2023 BIANCHI OLTRE PRO SRAM FORCE ETAP AXS ROAD BIKE
Bianchi’s Oltre Pro Force Disc Road Bike pairs an incredibly low drag frame with aerodynamic components and an electronic groupset, making it a rapid, responsive and enjoyable ride.
The carbon frame features dropped and flattened seatstays, a seat tube cut out that wraps around the rear wheel and a concave downtube for the front wheel to fit into, all in the pursuit of drag reduction. Air Deflector fairings on the headtube marry up with the downtube’s sculpted shape and, along with the large hole in the handlebar, create a low-pressure area behind, reducing the effect of the wind on the bike and rider for better aerodynamics. The combined effect of these developments means that Bianchi claims the new frame saves 17.1 watts at 50kph and is 45 seconds faster over 40km than the Oltre XR4, their previous aero bike.
Whilst the frame’s design certainly concentrates on extracting every ounce of speed from the rider, this isn’t at the expense of comfort, with Bianchi’s Countervail carbon technology ensuring that long rides or poor road surfaces don’t become uncomfortable.
50mm deep, tubeless-ready carbon wheels complement the fast frame perfectly as they are from Bianchi’s in-house brand Reparto Corse, and offer a suitably aerodynamic profile to the wind that is effective at a wide range of yaw angles. Frame clearance allows the use of tyres up to 30mm wide.
SRAM’s fully wireless Force eTap AXS groupset operates in exactly the same fashion as the range-topping RED version, so shifts are quick, accurate and effortlessly actuated from the intuitive shifters. By using smaller chainrings than normal and a cassette that has a 10t sprocket, the drivetrain minimises gaps between ratios whilst still offering a wide range of gears suitable for any parcours. The system can be connected to a GPS head unit for extra data whilst riding or with SRAM’s AXS smartphone app for post-ride analysis and customisation options.
