Wilier Zero 6

FRAME OVERVIEW

Zero.6 is the the peak of Wilier Triestina technology: we finally reached the goal to produce a 680 grams painted frame, keeping the handling and stiffness our products are famous for.
It is not so difficult to save 100 grams from a standard frame, but it has been almost impossible to shave that weight from a sub-800 superlight frame, known as Zero.7 . We are talking about 15% of the overall weight.

In these years we tested several types of carbon, using the existing mould of the Zero.7 . We used different kinds of carbon and different ways to “lay-up” the frame. We built and destroyed several samples. After almost two years, finally, we found the way to have a super light weight, resistance, stiffness, perfect handling, all in the same package. The main news is about the new carbon fiber used in combination with trusted 60T and S.E.I. FILM: this fiber is named DIALEAD ™ from Mitsubishi Japan. The DIALEAD™ fibers are produced from a different base called PITCH, which is generally obtained by crude oil or coal: this type of fiber features High Purity and  High and Ultra High modulus.  Using a different kind of carbon and a different lay-up is not the only secret of the brand new Zero.6. That would be too easy. The complete process had to be renewed: different temperatures and different pressure during molding. This new process adds another point to the long list that makes Zero.6 absolutely exclusive: we needed to open a new mould because we cannot use the Zero7’s mould. It doesn’t matter that the shape is 99% the same. The process needed a new platform to be able to produce such special frame.

Lighteight

It is not difficult to eliminate 100 grams from a standard frame. We have done it many times over the years. But if we have to take 100 grams off a frame that weighs less than 800 grams, the going gets tough, if not impossible. We are talking about almost 15% of the total weight. It has been possible only by exploiting two dedicated years of research, testing and road-trials. A new carbon fibre called DIALEAD™, produced by Mitsubishi Japan and blended with a new production process has finally allowed us to reach this target weight. But the biggest challenge has been to combine this lightness with the extreme manoeuvrability and exceptional handling that has made our products famous the world over. This then not only involved research into reducing the weight, but also into our production process and the finest constructional details of the frame. The Zero.6 comes with a unique matt black finishing, polished decals and silver highlighting.

INTEGRATED CABLES

Wilier Triestina’s designers know perfectly well that it is the det ails that make the difference. Little things can make a huge difference. This is why they haven’t neglected any of the details in the new integrated cable system. The plate through which the rear brake cable enters the top tube has been redesigned to permit passage of electronic wires if running an electronic group. This 2-in-1 plate is minimal, almost negligible in weight, and cleanly integrated into the frame

INTEGRATED FORK

To achieve greater riding stability and aerodynamic efficiency, Wilier Triestina’s technicians have focused their attention and research on the front end of the frame. We found that by repositioning the down tube and the top tube with respect to the head tube, the head tube’s height virtually increases. The resulting virtual increase increases torsional stiffness by 14% over the same size frame in the previous version of the Zero.7

BB386EVO

The BB386EVO system takes the construction concept of oversized central movement successfully introduced by Wilier Triestina in 2009 to new limits. We came up with an innovative way of obtaining unprecedented stiffness at a critical point in the frame, perfectly incorporating a stiff crankset into a stiff frame. The traditional BB30 was inadequate as it required a 68 mm frame in the frameset: too small for the degree of stiffness we wanted

3D DERAILLEUR HANGER

Wilier looks to every detail on our bikes to optimize performance and functionality, and our 3D Derailleur Hanger is evidence of this. Zero.7 derailleur hangers are no longer merely there to facilitate the installation of the rear derailleur. They have assumed a third dimension of functionality, seamlessly integrating different systems while simultaneously serving as cable stops.
