuring but if we have it on the site we can build it. Often times we have items not listed on the site as well. If you need help in configuring this bike feel free to contact me direct. I'm always happy to oblige!

    Looking at either the Cervelo s3 or the Bianchi oltre and just having a hard time making up my mind, any thoughts? I have read very good things about both bikes.

    Thank you

    I have ridden some good bikes in my day but this one takes the cake. This bike is very stiff, light, efficient, and beautiful. Bianchi has done a fantastic job and I honestly think this is one of the absolute best frames for the average hard core rider that can be had.

    Best Ride I've Ever Had

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I own a lot of top-of-the-line frames (BMC, S-Works, Look, etc) and I can say without a doubt that this is the best I've ever ridden. The BB386 bottom bracket is so stiff and no energy feels wasted. I thought my Tarmac SL4 was stiff but this is noticeably stiffer but at the same time it is compliant and nice to ride. If you are thinking about a getting this frame just do it. You will not be sorry.



    Also, I want to say thank you to Wes who helped me with selecting the parts and getting it built quickly.

    My 2015 Oltre XR.2

    May I know what is ur height and inseam ?
    I started to fall in love with this bike too and wondering what is the best size for me.. (i'm 185cm tall with 87cm inseam)

    Beautiful bike, how do you like the enve rims? Wondering if I should throw them on mine

    Sorry for replying so late. I love the ENVE wheels and recommend them highly.

    To ERIKBOT and MWJ...: Same question as above regarding sizing. More specifically: according to my current bike's measures and the Bike Fit calculator, I would need a 57 size frame. However Bianchi's recommendation based solely on rider,s height puts me in a 59 frame. I am 6 ft (183 cm) tall, inseam 88cm. Thanks!
