Italian for "fast."

In case you've been living under a rock, the age of the aero road bike is upon us, which makes Wilier's timing perfect in introducing the Cento1 Air Dura-Ace - Ultegra 11 Complete Road Bike. As the next evolution of the Cento1 SR, you already know that this is a thoroughbred that loves to go fast. And while the aerodynamics are impressive, it's the smooth, controlled ride that's had the Cento1 Air turning so many heads this year.

The Cento1 Air benefits from the experience gained in developing what Wilier calls the Twin Foil. The aggressive profiling extends from the leading edges of the fork blades, all the way back to the dropouts. And while most aero road bikes suffer in ride quality due to the design constraints of low-drag tube shapes, this type of compromise was viewed as unacceptable during the development of the Cento1 Air. To combat the poor handling exhibited by most of its competitors, the Cento1 Air was built with a massive tapered head tube and steerer tube, which yields surgically precise steering, even on high speed descents. The heavily profiled down tube should yield under power, but with the oversized bottom bracket shell, your watts won't be wasted in frame deflection.

Developed in cooperation with FSA, the BB386EVO is a competitor-dwarfing 86.5mm wide and has a diameter of 46mm. Wilier estimates that the new bottom bracket increases rigidity by 30%, while reducing power dispersion to almost zero. Additionally, this shell's width provides Wilier with the ability to widen the seat and down tube diameters by around 20mm. This drastically increases rigidity, while also promoting an efficient power transfer to the rear triangle. But, this also permits Wilier to decrease the tube's wall thickness, further shedding grams. You'll also find that the BB386 EVO was developed to use press fit bottom bracket cups, eliminating the need for alloy inserts in the shell. Of course, this also shaves a good deal of unnecessary weight. Altogether, Wilier credits BB386 EVO with increasing overall torsional rigidity by 133% and rear triangle stiffness by around 115%.

The Cento1 series has long been associated with integrated seatmasts. However, Wilier wanted to keep the ride of the Cento1 Air from being unnecessarily harsh, and accordingly, a more traditional seatpost was developed for the Air. Naturally, the teardrop shape is proprietary, and was developed to reduce turbulence as air slips around it. It's held in place by a seatpost clamp developed in conjunction with Ritchey. Basically, an internal wedge holds the post in place, and provides more than enough to security to support the rider. But just for peace of mind, there's a low-profile external seatpost clamp as a fail-safe.

To ensure rigidity and confident handling, the Cento1 Air has been constructed from a 60t Mitsubishi high-modulus carbon fiber. The 'T' in 60t refers to ton, as in it can withstand 60 tons of pressure per square millimeter. Wilier used strong carbon fiber, because the stronger the carbon, the less is needed. Thus, Wilier was able to strike the perfect balance between strength and weight.

Other new differentiators for the Air include internal cable routing, which is compatible with both electronic and mechanical drivetrains. Most importantly, however, is the Air's integrated fork. Easily the most distinguishing feature, it's integrated into the profile of the front triangle, tucking it out of the way of aerodynamic turbulence. And when combined with the massive tapered steerer tube, simple logic tells us that the expanded surface yields a stiffer than the poignant angle of a triangle. This technology has been proven with the Twin Blade, and it reduces the Cento1 Air's aerodynamic drag profile.

Wilier outfitted the Cento1 Air complete with a blend of Shimano Dura-Ace and Ultegra 11-speed components for both long term reliability and precise shifts. The brake hoods and rear derailleur are Dura-Ace items, while braking and front gear changes are handled by Ultegra options. The crankset is a FSA SLK BB386 crankset that meshes perfectly with the BB386 shell that Wilier helped to design. The cockpit is comprised of Wilier co-branded items, such as the FSA Wing Pro alloy handlebar, a FSA Energy stem, a San Marco Concor saddle, and a custom Ritchey Superlogic carbon seatpost. It rolls on Shimano's RS21 wheels.

The Wilier Cento1 Air/ Shimano Dura-Ace - Ultegra 11 Complete Road Bike - 2016 is available in six sizes from X-Small to XX-Large and in the color Black/red.

OK for certain circumstances...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had one since summer of 2016 and its a good bike. the tubes aren't designed to be aero with a regular bottle, so during crits i usually take both cages off. It climbs fairly well, but it's not going to compare to a pure climbing bike.

The Maserati of road bikes

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Wilier Cento1Air rides like a dream and the grace of the carbon fiber curves, fine Italian craftsmanship and paint job make it a true work of art. When I'm not riding I have it in the center of my living room where I can admire it.

Cento1Air is a blast

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got my Cento1Air online and put it together. Man, this puppy was beautiful out of the box! I got the stealth grey color. I actually went down a size to a Medium. The chart here says I should try a Large but I tend to feel better on a smaller frame for more compactness. Plus I had a certain length I wanted to follow so I went based upon the Effective Top Tube. I know 54's worked for me and anything in the 55's was stretching me out. Enough about sizing. The bike color seems almost as if its never been painted (like a natural black carbon) only the grey color seems to be painted. Cockpit is tight. Saddle was surprisingly comfortable. All components were spartan and worked fine. Riding the bike, it is fast! My other bike is an endurance geometry and higher quality, but this Wilier flies! I noticed I can get 2mph faster on my max and yet this is heavier than my other by 2lbs. Some people say that there is chatter when hitting bumps, I thought it was very compliant. I did however upgrade my wheelset to Reynolds. I haven't done any major climbing with it yet but for rolling and flats, this bike excels for the money in my opinion. Get yourself one, it's different, it's Italian!

I bought the 2014 Wilier Cento1Air as part of a nice build using Di2 Dura Ace...over 9G total! The frame is now going on 2 years old and the bike continues to perform well...the problem is that the clear coat is bubbling all over the frame!!! I contacted CC to file a warranty claim and unfortunately, Wilier's "paint" warranty is only for 1 year. This is absolute nonsense! I would steer clear of Wilier frames--they look great and perform well, but the manufacturing process is substandard. The picture shows one is happening all over the bike!


I had a 2012 Wilier Imperiale. It didn't have any color issue at all!!. Either you are the unlucky one or I was the lucky one, I would hesitate to buy another for sure.

I have a 2013 Wilier Gran Tourismo and experience the same issue in multiple spots, especially on the top tube. It's not as bad as in the picture above but present nevertheless.

That really is an unacceptable deviation in the warranty, and really, who would think that the paint on a frame would have different warranty period than the actual frame itself? That is ridiculous. I was considering Wilier for my new bike, but this definitely has me second guessing.

Filling the gap between TT and Road

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Wilier has done a great job filling the gap between the Blade TT and the Cento1SR road bike with their newest offering-Cento1Air. They spent ample time in the wind tunnel testing the frame and reinforced their findings with plenty of road time to create a very responsive race bike that is less susceptible to the wind. Wilier designed drag reducing frame tubes,aero post and seat stays that attach low on the seat tube to reduce the airflow,much like the Blade but with the looks of the SR. The frame also has a nice , stiff bottom bracket allowing you to punch out plenty of power yet providing a very nice, smooth quality ride if distance is your thing. All in all, this is a very fun, fast bike to own , sure to leave a smile on your face and its no mystery that Bicycling Magazine listed this as one of their top pics for 2014
