Bianchi Infinito CV Road Frameset - 2017 $3,499.99
Designed to cover long distances at speed, the 2017 Bianchi Infinito CV Road Frameset marks a strategic re-thinking of how we define racing bikes by shifting the focus to a less stressed riding position with relaxed geometry without sacrificing efficiency or power transfer. For the Infinito, this manifests as a taller head tube and elongated wheelbase for increased comfort to shepherd riders through rough roads and epic centuries with ease.
The comfort factor of the Infinito is astonishing when one realizes that it still fits squarely within Bianchi's competition range of framesets. Certainly, its ride properties benefit from the strategic use of vibration-damping Countervail and an extended wheelbase that smooths out rough road surfaces. "Vibration Cancelling Composite Technology" is the phrase used for this all-new viscoelastic carbon layer, and Bianchi has integrated the material at critical areas of the frame and fork, sandwiching it between the standard carbon layers. As a result, vibrations are dulled before reaching the rider, and the frame's overall stiffness levels remain unchanged.
Bianchi also incorporated the Carbon Nano Technology found in its top-end race machine, the 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. In whole, Bianchi refers to this process as BAT (Bianchi Active Technology), which means that the combination of materials and shapes maintain the frame's phenomenal torsional stiffness for a full-blown power transfer and grand tour handling characteristics. But, at the same time, it provides enough vertical compliance for you to fully enjoy the bike on a century, gran fondo, or your winter training rides.
If you're wondering why you should consider the Infinito CV over the Oltre or Specialissima, keep in mind that the Infinito is designed to satisfy three key objectives: To reduce rider fatigue, provide greater comfort, and accommodate long distance riding. So, if you only have one bike in your quiver, and your idea of riding is oriented more towards spirited group or individual rides, the Infinito CV may well be your bike. Moreover, if your core lacks the strength of Cancellara, or your flexibility requires that you add an aesthetically displeasing number of spacers below your stem on an agro race frame, the additional head tube height may better accommodate your physiological needs.

On the Bianchi infinitio cv,,,,, will it accommodate 700 x 32 tires or is 28 the limit?????
Hi Greg, 28c is the max on the Infinito.
I have a 2015 model. I tried the 7000x 28 and it didn't work. the tire was rubbing the frame. no side clearance, no radial clearance
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought this frame about a month ago. Added SRAM Red 22 Groupset, Mavic hand built wheels, FSA seat tube and bars. Since finishing the build on July 30 I have ridden a little over 330 miles, including climbs and rolling hills. The comfort of this frame is incredible. I thought my Synapse carbon was sweet, but it seem to me that the Counterveil technology of this frame absorbs slightly more road vibration making the ride more comfortable. I would score the Synapse 8.5 and give this frame a 9. The geometry of this frame is relaxed and longer (50+ miles]rides are comfortable. The frame was well prepped by BC before its arrival and I had no issue whatsoever with the build. I recommend this frame for anyone looking to build a comfortable affordable carbon bike.
Will it take sram's hydraulic rim brakes?
Hi Eric! You certainly can!
This is a great all around bike-well suited for all types of riding. It has a slightly more relaxed geometry so very comfortable in doing longer distances on the bike and the CV technology makes it very smooth on the road. If you need help configuring this bike or have general questions with it fell free to reach out to me direct!
