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, using Countervail®’s unique carbon fiber architecture and viscoelastic resin, 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.
The key technology Countervail® is a carbon composite-material system that combines patented structural carbon with viscoelastic resin.
BIANCHI CV INTEGRATED VIBRATION CANCELLING SYSTEM
Bianchi collaborated with Materials Sciences Corporation to develop our innovative and exclusive use of the MSC’s patented Countervail® integrated vibration cancelling system for cycling.
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.
Countervail® is embedded within the entire frame of Bianchi CV high-performance road and MTB models: Specialissima, Oltre XR4, Oltre XR3, Infinito CV, Aquila CV and Methanol CV.
PROVEN IN NASA AEROSPACE OPERATIONS
Traditional passive damping in frames using superficial rubber inserts and isolators are marginally effective compared to the integrated carbon Countervail® system developed by Bianchi for cycling and proven in the extreme conditions of NASA aerospace operations.
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
Bianchi Tavolozza is the exclusive web color configurator available for Bianchi CV models engineered with Countervail® vibration cancelling technology. All frames personalized with Tavolozza color configurator, including graphics and logos, are hand-painted and decaled in Italy by expert craftsmen, combining Bianchi’s timeless skills of tailoring together with advanced technologies.
