Bianchi Sprint & Sprint Disc 2020 | First Look & Review
Sprint was initially launched in the 1970s, the original Sprint was loved by riders of the time, and is much admired still as an iconic piece of cycling’s history. The new 2020 Sprint is created in the same mould as its predecessor – it’s a racing carbon bike for those new to the world of competitive road cycling. To offer a greater flexibility of use, Bianchi has produced both a disc brake and rim brake version of the Sprint frame.
Bianchi Sprint 2020 | Frame Technology
Releasing the 2020 Sprint, Bianchi have added an accessible option to the racing category, created for those starting out on their journey in competition. The carbon monocoque frame is constructed around a racing-specific geometry, whether you are consistently tackling big distances in sportives and gran fondos, or actively entering the world of criterium and road racing, this bike will carry you forwards as you progress.
The carbon fork delivers low weight for graceful climbing and agile handling in the turns. Small but important details like the aerodynamic profile of the head tube act as further evidence of the Sprint’s elite racing DNA. The 2020 Bianchi Sprint disc version can accommodate tires up to 700x32 while caliper model is compatible with 700x28 tires; enhances comfort and grip without affecting rolling efficiency or speed. The frame features internal cable routing, keeping the body of the bike clean and pared back. It comes in two colour versions: celeste and black.
