As one of a few teams whose main sponsor is the bike brand their riding, Wilier Triestina-Selle Italia kept the car, van and bike branding focused on what they’re riding. Throw in fellow Italian brand Ursus wheels and their use of the very popular Vittoria tubulars, and you’ve got a mostly Italian set of bikes.
The Wilier Cento10Air is their aero road bike, which gained a disc brake version that came with a micro-suspension rear end to tame the cobbles. For the Giro D’Italia, though, they were running the premium rim brake model, which includes their integrated bar/stem and cable routing system for some of the riders. It’s not the chromed red and silver edition from last year’s Giro, but still pretty sweet looking.
Most riders stick the numbers off the back of the post, but apparently that’s not the requirement.
Integrated or not, Wilier makes some giant stems. The aero seatpost comes from Ritchey. The GPS computer is Bryton, sitting on a Bar Fly mount.
Opt for the integrated front end and the shift cables run directly into the headtube and through the frame, not seeing the light of day until they reach the derailleur. This handy adjustment knob makes fine tuning the rear while riding possible. Opt for Di2 and this panel is replaced with a holder for the control box and charging port. All of these options are available on stock bikes, just know that the integration and hidden cables mean the bike has a straight 1-1/4″ bearing setup top and bottom, not your normal tapered headset.
They’re running Shimano Dura-Ace all around. Note the cable entry port on the downtube, which is the third option if you’re running mechanical shifting and a standard stem and handlebar.
The Ursus Miura TS37 Special Edition wheels are a limited colorway made for the 2018 Giro D’Italia. They’re carbon tubulars measuring 37mm deep, 24mm wide and come in at a claimed weight of 605g F/730g R. Hubs are alloy, made in house by Ursus, and get SKF bearings inside. They’re available for sale for around $1,700.
The all-new Wilier Turbine debuted just two weeks before the start of this year’s Giro, and is one of the growing crop of disc brake-only TT bikes. They still offer two rim brake TT/triathlon bikes, but this is their top of the line model and distinct from the other two.
They’re one of the first bikes at retail and in the peloton we’ve seen with the latest Shimano Di2 TT parts, including the new SW-R9160 bar end shifters. Those are paired with the new 9180 hydro brake levers, which also include a shift button.
When you’ve invested in a power meter set up that’s produced years of data, many riders stick with older cranks. It’s still Dura-Ace, but not as new as the rest of the drivetrain.
