Wilier has developed the innovative ACTIFLEX suspension system exclusively for the Cento10NDR. This new ACTIFLEX technology uses a linkage behind the seat-tube to provide vibration damping and isolation from bumps. The carefully controlled suspension will be almost unnoticeable when riding, with the bike working to smooth out imperfections in the road. The ACTIFLEX system on the Cento10NDR barely moves in normal riding situations, but can flex up to 3 mm when needed.
The Cento10NDR will be available in the United States as a complete bicycle, or frameset only. Full builds will be available with a Dura Ace Disc Mechanical groupset for $7999, and in an Ultegra Di2 Disc groupset for $7349. The frameset will retail for $3499. The full size run, from XS to XXL, will be available in the United States, starting in September 2017.
Matching the terrain that this bike will be ridden across, the Cento10NDR will arrive stock in the USA with disc brakes and room for 32c tires. The tire clearance, measured on modern wide rims, will allow for large tires to fit while still keeping clearance for mud and dirt. The bike is also capable of being run with direct mount rim brakes, a nod to the likelihood of the Wilier Triestina – Selle Italia Pro Team riding this bicycle in the Spring Classics, where there is still considerable uncertainty as to whether disc brakes will be allowed.
The Cento10NDR geometry has been designed from the ground up to provide a balanced but lively ride. The reach has been reduced in comparison to the Cento10AIR in order to increase the maneuverability on rough terrain. The stack height has been increased, giving the rider to the ability to find a comfortable bar height without resorting to a huge number of spacers under the stem. The resulting position will keep riders happy on long rides, while creating a clean aesthetic that matches the bike’s smooth lines. Wilier wanted to ensure the Cento10NDR could be raced in the professional ranks, while still accommodating the rider looking for a comfortable all-day position on the bike.
