Wilier has a long and storied history in bike racing. In its 110-year history, the brand has seen a huge evolution in the racing bicycle and has been instrumental with its own contributions. In those years, materials, geometry, and other technologies have advanced making bikes faster, safer, and more comfortable. Most manufacturers offer road framesets with a fork included, and in the case of a proprietary seattube, a seatpost as well. When Wilier released the Cento10 Air, the bike had an emphasis on aerodynamics and it knew that the front end of the bicycle was perhaps the most important area that needed to be considered and it didn't want to leave anything to chance. So it created the super slippery Alabarda Handlebar/Stem that's not only drop-dead gorgeous, it's designed to get the most out of the bike. Now available on its own, the Alabarda is poised to guide you through dicey sprints and eye-watering descents in complete comfort and control.The Alabarda is a one-piece, integrated handlebar and stem. It also eliminates the need to clamp a stem to a bar so there isn't the fear of slipping or over torquing. This design lets Wilier continuously wrap carbon fiber through the one-piece junction, increasing structural integrity and stiffness that will surely get noticed on punchy out of the saddle climbs. We love the sporty front end of Wilier bikes and we're certain that the Alabarda is a contributing factor. The other bonus with removing the clamping area is it creates a lightweight cockpit and the continuous, uninterrupted layup is better able to dampen vibrations over rough roads.The combination also allows Willier to shape the bar to NACA algorithms for the best aerodynamics. With a frame as aero as the Cento10 Air, it would be doing a great disservice to muddy up the front end with a round bar and conventional stem. You'll be glad aerodynamics are on your side as you desperately claw your way up the 150m gap to the day's successful breakaway. The bar's dime...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
