Bianchi Oltre XR2 and XR2 Disc launched for 2014

In brief: updates to road and mountain bike range

Bianchi have launched two new road bikes for 2014, the Oltre XR2 and Oltre XR2 Disc. These two machines are the standouts in what looks to be a major overhaul of the Bianchi range for next season, with most of the road and mountain bikes being new.

The Oltre XR2 is specced with Shimano Dura-Ace 9000 and Fulcrum Racing Speed XLR carbon tubulars, while the Oltre XR2 Disc comes with SRAM Red 22 hydraulic shifting with FSA and Vision components.

Also on the road side there are updates to the Infinito CV, Sempre Pro, Intenso, Impulso, Via Nirone 7 and Dama Bianca range.

Off road, the highlights are the 27.5in eLECT Ethanol and the all new Jab. We spotted an interesting new Magura electronic suspension lockout system, dubbed DLO.

Cyclocross soon became a winter staple, and has remained his favourite form of competition. Robin has always loved the technical aspect of building and maintaining bikes, and several years working in a good bike shop only amplified that. Ten years as a Forensic Photographer followed, honing his eye for detail in pictures and words.
