WILIER Filante SLR Unico

Unico is where art and technology come together. However, at times, a bike is already a work of art and its creator an artist. In 1921, Shozaburo Shimano did not realise he was one of them. It was the passing of time that consecrated him among those who best combined pure bicycle technology with a far-reaching aesthetic concept. But, then again, Japan is the ideal place not only to pursue technical perfection but a natural project of aesthetic beauty as well.

Moreover, southern Japan also possessed other fundamental qualities. Sakai, where Shimano Iron Works was founded, is less than ten miles from the centre of commercial relations established in 1868 between the West and Japan: the port of Osaka. The bicycle was one of the novelties from Europe that landed on the Japanese docks of Osaka Bay at the start of the 20th century

 

 In 1973, Dura-Ace crossed the seas in the opposite direction and entered the world of European professional cycling, imposing Shimano as the most important partner for transmission components. Dura–Ace is the symbol of the Shimano family, from Shozaburo to his son Shozo and down to Yoshizo, and is proof of how unique and extraordinary one can be when it comes to creation, one of the words behind which hides what we call art. To celebrate in the best possible way the one hundred years of Shimano Iron Works, Wilier Triestina has created a special Unico frame, entrusting it to the craftsmanship of an artist who fully represents Japan's centuries-old traditions but who is knowingly projected into the future. For this important anniversary, the new addition to the Wilier Triestina Unico series is by Jun Inoue.

Aerodynamic

Filante SLR was designed to maximise aerodynamic performance in real environmental conditions. The design was based on data recorded in the wind tunnel (where the wind is very clean for homogeneous empirical results) while also taking the real world into account. In this way, we not only evaluate typical wind tunnel data (yaw angles from -20° to + 20°), but also consider environmental turbulence that impacts the bike for many different reasons.
That’s why we redesigned the profiles, starting with the standard NACA airfoils/ KAMM tail that no longer have sharp edges on the back. The softened angles improve performance even when the air flow is disturbed.
The inside of the front fork has been widened by 7 mm, making it 13.6% wider than the Cento10PRO. In doing so, we moved the fork blades away from the wheel, reducing turbulence and improving aerodynamics.

LIGHTWEIGHT AND RESPONSIVE

The new aerodynamically optimised profiles helped us eliminate extra weight in the frame’s construction. The shape has no sharp edges, therefore requires less material and less resin in the corners. This improves homogeneity of the inside, reducing the frame’s weight to a mere 870 grams.
The assembled bike with top-of-the-range specifications weighs 6.8 kg.
The Filante monocoque handlebar is made of the same carbon we use for the Wilier 0 SLR. Thanks to the different types of carbon we used in combination with the Liquid-Crystal Polymer, the unique fibre positioning and the construction technology, we have reached an absolute level of lightness and stiffness.
The lower overall weight compared to the exceptional stiffness increases STW by 12.5%. This improvement is clearly felt with the steering precision and the feeling of safety at high speeds.

240 FITTINGS AVAILABLE

Since the fork steerer tube is no longer bevelled, we can install up to 35 mm of spacers under the handlebar. By combining frame sizes, handlebar sizes and spacers, we can achieve 240 different fittings, with no overlap between combinations. This doubles with the two available seat posts, with 15 mm or 0 mm setback.

HANDLEBAR AND INTEGRATED CABLES

In addition to being lightweight, (350 grams for the 101x42 size) the new integrated carbon monocoque Filante Bar handlebar houses the brake and derailleur cables, directing them toward the inside of the frame. Its design is very simple, with sinuous and rounded lines for maximum grip ergonomics.

EASY-FIT SPACERS

The spacers between the frame headset and the handlebar are made of a high-stiffness composite material, with a special cavity for the cables. They are composed of two parts for quick assembly and disassembly without interfering with the cables running from the handlebar to the frame.

BALANCED DESIGN

Six sizes, one feeling. The sections of the tubes of various sizes were designed to maintain consistent rigidity, handling quality and comfort on every frame size.
