Ride infinitely.

It doesn't take an etymologist to figure that the Italian word "infinito" relates to the English word "infinite." In the context of this bike frame, what does that imply? Infinite wisdom? Infinite beauty? Infinite pleasure? Check all those boxes. The word technically translates into "forever", and that's exactly how long you'll want to ride the Bianchi Infinito Road Bike Frame once you get rolling.

The Infinito is the top-notch frame in Bianchi's C2C (Coast-to-Coast) family of bikes, intending its focus on greater comfort to make it easier to ride longer distances with less of a toll on your body when compared to the company's other offerings. How so? First, let's look at the geometry: compared to the company's more race-oriented Oltre frame series, the Infinito has a taller head tube, so the rider sits up slightly higher, taking strain off the lower back. The Infinito's head tube angle is also slightly more slack (71.5 degrees versus 72), placing the front wheel a bit further out in front of the rider to sedate the handling a bit and make the bike less twitchy. This modification combines with a retuned rear triangle that elongates the frame's wheelbase, lending a more stable and relaxed feeling to the bike, especially at greater speeds.

It's not all about hard numbers, though. Bianchi went to painstaking distances to bestow the Infinito with a smooth ride quality to compliment the frame's more composed nature afforded by its geometry. The frame's carbon is first laid using the company's Carbon Nano Technology, which allows for a more efficient use of carbon fiber by utilizing microscopic carbon particles to fill in gaps and reduce the need for heavy, flexible resins to weigh down the frame. But wait, isn't a little bit of flex a good thing if you want a smooth-riding bike? Yes, but you want that flex to be controlled. Without control, the bike can just feel jittery and unstable. CNT allows Bianchi's engineers more precise control of the carbon's movements under load, particularly in areas like the head tube, fork, seat stays, and seat tube junction, where impact forces can discombobulate the rider and the path of the bike.

Alongside the utilization of CNT, Bianchi weaves Kevlar into certain areas of the Infinito's frame to further reduce vibration and impacts and create a smoother rider. Kevlar is similar to carbon with respect to its strength and weight, but it's a far more pliable, flexible fiber. When properly and precisely implemented into the carbon, the result is a beautifully dampened ride that is calm but never isolating from the road, not unlike the suspension of a luxury GT car - because you want to feel a connection to the pavement, but you don't need every nuance of it transmitted directly into your wrists and back.

The Bianchi Infinito Road Bike Frame is available in the color Celeste/white and in six odd sizes from 50 to 61cm. Each frame includes a full carbon, Kevlar-inserted Bianchi HoC1 tapered fork and a FSA Orbit headset. Altogether, the frame weight of a 55cm tips the scales at around 1080 grams. The frame utilizes an English threaded bottom bracket, 31.6mm seatpost and 34.9mm seat clamp.

the best!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have a 2012 infinito and it is the most comfortable frame I have ever ridden. I've put on 9000 miles on the frame including a bunch of centuries and several 200 milers and didn't have any comfort issues. It absorbs rough road with ease and can even be ridden comfortably on gravel and non single track trails. I can only imagine what the CV is like. As long as this infinito holds up I won't need another frame because nothing compares. The only frame I could see upgrading to would be an infinito CV and I might have to in a year or two just to have one. I would also add I bought this through Comp cyclist in an emergency situation and they were absolutely without question the best to deal with in getting me this frame in a tight time frame.

COMFORT

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I been using Pinarello all my life, but since I switch to this 5 star Infinito wont move anywhere else. Super smooth and comfortable in all type of rides. Long ones, shorts ones, climbing, flat, you named. I build it up with Campy components. Every where I take it, is a must look bike.
