With the new Oltre XR4 Disc, Bianchi’s leading aero design meets upgraded disc braking performance to the deliver the superior aero road experience.
Disc brakes allow to maintain a clean aero form, while achieving maximum braking efficiency. The key benefit is the modulation of braking power with precision and complete control, in any condition.
ALL WEATHER CONDITIONS
Oltre XR4 hydraulic disc brakes are impervious to adverse weather conditions. By developing the new disc brake equipped Oltre XR4, Bianchi allows you to ride perfect lines at the optimum speed – for every single corner, rain or shine.
Thanks to Bianchi CV System, with the use of Countervail carbon material, and the consistent power, precision and modulation of disc brakes, the new Bianchi Oltre XR4 Disc is the perfect-handling, fast, aero road bike – on any road, in any weather.
Oltre XR4 Disc frame and fork are designed to accommodate wider tires. The extra clearance enhances comfort and grip.
Aero efficiency is key to the Oltre XR4 Disc, and this extends to the new Metron 5D ACR aero handlebar featuring fully -enclosed cable routing through the handlebar itself and stem - for the hydraulic brake hoses and the gear cables.
The Metron 5D ACR bar and stem gives the Oltre XR4 the cleaner, more aero front end for added speed and efficiency.
Oltre XR4 Disc is engineered with the Bianchi CV System with the use of Countervail® carbon material to cancel the road vibration. The result is in a smooth ride and a racer who can stay focused in his fastest, most efficient aerodynamic position for longer.
WHAT IS COUNTERVAIL®?
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.
