Combining aero design, endurance-race comfort, and powerful stiffness into one package isn’t a simple task, or one that’s easy to describe, but, like the good Germans they are, Storck came up with a name for such a contraption: the Aernario. In reality, the Aernario concept isn’t totally new, but the Aernario Disc Road Bike Frameset is, having been redesigned to be mounted with disc brakes that let you ride harder, faster, and more confidently. Before we get into the brakes, though, let’s cover the frame. Storck designed the Aernario Disc to be an endurance racer, which means it has to be aerodynamic–small amounts of drag add up over hundreds of miles–and comfortable, for obvious reasons. Trouble is, aero frames are notoriously stiff and uncomfortable. To solve this quandary, Storck designed the Aernario with a CFR/UD unidirectional carbon-fiber layup. By laying all the carbon fibers down in parallel, Storck gave the Aernario serious stiffness, but also dramatically improved its ability to dampen vibration, so you can ride it hard and long without serious discomfort. Additionally, the frame is molded in monocoque, a one-piece construction that saves weight be reducing the number of joints and amount of material used. Aerodynamic efficiency comes, simply, from the shape of the tubes. The Aernario employs what’s called Sectional Aerodynamic Shaping, which manages to endow the frame with an aero teardrop profile that takes shape horizontally instead of vertically, so you get aero benefits without the unflattering aero look. Each tube also features Storck’s Proportional Tubing Concept, which basically means every wall, diameter, and taper is finely tuned to ensure smooth ride quality and efficient power transfer. As for the brakes, Storck didn’t just slap on discs and call it good. It added a rear thru-axle and burly bottom bracket to take the added torsion of stronger brakes without flexing, which in turn allowed the seatstays to be scandalously thin, which me…
