Bianchi: 2017 Overview and Looking Towards 2018

Friday, 4 August 2017 09:40:18 Europe/London

Team Lotto NL Jumbo play a crucial role in Bianchi's road successIt has been a exceptional year for Bianchi in terms of adding to their cycling range and rider achievements: a year since the arrival of the Oltre XR4 road bike has seen it ridden to multiple stage wins, including the final stage of the Tour de France on the Champs Elysees; the introduction of the XR3 and the aero road bike the Aria for 2017/8; succes for Team Bianchi MTB riders, and much more.

The classic Sempre road bike is making a return for the 2018 season, whilst the XR3 will be released with the latest Shimano Ultegra R8000 groupset and the Aria will become available with disc brakes. We are really excited about the triathlon version of the XR4, coming equipped with Dura Ace and Zipp 404 cabon wheels.

2018 will see Bianchi step up its range of electric bikes available in the UK, including the Edoardo e-bike, the Ultegra Disc E-road bike, electric mountain bike range and city e-bikes, such as the Manhatten and E-Dance vintage-style city bike.

It is all hotting up to be a very exciting and promising year ahead for Bianchi.

Stage Win for Bianchi & Primoz Roglic

Thursday, 20 July 2017 10:25:40 Europe/London

Primoz Roglic Stage VictoryTeam LottoNL-Jumbo's Primoz Roglic demolished the field in yesterdays stage 17 of the Tour De France, riding his Bianchi  XR4 aero road bike like a man on a mission. Sheer guts and determination saw the young Slovenian rider jettison away from the rest of the riders with 30km still to go. And nobody could get near him after that!

A brave move, one that doesn't always pay off for riders who attempt such an manouvre, but when it does, it makes the rider a herioc winner.

Bravo Primo, bravo Team Lotto NL and bravo Bianchi!

Bianchi XR3 with the New Ultegra

Friday, 9 June 2017 15:04:09 Europe/London

Bianchi Announce the Release of the XR3 with new UltegraA couple of weeks ago Lakes Cycles decided to try something different, we began offering custom build Bianchi XR3's with a Shimano Ultegra groupset. Why? Because Bianchi weren't doing it and it looked liked nobody else was either. Well, that has all changed with the announcement this week by Bianchi that they are going to be releasing their new Oltre XR3 road bike with the newest Ultegra groupset.

Shimano have only just announced the release of their new Ultegra series so it seems like a marriage made in heaven pairing up with the new Bianchi Oltre XR3!

Bianchi Via Nirone 7

Wednesday, 31 May 2017 16:21:37 Europe/London

Via Nirone 7, Milan, Bianchi's 1st shopVia Nirone 7 is the address where Edoardo Bianchi had his first ever workshop. Bianchi honour these humble origins with a sub-£1,000 road. But don't let the price fool you; this is a road bike that carries with it a special place in Bianchi's hearts and, therefore, it receives the attention and quality that it deserves.

The Via Nirone 7 is made from a triple hydroformed, lightweight aluminium and fitted with Italian Campagnolo groupsets as well as Shimano. Available for both male and female riders. The endurance geometry of the frame results in the VN7 being very comfortable over long distances and, despite its price, the VN7 comes in at little over 9.7kg, which is fairly impressive.
