Built on the foundation of the long-established Scenario, the new Aero from Storck is an interesting challenger in the ever-growing TT market.

Claiming to be the stiffest time trial bike in the world, the aero shape and tube profiling is claimed to channel air around the rider effectively too.

Featuring internal cabling as well as an aero seat tube and integrated headset, Storck seem to have used every trick in the book to make this as aero as possible.

Surprisingly, a regular, round 31.8 seatpost is used but with a shroud around it, keeping the aero shape. A sculptured head tube leads to a broad top tube.

The down tube and seat tube are formed into a wide diamond shape that helps both stiffness and aerodynamics.

The own-brand forks have been designed with as much foresight as the rest of the frame, high stress areas getting a wider cross section for strength.

Available as a frameset only or built up with your choice of components. RRP is £2,598.
