Testriding the 20th Anniversary Pantani Bianchi Specialissima

The Specialissima has traditional lines that echo the great Bianchi bikes of the past.

The Bianchi Specialissima is the ideal choice to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Pantani’s Giro/Tour double. It is a climber’s bike, the best Bianchi has ever made and one of the best ever made. At just 780grams (55cm) it’s a great foundation for a climbing build, but that’s not the only reason it’s the right bike to wear the Mercatone Uno colors. The Specialissima, meaning ‘very special’, has traditional lines that echo the great Bianchi steel and alloy bikes of the past. Let’s not forget, the Specialissima name first achieved greatness under Fausto Coppi in the ‘50s. Come along as we test ride the bike on the legendary Gibraltar climb in Santa Barbara, Ca. This bike is featured in issue 74 of PELOTON Magazine, dedicated to climbing, and out now!
