Wilier designed their Cento10Air SRAM eTap Road Bike to be an all-out competitive race machine and to push the co-operation of the components with the frame, in order to provide the best possible performance.
It’s full carbon fibre aero frame has teardrop shaped edges, which give the Cento10Air it’s distinctive angular appearance and ensure it cuts through the air more efficiently. It’s also equipped with widely spaced narrow fork blades and an all-in-one carbon monocoque handlebar/stem unit, ensuring optimum aerodynamics and precise handling. Its short headtube puts the rider into an aggressive race position.
The Cento10Air comes kitted out with the game changing SRAM eTap groupset, which provides the rider with a unique and intuitive feel, ultra quick gear changes, and as it operates wirelessly, you'll get consistent gear shift performance in all weather. DT Swiss RRC 65 carbon clincher wheels help to ensure you’ll fly up the climbs and get the most out of your sprints on the flat.

Advanced Aerodynamic Frame: The Cento10AIR revolutionises aero concepts known until now. Research, study, and testing have redefined and redesigned the tube profiles, departing from the traditional concept that the thinner they are, the more aero they are. Now the bike is designed with the overall system in mind. The goal is to push the cooperation of all the components with the frame, to have the best performance. Asymmetric Rear Stays: Wilier's asymmetric chainstay design for the Cento1SR is the next evolution of the design concept we originally introduced in the legendary first generation Cento1. The drive side stay’s shape and lower positioning counteract chain torque, while the non-drive stay is shaped to balance those same forces from the opposite side. The lower drive-side stay also reduces typical “chain-slap” when your ride gets rough. Alabarda Handlebar/Stem: Alabarda is a monocoque integrated aero bar. This handlebar is a Wilier design, born to match perfectly the new Cento10AIR, like almost any other Wilier Triestina road bikes. The bar is designed following NACA algorithm, as the new Cento10AIR frame. The aero performance is at a very high level; every detail has been designed to make the wind disappear. Impact Front: Another important point about aerodynamics is in the frontal area’s footprint. The front fork is much wider than usual, and the legs of the fork are farther from the wheel. This design helps to reduce turbulence of the air flowing through the bike, with less pressure and less drag. When compared with Cento1AIR, Cento10AIR has 2.86% more frontal area, but has an 8% improved aerodynamics efficiency. Direct Mount Brakes: The wider fork and rear stays allow Wilier to choose direct mount brakes. This type of brake offers more power and better modulation when braking, and of course, more clearance for tyres up to 28mm. This kind of brake matches better with the design and the function of the frame.
