Bianchi is the world’s oldest bicycle-making company still in existence, founded in 1885 by Eduardo Bianchi in Milan, Italy. No doubt, Bianchi is the pioneer of bicycle development since the beginning. They invented equal-sized wheels with pneumatic rubber tires in 1895, first bicycle ever featuring a cardan joint transmission in 1901 and front brake system in 1913.
Throughout Bianchi’s 130-year history, the Specialissima name has represented the pinnacle of the Italian legend’s road machine line-up. The ”Specialissima” was introduced in late 1950s as successor of famous ”Campione del mondo” model and remains Bianchi’s top model till today.
Proudly presenting another Bianchi‘s iconic racing machine, the Specialissima Superleggera which dates back to October 1983. Beautiful frameset is made of superb Columbus SL tubing featuring extraordinary details like aero-shaped seat stays with Bianchi sign, ‘B’ cut-outs on the head lug, ‘B’ pantograph fork crown among the others.
