Bike Review: Bianchi Impulso All Road

Among high-end cyclists and racers, Bianchi’s signature Celeste-colored paint is a finish that warrants instant recognition. Currently the frame color used by the LottoNL-Jumbo WorldTour team, the eye-catching hue can now be seen on the dirt roads, as they have entered the world of dual-purpose bikes with the Impulso All Road.
Voted at last year’s Interbike as the Innovation Award winner, Bianchi has obviously done something right, as it turned many heads and gathered attention at the largest bicycle trade show in the U.S.
THE FRAME
The aluminum frame paired with the carbon fork stands out with the signature Bianchi Celeste color. The Impulso starts with a triple-butted frame that has gone through their THT (triple hydroformed tubing) process as well. Front- and rear-wheel clearance will allow up to a 40mm tire. The front fork is a flat-mount disc with a 12x100mm thru-axle, while the rear wheel has a 12x142mm thru-axle. The 12mm thru-axles both have twist handles, which means the scenario of fixing a flat and not having an Allen wrench to remove the axles is not a concern. The bottom bracket is a Shimano Press-Fit BB72.

Peloton Reviews the Major Jake

“The bike’s ’cross DNA comes though loud and clear”
 

 “The new Super Jake is about ‘cross first, with a little side of gravel for versatility.” 
Peloton has posted up their glowing review of our latest Super Jake on their website. They’re taken with its handling and fit. “It has a tight and responsive feel that many longer and taller gravel bikes lack with their endurance-inspired fit. The tight front end and taller bottom bracket make the bike ideal for quick changes of direction and tight switchbacks.” They praised its low BB drop as well. “The 67.5mm BB drop of the Major Jake makes mounting and dismounting less of a high-wire act.”
