As one of the oldest bicycle manufactures in the world, if you’re searching for a bike created by experienced professionals, it’s hard to go wrong with Bianchi bikes. Indeed, they are one of AW Cycles longest standing road bike brands and when it comes to the pinnacle of road bikes, Italian brands (such as Bianchi) have it all; blending beautiful design with technology.


Who/What Is Bianchi?

Starting in 1885, with over 130 years of history, Bianchi is one of the leading brands in the international cycling sector. Indeed, Bianchi is one of the world’s oldest bicycle manufacturing companies that is still in existence. Additionally, throughout the modern era, Bianchi has been associated with both Tour de France winners and Giro d’Italia winners. All of which is a testament to the quality of Bianchi cicycles.

Traditionally, Bianchi bicycles are painted in a turquoise colour known as Celeste, which is sometimes referred to as Bianchi Green. This distinct colour further adding to the character and stylish design of a Bianchi bicycle.


Bianchi Bikes From AW Cycles

If you’re searching for a bicycle suitable for a variety of tasks such as keeping fit, riding on a racing track, or cyclo-cross; we recommend browsing through a range of road bikes, one such manufacturer of road bikes is Bianchi bikes.

Unlike some mainstream road bike manufacturers, Bianchi focuses on the frame of the bike. Indeed, instead of trying to get the best group set for the money, instead they incorporate military grade smart carbon fibre; creating a vibration cancelling composite called countervail.

You could also create your own customised road bike with Tavolozza. This enables you to have a have a custom painted Specialissima or the Oltre XR4; featuring Italian design, countervail technology, and your own colour scheme.


What Is Countervail Technology?

Some manufacturers use passive solutions such as rubber inserts, however thanks to the integrated carbon countervail system used by Bianchi, they can eliminate up to 90% of vibrations whilst also stiffening and strengthening the frame.

If you’re unsure about the reliability of such as system, do not worry because the integrated carbon countervail system is tested in the extreme environment of NASA's aerospace operations.

There are numerous advantages of a road bike that uses countervail technology, for example the countervail maximises ride control and handling under both normal and extreme vibration loads. It is also responsible for increased rigidity and peak power output over long distances. This means reduced muscle fatigue and increased energy savings in distance rides.

If you’re interested in a bike with Countervail technology, you can choose from the following bicycles.


  • Specialissima.
  • Oltre XR4.
  • Oltre XR3.
  • Infinito CV.
  • Infinito CV DAMA BIANCA.
  • Aquila CV.
