Wilier Cento1Air - first look

Italian aero road bike

We first heard of the Wilier Cento1Air aero road bike a couple of weeks back. Now BikeRadar have taken a closer look and have further information.

Three complete bikes are set to be brought to the UK, the most affordable being the Ultegra 11 (£3,750). An Ultegra Di2 bike will retail at £4,249 while the range-topper will use mechanical Dura-Ace and have an RRP of £5,499. US prices are to be confirmed.

The new CFD developed frame borrows aero-efficient tweaks from Wilier's existing TT bike, the Twin Blade. That means an integrated aero fork, an aero seatpost with matching clamp, and low rear stays. 

The main section of each carbon tube uses Kamm tail-style profiling – an airfoil with a flat rear surface, for those who aren't in the know. Geometry and sizing is identical to that of the proven Cento1SR.

Wilier's international website is listing a full range of complete builds, including various transmission and component options. There are also five colours to choose from. Check out our image gallery for a closer look, and stay tuned to BikeRadar for a full review.
