Reparto Corse set out to re-engineer our Impulso platform to better suit the needs of competitive gravel racers.
Tuned for those who demand the holy trinity of aerodynamic performance, low weight, and off-road capability.
In order to win gravel races, you need a machine that is engineered for the task. The Impulso RC is built to make you faster.
RACING GRAVEL TUNED
Reparto Corse has meticulously optimised the Impulso RC for the demands of the high-velocity, extremely technical discipline of gravel racing.
Treating every facet as part of the cohesive performance whole, this systematic approach is becoming central to Bianchi’s design thinking.
Lessons learned from the Oltre RC aero bike and our next-generation Specialissima RC allrounder have been applied to the Impulso, along with an integrated fork and specifically crafted aero wheelset, creating one of the most aerodynamic gravel bikes in its category.
The seat post uses a D-shaped profile, allowing for greater comfort in the saddle compared with a perfect NACA profile – perfect for challenging mixed terrain.
For pure performance, the design of the Impulso frame is kept intentionally clean, inspired by the sleek aerodynamic frames of our road machines.
There are no extra mounts for multiple bag and bottle installation, or protruding screws to add weight or drag.
On fast gravel race parcours, you need to have total control. Reparto Corse devoted significant resources to enhancing the cockpit system of the Impulso RC, putting the power to win in your grasp.
On the re-engineered Impulso, we’ve focused on the stiffness of the cockpit system to achieve a much better racing feel and advanced control.
Ride with flare
The 16° flare of the bars helps give the rider extra control on technical downhill sections.
The carbon fibre handlebar is extremely light within the gravel category, tipping the scales at just 340g.
FOR EVERY TYPE OF RIDER
The new Impulso family comprises three different models: Impulso RC, Impulso Pro and Impulso Comp, each designed specifically for a precise user.
For elite gravel racers
The Impulso RC is made for elite gravel racers, those who want to be competitive in the UCI Gravel World Championships. The weight of the bike is 8.1 kg (+/-5% in size M), it is fitted with RC43 aero wheels and offered in a single colourway, metallic celeste accented with classic celeste.See the bike
For off-road experts
The Impulso Pro was created for off-road experts who throw everything into their competitive pursuits.
This model is available in two colourways, traditional celeste and a steely grey – both with a matt finish.
Introduction to high-speed gravel riding
The Impulso Comp is an introduction to high-speed gravel riding. Coming in two glossy paint finishes: iconic celeste and a premium gold-brown, inspired by the rich tones of the forest.See the bike
