Gracing the office is the Bianchi T-Tronik Performer 9.1. It's a high end e-bike designed for aggressive riding. Sorted with a Shimano Steps motor, carbon front end and alloy rear triangle it looks fit for some serious shredding.
Featuring a 65.3 head angle (in the low setting), a 432mm reach on our 17" frame and 435mm chainstays, Bianchi has designed the T-Tronik Performer 9.1 for the hardcore rider for all day adventures over serious terrain but to be equally at home pinning local trails.
Aiding the cause is 140mm of rear travel provided by a Fox Float DPS Factory and a 160mm Fox 36 Factory. There's also a Fox Transfer dropper post offering 150mm of drop.
Stopping the bike, you'll find Shimano BR-M8120's set up with 203mm rotors.
Among a number of cool techy tricks, the Bianchi comes with a geometry adjusting flip chip. In it's high setting, the BB rises and the head angle steepens to 66 degrees, great for those tough climbs or mellow trails.
The bike is also compatible with Fox's Live Valve system.
With room for up to 29 x 2.6 and 27.5 x 2.8 wheel and tyre combos, the version we have on test is fitted with H1700 Spline 29 wheels from H1700 DT Swisss wrapped with 2.6 Kenda Hellcats.
Powering the bike is a Shimano Steps E-8000 motor. There's a 630wh battery integrated into the downtube to keep it going and Shimanos cycle computer at the handlebar.
Following the likes of Canyon and Trek, Bianchi has specced the T-Tronik with a headset mounted impact protection cap, saving the handlebars from damaging that sharp paintwork and carbon frame during a spill.
The Bianchi T-Tronik Performer 9.1 will set you back around £6,940 and it's available in four sizes, 15", 17", 19" and 21".
It's availble in two colours too, we have the Black/Celeste colourway but it also comes in Black/Silver.
