The new e-Arcadex gravel e-bike collection redefines the way to explore on two wheels. Its unique, full-carbon design gets a boost from a powerful Bosch motor unit, and is enhanced by three colorways inspired by our planet’s biospheres: the arctic, forests, and the desert
With the e-Arcadex collection, Bianchi extends its gravel and touring e-bike platform by adding a new high-performance, full-carbon model designed for adventure, either on- or off-road.
The e-Arcadex frame geometry comes from Bianchi’s Arcadex model, which has been specifically designed to guarantee ideal power transfer and elevate comfort, even during long hours in the saddle. The e-Arcadex provides the smoothest, seamless transition from asphalt to off-road, thanks to its full-carbon frame, which can be fitted with up to 700×45 tires, thus further improving the bike’s feedback and stability. The Velomann seatpost was developed to increase the bike’s shock absorption with 80 mm of travel – that’s in addition to 40 mm of integrated suspension.
Designed to make the most of every adventure, the e-Arcadex is equipped with eyelets on the fork and the rear stays to comfortably carry whatever gear you need during your outing. Thanks to the dedicated cover designed by Bianchi engineers, the battery is well protected from mud, water, and debris, while the simple and user-friendly release system makes it easy to remove and recharge the battery whenever needed.
Equipped with the 250W Bosch Performance Line CX power unit, with 85 Nm torque and an integrated 500Wh Powertube battery, e-Arcadex’ has a range of up to 115 km and can be fully recharged in just four hours.
The colors of nature:
The link between e-Arcadex and surrounding nature is further enhanced by three color concepts. Bianchi’s creative team has created a capsule collection of color treatments that draw inspiration from three of the most fascinating biospheres on earth: the regions of the great glaciers, forests, and deserts.
The Glacial colorway combines traditional Bianchi celeste with a splash of arctic blue, while the shades of green characteristic of forests define the Forest colorway. e-Arcadex Desert is characterized by beige and gold shades typical of the endless expanses of dunes and sand in a fluid landscape that’s constantly changing.
From adventure to urban commuting: e-Arcadex Tourer:
Along with the gravel version, Bianchi has also created the e-Arcadex Tourer for those who wish to be in the saddle all week long, whether it be for work or for fun.
Outfitted with racks, fenders, and front and rear lights for riding safely even in low-light conditions, the e-Arcadex is designed to be used on both off-road trails and on the daily commute to work.
The new Bianchi e-Arcadex is available for a retail price of 6,249 €.
The new e-Arcadex Bianchi Tourer has a recommended retail price of 5,349 €.
