Bianchi Impulso Allroad
You can call it a gravel bike, but this one is for roadways and trails made of asphalt, gravel, cobblestones, dirt, wooden boards, bricks or cement.
The 40mm wide tires will feel stable and squishy (yet still pretty fast) regardless of the road surface. The wide but shallow drop bars should make you feel comfortable and in control wherever you roll, and the Shimano GRX components should work well enough that you forget about the parts on your bike and just enjoy the ride.
The whole “gravel bike” thing might seem like the bike fad of the month, but it’s not. Gravel bikes really are what we’ve always wanted: One bike that does everything really well. It’ll go fast when you feel like going fast. You can ride these bikes safely and comfortably no matter the surface, terrain or traffic. You can carry a lot of stuff with you or leave it all behind.
Speaking of stuff, If you want this bike for commuting or long-distance touring, it’ll be easy to set this one up the way you want it. Bottle cages, fenders and racks fit just fine (in fact there are hidden holes where the fender struts slide in and secure).
If you’d like a bit of help up the hills, there’s the Impulso E-Allroad with an Ebikemotion X35 motor installed. Three standard assist levels plus one triggered by your heart rate (if you wear a heart rate monitor). The E-Allroad weighs only 28 pounds so it’s fast even with the motor turned off!
