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 60 ton

To build a great monocoque carbon frame, we look for the perfect balance of stiffness, comfort and responsiveness at the lightest possible weight. Carbon fiber is an ideal material for bicycle frames because of its qualities of elasticity, capacity to withstand stresses, and its strength-to-weight ratio. The higher the modulus, the stiffer the composite. On the other end of the spectrum, the lower the modulus, the more elastic it will be. In the construction of the Cento1 Superleggera, we implemented MR60H for stiffness in the critical stress areas where lateral stiffness equates to greater efficiency. Then we used T800H and T700SC, with more elastic characteristics, to ensure comfort and sure-footed handling. Each was used as minimally as possible once our demanding strength and durability standards were met, ensuring the lightest weight frame possible.

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.

asymmetric rear arms

Wilier road bikes are famous for their front ends. Our integrated head tube and fork designs equate to unrivaled steerability for confident cornering and descending. The oversized, squared profile that characterizes our fork crowns and that flows into the base of our head tubes maximizes strength and stability at a key fulcrum point.

THT

Tapered Head Tube provides increased stiffness to the bottom of the head tube for enhanced steering and stability.

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.

SEI special elastic infiltra

Zero.7 marks the implementation of an exclusive new Wilier Triestina technology: S.E.I. Film (Special Elastic Infiltrated). The injection of a proprietary viscoelastic film between layers of carbon increases vibration absorption and impact resistance, therefore making the frame safer and more comfortable. This new material has already been widely tested in the aeronautical and automotive industries with excellent results. It is now being applied in the construction of bicycles for the first time.
