Aernario Platinum G1
As the Platinum version, the Aernario was the bike with the ‘best frame of all time according to the Tour standard’ (Tour-Magazin 02/2013) in 2013. In 2014, it was the iF GOLD design award and ‘Superbike of the year 2014/2015’ award winner of the British road.cc. The Aernario models impress in terms of function and design, whether they’re fitted with caliper or disc brakes. Absolutely top stiffness-to-weight ratios are complemented by razor-sharp steering, high comfort and intelligent tube design. ‘Sectional Aerodynamic Shaping’ and ‘Proportional Tubing’ ensure first-class performance of the frame. Stable acceleration and tracking, plus agility and high comfort: Aernario will always make you a winner, be it in practice or racing.

Directional Depending Stiffness
Directional depending stiffness is the ability of a frame or component to optimally respond with high stiffness to the forces acting in the load direction while ensuring high comfort. In other words, it is the synergy between intended stiffness and desired comfort. In the case of frames, this is achieved by designing transverse-oval tube shapes, the targeted selection of materials (e.g. carbon fibers) and their application (e.g. special layups for carbon fiber reinforced plastics).
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.
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.
As with every Storck bike, Markus Storck is the leading input in design with years of experience of carbon engineering and aerodynamics.
It all starts with an idea, a mental concept or a vision - inspired by the knowledge of what motivates bikers, what fascinates them and what ultimately makes sense, is useful and innovative. This is followed by meticulous work on the project – the search for and discarding of solutions, and starting again from scratch with a new approach. The results continually have to be measured against the objectives. Our engineers are untiring in their efforts of searching for creative solutions and coming up with improvements that make technical sense. A wide range of technologies that make our frames and components the best in the world have been created this way. All the development steps take place at our headquarters in Idstein and all ideas, new developments and research projects are initiated, managed, coordinated and reviewed in Germany. Before going into production, every product is tested by means of scientific methods and on our own test benches. German Engineering is an attribute of all Storck products – an attribute we are proud of and that our customers can rely on.
The approaches of our engineers pursue a single aim: to develop frames and components with outstanding technical features. Read on to find out what technologies abbreviations such as DDS, TFA or PPT stand for.
