Wilier Triestina GTR Gran Turisimo, Full Carbon, Shimano 105, 22 Speed




Wilier has a knack for getting the appearance of its bikes just right. The manufacturer may not have the presence of rival Italians Pinarello, Colnago, or Bianchi, but we can’t deny just how good the machines look.

With its black and hi-vis yellow paint scheme, the GTR oozes pure superbike from the first glance and, without looking over its component parts, we’d have guessed the Gran Turisimo would be significantly more expensive than its relatively modest price tag suggests.

The GTR is very much in keeping with what you’d expect of a sportif bike from an Italian brand. When designing a bike intended for the endurance rider, and the GTR is no different. In fact its shape is very much classic ProTour, with the wheelbase being just a few mm longer and the head tube barely 10mm taller. The length of top tube and reach are consistent and those frame angles haven’t been relaxed.
