Prototype Wilier Turbine SLR Time Trial Bike Spotted

Wilier’s latest prototype time trail bike called the Turbine SLR, was spotted during stage 2 of last weekend’s Giro d’Italia, combining the front-end attributes of the Italian brand’s outgoing Turbine with a much more traditional rear-triangle.

“The Turbine SLR is much faster on roads with slopes and continuous changes of direction, while less weight means greater acceleration,” claims Wilier.

While the front end of the Turbine SLR appears to be unchanged compared to the current model, featuring the same hinged fork and large, truncated aerofoil downtube, the new frame suggests the addition of proprietary carbon fiber time trial extensions, as evidenced by some of the Team Astana bikes.
