Bianchi Methanol 27 SL Frame
With its advanced High Modulus Monocoque Carbon Fibre construction, cross country-specific geometry and latest technologies, the Methanol 27 SL is the perfect base from which to build up your XC race-winning machine. Bianchi has obsessed over every little detail to bring you unrivalled power transfer, precise handling and controlled impact absorbing qualities.
Advanced Carbon Fibre XC Frame
Some of the stand-out features include asymmetrical, shock absorbing asymmetric rear stays, an integrated seatpost and triple wall carbon tubing. This SL model also incorporates Bianchi's ""Ti-NET"" technology, which strengthens the frames downtube for increased impact resistance and longer frame life.

- Asymmetrical Rear Stays: Optimized rear stays design to obtain a very compact and reactive rear triangle without sacrificing the chainline clearance. It fits different chainrings combinations and it is optimized to improve power transmission on the driveside. This design also offers increased power reactivity and pedalling performance
- ERC - Embedded Reinforcement Construction: Reinforcement carbon ribs are embedded into the main tubes profiles. The increased torsional stiffness of the head tube and the Bottom Bracket area and the crank-frame interface becomes stronger
- Ti-NET - Titanium Net Technology: A titanium net is molded together with carbon fibre in the down tube. The net acts as a barrier to protect the frame from possible impacts with stones/material thrown by the front wheel. It also brings increased impact resistance and frame lifetime
- TWT - Triple Wall Tube: TWT construction allows Bianchi to lay-up the composite material plies to form 3 thin walls which are then molded together to form a bond-less monocoque laminate tube - Increased strength and stiffness to weight ratio - Improved reactivity and ride control
- SAS - Shock Assorbing Stays: Special designed rear stays with “S” shape are laminated with carbon and glass fibers. This offers enhanced absorption of the vertical shocks on the rear drop outs without weakening the lateral and torsional stiffness of the frame. Alsom increased power transmission and reduced vibrations
