LATEST NEWS: BIANCHI RELEASES 2013 RACE BIKE
December 10, 2012


Bianchi officially unveils the new World Tour team Vacansoleil-DCM's Oltre XR model for 2013 season. Oltre XR is Bianchi's monocoque carbon frame designed for extreme performance and developed with Vacansoleil-DCM. Thanks to the combination of UMS40 and CN60 Ultra High Modulus carbon fibers, the Oltre XR features 30gr weight reduction and 20% increased rigidity compared to Oltre model.

Its increased rigidity and Bianchi’s unique racing geometry are combined to provide fast acceleration, maximum power transmission and enhanced handling. The extreme rigidity to weight ratio of the new Oltre XR provides optimal climbing performance while the aero shape of the frame assures the highest speeds in both flat and downhill sections.
 
The perfect match between traditional Bianchi's celeste and Vacansoleil's blue with yellow inserts makes the Vacansoleil-DCM's Oltre XR aggressive and eye-catching.

As Made in Italy is a distinguishing trait of Bianchi, Giro d'Italia third classified Thomas de Gendt and his team mates will ride in 2013 Campagnolo Super Record EPS groupset, combined with FSA K-Force crankset and new SL-K brakes.
