As of 2019, Zero.7 is the lightest bicycle Wilier Triestina has ever made, and the revolution it leads has a specific goal: setting the new design standard for ultra-light racing bikes . The frame weighs under 800 grams, but the technology applied to it differs from those normally used in this type of bicycle. The team of engineers in Rossano Veneto applied technologies to the Zero.7 that were developed for the Cento1SR and Cento1 AIR: cable integration, integrated fork, and better aerodynamic efficiency to name only a few. Zero.7 is therefore the natural evolution of the Zero.7 platform as we have known and ridden it thus f ar. The most noticeable apsect of the new frame is the shape, featuring less volume than the previous version of the Zero.7. New construction techniques have allowed us to reduce the volume of the frame tubes by 19%. However, the smaller diameter tubes have not reduced lateral stiffness or the safety of the frame. Quite the contrary. In the process of producing the Zero.7 monocoque frame, we use an internal liner made of a special thermoplastic material, into which the bladder is inserted. This internal liner helps to create a uniform and equal pressure along the inner carbon walls of the frame. With this process, we achieve total control over the thickness and smoothness of the frame walls. Thus the pressure exerted on the inside of the frame from the bladder is distributed equally over all points on the frame. This construction technique allows us to give the frame considerable stiffness at the most critical points without adding carbon to these parts, keeping the frame ultra-light.
