The renown Italian brand, Wilier Triestina, unveiled its GTR range of “sportive” bikes today, encompassing four new models.
Branded the SL, GTR Team, GTR Disc and GTR, the goal of Wiler’s new range, is to target the ever increasing endurance sector of cycling.
Robust geometry (i.e. shorter top tube/taller head tube), unique tube shapes and profiles, an oversized BB86 bottom bracket and internal cable routing with electronic groupset capability – punctuate the whole GTR range.
However, what distinguishes each model is the trickle down in carbon fiber composition, component groupset and disc brake option.
The GTR SL will be available in the United States in two builds: the GTR SL Shimano Ultegra DI2 equipped model retailing for $4,749, and the GTR SL Ultegra mechanical model at $3499.
The GTR Team Ultegra model will retail at $2,749, while the Shimano 105 equipped model will retail at $2,299.
ITALIAN TECHNOLOGY TAKING IT TO THE NEXT EVOLUTION
Whether you race or not, the GTR SL or GTR TEAM is aimed for the rider who needs a bike for multiple uses. Light and responsive for the racer, yet comfortable and versatile for those who enjoy cycling without stress. The GTR SL and GTR TEAM are identical in geometry and sizing, coming from the same carbon mold. They differ in the carbon composition: GTR SL uses a 60 TON / 46 TON carbon blend, to produce a frame weight of 990 grams. The GTR TEAM uses a 46 TON / 30 TON carbon blend, producing a frame weight of 1190 grams. Utilizing Wilier Triestina’s carbon expertise, two frames can be offered with the same construction technologies but with a difference in weight, performance, and price.
