Bianchi bikes

Keeping the request alive… Can we expect Bianchi bikes in the future?

Recently with Jumbo Visma organising more group rides, this game could really need some celeste bikes.

Today I saw in the events that the Merida Scultura is mentioned in the description of the Team Bahrain McLaren ride so… Bianchi next? If Merida will be the next brand in the game, then every pro team on Zwift will have their bike brand except for Jumbo Visma if I’m not mistaken.

Oltre, Infinito, Specialissima, Sprint, Aquila… C’mon.

+1 Specialissima!

I use a celeste Bianchi for every Zwift ride I do!

It’s only a via nirone, but it’s my dedicated trainer bike.

Yes i agree! Would love to see atleast the most famous Brands in the Shop instead of local brands that are not well-known worldwide. I don’t lie when i say i never saw a Parlee, Ribble, Diamondback, Chapter2, Ventum or Cube in my country on the road. So they might be very famous brands, but not as famous as Merida, Bianchi, De Rosa, Aargon18, Kona, Jamis, Lapierre, Cipollini, Vitus, Wilier or Colnago. There is more than 10 different Specialized bikes on Zwift but not one Bianchi.

Probably cause Speci pays for this kind of Ad and Bianchi don’t :wink:

Or do you think, Zwift designs virtual bikes and shows them in their game (=Ad) for free? :rofl:

Good point but it’s not that the users are playing for free and than there is adds to make up for it. We pay a good amount of money for this. There might be brands that don’t want to be in Zwift and don’t give out permission, but the developers know if this is the case or not. If it’s not i still want to see bianchi bike in 2020.

Again, if the pro team that uses your bikes is having events on Zwift… then why not go further? Would be good marketing & motivation to earn drops.

Good point about the sponsorship deals that are involved (therefore all the American brands) but I agree with Nicola: you already pay a good amount of money each month. Almost each pro team is holding group rides. Adding a couple of new brands is the least you can do.

From the website of Merida Bikes a month ago btw: "Today will be the first ride of Team Bahrain McLaren’s #RideAsOne series on Zwift. The first rider ‘out of the block’ will be no other than Mark Cavendish.

The #RideAsOne series is presented by MERIDA and will be the first event where the team jerseys will be seen on the platform. For now, the team will be riding on the non-branded Zwift bikes, but we are working closely with Zwift, so that the team and other riders will be using the matching team bikes in the near future."

My eyes weren’t deceiving me :wink:
