Bianchi shows Ferrari collaboration bikes at Eurobike

Published August 30, 2017

FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany (BRAIN) — Bianchi launched its "Bianchi for Scuderia Ferrari" project on Wednesday at Eurobike. The collaboration between the two Italian brands initially includes a new road model model, SF01 and the Triathlon Concept bike, which features disc brakes.

The project is a collaboration between the two companies' R&D and design departments and will eventually lead to "luxury" editions of road, mountain bike, e-bike, city-fitness and kids bikes.

The SF01 is a road racing bike with a 780-gram frame built with Bianchi's Countervail vibration cancelling technology. It will be offered with Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 or Campagnolo Super Record EPS groups. The paint combines Ferrari's original colors: "Rosso Corse" and "Nero Setoso." SF01 frames are handpainted in Italy.

The SF01 bikes also are outfitted with the Astute One saddle,  made of 3k carbon, the same used for Ferrari single-seaters' seats, with matt carbon finish. The saddle weighs 94 grams.  Astute also manufactured the bike's anti-vibration Luxury Black handlebar tape. Wheels are Fulcrum Speed 40C Carbon, with Scuderia Ferrari custom graphics and carbon hubs, shod with P ZERO Velo clinchers from Pirelli.

The Triathlon Concept bike design was inspired by Ferrari's Formula 1 cars. The company showed a mock up of the bike at Eurobike, without revealing details. The company said the frame will use Countervail technology, and will have an integrated disc brake system that is is said to maximize aerodynamics with the brakes.
