Wilier Cento 10 NDR Review

Wilier takes a radical approach to increased comfort with the Cento 10 NDR's built-in rear suspension

With an increase in global numbers of older recreational cyclists looking for a premium road bike, Wilier sees this as a growing market for its products. Many won’t want the race-oriented geometry that you find on those top end-road bikes that are often consumer versions of the bikes ridden by pro teams. The Wilier Cento 10 NDR builds on the design features of the brand’s successful race bikes to offer a more endurance-focussed ride. It follows the modern endurance trends, offering a more relaxed riding position, wider tyres and disc braking.

At the beating heart of the endurance frame is the "Actiflex" rear suspension, designed to enhance comfort in the frame. The system uses an alloy linkage between the seatpost and seatstays that has two pivots so that the two can move relative to each other. The pivot points are built into the carbon layup of the seat tube and seatstays. It’s designed with widely spaced hinge bolts so that rear-end rigidity is maintained.
