Bianchi supplies the Team Jumbo-Visma with four models engineered with the Bianchi CV system powered by Countervail: 
•             Oltre XR4, designed to maximize the aerodynamic advantage and control 
•             Specialissima, the ultralight frame, perfect for GC riders, it’s extra stiff for increased traction and stability at high speeds, and maximum control on the descents
•             Aquila CV, the ultimate time trial machine, designed to increase power output and rider's energy, with maximum control with each pedal stroke 
•             Infinito CV, the ideal bike for the Classics, providing remarkable control on uneven surfaces and reducing muscular fatigue
