Infinito CV Disc Force AXS Complete Bike
The Bianchi Infinito is the choice of Lotto-Jumbo when the cobble classics beckon. For these marathon events over harsh roads, the team will choose this model over the more aggressive, aero, and slightly harsher ride of the Otre. The frame's more relaxed position with its slightly taller head tube and longer wheelbase provide increased comfort and extra tire clearance, but since it's still a race bike after all, it still maintains efficient power transfer and still has some aero touches. The Infinito CV Disc Force AXS Complete Bike gets a custom Competitive Cyclist build that's poised to shepherd you through your longest days, tackle the roughest roads, or toe the line of your favorite gran fondo.
This latest version of the Infinito Disc features redesigned frame shapes for more comfort and tire clearance (up to 32mm) that works with its endurance-specific geometry for all-day comfort. Longer chainstays help smooth the ride, and a taller, aero headtube provides a position that is efficient, yet comfortable. Soaking up the road imperfections is Bianchi's exclusive Countervail’s vibration canceling technology. Countervail reduces muscle fatigue and improves control for better overall performance, especially on chipseal roads and over cobblestones. This material, developed by Materials Science Corporation (MSC) and created for NASA, is a viscoelastic carbon layer that's sandwiched between the standard high-modulus carbon layers to devour vibration and road noise without compromising stiffness.
The Infinito CV Disc also enjoys the same Carbon Nano Technology used in the construction of Bianchi's top-end, race-specific Oltre XR. This process uses nano-scaled particles to reduce the microscopic gaps between the resin and the carbon, increasing strength and fracture-resistance by a claimed 49% compared to standard epoxy resin. Of course, the added safety of disc brakes means you're that much less likely to rely on the added fracture resistance.
The new Infinito Disc is also engineered to be also more aero by using a frame specific carbon seatpost with an adjustable setback. The bike is also compatible with the Metron 5D aero handlebar if you are looking for an integrated design and sleek aesthetic of a bar/stem combo.
The benefits of disc brakes are gaining momentum on the road, and Bianchi's Infinito CV Disc is the latest high-level frame to be offered with disc compatibility. The reasons are simple. Disc brakes aren't affected by damaged rims, they don't cause damage to rims, and you can run carbon rims without worrying about the loud engagement and low-power braking issues that have plagued wheelset innovation. Sure, you can generate enough stopping power to lock-up your wheel with rim brakes, but using a disc lets you modulate that power more carefully, avoiding lock-ups and ensuring smooth, safe stops.
This particular version is built up with SRAM's all-new Force eTap AXS electronic group that provides precise shifts and easy customization. It rolls on Reynolds AR41 Carbon Disc Tubeless Wheelset, further feeding your carbon diet and keeping the lightweight and aero theme going. Further components shout outs extend to compatriots 3T, Vittoria, and Fizik who provide the cockpit, tires, and saddle respectively.
