The e-Omnia family contains eight different models spread over three types and all based on the same platform. What does that means? Well in short a lot of choices. To be more precise, 8.500 possible combinations are at your proposal. But to make a bit easier to choose Bianchi differentiated the e-Omnia family in three types, the C Type (City) T Type (Tourer) and X Type (MTB). Bianchi started with the flagship full-carbon electric e-SUV bike, and has been extended to a range of aluminium e-bikes for all riders.
