The road bike frame epitomises the body of your racing bike! To it are fitted the equipment (such as the wheels), the components (drivetrain, brakes), plus all the other peripheral components (such as the stem, bar, seat post and saddle). Its design significantly determines the overall behaviour (stiffness, response etc.) of your machine. The shape (volume and geometry) of the frame’s tubes (saddle, head, top, and down tubes, plus the seat and chain stays) have significantly evolved over the last fifteen/twenty years, due to the manufacturers’ quest for aerodynamics. Their material has also changed during the same period with the advent of carbon, for its weight saving and strength compared to alloy, titanium and steel.
The road bike frame – The perpetual search for aerodynamics, stiffness and light weight
Unlike the round tubes of the standard frames of the past, the design of a road bike frame today benefits from years of research and product development. At the top end of the range, the bike frame is like a racing car, whose design in space is studied so that it has as little air resistance as possible! The aero lines of the Wilier Cento1Air or the Massi Arrow, both available on the Probikeshop, make them high performance models to slice through the air on the flat! Other more versatile models (weight, comfort, stiffness) are also available!
