Aero Revisited




Aero revisited: One year on, how far have aero road bikes come?

A decade ago the aero road bike segment didn’t exist; today it is redefining how race bikes are made. Ten years after CervĂ©lo led the way with its aluminum Soloist, Specialized, Felt, Scott, Litespeed, Ridley, Blue and others are fighting to make race bikes that best their round-tubed competitors. In the past, significant aerodynamic gains came at the cost of frame stiffness, which explains why many racers preferred round-tube
bikes. But what do the aero bikes of 2012 have to offer?
