As the only new road bike from Bianchi for 2012, the Impulso is an exciting machine to watch for. Aside from its good looks, the bike also guarantees a stable ride. Weld texture is removed from the headtube making the increased front end stiffness smoother and prettier.
Its Triple Hydroformed frame features hydroformed top and head tubes, welded and combined together into a monocoque structure before a second hydroforming process. The bike’s components include FSA cockpit, Shimano Ultegra gray compact drivetrain, Hutchinson tires, and Fulcrum wheels.
A part of the long distance C2C Coast 2 Coast lineup, the 2012 Bianchi Impulso Road Bike has both positive and negative aspects. While the ride and handling are stiff and stable, the heavy wheel and kit tends to give dull responses.
