Bianchi ARIA Centaur 2018 bike designed in Italy is a fast performance-oriented
aero road bike. Built for lovers of speed, it is the perfect partner for your
Bianchi's objective has been to extend their range of aero road bikes with an
all-new model based on a highly aerodynamic frame-fork system, equipped for any
road race, and easily set-up for triathlon events.
To achieve fast rides from full aerodynamic performance it’s important that
both the bike and the rider are as aerodynamically efficient as possible.
At Bianchi, while they feed the learnings from research and development across
all ranges into new models, the ARIA’s advanced aerodynamic design has been
heavily inspired by their extensive wind-tunnel testing and cooperation with
Bianchi pro riders.
For the bike, full aerodynamic performance means the shape of the tubes’
profiles and their structural combination to cheat the wind’s resistance,
resulting in the lowest drag possible.
For the rider, full aerodynamic performance means creating a position that
allows for the least air resistance – this can only be achieved with a frame
and fork geometry that allows for an advanced tuck position, and an ideal
Aero frame plus aero rider position equals Full Aero.
As well as an effective high performance road machine, the Bianchi ARIA shows
its fast-pace versatility when it comes to triathlon. ARIA’s aggressive
geometry lends itself perfectly to the high-speed race performance demanded in
Getting the required horizontal-back aerodynamic tuck position for fast tri
bike leg is easy to achieve with ARIA’s triathlon configuration. Just clip-on
aero bars (not included), set the bars’ stack height if required and
adjust saddle height and angle, and ARIA instantly becomes triathlon ready.
Road or tri, the ARIA is ready to help you deliver your best.
