Now called the Cento10 Air, the bike actually sees an increases in frontal area of nearly 3% compared to the Cento1AIR, yet has an 8% improved aerodynamics efficiency according to Wilier.

Like all other recent Wilier frames, The Cento10 Air uses what’s called “Balanced Design” to ensure every frame size feels and rides the same. From the XS to the XXL, the tubes are resized to match the frame. The Cento10 Air will be available in the United States in two complete build options, and two frameset options. The frameset with Alabarda bar/stem will cost $4499, or $3749  without Alabarda.
