Wilier Filante SLR review

The Wilier Filante SLR blends lightweight and aerodynamics beautifully, but can its ride quality match its devilishly good looks?

Cycling Weekly Verdict

The gorgeous Wilier Filante SLR turned heads every time it left my house, and on looks alone it's a thrill to ride. The bike blends the aerodynamic characteristics required of every top end bike with lightweight with style. With capacity of wide tyres and a superbly comfortable ride quality, the Filante SLR is a race bike you'll want to ride all day.

Described as a lightweight road bike with the characteristics of an aero bike, the gorgeous Wilier Filante SLR was certainly on trend when it launched in the autumn of last year. It wasn't the first GC bike we'd seen tackle this longstanding divide and we're sure it won't be the last.

The Filante SLR replaces the Cento10 Pro model, the brand's previous out-and-out aero bike and sits alongside the Zero,  Wilier's climbing bike.
