Wilier's 2018 Cento10AIR Disc Road Frameset proves that disc brake road and aerodynamics aren't mutually exclusive. This disc version gets updated tube and fork shapes that achieve a claimed 8% increase in aerodynamic efficiency over the previous rim brake version. It's good to know with all that newfound speed on tap, the brakes can now help you pull in the reins with authority in a controlled manner in any condition.The Cento10AIR Disc is an aero bike through and through but it doesn't detract from the fact that it is also an excellent all-arounder. It developed the tube shapes based on NACA low-speed algorithms, in particular, Kamm theory which is responsible for Kamm tails on many popular modern aero bikes. The benefits of the truncated tail are numerous, namely dropping weight while improving aerodynamics and improving torsional stiffness. At the fork, a greater gap between the fork and the wheel, afforded by relocating the brake caliper from the fork crown to the backside of the non-driveside leg, greatly reduces turbulence, thus smoothing the airflow.Included with this frameset is a custom carbon monocoque seatpost from Ritchey with 22mm of setback. This post works in conjunction with the frame to help reduce road vibrations and provide a more comfortable ride. The shape is unique as it has to fit inside the aero seatube and is developed to reduce turbulence as air flows by. Anchoring the post in place is a sleek seatpost clamp expander sitting stealthily at the toptube/seattube junction hiding it from the wind.When looking to construct a great all-around frame, one that is lightweight and responsive to every pedaling effort and bend in the road, it has to be constructed from the right materials. The Cento10AIR relies on 60t Mitsubishi high-modulus carbon fiber for lateral stiffness in critical areas. The 'T' in 60t refers to ton, as in it can withstand 60 tons of pressure per square millimeter. T800H and T1700SC carbon are used in areas where a more el...

Maine ocean islands provide the only nesting sites for Atlantic puffins in the United States. Eastern Egg Rock in the midcoast region, Seal Island and Matinicus Rock at the mouth of Penobscot Bay, and Machias Seal Island and Petit Manan Island off the downeast coast provide habitat for more than 4,000 puffins each summer.
