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.
To build a great monocoque carbon frame, we look for the perfect balance of stiffness, comfort and responsiveness at the lightest possible weight. Carbon fiber is an ideal material for bicycle frames because of its qualities of elasticity, capacity to withstand stresses, and its strength-to-weight ratio. The higher the modulus, the stiffer the composite. On the other end of the spectrum, the lower the modulus, the more elastic it will be. In the construction of the Cento1 Superleggera, we implemented MR60H for stiffness in the critical stress areas where lateral stiffness equates to greater efficiency. Then we used T800H and T700SC, with more elastic characteristics, to ensure comfort and sure-footed handling. Each was used as minimally as possible once our demanding strength and durability standards were met, ensuring the lightest weight frame possible.
Wilier Monocoque System: Wilier Triestina leverages the latest in carbon monocoque technologies to eliminate vulnerable areas and create frames that are lightweight, efficient and compliant.
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.
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.
