Aerfast Platinum G1
Can a road bike deliver even higher speed, better aerodynamics and greater perfection? Storck has captured the answer in a single word: Aerfast. The frame set with the purpose-designed Aerfast fork and a wide range of well thought-out frame features, such as the rear wheel brake positioned behind the bottom bracket, has been designed for optimum aerodynamics. The rear triangle allows the gap between the rear wheel and the seat tube to be adjusted according to the type of tyres fitted. All the tubes have been developed according to the rigorous ‘Sectional Aerodynamic Shaping’ standard. Aerfast - riding progress.

Larger frames, due to the rider’s weight and higher leverage, are naturally exposed to higher load changes as well. Proportional Tubing takes these loads into account. The conification, the wall thickness of the tubes and the diameter are adapted to these loads. This results in frames which, irrespective of the frame height, deliver consistently good stiffness and comfort values.
The rider and his/her seating position essentially determine the aerodynamics of the total system. The geometry of the bike (handlebars, wheels, frame) is another factor. For the frame, the frontal areas opposing the airflow need to be minimized to improve the drag coefficient of the total system. It has been proven that a drop with 0.02 has the optimal drag coefficient. Therefore, Storck frames with SAS have a natural drop shape in ground parallel aerodynamics: less loss of force due to more aerodynamics.
PressFit Bottom Bracket
Press-fit bottom brackets have a number of advantages. There are no threads that might wear and make disassembly work more difficult. PressFit technology uses clearly less material and thus saves weight compared with conventional technologies. The greater bottom bracket widths provide even higher stiffness in this area and, ultimately, allow larger tire clearance.
