There are few colors more ingrained in cycling tradition than Bianchi's beautiful celeste, and the featherweight Specialissima Dura-Ace R9100 Complete Road Bike offers a modern take on the classic colorway with whispers of soaring vistas and flying descents. This isn't a bike you take to a local criterium to bash bars with your fellow age groupers, it's one that begs for adventure and epic summer getaways to the peaks of the Pyrenees and beyond.

The frame is built to climb like a (svelte) mountain goat, and the inclusion of ENVE's venerable SES 2.2 climbing specialist wheelset reaffirms the Specialissima's prowess to climb like the wind without sacrificing responsiveness in the turns and twisting descents. Shimano's new Dura-Ace groupset provides the gearing, blending low weight and precision with aesthetics that perfectly complement the frame's classic lines.

Made from super light and stiff carbon fiber, the Specialissima brings together a perfect balance of lightweight responsiveness, stiff power transfer, and impeccable handling to deftly navigate any road at speed. Bianchi also borrows the Countervail integrated vibration cancelling system found in its endurance-focused Infinito CV, infusing the Specialissima with exceptional vibration damping abilities to soften energy-zapping road noise. Bianchi owns the patent on Countervail, which involves a viscoelastic carbon material inserted between carbon layers for a claimed 80% reduction in road vibration feel. This makes the frame superbly comfortable over the miles while ensuring that all of your power goes straight into the rear wheel.

For an extra dose of stiffness, Bianchi opts for a beefy PressFit BB86 shell that solidly transfers every bit of power to the drivetrain without any watt-sapping lateral movement. While this frame isn't billed as specifically aerodynamic, Bianchi does take cues from its Aqulia CV time trial bike in creating the Specialissima's front end, importing the integrated head tube and fork for a smooth transition that slices through the air with ease. You'll enjoy some aerodynamic benefits over frames without the integrated headtube and fork combo—not to mention cleaner looking lines.

  • A lightweight road bike designed to soar in the mountains
  • Race-ready geometry responds quickly
  • Super light carbon construction drops grams
  • Countervail technology soaks up road noise
  • Internal cable routing provides clean lines
  • Alloy inserts on the dropouts protect from skewer scratches
  • Featherweight carbon wheelset boosts climbing prowess
  • Shimano's new top-tier drivetrain minimizes weight and shifts precisely
