The Cento1 range covers three frames: the Cento1 SR, the Cento1 Air and the Cento1 Disc.
The Cento1 SR is touted as Wilier’s ‘ultimate road race frameset’, designed for the pro peloton and raced by the United Healthcare team, and a machine we thoroughly enjoyed riding when we reviewed it back in 2012. “One of the best all-rounders we have ridden,” we said. For 2015 the Cento1 SR is available in a Shimano Ultegra mechanical build (with an FSA SLK 386 chainset) with Shimano RS21 wheels for £3,750.
The Cento1 Disc first broke cover at last year’s Eurobike trade show and is now a fully-fledged member of the Cento1 range for model year 2015. The frame shares many of the features of the SR but has a revised rear triangle and asymmetric fork to counteract the braking forces generated by discs and optimise comfort. The £5,299 machine is equipped with Shimano’s Ultegra Di2 groupset, the Japanese firm’s hydraulic disc brakes and disc-specific RX31 wheels.
Like the SR, the Cento1 Air is another machine to have already passed through RoadCyclingUK HQ – read our review here – and the aero frame, with its visually striking Kammtail-style tube profiles and huge bottom bracket area, was only introduced last year so is unchanged this time out.
Three complete bikes are available, with mechanical Shimano Ultegra and Shimano RS21 wheels for £3,750, with electronic Shimano Ultegra Di2 and Shimano RS21 hoops for £4,249, and with mechanical Shimano Dura-Ace and Mavic Cosmic Carbone SLE wheels for £5,499.
