Today, Bianchi has released the latest iteration of the Specialissima. The Italian brand says it has begged the question 'Why can't light be aero too', with a new design philosophy which is said to come from WorldTour athletes' feedback.

The brand's climbing bike has taken a few steps closer to the Oltre XR4, with a pretty substantial re-design that Bianchi says improves aerodynamics 'without compromise' - and with a 6.6kg claimed full build, it has clearly still retained much of its feathery heritage.
