BIANCHI OLTRE RC Complete bike with Quarq powermeter
The new top-of-the-range model in Bianchi's aero racing collection, the Oltre RC has been designed for the most extreme athletes looking for maximum speed. The Oltre RC introduces the hyperbike concept. Created for World Tour racing and professionals, the Oltre RC dominates airflow, thus reducing aerodynamic resistance and increasing the speed of the overall bike-athlete system.
Engineered for the most demanding and most ambitious racers, the Oltre is nothing short of a revolution in the way we think about aerodynamics. The Oltre platform is led by the Oltre RC hyperbike and complemented by the Oltre Pro and Oltre models.
A pioneering system that not just manages, but dominates the drag. This means great performance in a dead-straight line, but when the angle of the wind changes to either side, the bike truly comes alive. The Air Deflector (Patent Pending) can be found on RC and Pro models of the Oltre.
The proprietary design of the cockpit reduces drag. It does this with the integration of the handlebar and stem, and strategically-placed Aero Profiles along the top of the bar. These Aero Profiles are placed to reflect the flow of air over your bars and offer an additional marginal aerodynamic gain.
To create an aero bike that controls airflow, we borrowed ideas from innovative technology sectors, including automotive, aerospace, and architecture. The goal is to lead the air to very specific areas of the frame, ensuring airflow is as close to the surfaces of the bike and rider as possible.
The far-thinking design is enhanced by a judicious balance of paint and exposed carbon, creating a fearsome racing aesthetic that never for a second compromise on the overall weight of the Oltre.
