The Bianchi Infinito is a truly revolutionary bike - it was in development for a full two years, followed by a year of road testing, including three weeks at the Giro d'Italia with sprinter Robbie Hunter, before being released to great acclaim in the cycling press.
The Infinito was developed by Bianchi to be the ultimate sportive bike - but they also wanted it to be just as capable as a road racing machine.
The adaptability of the Infinito was demonstrated by twice Tour of Flanders winner Stein Devolder selecting it to take on the 2012 race. The Infinito is incredibly stable over demanding courses and offers the riders the optimal riding position for long distances. As Belgian Devolder put it "Infinito is a first-rate bike as for stability, handling and reactivity. The absorption of vibrations is excellent: bike doesn't skip at all".
The design approach taken by Bianchi was to evolve race proven materials and construction techniques to deliver race-like performance allied to high levels of comfort.
While the Infinito does boast a slightly longer head-tube than either the B4P or CentoStrada ranges, it does not put the rider into the "sit up and twiddle" position that some other manufacturers have used in their sportive offerings. Instead it relies on technology to give the bike a super smooth ride that irons out bumpy British roads, while retaining a race-like position for great handling, responsiveness and long distance endurance.
The slightly longer headtube eliminates the need for excessive use of spacers under the stem, thus reducing unnecessary flex in the headtube, but is not so long that it forces the rider into an unduly upright position - for the vast majority of riders who want a fast comfortable bike, there is nothing to be gained from an overly high position as it can lead to too much weight being carried through the lower back and compromised power transfer and handling.
Key to the success of the Infinito is the use of ultra high modulus carbon fibre in the main tubeset - these have thin walls with a strengthening spline that runs through the tube centre enabling high levels of torsional stiffness combined with low weight. The result is a frameset that is only fractionally lighter than the SuperLeggera that tops the B4P range, while delivering comparable stiffness to weight ratios.
