Wilier Zero.6 110 SRAM Red eTap Complete Road Bike - 2017 description:
Wilier put itself in a bit of a difficult position leading up to its 110th anniversary this year. After the Zero family managed to drop significant weight with each new generation, the iconic Italian brand was left with the task of creating a successor to the throne of the Zero. 7 that would pay homage to its quietly illustrious history. After two years of development, Wilier engineers managed to do it, giving us the Zero. 6 110 SRAM Red eTap Complete Road Bike.

It was bred to corner aggressively and act decisively on everything from sweeping descents to punchy climbs, and now it's lighter than ever. With the Zero. 7, Wilier had maxed out what it could do with its carbon layup process, so trimming weight yet again necessitated revisiting the carbon itself. Together with Mitsubishi, Wilier engineers developed a new material known as Dialed, which it derived from a base material known as Pitch. Pitch itself consists of a blend of high-purity High-, and Ultra-High-Modulus fiber. It then integrated Dialed with materials we've seen Wilier trust before, including 60T carbon fiber and SEI film, using different...
