Those who own a Wilier know that they didn’t choose just any bike. They know that the symbol of the halberd is part of the history of cycling,and a history more than a century old.

There are lots of suspension systems available to frameset makers on the full suspension market. There are simple systems and very complex ones, and each has its pros and cons. It’s not easy to choose among the many different systems available, unless you know what you’re doing. The idea Wilier Triestina’s engineers had in mind when...

Technologies

smooth reardesign

This special technology is applied on the rear arms. It dampens and dissipates vibrations over all kinds of road surfaces.

LIT

We’ve also leveraged LIT (Large Inflation Tube) technology in the making of the Cento1 Superleggera. Our prepreg carbons benefit from even higher and more uniform compaction through the use of industrial, high pressure bladders. The bladders expand from within the frame’s tubing, pushing against the inner walls of the tubes as the frame mould exerts opposing pressure from the outside. The combined compaction- forces result in a precision, lower-void construction and consistent wall thickness of the tubes throughout the frame’s construction. More traditional carbon manufacturing processes fail to optimally compact a composite, resulting in varied wall thicknesses, or voids (undesirable resin deposits), along a frame’s tubing that compromise structural integrity. That could translate into reduced longevity and strength. So the advantages of the Cento1 SL’s construction are obvious: increased capacity to handle stresses, optimal torsional stiffness, and unparalleled responsiveness.

Integrated seatpost concept

We believe that a bicycle targeted to professionals should offer the best performances from every standpoint. An integrated seatpost allows the frame to achieve these peak performances, by supplying an ideal balance of mechanical operations, weight and comfort. Cento1 SR’s new integrated seatpost also offers improved aerodynamics thanks to the special truncated tail design.

IF integrated fork

The handling of a Wilier bike is one of its most treasured attributes. We continually search for ways to further improve the solid feel at the front end, which has led to some of the most significant of the Cento1 SR’s enhancements. We found that a new way of positioning the down tube and top tube with respect to the head tube creates a virtual increase of the head tube’s height, which makes it 14% stiffer in terms of torsional rigidity. The top tube approaches the head tube at a downward angle while the down tube is angled upwards as it joins the head tube and the Integrated Fork. This junction is traditionally like the point of a triangle, but this new angle and positioning makes it more like a square, which is stiffer. The back of the fork’s brake hole is tucked into the down tube, keeping it clean and protected from the elements. The Integrated Fork design also creates an aerodynamic profile that reduces drag. Drawing from research implemented in development of our Twin Blade, the Cento1 SR’s fork legs are designed for optimal stability and aerodynamics. Like the proven Kamm truncated tail concept implemented in our time trial models, both the Cento1 SR’s integrated seatmast and fork legs benefit from this structural innovation, thereby attaining a perfect balance of lightweight, aerodynamics and steerability.

carbon 46 ton

The strongest, most resilient carbon fiber. The name of Mitsubishi’s wonder-composite conveys its ability to withstand 46 tons of pressure per cubic millimeter.We implement 46 TON in the construction of our bikes for unequaled strength, stability and durability.
