Bianchi Infinito CV – helicopter technology

Bianchi Infinito CV

I was intrigued by this video from inCycle showing Countervail, Bianchi’s vibration cancelling technology.  Bianchi has developed Countervail along with a US aerospace company to incorporate viscoelastic, vibration cancelling properties into the carbon fiber layup process.  This kind of technology is very specific to the helicopter industry where the reduction of vibration caused by rotating components interacting with outside factors is very much at the forefront of modern day rotorcraft.  To see this kind of manufacturing process in bicycle design is quite intriguing.  Nice bike as well!  I’ll let you take a look:
