The days of compromised aero road bikes are gone. From aerodynamic, efficient and comfortable, you’d be lucky to get two, but thanks to improved carbon layups and informed design, Wilier’s Cento10 Air Disc proves three into one does go.
Its profile is the result of hard won physics and aerodynamic work. Every tube that needs to slice through the air has a truncated aerofoil profile, plus the bar and stem are integrated carbon fibre and aerodynamic.
The Shimano brake hoses and Di2 gear wires are integrated, and the thru-axle ends are flush with the frame and fork. The fork is broad shouldered, and the seatstays are a generous width, reducing turbulence from the wheel, but the asymmetric chainstays are deep and burly, directing energy from the cranks and wide bottom bracket shell rearwards.
