Infinito CV Disc Ultegra Road Bike
While team Jumbo-Visma may opt for the aggressive, aerodynamic, and ultra-stiff Oltre XR4 for most of the race season, when it comes to the rougher roads of the Spring Classics, they reach for the added comfort and versatility of the Infinito CV. The frame's more relaxed position with its slightly taller head tube and longer wheelbase provide increased comfort and extra tire clearance, but since it's still a race bike, after all, it maintains efficient power transfer and still has some aero touches. Equipped with the power and control of hydraulic disc brakes, Shimano's workhorse Ultegra mechanical drivetrain, and Bianchi's vibration-canceling Countervail technology, this steed is ready to guide you through big mileage days, conquer the roughest roads, or toe the line of your favorite Gran Fondo.
This latest version of the Infinito Disc features redesigned frame shapes for more comfort and tire clearance (up to 32mm) that works with its endurance-specific geometry for all-day comfort. Longer chainstays help smooth the ride, and a taller, aero headtube provides a position that is efficient, yet comfortable. Soaking up the road imperfections is Bianchi's exclusive Countervail’s vibration canceling technology. Countervail reduces muscle fatigue and improves control for better overall performance, especially on chipseal roads and over cobblestones. This material, developed by Materials Science Corporation (MSC) and created for NASA, 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 new Infinito Disc is also engineered to be also more aero by using a frame specific carbon seatpost with an adjustable setback. The bike is also compatible with the Metron 5D aero handlebar if you are looking for an integrated design and sleek aesthetic of a bar/stem combo.
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 stopping 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.

Purchased the Bianchi Infinito CV Ultegra with Disc brakes in late September 2020 and was impressed from the start. As an aging athlete who has undergone three back operations in the past 15 years, I was seeking a high performance bike without the severe bike geometries of most mid/high range of road bikes. I choose the Bianchi because of its build quality, the CV vibration dampening material incorporated into the carbon frame, and the relaxed geometry. Since the bike's arrival, I've completed about a dozen 40-60 mile trecks and I am (physically and mentally relieved that I do not have to rely on Motrin products after each ride. To those considering a new road bike, I would definitely suggest a close review of the Bianchi line-up due to their high quality builds, solid performance, high comfort, and eye-grabbing appeal. I would be remiss if I didn't mention the easy and professional manner Competitive Cyclist handled my sale. Since the bike purchase, I've also purchased other components, and have been very pleased with their pricing and speed of delivery.

2020 has been rough. Hours spent in a windowless basement trying to remember the feeling of finishing a group ride at the coffee shop and enjoying conversation without so much as a thought of the potentially lethal spray of fine particulates emitting from my buddy's maskless face. It truly is a magical time to be alive. This bike has been the silver (Celeste?) lining to an otherwise awful year. I took the Infinito home with me the week before lockdown, and I was forced to hang onto it for a little longer than I had originally anticipated. Try not to feel too badly for me. If you're new to the world of road bikes, I'll introduce Bianchi with a car metaphor. If a wild, futuristic Pinarello is analogous to a Lamborghini, and a classically tubed, gorgeous Colnago is akin to a Ferrari, Bianchi is Alfa Romeo. Steeped in tradition without being stuck in the past, and aesthetically motived without losing sight of performance. A Bianchi is easily identifiable by its signature Celeste blue-green coat, but the real magic lies a layer or two deeper (literally.) Compared to its traditionally racy sibling, the Oltre XR4, the Infinito is slightly more upright, compliant, and relaxed. It was designed with the cobbles of Roubaix and Flanders in mind; but it's certainly not a one-trick pony. A Spring campaign in Belgium is brutal, but the machines that are developed to cope usually end up striking the ideal balance for an amateur rider. Most of us don't have the luxury of daily rides on flawless roads, or the mental ability to give up our daily rides during harsh winters, and as a result, an out-and-out race rig with narrow clearances and an unyieldingly rigid chassis won't honestly serve us as well as a more tempered option like the Infinito. I use the word tempered deliberately. The Infinito is not a mushy 'endurance' bike that sacrifices lively mannerisms and an efficient character at the alter of vaguely-defined comfort. This is a bike that was designed to race. It's stiff enough to carry you through a street sign sprint, and can be built light enough to eat up mountain miles like a champ, but it doesn't ever feel dangerously sharp or numbingly rough. The handling is perfectly balanced, and the CounterVail layers built into the carbon really do work; lending a discernable smoothness that I've yet to experience on anything other than another CV-equipped Bianchi. It will even negotiate some light gravel courtesy of its 32mm tire clearance. The competition might beat it on price, but I guarantee none of them are going to look as good, ride as smooth, or steal your heart in the same way that the Infinito will. The Infintio is a truly great bike, and it was a wonderful partner to carry me through an otherwise dark time. I spent every day counting down the hours until I could sneak away on my favorite local routes and enjoy the one aspect of my life that had remained the same. I'm going to miss it badly. Amore Infinito.

Does Bianchi have a sizing guide for this bike? Wondering what size for someone 5’ 6”.
