The Wilier Triestina Cento1SR has won three United States National Championship titles in the last year. Its combination of low weight and aerodynamic advantage makes it the perfect weapon for a huge range of conditions. The new Cento1SR with a standard aerodynamic seat post will bring this race winning frame to a wider audience.
After a season of racing aboard the Cento1SR, there is no doubt that the UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling Team love the bike. The frame, designed to combine the best of aerodynamics and low weight, has been ridden to victory in the most prestigious races in the United States. Alison Powers rode the Cento1SR to victory on the hilly National Championship course in Chattanooga, TN last year. Powers attacked on the descent, and stayed away from a select field on a long run in to the finish.
We have listened to the feedback from our professional teams, including UHC, and the new Cento1SR is a product of that collaboration. In combination with Ritchey, we have developed a unique Kamm-tail aerodynamic seatpost. In place of the integrated seatmast, the new post maintains the wind-cheating ability of the Cento1SR, but increases the bike’s adaptability to a range of riders. The new seatpost will make travelling with the Cento1SR much simpler, and also improve adjustability for the home mechanic. We have maintained the proven technologies that made the Cento1SR so successful this year; the Di2 ready internal routing and 3D dropout system ensure the bike will be adaptable to every drivetrain on the market.
The Cento1SR will be offered in the United States as a frameset or complete bike. The Dura Ace mechanical groupset was chosen to match the bike’s no fuss approach to racing. Combining the low weight of the Shimano components with the aero-friendly Kamm-tail design, we are confident that the Cento1SR is the perfect bike for the hard working privateer racer.
