Why We Like The Oltre XR4 Road Bike Frameset
The Oltre XR4 Road Bike Frameset is built on Bianchi's foundation of road cycling and racing knowledge. That shows in the speed and responsiveness of the frame, which lets us challenge ourselves when we're faced with fast sprints and gnarly climbs. We choose Bianchi because of its reputation for crafting road racing steeds that exceed expectations when it comes to lightness, compliance, and speed, and we are opting to go for the Oltre XR4 for those reasons, and also because it's a go-to frame choice for pro teams. Everything from tire clearance to aerodynamics matters in racing, and the Oltre XR4 is replete with features that ensure greatness.
Let's start with the fact that this frame is built with Bianchi's renowned Countervail technology. It quells high-frequency road vibrations to make for a more comfortable ride when we're speeding over cobbles and choppy pavement. This counters the bike's stiff efficiency, making it ideal for everything from serious stages to multi-week tours. Oversized tubes, a press-fit bottom bracket, and a high-modulus carbon frame add to the bike's race-ready makeup, and all that inspires us to ride strong and aggressively, powering through each portion of our race or training session to achieve our goals and conquer what we didn't know was possible.
*Due to unprecedented demand in the global supply chain and the bike industry over the last 18 months, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be minor. If you have any questions, reach out to a Gearhead by chatting online or calling 1-888-276-7130.
