The Oltre XR3 is the newest addition to Bianchi’s suite of performance aero road bikes engineered with Countervail patented technology.
The underlying technology used in the XR3Countervail – exclusive to Bianchi CV models – cancels the vibration resulting in increased control and reduced muscle fatigue. According to the brand, the result is a smoother ride and a racer who can stay focused in their most efficient aerodynamic position for longer.
The new model is inspired by – and derived from – the XR4, which was developed in close conjunction with the pro riders of the UCI WorldTour Team LottoNL Jumbo.
Bianchi collaborated with Materials Sciences Corporation to develop its exclusive use of the MSC’s patented Countervail integrated vibration cancelling system for cycling. Countervail is a carbon composite material system that, with its special fibre architecture, combines patented structural carbon with viscoelastic resin. Countervail cancels out 80 per cent of vibrations while increasing the stiffness and strength of 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.
