DESCRIPTION:

 

For the Twin Blade leadout.. it starts with a Frameset like no other! Now a days to break out of the pack, there is quite the impressive selection for road rides that are up to the racing task at hand. For Wilier gone are the concepts of slimmer and smaller mean more aerodynamic. As the industry is rapidly evolving in understanding drag and the evolution in thinking about how to address the issue, it’s perhaps best expressed in the 2015 Twin Blade Road setup. Instead of dealing with drag by trying to hide from it with minimized tube shapes, the Wilier designers have accepted it and are now wanting to manage it. Their thinking extends beyond the frame, though, encompassing all elements to include even the rotational motion of the wheels.

 

 

 

Wilier Twin Blade Frameset 2015

 

The Wilier shaping of tubes and general layup are what you would expect from a top-tier TT model. They employed the same 60-ton carbon fiber here as their flagship Zero.7 model, while the Twin Blade benefits from the same targeted use of lower-modulus carbon. As the team at Wilier were wise to utilize it in areas where its incorporation nets gains in comfort without sacrificing efficiency.

 

The Twin Blade’s carbon construction begins by incorporating Zinc Oxide nanoparticle epoxy resin (ZnO) into the layups to improve impact resistance and reduce the amount of complementary, lower-modulus carbon needed for a compliant ride. It continues with a technique called LIT (Large Inflatable Tube). As the name implies, LIT involves inflating a tube-like bladder inside while it’s in the carbon mold. This compacts the material from both sides and creates a uniform wall thickness that eliminates structurally compromising resin deposits and excess material. Both bits of tech underwrite the Cento1 family’s heritage, and it’s yet one more technology that the Twin Blade shares with the Zero.7.

 

 

Wilier Twin Blade Fork

 

 

The biggest departure from what other manufacturers are doing with TT rides is in the front end, with the fork. This configuration of the Twin Blade Fork is very similar to a dual-crown downhill fork, with the fork legs extending up alongside the headtube to bolt directly to the handlebars. Rather than throwing the headtube naked into the wind, the engineers have stated the Twin Blade Fork directs air around it. It also makes for a very precise feel to the steering, since there are essentially no additional angles introduced by a stem between the handlebars and fork.

 

 

 

Wilier Twin Blade 2015

 

To finish it off, the structural integrity of the fork is clearly a step above the competition. While the Twin Blade attaches directly to the TT-bar, their split fork legs improve front-end stiffness, so the fork and headtube flex less during hard efforts. It also more effectively distributes the stress put on the steering tube where it protrudes from the headtube.

 

That same wide design concept that nets less torsional flex also effectively distributes steering tube stress over a larger area. Sizing runs from small thru X-large in the color Matte Black. Enjoy!

Come to think about there are actually quite a few full suspension systems available to designers in the mtb market, which is where after a long deliberation the Wilier 901 came to be. Most everyone knows there are simple systems and very complex ones, and both of them having their set of pros and cons. All of this doesn’t make it easy for developers like Wilier for example to choose among them, unless of course your as confident as Wilier and know what you’re getting yourself into.

The idea the creative Triestina’s engineers had in mind when designing Series 9 full suspension bikes, and the 901 in particular that is shown here, was clear right off the bat.

 

 

The Wilier goal was to offer an off-road bike for trail riding which would be fun, with a good travel and a racing flavor, effective uphill, and yet still their pure Italian style. Combining these two different requirements was not easy.

After reviewing several studies along with market surveys, the 901 has found it’s own flavor in the way of FSS (floating shock suspension), which is the patented Intense Cycles, Santa Cruz VPP (virtual pivot point) based system. The first thing you notice when you look at a Series 901 MTB is the rear shock is not anchored directly to the frame at any one point, but floats between two links connecting the rear stays. This will not only give the 901 a boost in pedal and climbing power, which makes the 901 therefore highly effective when riding uphill. But for why this is even possible is due to the bike having a low bobbing level and a low pedal kick back. The perfect system for what they wanted to achieve for both the 901 and 903 rides!

 

To finish it off with the utmost efficiency both riding downhill along with high pedal yield while shredding uphill as well. No matter whether your style is in or out of the saddle. ​Also the 2015 TRN will be available to your door in the form of a carbon frame, that employs a RockShox revelation with 120MM travel.

