A new mountain bike is at the forefront for Bianchi. It unveils the Methanol SL Team Edition, the flag bearer for their 2010 MTB collection. To be used by the TX Active Bianchi Team this season, the bike comes in special colour schemes of blue that complements the jerseys used by the riders, as well as the San Marco saddles and Magura brakes.
The Bianchi Methanol SL Team Edition offers improved features by its ERC (embedded Reinforcement Construction) design that minimizes frame twisting and optimizes control. The carbon monocoque frame aims to be efficient, lightweight and sturdy. This led to the manufacturing components of the frame to be a mix from three differenet high modulus fibers. These are Toray 40T, 30T and T700. From them, the Triple Wall Tube (TWT) was made and incorporated into the frame.
Finally, other performance advantages are included like the FSA bars and stem, Magura Durin Race forks, Hutchinson Piranha/Cobra tubeless tires, Mavic Crossman SLR wheels, SRAM XX, Magura Marta SL Magnesium brakes and FSA K-Force Light chainset.
The Italian TX Active Bianchi Team rides proud on the new Methanol SL Team Edition and hopes to garner victories with the bike’s promising performance on the road.
