As the top model in Bianchi's C2C Coast 2 Coast lineup, the Infinito CV was designed to cover long distances with maximum speed and minimum fatigue. This isn't a touring bike rather, it rethinks traditional assumptions about what it means to be a racing bike by focusing on a less stressed rider position and a more relaxed geometry. For the Infinito CV, this was done by extending the frame's head tube height by around 1. 5cm and then lengthening the wheelbase. We're seeing similar developments across the industry as pros like Belkin's Vanmarcke, who opted for the Infinito CV for Roubaix in 2014, are trading harsh rides and painful aerodynamic contortions for a combination of frame shape and materials that reduce rider fatigue while maintaining efficient power transfer. The geometry's focus on rider comfort is complemented by Bianchi's strategic use of vibration damping Countervail technology. Countervail, a patented material developed by Materials Science Corporation MSC and Bianchi, is a viscoelastic carbon layer that's sandwiched between the standard, high modulus carbon layers to devour vibration and road noise without compromising stiffness. The Infinito CV Disc also enjoys the same Carbon Nano Technology used in the construction of the range topping Oltre XR. This process uses nano scaled particles to reduce the microscopic gaps between the resin and the carbon, increasing strength and fracture resistance by a claimed 49% compared to standard epoxy resin. Of course, the added safety of disc brakes means you're that much less likely to rely on the added fracture resistance. The benefits of disc brakes are slowly converting the road side, and Bianchi's Infinito CV Disc is the latest venerable, high level frame to be offered with disc compatibility. The reasons are simple. Disc brakes aren't affected by damaged rims, they don't cause damage to rims, and you can run carbon rims without worrying about the loud engagement and low power braking issues tha...
