Game Changer! At 78gr, Bianchi's Specialissima frame changes the game in the ultralight frame category thanks to the use of MSC's patented Countervail integrated vibration cancelling system for cycling, developed for NASA by Materials Sciences Corporation. The new Bianchi's Countervail ultralight carbon formula is specifically tuned to smooth out the inherent nervousness of ultralight frames. Countervail cancels vibrations that affect performance and transfers your full energy into power. A super fast and reactive climbing machine with unparalleled control and precision in the descents. The Shimano Dura Ace group combines minimalist design, high-tech materials and perfect ergonomics. By using carbon, titanium and ceramics this group reaches unmatched performance. The Specialissima monocoque frame is processed from a combination of Hi-Modulus carbon fibers with Countervail layers. With Bianchi's special carbon nano-technology its possible to place nanoparticles in the matrix in order to improve the cohesion between the fibers. Air pockets and micro-cracking are avoided specifically, maximizing the life expectancy and the fracture resistance of the frame. With special techniques excellent stiffness are achieved on the frame. Additional with WMP (Wrinkless Molding Process) only wrinkless layers were achieved. This technique is applied before the actual processing and provides more structure and process efficiency. A special viscoelastic carbon intermediate layer is used exclusively for Bianchi. This patented Countervail System has already proven at NASA and in addition to increasing the damping effect the rigidity and durability of the entire frame increased. This provides less fatigue to the driver and keeps him ready for the final sprint. A tapered aero headtube 1-1/8 to 1.4 improve the rigidity of the front part, and reduce the weight. The aerodynamic headtube section is inspired by Aquila CV's profiles. The lightweight, tapered full carbon fork (34 g) comes with straight blades, Countervail material and got a extremely reactive geometry. The FSA BB386 bottom bracket standard, in which the ball bearings are pressed directly into the frame, and the voluminous chainstays provide a huge drive stiffness so actually every used watt is convert in propulsion. The internal cable routing fully implemented all cables in the frame with positive effects on the appearance and low maintenance. The derailleur hanger is replaceable and the dropouts are made of full carbon with metal inserts to ensure maximum durability.
