Hi,

Bianchi used to have a XR2 with disc in 2013/2014:

Now they don't offer any race bikes with disc (only the Infinito endurance model).
Will they offer any race bike/ race frameset with disc for 2018? Is there any Bianchi with disc listed in the UCI list for 2018?

I mean, they have their Zolder Disc which is their CX bike... I haven't bought a new Bianchi ever since they started using pressfits.

I'm sure we'll see the more conservative bike manufacturers create disc brake bikes now that UCI has Neutral Service rules specifications for disc. Bianchi's strategy has been keeping them alive for over a century so it's not like they're doing anything wrong. Hah.

It seems there is no new Bianchi race bike with disc for 2017 in the UCI list. Maybe they will have one next year for 2018. We will see....

There's the Aria disc now, a bit too heavy to be a true race bike but still in their performance range, aero, and very celeste
