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.
