Bianchi continues the Countervail® revolution with the introduction of another technological evolution to increase power transfer and ride control.
 
 
 
 
 
 
At 780gr*, Bianchi Specialissima frame changes the game in the ultralight frame category thanks to the use of MSC's patented Countervail® integrated vibration cancelling system for cycling, developed for NASA by Materials Sciences Corporation. The new Bianchi's Countervail® ultralight carbon formula is specifically tuned to smooth out the inherent nervousness of ultralight frames.
 
 
 
 
PURE POWER AND CONTROL
 
Excellent traction and stability at high speeds makes Bianchi's Specialissima ideal tackling different types of surfaces during fast accelerations and super high-speed corners when maximum power and control are essential.
