FAST JUST GOT FASTER
As a competitive race bike, the Methanol already has a proven pedigree. The Methanol CV FS represents the next evolution of the model, the most complete full-suspension XC machine we’ve ever made
An overhauled geometry means the chain stays are shorter, the reach is longer and the head tube angle is slacker, making this the perfect bike for any cross-country racer.
The Methanol CV full-suspension will not only improve the way you ride, it will change how you ride. Technical descents once deemed too rough to attempt are now a breeze thanks to the Bianchi CV System: the use of special carbon architecture and viscoelastic material allow to cancel 80% of the vibration, resulting in improved after shock control.
The trickiest root and rock sections will disappear below you. The Methanol CV FS isn’t fazed by the biggest drops and roughest tracks
The all-new carbon frame is built exclusively for use with 1x drivetrains, so you can keep spec weight to a minimum, and it comes in 15”, 17”, 19” and 21” versions. As you’d expect with a competition-crushing race bike, the frame has internal cable routes and is dropper post-compatible. It runs up to 29×2.4” tyres and has a Boost 12x148TA rear axle.
The stiffness of the frame, combined with the vibration cancelling capacity of the Bianchi CV System, provides the best traction on the climbs as you push and pull yourself away from the competition. They’ll watch as you disappear through the trees, working your way to setting personal bests, choosing the fastest lines possible.
