What if we used every ounce of experience we've gained serving riders over the past 46 years and built a bike made simply for the love of riding? The Aethos is designed to straddle the line between perfect ride quality, extreme lightweight, and undeniable style. The Aethos Comp model is no exception. With low-maintenance, wireless SRAM Rival eTap AXS electronic shifting and hydraulic disc brakes paired with bomb-proof DT Swiss R470 Disc wheels, you have the perfect steed to excite you out on the road. - A featherweight frame is useless without confidence-inspiring ride characteristics, which is why we've developed the Aethos to have the perfect balance of front and rear stiffness combined with exceptional ride quality. By studying the flexing and breathing of carbon fiber, we were able to discover groundbreaking findings of how forces flow through frames. Just a few pedal strokes and you'll realize this sublime ride sets a new standard. - Every detail, from the derailleur hangers to the fork expander plug have been designed with style, weight, and durability in mind. We've also spec'd it with Roval's all-new Alpinist carbon seatpost, further saving weight and improving ride characteristics. Everything in pursuit of the perfect ride. - The Aethos frame has been designed with the perfect combination of ultimate ride feel, lightweight, and style, from accelerating up steep pitches and descending technical descents, to all-day saddle comfort on even the longest coffee rides, the Aethos hits the mark. But how, you ask? By reinventing the traditional road shape found on bikes of the past, we've subtly altered these shapes to deliver massive gains in stiffness and balance, all without affecting weight or durability. Pair that with an entirely new layup and process that we've perfected over multiple decades and you have the lightest frame out there (585 grams, S-Works, size 56cm). The Aethos is more than just a new bike, it's the first of a new breed.
Back in 1885. the address of Eduardo Bianchi's workshop was 7 Via Nirone. The Via Nirone is one of the original endurance race geometry bikes that pioneered this category over a decade ago. Riders seeking a quick and comfortable day in the saddle will find it aboard the Via Nirone. It utilizes Bianchi's proven K-VID (Kevlar Vibration Isolation Device) vibration damping technology in its carbon fork, a triple butted, hydroformed aluminum frame, as well as BAT (Bianchi Active Technology) to optimize the rider's sitting and pedaling position on the bike. Geometry shared with the Infinito allows you to steer confidently at speed, stay relaxed while riding faster and farther with more comfort. Endurance Racing bikes are performance road bikes made comfortable, not comfort-oriented road bikes. This fine roadster sports a quality Reparto Corse wheelset, an 18-speed Shimano Sora drivetrain for easy climbing, and Reparto Corse dual-pivot brakes for excellent speed control. Trusty Reparto Corse cockpit components and a Selle San Marco saddle round out a classic package that's a great entry point for a newer rider, or a solid next bike for someone more seasoned.
