    First Ride: Bianchi Aria 2018

       Words by Aaron Scott

       on 26/07/2017 11:48:38


    Review by Ian Halliwell. Ian is Deputy Manager at our Peterborough store and is a BG Fit Specialist.

    Aero TT influenced frame and fork at an affordable price, ideal for fast-paced riding and triathletes wishing to use an aero clip-on bar for longer events.


    Key Features

    • + Aero maximized frame and fork suitable for clip-on style additional bars.
    • + Affordable prices from £2,249.99
    • + Mechanical and electronic group-set compatible

    Bianchi’s latest bike introduces a completely new platform which borrows its aggressive race geometry from the Oltre XR4 superbike for a much more aero riding position. With a heavy focus on the frame’s aerodynamics, the Aria is purposely designed to be run with additional clip-on aero bars, making it the perfect choice for triathletes and club TT riders alike. This feature alone makes it pretty unique within its category, and with the Italian flare for gorgeous styling and Bianchi’s eye catching Celeste colours the Aria really stands out from the crowd.


    Riding the Aria for the first time, you immediately feel yourself dropping in to the lower profile geometry as your head lowers and your back flattens, giving the impression of a true race bike ready to eat up long straights and fast sweeping bends. Aggressive seating though it is, once pedalling along and reaching the higher speeds which this bike dictates, you soon settle into a comfortable fast stance. The ride feel and power delivery is on the right side of stiff, but not so much so that you feel uncomfortable from the very positive road feedback which it gives you.

    This bike’s strengths are definitely rooted in fast open roads, with great out of the saddle sprinting ability. Even without Bianchi’s Countervail vibration dampening technology, the Aria still performs excellently at keeping the rider fixed in an aerodynamic position from which you can gain the most from every pedal stroke.
