AERNARIO PLATINUM 2016 - $5,499 USD
The Aernario Platinum us the ultimate all-rounder. Markus Storck has managed to create the ultimate balance of an Aero frame that’s light, and also a Stiff frame that’s still comfortable where it needs to be. This is why the Aernario has won so many awards from Road.cc’s Super Bike of the year 2014/15 to Germany’s ‘Tour’ Magazine test “The best frame of all time according to Tour standard” (Tour Magazine, Feb 2013).
Germany’s ‘Tour’ Magazine is widely regarded as one of the leading Test Publication of everything bicycle related. In the 20 year history of the magazine they summed up the Aernario Platinum: “The balanced properties of the Storck and its combination of excellent comfort, superb road-holding and good handling are not approached by the other racing machines,” writes ‘Tour’ magazine.
Taking the Aernario Pro and making further improvements was always going to be a challenge to Markus Storck. To then improve it to an extent that it beat the 2012 ‘Best Bike in the World’ title which Storck already owned (Fascenario 0.6) was the goal. Using the highest modular Carbon Fibres and the most advanced resins with meticulous lay-up techniques, the Platinum Edition provides razor Sharp handling, ground parallel aero dynamics, stiffness and vibration dampening with a frame weight of just 790 grams.

Storck Aernario Platinum – Road.cc review:
"The Storck Aernario Platinum is an astonishingly good bike. Light, stiff, comfortable - it's all of them. If only the best will do, this could be the bike for you."
Mat Brett’s review of the Aernario Platinum places it amongst the best bikes Road.cc have ever tested. The Aernario Platinum received a 10/10 rating in no less than 7 out of 10 categories. The frame produced the best test results in power transfer, sprinting, high speed stability, flat cornering, cornering on descents and overall performance – a truly stunning review.
The Storck Aernario Platinum is an astonishingly good bike. Of course, if you're paying this kind of money you've every right to expect it to be, but even in the realm of superbikes this is something special. It really is hard to pinpoint any negatives (aside from the price tag). Sadly, I don't have 10 grand to spend on a bike, but if I did, this would be on my shortlist: possibly a shortlist of one!"
