The all-new Orso was designed for the rider who is ready to tackle the greatest variety of rides from commuting to centuries, long distance touring to backroad bikepacking, and every potential adventure in-between.
The Orso is the logical evolution of the legendary Volpe that pioneered the All Road / Adventure category over 30 years ago. It remains true to the smooth and stable ride that Bianchi’s own Chromolite steel is known for. It extends the Volpe’s versatility by adding larger tire clearance, frame bosses for more racks and cages, and the latest in disc brake technology.
The Orso’s geometry is neither road bike nor cyclocross bike – it delivers the best of both styles. We achieve this by smartly designing the Orso frame geometry to be “long and low” for greater stability on rough surfaces.
The Orso's taller, tapered head tube features a slightly slackened angle to offer responsive and stable steering while providing relief to the rider's shoulders. This is especially important when the bike is loaded with frame bags and panniers or buffeted by strong crosswinds. Steering stays on point thanks to our thru-axle equipped fork.
The chainstays of the Orso are the longest of our steel models. This specification allows us to keep the bike balanced and achieve 42mm tire clearance. Front and rear flat mount disc brakes make quick work of scrubbing speed should any of your great ideas turn bad.
The Orso frame has 5 locations to mount water bottle cages. Mounts are located at each fork leg, seat tube, downtube, and the underside of the downtube. The fork bosses and rear drops can be used as mounting points for racks and fenders.
The tubeless-ready wheelset on the Orso will keep punctures at bay so you can keep moving forward. With approved tubeless rim tape, stems, sealant, and tires, you can travel worry-free on the Orso.
The Orso 105 features a carbon fiber fork, Shimano drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes, and Kenda Flintridge 40mm tires.
