The Bianchi Impulso E-road features a lightweight aluminium frame and excellent Shimano Ultegra group set giving superb gear shifting and braking. It also has a double chain-set giving the rider a nice wide range of gears. The bike is fitted with the Italian Polini motor and offers an incredible 70nm of torque, the battery sits discreetly in the down tube and at first glance the bike appears to be a conventional road bike. The Polini motor packs some punch for it’s lightweight at 2.85kg, the whole bike comes in at just over 16kg and the 490wh battery offers significant run times. With the mid mount motor and low centre of gravity the Impulso rides like a conventional road bike, at times you for forget that you are riding a pedal assist bike. Not everyone understands quite what the e-road bikes are about. Riding the Bianchi Impulso E-road you can reach maximum heart rate if you want and blast everywhere and uphills the sensation is incredible, you can quite literally ride at the same speed a s a professional cyclist or you can use the motor to provide as little assistance as you require. It’s fantastic for riders who live an a hilly area and find it hard to have an enjoyable ride as a result.
