These pictures and the following mini-descriptions of Wilier’s 2012 road bikes come courtesy of their UK PR firm taken from their recent dealer event, so if the wordage seems promotional, take it at face value, it’s all we’ve got at the moment.
ZERO 7: The lightest frame Wilier have ever made. The first bike in the world to incorporate SEI (Special Elastic Infiltration) technology which absorbs road shock to give an exceptionally smooth ride with super light weight, stiffness & efficiency. The bike also features the FSA 386 EVO crank & BB system
CENTO 1: A modern day classic, the superb handling Cento 1 is now available as a complete bike at £3.5k equipped with the Athena 11sp groupset, ready to race or take on the Etape.
GRAN TURISMO: (Not Shown) Following on from a very successful start in 2011, the GT is now available fitted with Athena components at £2999 or with the new Centaur 2012 group at £2699.
IZOARD XP: The very popular Izoard XP is now available in two Shimano builds featuring Ultegra or 105 componentry. For Campag riders, there are also bikes with Centaur 2012 or Xenon groups & a stunning new colourway for 2012.
LA TRIESTINA: An all new frame for 2012, the new La Triestina has full internal cable routing & super-smooth welding on a lightweight, triple butted frameset. Fitted with a 105 drivetrain this is a great looking mid range bike.
MONTEGRAPPA: Another new frame for 2012, this is a great looking double butted frameset with a choice of either Shimano Sora or Campagnolo Xenon components.
