Cobblestones Test for Team Belkin Infinito CV

New performance tests of the innovative Countervail technology in readiness for the classics.

Bianchi and Belkin Procycling Team run a performance road test with the innovative Infinito CV on the Paris-Roubaix’s cobblestones last week, in view of next spring classics campaign and stage-5 of 2014 Tour de France.

Team Belkin’s Sep Vanmarcke, Lars Boom, Maarten Tjallingii and Maarten Wynants tested the new Bianchi’s Infinito CV carbon frame, the best racing machine to tackle a bumpy road surface like the cobblestones. Innovative Bianchi’s Countervail® vibration cancelling technology immediately cancels the road vibrations while increasing frame rigidity. The result is a significant reduction of the muscle fatigue and improved riding control.


Bianchi and Team Belkin’s performance staff focused the first day on materials testing with different bicycle set-up while the second day the riders faced an intense and long-distance training.

Bianchi was returned positive feedbacks from Team Belkin’s riders. “I am impressed by the stability of the bike on the cobbles. Infinito CV is also really reactive both on the cobbles and asphalt. I noticed a decrease in fatigue after a long and intense training riding Infinito CV on the pave: you can really feel the difference with the Countervail. It is undoubtedly a valued asset on Belgian cobbles” Lars Boom commented. “This bike is more stable and I feel more confident also thanks to the specific endurance geometry” 2013 Paris-Roubaix podium finisher Sep Vanmarcke stated. Maarten Tjallingii: “I really felt the vibration cancelling effect: the usual bumps on the handlebar were almost absent, and I had no pain on my arms and shoulders”.
