Here’s the Wilier Zero SLR that Total Direct Energie will be riding at the Tour de France

Full spec info for the team’s new lightweight Wilier bike

The Wilier Zero SLR was launched last week. It’s a disc brake bike but, in the spec ridden by Total Direct Energie tips the scales at around or lower than the UCI’s 6.8kg weight limit, so the team may need to ballast its bikes to comply with the UCI regs.

Wilier quotes a weight for the Zero SLR frame of 780g, with another 345g for the fork. They are made of a new carbon fibre formulation which uses liquid crystal in the resin matrix, that Wilier says increases strength and vibration damping.
