The new Impulso All Road best suits the needs of riders looking to enjoy endless miles — whether their excursions take them up fire roads, across gravel roads, or a bit of under-biking on the local mountain bike trails.
One of Bianchi's best selling road bikes is the Impulso. From reputable gran fondo events to the brutally rough, cobblestone raced roads at Paris – Roubaix, the Impulso has done it all. With accolades like that, it made perfect sense to expand upon the Impulso’s frame technology of THT, B.A.T., and include front and rear rack mounts with larger tire clearance.
Retaining the hallmark Bianchi ride quality isn’t easy. Bianchi met this benchmark by utilizing THT - Triple Hydroformed Tubing and triple butted aluminum tubing. This provides the rider a light weight and efficient pedaling platform, increased frame strength, and steering response. The Impulso All Road’s stiff downtube and bottom bracket region make quick work of each pedal stroke. The tall chainstay profiles and thru-axles keep the rear end tracking straight and resist pedal induced twisting as you out sprint others to the next brevet check point. The full carbon fork allows you to fit a 40mm tire. The frame’s rear end accepts a 40mm tire as well. At the rear of the bike, B.A.T. - Bianchi Active Technology allows vertical compliance and different stiffness behaviors under varying directional forces, without wasting power transfer to the rear wheel.
The compact bend handlebar on the Impulso All Road has a distinct flare at the bottom of the drops. This allows you to stay comfortable as you hold the wide handlebar and open up your chest for better breathing. On your next overnight bike trip, this flare lets you mount under the bar up to a 20 inch stuff sack. That’s more than enough space to carry your sleeping pad, single person tent, and a compressible jacket.
Traction and pinch flat protection are paramount. For this, when it comes to off road riding, mountain bikers unanimously use tubeless tires. The Impulso All Road gives you that convenience with its Reparto Corse tubeless-ready wheel set. The All Road rims are laced to sealed bearing hubs of comparable Shimano SLX-level weight specifications. With approved tubeless rim tape, stems, sealant, and tires, you can travel worry free on the Impulso All Road.
A reliable parts package from Shimano anchors the Impulso All Road for your riding needs. Compact gearing and a wide range cassette make quick work of the flattest or steep pitched roads that come your way.
