Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Bianchi Sprint. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

11 reasons to buy

  • The Bianchi Sprint has a high-quality carbon frame.
  • Testers were pleased that Bianchi offers the bike with rim or disc brake options.
  • Builds with Shimano and SRAM components are available to riders, ensuring most componentry preferences are met.
  • There is clearance for tires up to 32mm on the Sprint. With mudguards, this is reduced to 28mm. Tires of this size offer riders increased stability.
  • The 73° head tube angle and dropped seat stays place riders in a comfortable yet aggressive position, making the bike an all-arounder.
  • The bike has a wide gear range that makes the Sprint a capable climber.
  • The bike is available in sizes 44-59. This gives sufficient size options for riders, both tall and short.
  • The size 44 is small enough for teenage riders to utilize.
  • The stiff carbon frame promotes efficient power transfer. This allows riders the ability to maintain speed and accelerate with ease.
  • Riders agree that the Bianchi Sprint is affordable for a carbon road bike.
  • The short wheelbase makes the bike nimble and easy to maneuver.

3 reasons not to buy

  • The Shimano wheels used on some builds of the bike are heavy. Experts suggest upgrading to lighter wheels.
  • The cockpit is built up with alloy componentry on all stock builds. A carbon cockpit would reduce the bike’s weight.
  • This is not the lightest or most aerodynamic bike in the road bike category.

Bottom line

The Bianchi Sprint is an aggressive endurance road bike. It is agile, with a 73.5° seat tube angle and 73° head tube angle. Most testers found the bike capable of taking on climbs, all-day rides, and road races. The bike has a stiff carbon frame that offers great power transfer. The bike is not as light as others in its category. The stock wheels and aluminum cockpit add unnecessary weight to the bike. Swapping these for lighter carbon components would reduce the weight of the Bianchi Sprint.

Bianchi Sprint Ultegra 2020 Review

Putting two and two together, the combination of competitive pricing, carbon frame and good components suggests that something would have to give with the Bianchi Sprint but, as Cyclist found out, that’s not quite the case.

Bianchi Sprint Ultegra Disc Review

While the original was a slender-tubed, welded steel machine, its reinvention for the 21st century is a full-carbon speedster with aggressive racing geometry and a nod here and there to aerodynamics to keep it fully on trend for a modern race rig.
