The handling of a Wilier bike is one of its most treasured attributes. We continually search for ways to further improve the solid feel at the front end, which has led to some of the most significant of the Cento1 SR’s enhancements. We found that a new way of positioning the down tube and top tube with respect to the head tube creates a virtual increase of the head tube’s height, which makes it 14% stiffer in terms of torsional rigidity. The top tube approaches the head tube at a downward angle while the down tube is angled upwards as it joins the head tube and the Integrated Fork. This junction is traditionally like the point of a triangle, but this new angle and positioning makes it more like a square, which is stiffer. The back of the fork’s brake hole is tucked into the down tube, keeping it clean and protected from the elements. The Integrated Fork design also creates an aerodynamic profile that reduces drag. Drawing from research implemented in development of our Twin Blade, the Cento1 SR’s fork legs are designed for optimal stability and aerodynamics. Like the proven Kamm truncated tail concept implemented in our time trial models, both the Cento1 SR’s integrated seatmast and fork legs benefit from this structural innovation, thereby attaining a perfect balance of lightweight, aerodynamics and steerability.
Floating Suspension System
In this system the shock absorber is not anchored directly onto the frame at a certain point, but floats between two links connecting the rear stays. This unusual design boosts pedal power (and therefore effectiveness when riding uphill) because it gives the bike a low bobbing level and a low pedal kick back. The perfect system for what we wanted to achieve! The utmost efficacy riding downhill and high pedal yield riding uphill, in or out of the saddle.
The drive-side chainstay has been modified to better facilitate the forces applied to it by the actuation of the drivetrain, providing enhanced stability and ultra-efficient power transfer.
What we commonly refer to as “carbon” is actually a composite of fibers and epoxy resin. The resin’s function is to join and bond the fibers, as well as protect the overall structure from external forces. In order to avoid potential points of weakness that could result from micro-gaps in a composite layup, we’ve implemented an ultra low density nanoparticle Zinc Oxide (“ZnO”) resin. This results in a stronger composite with higher resistance to impact while enabling us to reduce the weight of our frames due to its superior structural integrity. What this means out on the road is improved durability and amazingly responsive handling - the hallmark of our frames.
Seamless construction that does away with joints, glues and bolts. The dropouts are part of the unified rear triangle and an essential component of the carbon monocoque frame mold. As part of the continuous seat and chainstays, the angles of this area of the frame structure have been relaxed to dissipate road vibrations and improve comfort as well as handling.
