Bianchi wants to offer around 8,500 different configuration options with the new e-bikes of the E-Omnia series — which also explains the name “Omnia”, which stands for “everything” in Latin. The new bikes are divided into three model series: The C-Type is available exclusively as a low-mounted model, the X-Type is aimed at mountain bikers and finally the T-Type, which is designed as a fitness, commuter and urban bike.
The design of the new E-Omnia series is certainly not to everyone’s taste, but it definitely stands out from other bikes in this class. Interesting is in any case the integration of the headlight in front and the taillights on the two chainstays. Fixed to the frame of the T-Type is also the massive rack, which is accordingly also painted in frame color. All models are equipped with a suspension fork, and there is also the option of a full-suspension frame. And in addition to the diamond frame, the T-Type is also available with a trapezoidal frame.
For the motor, Bianchi relies on the powerful Bosch drive from the Performance Line CX line, which offers a whopping 85 Nm of torque. In addition to the removable standard battery with 500 Wh, the bikes can also be configured with the larger 625 Wh model and even as a dual battery. And even the recently introduced and fully integrated ABS from Blubrake is also available as an option!
A derailleur from Shimano’s Deore series with 10 gears is installed as a gear system, which can optionally be upgraded to the better XT series with 12 gears. However, the hub gears available for the T-Type models in combination with the Gates belt drive are also interesting — although only five gears are then available, which should not be too much of a disadvantage in view of the strong motor in urban use.
Prices for the E-Omnia T-Type start at 3,370 euros, the FT-Type with full suspension starts at 4,900 euros. All options can be viewed directly in Bianchi’s configurator.
