The Arcadex gravel bike perfectly combines an emotional communion with nature, and the exhilarating rush of Bianchi racing DNA. It delivers distinct performance for the modern gravel rider.
The sculpted carbon fibre frame is incredibly responsive, so the Arcadex is primed to perform as soon as you push on the pedals – whether riding to explore, or indulging your competitive spirit. Take off-road capability, combine it with the speed and aesthetics you love about your road bike, then you have the Arcadex. With clearance for 700×42 or 650×47 tyres, it’s for those who want to ride gravel, faster.
The Arcadex serves as the connection between the human spirit and the natural world beyond, enhancing every sense, from the crispness of colours to the feeling of friendship among companions. This bike creates an instant connection to the simple pleasure of riding and will help you to perform to the best of your ability, no matter the terrain. Everything is intensified. Nature is amplified.
The name Arcadex takes inspiration from Arcadia (Ἀρκαδία), the legendary region of Greek and Roman myth and tied inextricably to visions of natural harmony.
GRAVEL, THE BIANCHI WAY
Bianchi brings its hallmark dedication to detail to the gravel world. The frame design has been aerodynamically optimised for performance, while clearance for 700×42 or 650×47 tyres delivers more than enough scope to tackle any rough terrain you might choose.
Naturally you’ll find eyelets for mudguards, so the Arcadex can be easily transformed into a high-speed bikepacking machine. The frame also features better integration, to protect against the ingress of mud and grime.
The frame can run manual or electric drivetrains, with an ACR compatible headset and a streamlined connection between frame and stem courtesy of custom head tube and spacers. As a result of these features you’ll enjoy a sleek fully integrated cockpit.
The Arcadex is available in two colour options, both of which take inspiration from the untapped wilderness where the bike is most at home. Choose from either gold storm or classic celeste – with both accompanied by ‘blue note’, a rich, premium accent colour. The paint design and graphics give a sense of dynamism and forward movement, so the bike looks like an extension of its surroundings, and appears fast, even when it’s standing still.
