Designed to meet the demands of the new market segment of e-bike enthusiasts, the Aero e-road bike's clean and essential design features fully-integrated cable routing and a frame designed to optimise aerodynamics without sacrificing riding comfort. These stand out qualities are seamlessly combined with the lightest electric powertrain in the world, the WattAssist Pro by HPS, and the typical, meticulous attention to detail of ARES Modena's projects, making the new Aero a unique bike.
Like the Super Leggera, the new ARES Aero by HPS also benefits from the pedal assistance of the WattAssist Pro electric motor, the revolutionary system developed by HPS using technologies and materials directly derived from the world of motorsport and aerospace engineering.
The uniqueness of the WattAssist Pro system lies in the miniaturisation of its components and its placement. The compact and lightweight motor, battery and electronic controls are housed in the frame, allowing the weight to be consolidated near the bottom bracket, lowering the bike's centre of gravity and ultimately delivering an exceptionally well-balanced ride and dynamic handling.
The WattAssist Pro system provides up to 200 watts of assistance, adjustable via the bespoke interface on the Garmin computer. Thanks to an extensive road test programme, the HPS-developed software does not alter the dynamics when the motor is activated, providing feedback similar to that of a traditional high-end road bike.
Its livery, a modern and uncompromised style, is a clear reference to the supercars produced by the Modenese atelier. Two colours are available for the frame, both with a matte finish: Frozen White and Gunmetal Grey. As with every project in the ARES Modena range, the Aero is fully customisable. Clients can request a fully bespoke project based on their needs and preferences. From design to the finishes, including frame size and the choice of the components, ARES and HPS will deliver an entirely tailor-made bike.
The ARES Aero by HPS will be produced in a limited series of 24 units.
