Bianchi Aria E-Road Review Overview

The Bianchi Aria E-Road takes a lot of qualities from the standard Aria road bike but with added pedal assist. It is an attractive bike weighing at just 12.3kg, which is a considerable amount lighter than most e-bikes. The bike has the ebikemotion system with an app you can connect to on your smartphone which has many features. It is a suitable bike for riders who are potentially limited to riding because of age or disability making it possible to still join friends or groups when out.

Battery, Speed & Range

In the down tube is where the 250W battery is held which is lower than your typical e-mountain bike batteries. The iWoc button is mounted on the top tube which uses the ebikemotions system, all you do is press the button to turn it on and the LED ring will show up as white. If you hold the button it will turn to green which is the lowest assistance, orange is the medium assistance and red is full assistance. The light will also show you the level of the battery, white being 100-75 percent, green 75-50 percent, orange 50-25 percent, red 25 percent and then flashing red is less than 10 percent.

The Arias assistance only begins when you are tackling hills, on normal roads it is stable and carries its speed well handling like an Aero bike should do. With any bike if you are tackling hillier terrain then your assistance will work harder and therefore drain the power out of your battery as it is delivering all the power to the motor, but if you manage the assist levels correctly you can get a good speed and range out of the bike.

The Aria comes with the Shimano Ultegra drivetrain which adds some speed to the bike, the Ultegra disc brakes have great stopping power with the extra weight of the motor and battery giving you a reliable and stable ride. The tires are bigger on the E-road compared to the normal Aria road bike which gives you a more comfortable ride over rough roads.
