How do you celebrate 110 years in business? You can start by taking nearly 110g off the weight of your flagship bike, which is exactly what Wilier Triestina has done with their new Zero.6. Besting their previous Zero.7 by 100g, the Limited Edition frame is seriously light.

Founded in 1906 by Pietro Dal Molin, Wilier has had a memorable history with its ups and downs like many bicycle manufactures after the world wars and the explosion of motorized scooters soon after. Based out of Rossano Veneto, Italy, the now called “Wilier Triestina”, has established itself as a strong contender in competitive cycling having had such a long racing heritage. In recent years, Wilier Triestina crossed the line first at the 2008 World Road Championships under Alessandro Ballan and today they are the weapon of choice for the United Healthcare pro cycling team.

Check out the specs and details on how they created the beautiful, feather-light, Limited Edition Zero.6 and the REALLY cool swag they throw in with it…

In a world where profit and sales are all that seems to matter, a company like Wilier turns that notion on its head by building something like the copper Superleggera that bleeds Italian passion. The 110 year anniversary Limited Edition Zero.6 is no different except that it oozes as much technology as it does that passion. Last year’s Zero.7 was impressive enough coming in at under 800g, and coming back a year later to knock an additional 100g off of an already light frame was no easy feat. Working with Mitsubishi Japan they use a new carbon material called “DIALED”, that along with a new production process, has allowed them build a frame almost 15% lighter.

The Limited Edition Zero.6’s flat black frame with copper accents date back to their early signature company colors and it’s hard to argue that the aesthetics of this bike aren’t drool worthy. The special 110th anniversary logos are kept simple letting the bike as a whole make the statement.

With only 200 Limited Editions available, these are sure to go fast to die-hard Wilier fans. They come with your choice of 3 builds: the ever traditional mechanical Campagnolo Super Record, Shimano’s Dura Ace Di2, or SRAM’s new RED eTap and can be had in XS, S, M & L frame sizes.

Those lucky enough to get their hands on one of the 200 Zero.6’s will also receive this Montegrappa pen writing instrument. A centenarian brand (since 1912) from Bassano del Grappa, Italy, Montegrappa is one of the most famous and prestigious companies producing pens that can well exceed $100,000. The Miya Carbon pen that comes with the Zero.6 is a special edition created specifically to celebrate Wilier’s 110th anniversary making it a collectible as well.

To think 10.5K is “not bad” for a bike really shows how far bike prices have come, but…..not bad! That really is a sweet looking bike!

“Italian passion” made in…where’s it made? No one’s saying. Huh.

Archetypical example of cable routing. Bike designers should study this bike.
