Countervail®
ONE TECHNOLOGY TUNED FOR EVERY NEED
 
 
BIANCHI CV is Bianchi's INTEGRATED VIBRATION CANCELLING SYSTEM for cycling, with innovative and exclusive use of Materials Sciences Corporation's patented Countervail® material.
 

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.

 
 
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 tested in NASA aerospace operations.
 

 

 

 

ONE TECHNOLOGY TUNED FOR EVERY NEED

Bianchi's Countervail® Vibration Cancelling system has been specifically tuned to provide different advantages to improve performance for each type of riding.

 

 

RACING / SPECIALISSIMA

 

Specialissima is the next Countervail® evolution: ultralight formula

 

ADVANTAGES:

  • Ultralight and rigid
  • Full energy transfer into power
  • Fast and reactive during climbing and unparalleled control and precision in descents
 
 
 
RACING / OLTRE XR4 / OLTRE XR3
 
Oltre XR4 is the cutting edge of aerodynamics
 
ADVANTAGES:
  • hold an extreme aero position at high speeds for longer and maximize aerodynamic advantage
  • Reduced muscle fatigue
  • Increased peak power output
 
 
 
ENDURANCE / INFINITO CV
 
Infinito CV is the first model where the integrated system Countervail® has been introduced
 
ADVANTAGES:
  • Maximized ride control and handling
  • Reduced muscle fatigue during long distance rides
  • Increased peak power output over long distances
 
 
 
TIME TRIAL & TRIATHLON / AQUILA CV
 
Aquila CV has been developed to obtain the best performance in professional time trial
 
ADVANTAGES:
  • Maintain the best aero position in varied road conditions
  • Reduced upper body muscle fatigue, empowering legs strength and increasing overall performance
  • Reduce energy consumption
 

 

CROSS COUNTRY MTB / METHANOL CV

 

Methanol CV recalibrates performance as the fastest, most composed cross-country MTB ever created.

Countervail®’s unique carbon fiber architecture and its proporties deliver 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.
 

ADVANTAGES:

  • Reduced Fatigue - Quick and more effective reduction of vibration and dissipation of trail buzz
  • Maximum power delivery - An optimally stiff and direct pedalling platform
  • Greater control under braking, sprinting, cornering, climbing and beyond
