Storck Improves Aerodynamics and Adopts Disc Brakes for New Aerfast.3 Road Bike

Storck has unveiled its latest road bike called the Aerfast.3, touting reduced weight and improved aerodynamics, along with the adoption of disc brakes, a move that’s been cautious for the boutique German brand.

After spending considerable time in the wind-tunnel, the new Aerfast.3 emerged with new tube shapes and profiles, as well as full cable integration courtesy of the brand’s own RBSU Aerfast3 carbon stem and handlebar set-up.

As a result, Storck says the Aerfast.3’s reduced aerodynamic signature yields a claimed 11 watt reduction in power output to maintain 45 km/h.

In addition to improving the Aerfast.3’s wind cheating capabilities and aesthetic appeal, Storck was also successful in reducing frame weight while also increasing stiffness in key areas, as much as 14% in the area of the fuselage. 

Ditto for the new seatpost design, which claims to have benefitted from both better compliance and added stiffness as well. 

The new Aerfast.3 will be offered in two complete bikes, the gold accented Pro that starts at 5,698€, and the matte black Comp model that begins at 3,499€, while just a frameset can be purchased for 2,699€.
