Developed in conjunction with SwissSide, the Storck Aerfast.4 was introduced at Eurobike 2021 as the first bike to ever measure under 200 watts of power needed to maintain 45km/h (their claim, tested by SwissSide). Excluding whatever your own personal (physical) aerodynamics do to, um, drag that down (up?), it means the bike needs just 199 watts of power output to hold 28mph.
Builds and prices for the original models started around €5,300 and went up, each getting their latest integrated cockpit, too. Now, they’re offering the Aerfast.4 Platinum for discerning (rich) customers, and a Comp model for the rest of us.
The Aerfast.4 Comp gets a lower level carbon fiber, but shares the same molds and shapes. It’s finished with a simple matte black color with black graphics, and mid-range components for builds starting at €4,199 and running up to €5,299 depending on build.
The Platinum models (appear to) use the same carbon layup as the original model, but with upgraded spec to the tune of Ultregra or Dura-Ace Di1 groups. Prices from €7,499 to €9,299, including VAT.
