Bianchi goes all-in on ebikes with new E-Omnia range

Bianchi E-Omnia range covers touring, mountain bike and city models

Bianchi E-Omnia range

Bianchi’s new E-Omnia electric bike range has been designed for different types of rider; with city load luggers, touring-oriented bikes and mountain bikes, including a full suspension model and a hardtail.

Five different alloy frame configurations are available but all are powered by the same Bosch Performance Line CX motor with a hefty 85Nm of torque, support levels of up to 340 per cent of the rider’s input and two integrated battery options: 500Wh and 625Wh. Some models are also available with anti-lock braking.

All the Bianchi E-Omnia models integrate Bosch’s display unit into the stem.

Bianchi has looked to up rider visibility with integrated 40 Lux front and rear lights, which are said to be visible at 500 metres, illuminate the road up to 100m ahead of the rider and give side-on visibility. 

As well as the two standard and five ‘signature’ paint options, you can use Bianchi’s 3D configurator to choose from 8,500 possible custom colour and equipment configurations.

Bianchi E-Omnia City range

Bianchi E-Omnia C Type
The Bianchi E-Omnia C Type is designed for city riders, with a range of clip-on accessories.

Two of the E-Omnia’s five model range are designed for city riding: the C Type and T Type. 

The C Type has a step-through frame and an upright seating position, and there’s a choice of 10-speed Shimano Deore or belt-drive 5-speed Shimano Nexus hub gear drivetrains.

The bike features an integrated rear carrier for load-lugging that’s welded to the seatstays, which also houses the integrated rear light. There’s a range of panniers and a child carrier available to match, too. 

City essentials such as a kickstand, mudguards and a chainguard come as standard. 

Bianchi says that riders can expect a range of up to 110km from the large 625Wh battery.

Bianchi E-Omnia Bosch motor
All the E-Omnia bikes are powered by the Bosch Performance Line CX motor with 85Nm torque.

The T Type includes women’s and men’s frame options and is designed with commuting, fitness and pleasure riding in mind, according to Bianchi.

The bike has a front suspension fork with 120mm travel, a range of up to 195km and an option for ABS braking. Drivetrain choices are the same as the C Type – Shimano Deore or a Gates belt drive option.
