Bianchi Carbon Disc, Thruaxle 12x100mm
700c / 29″
from $950 to $2,000
From legendary Italian brand Bianchi, the Via Nirone 7 is one of the best budget gravel bikes available for under 1000$. The name comes from the address of Bianchi’s first workshop in Milan, Via Nirone 7 indeed.
A responsive and rigid frame in triple-butted 6061-series aluminum throughout with hydroformed sections is complemented by a carbon fork, of course designed for disk brakes.
Driven by a Shimano Tiagra groupset, it gives the rider 20 gears with a 50x34T chainring and a classic 11-34T cassette, a very standard range of gears.
This gravel-road bike is designed for mid to long-distance rides, the wheelbase is long enough to ensure comfort and light load handling, but the geometry is still pretty performative, with a relatively low rider position, a short and reactive fork rake. Moreover, the Bianchi Via Nirone is quite lightweight at only 9.7kg (full built, M-Size).
The fork is built using K-Vid technology, kevlar inserts are interwoven into the fork to eliminate and filter the vibrations coming from the road surface. This is supposed to improve comfort on longer rides, making riding less tiring… and surprise, it actually works.
The maximum tire-clearance is 40mm (1.57″), enough to grind the thickest gravel – although still far from a proper Adventure Bike.
The Bianchi Via Nirone All Road 7 comes in 4 different builds:
Via Nirone All Road 7 Sora
Via Nirone All Road 7 105
Via Nirone All Road 7 Claris
Via Nirone All Road 7 GRX400
As it’s easy to get, they mostly differ for the Shimano group-set choice.
