Wilier GTR Team Ultegra Complete Road Bike 2016

Wilier's GTR Team Ultegra Complete Road Bike is an indication that the GrandTurismo philosophy underwriting the various manifestations of its GT line over the years is still getting the RD attention that first inspired us at the start of the industry's endurance revolution. It's got a layup that's equal parts race and recreation, a Shimano drivetrain that's almost entirely composed of the latest Ultegra kit, and one of the high contrast, matte finish paint schemes that are becoming as popular across the industry as the frame's all purpose endurance geometry.

The GTR geometry manages to feel at home in everything from circuit races to hill climbs to coffee shop loops.

That means they crafty Italians required a bit more material to hit the strength and stiffness numbers they were after, so the Team model's frame weighs a claimed 200g more than the SL's frame. Of course, the industry axiom of choosing two of weight, strength, or price holds true, and the Team is c...
