Aerfast Platinum G2
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.
Sectional Aerodynamic Shaping
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.
Optimized Aero Fork
The optimum distance between components prevents aerodynamically unfavorable vortices of the airflow. The open and wide design of the Fascenario.3 fork takes this into account and thus avoids the resistance and its braking effect that might occur due to air stream vortices between the fork and the wheel in a design where the components are too close together. This approach is supported by the aerodynamically favorable seat of the fork crown on the head tube.
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.
