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...

The story of Wilier Triestina

Technologies

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.

Technologies

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.

Technologies

zno traitment

What we commonly refer to as “carbon” is actually a composite of fibers and epoxy resin. The resin’s function is to join and bond the fibers, as well as protect the overall structure from external forces. In order to avoid potential points of weakness that could result from micro-gaps in a composite layup, we’ve implemented an ultra low density nanoparticle Zinc Oxide (“ZnO”) resin. This results in a stronger composite with higher resistance to impact while enabling us to reduce the weight of our frames due to its superior structural integrity. What this means out on the road is improved durability and amazingly responsive handling - the hallmark of our frames.

Technologies

Easy adjust

Wilier Triestina still insisted on a design that allowed for fine-tuning of rear wheel position and therefore of the cogset’s orientation in relation to the rear derailleur. This enables optimal wheel alignment, aerodynamic positioning and smooth shifting. Thanks to our innovative solution providing 6mm of adjustability, wheel base and distance from tire to the rear of our truncated seat tube airfoil are customizable. This enables both aerodynamic and bike handling optimizations, as well as making wheel changes fast and simple.

Technologies

FSS

Floating Suspension System

In this system the shock absorber is not anchored directly onto the frame at a certain point, but floats between two links connecting the rear stays. This unusual design boosts pedal power (and therefore effectiveness when riding uphill) because it gives the bike a low bobbing level and a low pedal kick back. The perfect system for what we wanted to achieve! The utmost efficacy riding downhill and high pedal yield riding uphill, in or out of the saddle.

BB 386

The BB386EVO system takes the oversized bottom bracket design concept, which was successfully introduced by Wilier Triestina in the Cento1 model and subsequent variations, to its next evolution. To obtain an unprecedented stiffness at a crucial point of the frame, we have devised an innovative system that can perfectly incorporate an ultra-stiff crank into an ultra-stiff frame. The traditional BB30 system proved inadequate because it requires a frame with a 68 mm box, which is too narrow to deliver the degree of stiffness that we wanted. With this in mind, we developed the new standard BB386EVO in collaboration with FSA, which pairs a carbon crank with a longer 30 mm spindle and a wider 86.5 mm bottom bracket box.
