Official Bike Supplier
Wilier was born in 1906 thanks to the brilliant idea of a trader from Bassano, Pietro Dal Molin, of building bicycles on his own account. His forge or "Steel horses" rose as a small workshop along the banks of the river Brenta, at Bassano del Grappa, and it became more and more successful by keeping up with the increasing demand for bicycles.
After victories in prestigious races such as the Giro or the Tour de France, the ultimate glory was in September 2008, when Ballan won the World Road Championship in Varese on Wilier, just ahead of his illustrious teammate Cunego. Full history
Those who own a Wilier Triestina know that they didn't choose just any bike. They know that the symbol of the halberd is part of the history of cycling, and a history more than a century old.
The RTW002, coming in a bespoke Race the World livery (picture not representative), is designed to cope with the varied roads and terrain the race will cover. These carbon frames have all the attributes of a road bike but have altered geometry for more precise handling and are built to withstand rough conditions while still being fast and comfortable.
The specification we have chosen for the bike is aimed at providing the highest level of performance, balancing this with durability over long distance and ease of maintenance while on the road in remote locations.
Disk brakes are an exciting addition to bikes and Race the World will be embracing this new technology to ensure participants have full control in all conditions.
