Bianchi Intenso 2019 Carbon road bikes designed in Italy using the most advanced Carbon
The frame offers a sprung, compliant feel that makes short work of
weather-scarred tarmac:its judged balance of comfort and speed ensures that
it’s one of the stars of this edition of Bike of the Year. The give in the
frame is totally predictable, and as soon as we adjusted to its charms we found
ourselves pushing the Intenso to ever greater cornering speeds and
flick-of-the-wrist rapid directional changes.
The design approach taken by Bianchi in designing the Intenso was to take well
proven materials and construction techniques to deliver race-like performance
allied to high levels of comfort with a relaxed riding position.
While the Intenso does boast a slightly longer head-tube than either the B4P or
HoC ranges, it does not put the rider into the “sit up and twiddle”
position that some other manufacturers have used in their sportive models.
Instead it relies on materials and carbon lay-up techniques to give the bike a
smooth ride that irons out road clatter, while retaining a geometry that offers
great handling, responsiveness and long distance endurance.
