Methanol CV
AFTER SHOCK CONTROL
 
A REVOLUTION IN MOUNTAIN BIKING
 
OPTIMIZED TO OUTPERFORM.
THE METHANOL CV WITH REVOLUTIONARY COUNTERVAIL® NEXT GENERATION CARBON TECHNOLOGY
 
The new Methanol CV – the first ever mountain bike frame enhanced with Bianchi’s innovative and exclusive Countervail® vibration-cancelling technology developed for NASA by Materials Sciences Corporation – recalibrates performance as the fastest, most composed cross-country MTB ever created.
 
Countervail®’s unique carbon fiber architecture and its properties deliver total “After-Shock Control” by eliminating vibrations that pass through the suspension after impact and from trail buzz.
 
“After-Shock Control” delivers an entirely new level of ride quality, with increased accuracy, reduced muscular fatigue and total performance.
 
 
 
 
 
 
COUNTERVAIL® TECHNOLOGY
 
Bianchi CV is Bianchi’s integrated vibration cancelling system for cycling, with innovative and exclusive use of MSC’s patented Countervail® material.
 

Countervail® is a carbon composite-material system that, with special fiber architecture, combines patented structural carbon with viscoelastic resin. Countervail® cancels 80% of vibrations while increasing the stiffness and strength of our carbon frames and forks.

 
 
 
OPTIMIZED TO OUTPERFORM
 
REDUCED FATIGUE
Countervail® technology reduces vibration and dissipates trail buzz more quickly and more effectively than any other material technology – up to 200% more – so that less trail vibrations reach you, reducing muscular fatigue so you’ve more energy to attack the trails – a significant performance advantage.
 
MAXIMUM POWER DELIVERY
Countervail® frame, wide-stanced BB92 bottom bracket, tapered head tube and short chainstays combine to create an optimally stiff and direct pedalling platform for maximum power transfer.
 
GREATER CONTROL
Improved traction delivers more control under braking, sprinting, cornering, climbing and beyond.
