Another new machine that is bred for cyclocross racing is the Zurigo, which is released by Bianchi for 2012. Though made from hydroformed 7000 series aluminum rather than carbon fiber, the machine has all the same details of performance. Its build kit is made of a full 10-speed drivetrain from SRAM Rival.

Although the ovalized top tube of the bike is usually overlooked, this detail is very important. A wider cross section is created by squashing this top tube in the vertical plane so it is more comfortable to shoulder the bike.