2013 Wilier 101XN Carbon Hardtail Bikes, Slated For U.S. Sales!

Wilier 101XN carbon 29er hardtail mtb-2013


 

Wilier 101XN carbon 29er mtb internal cables-2013

Sweet– the 2013 Wilier mountain bikes will now finally have a 29 inch bike for distribution in the U.S., these will include two totally new models, the Wilier 101 XN carbon hardtail that is pictured above and below, and a light-weight road bike named the Zero9.The correct pronunciation for the Italian word Wilier, is “VIL-yer”. They have built and sold mountain bikes within their Euro market for quite a few years now, but the 101 XN will be their first complete carbon 29er mountain bike model for North America. Wilier has spent some serious design thought with this 29er frame, both technically and practically to get those concepts to come to life and actually work very well. The 101 XN design basics include total internal cable routing that will be ready for electronic shifting, the chain-stays are asymmetric, the obvious tapered head-tube, they have also made for better tire clearance by curving the seat-stay, the frame also has an option for either a direct-mount or standard style rear derailleur hanger.

 

Wilier 101XN carbon 29er hardtail mtb-2013

It is ever so common these days for carbon rides to utilize over-sized down and top-tubes, but these are impressively large. Wilier has also brought back the old-school barrel adjuster on the cable where it inserts into the down-tube. The 29er frame was designed with an 80mm front fork in mind for the geometry calculation.

They have aggressively shaped all of the carbon tubing, to make the 29er frame ultra stiff, lots of angular action going on here. These mountain bikes were obviously breed for racing!

Wilier 101XN 29ers singlespeed rear axle-2013

Although, as stated above Wilier has clearly thought it all out. Even though they designed it to be race ready it still has options for how you wish to race it. It has super-cool replaceable dropouts to utilize either the standard QR, or 12×142 thru-axle or build it out for singlespeed world championships, the choice is yours — and the championships are yours as well…

Wilier 101XN 29 mountain bikes-2013 seat tube

Near the very bottom of the Wilier seat-tube is the only spot on the entire 29er frame where the tube is the traditional round shape, to be able to utilize a front derailleur clamp. It makes for a super clean when built up as a singlespeed. The BB model is a PF92 style.

For North America, it will be sold as the frame only with a choice of a red sticker kit as well as the green shown here. We will have the Wilier setups available soon here at 29er-Cafe, so be sure to check back in soon.. The retail pricing will be $2,599 USD. Update:
They are available here in the red graphics model, go check out this sweet ride.. now discounted on sale! $1,999.00

Wilier 101XN Frame

 

  • Wilier are well known for their road bikes, the Italian company has a historic 106-years of making bikes for skinny tires, but they will be introducing their first 29er bikes to the MTB market this year.

    Wilier has been building mountain bikes for a while but they haven’t been brought to to many market areas outside of Italy. That changes with the Wilier 101 XN bikes, however. When the big wheeled concept came to be Wilier jumped on board taking all the knowledge they experienced with building high-end carbon road frames and started working on this 29er project. The 101 XN is designed around an 80mm fork with an aggressive racing geometry. The carbon frame uses most of the technology found on the high-end carbon Wilier road bikes, with the 101 XN twenty niner bikes using the same 60-ton carbon fiber as the recently release Cento 1 SR.

    The carbon frame weight is 1,260 grams for the size Large. It also includes some intuitive design features, one of those being the internal cable routing, which gives the twenty niner a clean modern aesthetic. There is a plate on the downtube that is removable to make it easier to feed the cables, and there’s a sweet cable guide below the bottom bracket. Which is a great solution to help with bike maintenance.

    Also the rear of the mountain bike has a replaceable rear hanger that is compatible with QR & Thru axles. Wilier also applied a plate inside the chainrings which they call Integrated Frame Protection and it operates as a chain device to keep your chain from coming off, to protect the spendy carbon frame. Skinny seatstays give a little bit of forgiveness on your lower back, while they used asymmetric chainstays to handle with the different loads.

    These Wilier bikes will be offered in two kits. The first featured in our photos, is built with a  Shimano XTR groupset, RockShox SID fork (which is different to the bike in these photos), Fulcrum Red Power XL wheels with Geax AKA tires, a Ritchey cockpit and seatpost, and a Selle San Marco Concor saddle. That’ll cost you £3,999.

     

    The second kit is switched with a Shimano XT groupset, FSA Afterburner crankset and RockShox Reba RL fork to bring the cost down to £2,750. It is said there is an aluminum version of the frame, the Wilier 503 that is also in the works.
