Description

The future is here.

We hate to attach words like 'value' to the Storck Scentron/Shimano Ultegra Di2 Complete Road Bike, but that's essentially what it delivers. As Storck puts it, the Scentron is a high-end frameset at a middle-class price. And with one of the best carbon fiber layups in the business, and a design that's based around electronic shift systems, we won't hesitate to say that your'e getting more than your money's worth.

Starting with the carbon fiber itself, the Scentron was constructed from Storck's own CFR/UD carbon fiber, with the UD designating 'uni-directional.' Why uni-directional? Well, compared to a woven carbon fabric, uni-directional carbon is oriented as it sounds, with one direction, or on one axis. And while this makes the production process incredibly complex in regard to load path and force direction determination, the payout is worth it to Storck. You see, compared to woven layups, uni-directional fibers tend to better stiffen frames, while also improving vibration dampening. And, this is achieved at a much lower overall weight. However, Storck was far from finished in any of these regards.

Let's approach the Storck layup process in a short series of steps. First off, Storck begins the design with 3D CAD imaging. This digital process provides Storck with the precise data and dimensions necessary for the development of the mold. From there, the CFR/UD fibers are soaked in resin and hand-placed into the computer-generated mold. Once placed in the mold, the fibers are heated and pressed into place with an air channeling tool. Afterwards, the fibers are smoothed over by hand, ensuring an unprecedented level of preciseness and detail to the layup.

It's worth noting that the Scentron is, in fact, molded in a monocoque. This means that the Scentron is comprised of specific modulus carbon fibers throughout the frame, or in other words, it features a one-piece molded construction. This eliminates excess weight by requiring less carbon and resin application at the tube junctures of the frame. As a result, at around 1090 grams, the entry-level Scentron is lighter than most companies' top-tier frame offerings.

Moving into frame specifics, you'll find a standard 68mm English bottom bracket juncture that efficiently transfers power to the rear triangle. And not surprisingly, we see the reoccurring theme at work again of increased weight reduction coming as a result of increased power transfer. At the seatstays, Storck gracefully originates them from a solid box-section above the brake caliper. And again, this results in increased comfort via vertical compliance, however, it also directly equates to a higher level of lateral rigidity. Additionally, you'll find that the Scentron is one of the most painstakingly rider-tuned frames on the market. This is due, in part, to Storck's proportional tubing concept, where every frame size uses adapted dimensions, wall thickness, tube diameter, and tapering to ensure the exactly intended ride quality regardless of size. Rounding out the construction is the Scentron's defining feature, electronic-specific internal cable routing.

For the fork, Storck incorporated its latest iteration of the trend-setting and award winning Stiletto, the Stiletto 340. The first version of the Stiletto was introduced in 1999, and was widely hailed as the lightest fork on the planet. And while the Stiletto Light only tipped the scales at 280 grams, the 340 gram Stiletto found here is still lighter than most of the featherweight, aftermarket forks. The 340 features a tapered design that's been mated to a carbon reinforced heat tube and a 1-1/8 - 1-1/4 inch integrated headset.

As for the build, the Absolutist has been spec'd with a full Shimano Ultegra Di2 6770 group set. And to ensure that you'll be able to climb over anything, it also features a 50/34t Ultegra crankset and a 12-25 Ultegra CS-6700 cassette. On cockpit duty, you'll find Zipp Service Course stem, seatpost, and bars, topped off with Arundel cork tape and a Selle Italia SL Kit Carbonio saddle. Rounding out the build, Mavic's Aksium clincher wheelset provides a stiff interface between the Absolutist and the road.

Altogether, these technologies, paired with an unrelenting dedication to hand-built perfection, create a frame that's balanced, lightweight, compliant, and most importantly, fast.

The Storck Scentron/Shimano Ultegra Di2 Complete Road Bike - 2012 is available in the color Blue/white/carbon and in six odd sizes from 47 to 63cm. Please note that this frame features a 68mm English bottom bracket, a 36.6mm seatpost collar, and a CNC-machine aluminum derailleur hanger.
