Wilier Zero 6
680 GRAMS: A FRAME THAT CHALLENGES THE LIMITS OF THE POSSIBLE
It is not difficult to eliminate 100 grams from a standard frame. We have done it many times over the years. But if we have to take 100 grams off a frame that weighs less than 800 grams, the going gets tough, if not impossible. We are talking about almost 15% of the total weight. It has been possible only by exploiting two dedicated years of research, testing and road-trials. A new carbon fibre called DIALED™, produced by Mitsubishi Japan and blended with a new production process has finally allowed us to reach this target weight. But the biggest challenge has been to combine this lightness with the extreme manoeuvrability and exceptional handling that
has made our products famous the world over. This then not only involved research into reducing the weight, but also into our production process and the finest constructional details of the frame. The Zero.6 comes with a unique matt black finishing, polished decals and copper highlighting to recall the iconic colours of the very first Wilier Triestina bikes. In addition, to mark the whole 110th anniversary project, the fork will carry the specially created logo for this commemorative project. The Zero.6 will be offered to the public equipped with top of the range Campagnolo, Shimano and Sram transmissions.
