INTEGRATED AERO FORK
The fork is the first part of the frame to hit wind resistance. This is where we began in our revolution of the Cento1. We posed a relatively simple question, which required an incredibly sophisticated answer. How do we replicate the aerodynamic efficiency of the TwinBlade’s fork, but in a conventional fork? Using the rigidity already developed in the Cento1SR’s integrated fork shape (a 14% increase in torsional rigidity in comparison with Cento1, thanks to the repositioning of the down and horizontal tubes in relation to the headtube), we have now created 2 small channels below the fork’s crown, in line with the TwinFork concept in the TwinBlade. These two small channels aid airflow, while enabling increased rigidity. The down tube, in its new lowered position, integrates seamlessly with the fork crown while generating another air foil which is capable of reducing wind resistance even more. The fork’s brake entry hole is hidden by the down tube, which keeps it clean and well protected.
