THE ULTIMATE HARDTAIL
Methanol CV comes ready to tear up the circuit. It has years of innovation and iteration behind it and super-efficient race geometry. It’s a bike for the rider who wants to smash personal bests; the ultimate hardtail.
After Shock Control
Engineered with Bianchi CV System, Methanol CV RS delivers 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.
Bianchi CV system cancels 80% of road vibration thanks to the use of a unique composite material integrated in Bianchi’s high-performance carbon frames and forks. The Bianchi CV vibration cancelling system combines viscoelastic material together with a special carbon fiber architecture to dissipate vibration.
Advantages for the rider are more control, less muscle fatigue and more energy.
TESTED IN EVERY RACE SITUATIONS
Traditional passive damping in frames using superficial rubber inserts and isolators are marginally effective compared to the integrated vibration cancelling system developed by Bianchi for cycling and proven in the extreme conditions.
Methanol CV RS has been engineered to be the best XCO and XCM racing machine, without compromises.
The new frame shape and structure saves weight, improves steering response and accuracy.
Frame’s weight in size 43 is 940gr.
Geometry has been optimized to respond to the new faster, rougher race tracks by adding a longer reach and a slacker head tube angle. This creates a more confident feel for the rider at speed and a greater ability to attack the trail, especially in corners and steep descents.
The Methanol CV RS is now 1x drivetrain specific.
Improved clearance in the chainstays allows to accomodate larger tyres up to 58mm width in wet, muddy conditions.
Make it special with Tavolozza
