The Bianchi ARIA Disc is a fast performance-oriented aero road bike. Built for lovers of speed, it is the perfect partner for your road challenges. The addition of Disc brakes to the range makes for greater confidence in all conditions with the additional benefit of improved stiffness at the axle for even greater handling.
Bianchi's objective has been to extend their range of aero road bikes with an all-new model based on a highly aerodynamic frame-fork system, equipped for any road race, and easily set-up for triathlon events. Borrowing, like the Oltre before it from the Aquilla TT frame and extensive wind-tunnell testing with the pros, the Aria brings these aero technologies into an affordable realm.
To achieve true speed from full aerodynamic performance it is important that both the bike and the rider are as aerodynamically efficient as possible. At Bianchi, the results and developments from research and development across all ranges are fed into new models and the ARIA’s advanced aerodynamic design has been heavily inspired by extensive wind-tunnel testing and cooperation with Bianchi pro riders.
For the bike, full aerodynamic performance means the shape of the tubes’ profiles and their structural combination to cheat the wind’s resistance, resulting in the lowest drag possible.
For the rider, full aerodynamic performance means creating a position that allows for the least air resistance – this can only be achieved with a frame and fork geometry that allows for an advanced tuck position, and an ideal racing geometry. With these two fundamental principles married together it is possible to achieve what Bianchi describe as Full Aero.
