Wilier introduces the new 2011 Gran Turismo for the sole purpose of delivering to the riding public stiffness in an efficient high quality performance road race frame—which gives room for comfort and maneuverability over far and long rides. Wilier promises performance with comfort and lateral stiffness with vertical stability, never leaving sportiveness and style for granted.

The Gran Turismo adapts the asymmetric seat stay of the top rated Cento I and is equipped with what Wilier describes as a ‘Razor Edge design’ up front, which could be elaborately seen as a series of sharp edges on its main frame and semi-aero fork.

Louis Garneau tested the Gennix T1 Pro Bike numerous times to make it aerodynamically one of the fastest bike on the market. Sporting the Fluid Flow tubing profile to tackle crosswinds well, it used Exo-Nerv NVM construction to make it light and durable.

For more stiffness, Louis Garneau used ultra-high modulus carbon and Nano bonding. For maximizing power transfer, there’s an oversized Press-fit bottom bracket that permits better air flow around it.

TT Geometry is applied for the Gennix T1 Pro with a multi-position seat post and total integration of all cables and parts, making it extra smooth looking. It has an internal cable routing system, a wide fork and monocoque construction for less turbulence, better rigidity and steering.

Compliant with UCI standards, the Gennix T1 Pro bike has a Vision Vector base bar, clip-on, TRP brakeset and Shimano Dura-Ace 10speed drivetrain.
