The Bianchi Aria is a sibling to the Oltre range, though more inexpensive. It's a little heavier and the spec is lower, but it shares much of the same DNA.
It's highly responsive, reacting instantly to the power you put down. The trickle down features from the Oltre line and the Aquila, Bianchi's TT bike, mean that aero is the name of the game here. It's a sturdy ride with race geometry, so won't be for everyone, but those looking for a mid priced aero race machine will be smiling.
Campag's resurrected Centaur groupset has had some really great reviews, and Bianchi also offer a 105 or Ultegra spec, all at differing price points.
We swapped out the tyres, which is almost always a good idea on out-of-the-box completes, and we rather like the way the tan wall Vittoria Corsa G+ look with the celeste paint.
