Bianchi has announced its latest addition to what it is describing as a 'splintered' gravel bike market. The Italian brand says its new Impulso RC is the "highest form of Bianchi's racing spirit, applied to gravel," with its flagship model weighing a claimed 8.1kg for a full build. 

The new gravel race bike comes complete with aero attributes borrowed from the Bianchi Oltre RC, and an all-new carbon cockpit. Bianchi also says it has borrowed knowledge from the world of cross-country mountain biking in order to create a more progressive geometry.
