The 2017 Bianchi Infinito CV Disc Road Frameset is redefining how we conceptualize race bikes. In stark contrast to the super-aggressive, slammed geometries we so often associate with racing, this frameset offers a more relaxed position with a slightly taller head tube and elongated wheelbase for increased comfort while still maintaining efficient power transfer. The Infinito CV Disc is right at home railing corners, conquering cobbles, or meandering scenic roads on your favorite gran fondo and, with international rules set to lift disc brake restrictions in the near future, this bike will soon be legal to race regardless of an event's sanctioning body.
The geometry's focus on rider comfort is complemented by Bianchi's strategic use of vibration-damping Countervail technology. Countervail, a patented material developed by Materials Science Corporation (MSC) and Bianchi, is a viscoelastic carbon layer that's sandwiched between the standard high-modulus carbon layers to devour vibration and road noise without compromising stiffness.
The Infinito CV Disc also enjoys the same Carbon Nano Technology used in the construction of Bianchi's top-end, race-specific Oltre XR. This process uses nano-scaled particles to reduce the microscopic gaps between the resin and the carbon, increasing strength and fracture-resistance by a claimed 49% compared to standard epoxy resin. Of course, the added safety of disc brakes means you're that much less likely to rely on the added fracture resistance.
The benefits of disc brakes are gaining momentum on the road, and Bianchi's Infinito CV Disc is the latest high-level frame to be offered with disc compatibility. The reasons are simple. Disc brakes aren't affected by damaged rims, they don't cause damage to rims, and you can run carbon rims without worrying about the loud engagement and low-power braking issues that have plagued wheelset innovation. Sure, you can generate enough power to lock-up your wheel with rim brakes, but using a disc lets you modulate that power more carefully, avoiding lock-ups and ensuring smooth, safe stops.

Wes the product manager did a superb job of helping me spec out a complete build of this frame, and thanks to the professional builders at CC, it came out flawless, and it was just what I was looking for. I was coming from a pretty decked out Specialized Roubaix with rim brakes. I was looking for something a little more compact in the chain stays, disc brakes, thru axles, tubeless, and di2. I was also wanting a endurance sportive type frame, but that leaned a little more aggressive. After riding the bike around 500 miles so far I can report that it is superb. I can only qualify the quality of this bike in my particular build. Reynolds Assault Wheels, Hutchinson tubeless 25 tires, enve stem, 3T aero bars, di2. It soaks up the bumps, springs to action when you get on it, and the stiffness is excellent in combination with the thru axles. I love the bike, and the build. If your looking for an amazing disc, thru axle frame in the endurance geometry category, you cant go wrong with this frame. The countervail seems real, its an incredibly smooth bike. I cant give it a head to head to the Roubaix, as its a very different component build. You cant go wrong with CC either, terrific service and build quality.
This is a great all around bike-well suited for all types of riding. It has a slightly more relaxed geometry so very comfortable in doing longer distances on the bike and the CV technology makes it very smooth on the road.
