"Luxurious comfort meets super fast in this mile eating machine - performance has never felt so good."
Not our words, but those of the Cycling Weekly editor, who has recently been selecting his top bicycles and cycling products of 2017.
Among the select handful of cycles selected was the Storck Aerfast Pro G2, complete with an added dash of Frosted Chili red from our latest Colours of Life range.
In their article, Cycling Weekly said:
"Storck is a brand known for its premium carbon builds, and fast bikes and the Aerfast Pro is a machine that definitely continues that trend.
Storck’s ‘Sectional Aerodynamic Shaping’, gives the frame its slippery aerodynamic shape speed, with the bike’s frame being narrower at the middle than at the ends, which Storck promises will reduce drag when riding.
There’s an aero seat clamp with the bolt flush to the frame and the rear brake is hidden down by the bottom bracket snug out of the wind.
As you might expect, there is a beefy head tube and an oversized bottom bracket that definitely adds some zip to the ride and the high modular carbon looks, and rides, fast. Loads of tyre clearance gives you plenty of space to fit a 25mm tyre or even possibly 28mm rubber.
The bike is almost breathtakingly fast and every pedal stroke is rewarded with a direct forwards propulsion, a real sense of urgency that refuses to slow down afterwards. The bike holds its speed brilliantly, mostly down to the frame but no doubt the deep section Edco Albis wheels helped here.
Also helping is the fact the Aerfast Pro comes in with a weight of 7.47kg for the full build – that’s seriously skimpy for an aero bike.
Partner this and the bike’s seriously stiff ride and it flies up the hills, far faster than any aero bike has right too.
But for all that speed and efficiency, there’s no compromise in comfort and despite its performance orientated frame it irons out the roughs and bumps of the road, with next to no buzz coming through the carbon.
Ultimately, it’s an absolute thrill to ride, and will have you grinning ear-to-ear on how quickly it gets up to speed and how fast you can push that carbon frame."
