New Bianchi Oltre RC 2023 reviews opinions pros and cons of the new Bianchi racing bike
Finally Bianchi presented the new Bianchi Oltre 2023 range, a completely new racing bike and a decisive evolutionary step compared to the past.
Three distinct models, with moderate weights, but with a sure aesthetic impact.
The new "aerodynamic fins" characterize the front part of the bicycle, emphasized as a technical discovery, of dubious personal utility, but we think they will be the "fashion" of the next aero racing bikes.
In this the Bianchi Oltre 2023 is innovative and opens a new chapter of aero racing bikes.
We doubt, however, of their real effectiveness, too small to be able to generate a real downforce, or a real flow of air.
But everything does, someone said ...
On the other hand, the comparison between the new Bianchi Oltre RC and the previous Oltre XR4 is pitiless for the older bike, whose project, indeed, is somewhat dated.
Despite everything, the prices remain high, but not exaggerated.
A point in favor of Bianchi ...
The entry level model Bianchi Oltre 2023 is undoubtedly heavy, but with a sure aesthetic impact, the other models are to be considered for the exclusive use of competitions.
Compared to other competitors, now Bianchi presents a real and valid alternative, with a good value for money and safe effectiveness.
Among the shortcomings, the weight of the frame is not very low and high in the access version, the basic price, however high, the reduced versatility typical of this type of bicycles.
Overall a good aero racing bike, it was missing from the Bianchi catalog.
