The problem with the above list is that it's not all apples for apples. We don't know how the SystemSix, Noah Fast Disc or the Madone SLR disc tested with Zipp 404's. The numbers for all of the '16 tests were using the 404 reference wheel. The '19 Venge disc and '19 S5 disc both tested at 206w and 203w respectively with Zipp 404 wheels.rudye9mr wrote: ↑Wed Jul 03, 2019 7:00 pmlittle bit of a bump but any updates to the list?ryanw wrote: ↑Tue Dec 18, 2018 10:56 pmAll tested at 45kph:

I think what might be more important, based on the current impetus of manufacturer sales, is to better understand the aero results (or lack thereof) of the lightweight bikes. Tour mag tested the SL6 to be about 16w slower than the Venge Vias. Cycling weekly tested it to be about 18w slower than the Vias. I'm looking forward to seeing some independent data on the new crop of integrated lightweight bikes.
My opinion is that none of them will best the Pinarello F10 (213w) or F10 disc (214w) - maybe equal it at best?
The Canyon Aeroad is still a heck of a bargain even if it is getting long in the tooth.
