A distinctive feature of the Wilier Zero SLR is its lightweight frame: weighing in at under 800 grams in the medium matte black version, Wilier Zero SLR is the most distinguished member of Wilier Triestina’s range of super lightweight frames. In fact, in its most advanced configuration, the entire bike tips the scales at a mere 6.5 kg.
One of the trends most highly appreciated by the public at large is the search for extreme clean lines. Already in 2016, Wilier Triestina started down this road (one of the first bike manufacturers worldwide to do so) with Cento10AIR, inserting the brake and derailleur cables inside the monocoque handlebar which was integrated in the frame. With the Wilier Zero SLR, we raised the bar, pairing total integration with the lightest frame, fork and handlebar ever. We've re-engineered and evolved all these elements allowing integration: the Zero integrated handlebar, composite handlebar spacers and the section of the frame headset.
STIFFNESS TO WEIGHT
High STW values are synonymous with performance in carbon frames. Most of the time, we add material to increase a frame’s stiffness, thus increasing its weight. But, when weight is to be reduced, stiffness is at risk, and consequently, handling and handling safety as well.
On the Wilier Zero SLR, thanks to the blend of carbons, the unique positioning of the fibres and the construction technology, we have succeeded in attaining the highest level of lightness and stiffness, exceeding the STW value of our previous Zero.7 and Zero.6 models by 24%.
