The Bianchi Impulso Dama road bicycle is a Bianchi in the Italian tradition: Fast, functional, and classically styled. The Impulso Dama takes Bianchi's legandary road manners and adds an excellent fit for female riders. The lightweight aluminum frame has been shaped and hydroformed to be responsive to every pedal stroke with no energy-robbing flex. The Impulso Dama's carbon fiber fork not only subtracts weight but also soaks up fatiguing vibration, thanks to Bianchi's own Kevlar Vibration Isolation Device (or K-VID) construction. The overall fit of the Impulso Dama accomodates female riders with a shorter top tube length and taller head tube for a more upright and comfortable posture.
Bianchi equipped the Impulso Dama with Shimano's proven 11-speed 105 drivetrain, including the front derailleur, rear derailleur and dual-control levers. For quick operation, long service life and light weight, Shimano's 105 components fit the bill nicely. The levers feature and adjustable reach to accommodate smaller hands and shorter fingers. An alloy Shimano 50/34T compact crankset and 11-28T Shimano 105 cassette provide a wide gearing range for tackling challenging inclines. Shimano also provides the lightweight alloy RS wheels. Wrapping the wheels is a set of 700x25c Vittoria's Zaffiro Slick tires, bringing a smooth ride and confident grip during high-speed turns and descents. Bianchi's own Reparto Corse multi-pivot brake calipers help reign in speed with excellent lever feedback. A Selle San Marco Era women's saddle sits atop an alloy Reparto Corse seatpost, while an alloy Reparto Corse stem and alloy road handlebar complete this classic road machine.
