The Cento10 SL is the more affordable counterpart to Wilier’s flagship Cento10 Pro aero race bike.
With a frame that’s a claimed 200g heavier than the top-end bike and a more conventional cockpit setup, the Cento10 SL starts at £2,450 / €2,700 and costs £5,540 / €5,600 in the spec we have here, with Shimano Ultegra Di2 and Wilier’s own carbon clinchers.
What is Bike of the Week?
Every week, we bring you a detailed first look at one of the latest bikes (or framesets) to arrive at BikeRadar HQ – from road to commuting, gravel to enduro, and anything in between.
This is our chance to introduce the bike and everything that makes it unique before hitting the road or trails.

Wilier Cento10 SL: racy, red and rim-optional
Although it’s the second-tier model, there’s nothing budget about this bike and the model we have here is sporting the most expensive build on offer.
The Cento10 SL’s frame weighs a claimed 1,190g for a medium, a penalty of 200g over the Pro flagship.
It’s available with rim brakes if you want them, but most riders will likely be opting for this disc version.
Outwardly, the SL and Pro are very, very similar, with truncated aerofoil tube profiles throughout.
Perhaps as a consequence of this, Wilier claims the SL’s torsional frame stiffness is actually slightly higher than that of the Pro, although the brand doesn’t divulge numbers on this.
The SL also gets a more conventional cockpit setup, with a Ritchey-made bar and stem in place of the Pro’s Alabarda one-piece carbon cockpit.
Despite this, the cable routing is almost fully integrated, disappearing into the headset beneath the stem.
There’s been a definite trend towards bigger tyre clearances on race bikes and the Wilier officially accepts 30mm rubber in its disc incarnation.
In a more conservative vein, the Wilier carbon clinchers are just 17mm-wide internally – comparatively narrow by current standards.
This XL bike weighs a hair over 8kg without pedals and its geometry is very much at the racy end of the spectrum, with 571mm of stack and 396mm of reach.
Look out for a full review on BikeRadar in the coming months.
