Storck Aernario Comp Disc Ultegra Complete Bike - 2017 description:
Two trends have come to define road bikes over the past two years: comfort and disc brakes. Those trends are of course just the latest additions to what we think of when we consider a high-end bike: low weight, high stiffness, and aerodynamic properties. Little surprise that Storck, one of the world's leaders in stiffness-to-weight awards, harnesses all five in the Aernario Comp Disc Ultegra Complete Bike. It's aerodynamic and stiff, so it gets up and goes when you hit the gas, but it's also equipped with disc brakes, so it stops confidently, regardless of conditions. Add to that the frame's built-in comfort and aerodynamics, and the Aernario disc is a bike you can ride all day. If you're familiar with aero-frames, you're most likely aware of the drawbacks that normally plague the category--namely questionable aesthetics and a harsh ride. However, Markus Storck refused to accept the status quo, and he created what Storck calls "sectional aerodynamic shaping." Think of it as an aerodynamic profile on the horizontal plane. By this, we mean that the Aernario's teardrop profile takes shape horizontally rather than vertically. In other words, if you were to take a cross-section, its aero-shape would become strikingly evident. However, the aerodynamic advantage is hidden by a characteristically beautiful silhouette. As with its rim brake-equipped cousin, the Aernario disc was constructed from Storck's own CFR/UD carbon fiber. Compared to a woven carbon fabric, unidirectional carbon is oriented as it sounds, with one direction, or on one axis. Unidirectional fibers tend to better stiffen frames, while also improving the characteristic of vibration dampening. And through a refined layup, this is achieved at a much lower overall weight. It's worth noting that the Aernario is, in fact, molded in a monocoque. In other words, it features a one-piece molded construction. This eliminates excess weight by requiring less carbon and resin application at the tube junctures of the...
