Oltre XR3 Disc
Maximize aero advantage and control
 
INTRODUCING THE NEW OLTRE XR3 DISC
 
PERFECT CONTROL MEETS AERO PERFORMANCE WITH THE NEW OLTRE XR3. NOW WITH DISC BRAKES
 
 
OBJECTIVE
 

Our objective is to offer superior bike control through added braking power and increased braking modulation. The new Oltre XR3 Disc enables to maintain a more consistent overall speed through the corners, with less effort from the rider.

 

 

The new Oltre XR3 benefits from the same revolutionary frame-design developments proven at the highest level of racing on the acclaimed Bianchi Oltre XR4. The Oltre XR3 delivers the perfect combination of control, and the competitive advantage of advanced aerodynamics. Now available with disc brakes.

 

 

 

PRECISION AND POWER CONTROL

 

Disc brakes allow you 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 XR3 hydraulic disc brakes are impervious to adverse weather conditions. By developing the new disc brake equipped Oltre XR3, Bianchi allows you to ride perfect lines at the optimum speed – for every single corner, rain or shine.

PERFECT HANDLING

For the rider, the new Bianchi Oltre XR3 Disc is a revelation on the road. With its viscoelastic resin in the Countervail equipped frame and the consistent power, precision and modulation of disc brakes, the new Bianchi Oltre XR3 Disc the ideal handling fast aero road bike - on any road, in any weather.

 

CLEARANCE
Oltre XR3 Disc frame and fork are designed to accommodate wider tires. The extra clearance enhances comfort and grip.

 

 

AERO INTEGRATION

 

In conjunction with Bianchi professional testers, we have designed and engineered a new Oltre XR3 carbon frame and fork - as an integrated system – to work specifically with the new disc brakes while maintaining the Oltre’s aerodynamic advantage.

 

 

ENGINEERED WITH BIANCHI CV SYSTEM

 

The underlying technology used in the XR3 – Countervail®, exclusive to Bianchi CV models – cancels the vibration resulting in increased control and reduced muscle fatigue. The result with the Oltre XR3 is a smooth ride and a racer who can stay focused in their fastest, most efficient aerodynamic position for longer.

Oltre XR3 riders retain the best possible control, a significant advantage wherever and however you ride and race, with no compromise in power transfer from pedal-stroke to pedal-stroke.

 

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.
