Looking for the perfect all rounder, a super road bike deal on a bike to stand out a little, a deft climber, sprinter and comfortable ride. Consider the Wilier Triestina GTR SL and be surprised Italian design does not automatically equate to high prices.
High Modulus Carbon frame of only 990 grams, featuring squared tubes around the bottom bracket area, and by adding sharper edges to the frame, torsional stiffness is vastly improved on the GTR SL. The massive bottom bracket area allowed Wilier Triestina to design larger asymmetric chain stays. The asymmetric chain stays improve the pedal stroke efficiency by balancing the chain generated torque.
The rear stays are designed to be comfortable but stiff at the same time to ensure optimal ride quality. A differential thickness of the stays allows Wilier engineers to fine tune the ride feel. Near the seat tube, the stays are larger to ensure stiffness and efficiency, but moving away from the seat tube, they taper to a thinner profile, allowing maximum absorption of the vertical stresses.
The rear triangle has been designed to accept 28mm tyres, in line with the latest trend allowing the bike to be used in the growing “gravel bike” sector. The GTR SL can be become the ideal set up for rides on rough or gravel roads.
