Wilier has announced the release of its lightest road bike so far called the Zero7 this 2011. Though the weight was made incredibly light, the bike’s ride performance is not compromised. This is achieved through the use of BB386 that was developed alongside FSA.

Very stiff, the Zero.7 has an almost zero loss when all of the rider’s power is moved to the rear wheel. The bike is constructed with Special Elastic Infiltrated (SEI), a new carbon layup technology that absorbs road vibration by placing a viscoelastic layer is in between carbon layers.

While it uses a tapered head tube and steerer, the 2011 Wilier Triestina Zero.7 features a 1-1/8in to 1-1/4in dimension instead of the commonly used 1-1/2in on traditional tapered frames. Uniformity and compaction are enhanced by the Large Inflatable Tube construction used to mold the Zero.7 frame.

Wilier has unveiled a new bike called the 2012 Wilier Zero 7, which uses the new bottom bracket standard developed by FSA and BH. A special elastic film called the SEI Film is sandwiched between carbon layers in the tubes to help reduce vibration without adding much weight.

Wilier’s sponsored race teams will not use the bike so it is not crafted with the dated minimum weight restrictions that the racing’s international governing body imposes. For a medium painted frame, the frame will be very light, in under 800g.

Enhanced in the 2012 Wilier Zero 7 is its impact strength and interlaminate sheer strength. BB386EVO FSA crankset and ZnO / 60 ton Mitsubishi material help Zero 7 achieve combined outstanding stiffness with outstanding vibration damping properties in its very light frame.
