Italian styling is again evident in the GTR.
The Gran Turismo is probably the most favoured frameset of all. This all-rounder is elegantly finished as only Wilier Triestina know how. The carbon monocoque frame and fork with internal cable routing is a real head turner. This bike performs as well as it looks with features to help take out road vibrations without losing power. As comfortable as it is stiff, the fork design ensures this bike handles equally as well when out of the saddle on those challenging climbs.
Fitted with quality Tiagra components and Shimano wheelset the price of this bike is kept under the £1,000 price mark and ensures you get a high-end, road bike without breaking the bank. This level of design, style and technical know-how very seldom comes at such a good price - suitable for your next bike to work? Why not treat yourself to a piece of Italian racing heritage and consider our offer of 18 months 0% finance.
Wilier Triestina – Racing Heritage with Italian flair!
Wilier can trace their history back to 1906 when Pietro Dal Molin started making bikes from his small workshop in Northern Italy. Demand was high and success assured.After the first-world-war, Mario Dal Molin took over the family business and started developing the bike using nickel-plating.
In the following years a professional team was created led by a young cyclist from the town of Trieste. This link led to the birth of the Wilier Triestina brand, made distinctive by their copper red colour.
Throughout the 1940’s and 50’s the Wilier team had numerous successes in national races leading to wins in the first Tour of Italy, Tour of Flanders and the Tour de France.
In 1969 the Wiiler Triestina brand was purchased by the Gastaldello brothers. Over the succeeding years they have continued to build and supply their bikes to many professional racing teams. These teams compete in many major events including the Giro d’Italia and The Tour de France. This involvement in top level professional racing has led to the development of high performance road racing and time trial bikes. Since 2008 Wilier have seen their growth double in revenue and bike production. They continue to hold a strong presence in the international market. J E James Cycles are proud to be one of the UK’s top retailers for the Wilier Triestina brand.
INNOVATIVE IN ITS ESSENCE
All of the GranTurismo experience flows in its soul. Other than for the most extreme racers, this is the single most beloved frameset of all. In its second life, GTR inherits Granturismo's carbon fiber composite and acquires a renewed tapered head tube. Internal cable routing has been revolutionized making assembling the frame easier.
Thanks to the Smooth Rear Design system, it continues to boast the same comfort where vertical vibrations are dampened without dissipating muscle power. Torsional stiffness and stability continue to be assured by the Razor Edge Design: the profiles that branch out from the seat tube and bottom bracket join near the headset. The edging that runs along the full extent of the fork makes the front end remarkably stable and receptive when pedalling out of the saddle.
Its new elegant finishes are the result of Wilier Triestina's research and care for technical and aesthetic details.
