A winning combination, once again. Dylan Groenewegen and Oltre XR4’s early season successful stretch continues at Paris-Nice. Team LottoNL-Jumbo's athlete topped the stage-2 of the French WorldTour race, 187 km from Orsonville to Vierzon, standing out among some of the World's top sprinter. Italian Elia Viviani and German André Greipel couldn't do other than settle for the second and the third position respectively.

So far in 2018, the aero advantage granted by Oltre XR4 allowed Groenewegen to win Dubai Tour’s opener, Volta ao Algarve em Bicicleta’s first and fourth stage, Kuurne-Bruxelles-Kuurne and Paris-Nice stage 2.

Enhanced with the revolutionary Countervail® vibration cancelling technology, the Bianchi Oltre XR4 high-performance aero road racing machine allows rider to hold the most aerodynamic position at higher speeds and for longer, in order to maximize the aerodynamic advantage. The Oltre XR4 was designed to be at the absolute cutting edge of aerodynamics thanks to advanced CFD and Flow Visualization – technologies borrowed straight from aerospace and F1 car design: technology that turns into valuable watts in head-to-head finishes like today’s.

Bianchi supplies the Team LottoNL-Jumbo with four models engineered with the revolutionary Countervail® Vibration Cancelling Technology:
  • 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
