Fast and smooth.

Wilier puts it, "The spirit of the Gran Turismo is embodied in the soul of the GTS." What the Italian frame manufacturer really means is that its new GTS was developed for riders who want that lively race feel in their road machines, but without the aggressive race fit. To achieve this, Wilier expertly applied the Gran Turismo's carbon fiber composite to a platform that features a slightly slackened geometry throughout. The result is a series of new sizes that deliver Wilier's signature race-tuned handling, while fitting better than ever.

What sets The GTS apart aesthetically is its Razor Edge Design in front and the Smooth Rear design in back. In contrast to the more rounded tube shapes of the Cento1 and Izoard, Wilier designers took full advantage of the freedom afforded by its monocoque molding process to give the GTS lines that sing praise to Italian style while maintaining a Cento1 level of handling precision. To this end, the top and down tubes bear the most aggressive shaping to create a stable, confidence-inspiring ride. The head tube junction received a great portion of the attention, and the top and down tubes converge here in a unified mass of carbon fiber for unparalleled torsional stiffness. Look behind the seat tube and you'll notice skinny seatstays. These give the bike more vertical compliance in back when riding over rough roads — they're not only skinny, but shaped to maximize comfort. The upper end is almost triangular and morphs over the length of the stays to be nearly flat by the dropouts.

Wilier uses a full monocoque process for the fork as well. This way, it ensures that fibers run continuously from the fork ends to the top of the steerer, which, when combined with the massive front end, result in incredible lateral stiffness and impressive overall strength. They also manage to fit in some vertical compliance by designing the rake to start at the crown and taper to the trailing edge.

Hidden from view underneath its detailed paint, the GTS relies on carbon fiber sourced from two of Wilier's most trusted suppliers: Toray and Mitsubishi. The performance goals for the frame are met with a careful layup schedule consisting of Toray's T-700SC and Mitsubishi's MR 60H and HS40 unidirectional fibers. This blend of high and medium modulus fibers is what gives their engineers the ability to fine tune the ride for maximum feel and comfort, and at the same time, make this bike more affordable than their top-of-the-range Cento1 series.

The GTS also benefits from asymmetrical chainstays in the rear end. Since the drivetrain applies different forces to the left and right sides of the frame, the shape and layup of the tubes in the rear triangle have been optimized to neutralize the torsional effect from pedaling, and to maximize comfort at the same time.

For the build of the GTS, Wilier spec'd the bike with Shimano's Ultegra 6800 11-speeed drivetrain, complete with an FSA MegaExo bottom bracket and Gossamer crankset. The cockpit received an FSA RD-320S handlebar and its OS-190 LX stem, with an FSA SL-282 post supporting Selle Italia's X1 Custom Wilier saddle. In the wheel department, Wilier wrapped Shimano's reliable RS21 hoops with Vittoria Zaffiro clincher tires.

Very Pleased!!

    This was the first time I ordered a bike online and the first time I ordered through Competitive Cyclist. I was a little concerned on how abused the bike was going to get while being shipped cross country by UPS, but honestly my fears were unfounded. The box came fairly unscathed, minus a gash in the one side. When I opened the box to check the bike I was extremely pleased as to how well this bike was packed! I was like a kid on Christmas unpacking my new bike. The Wilier is a beauty! Now, I can't say much for the ride at this point since I am still dealing with 3ft of snow on the ground, but I am hoping for an early spring so I can put this bike through its' paces. As far as ordering another bike from Competitive Cyclist again, I would without hesitation.
    Once the snow clears the roads and I am able to ride this beauty I will update the review. Thanks for listening.

    Unanswered Question

    Hello,
    Can I buy this bike with a carbon wheel upgrade?
    Thanks

    Can you add Di2 to this bike?

    Yes, you should be able to. The E-Tube cable running up to the front derailleur would need to be relatively long and probably zip-tied once around the seat tube.

    great value on an Italian classic!

      This is one of the best all-around performing bikes we offer. A 1,050-gram monocoque frame with asymmetric chainstays aids in power transfer, while a semi-integrated seat mast and formed, angular tube profiles provide lateral stiffness. The bike's ProTour geometry tilts the GTS more toward the racy end of the performance/comfort spectrum, and with a carbon fork the bike is perfectly capable of serving up equal heaping of speed and distance for riders willing to give as much as they get.The bike is super comfortable for long rides and excels in areas where the roads are rough and coarse. I just recently sent one to my Sister in Kauai and she was in awe of the buttery smoothness and performance on the sketchy roads in Hawaii.if you have the means i highly recommend picking one up.

      These come with compact cranks and 11/25 cassettes but we can swap it if need be.

      Would this be a good all around bike ( road and triathlon)? I am planning on racing for an Ironman distance next year but not sure if I will be doing more after that. I have a budget for only 1 bike, unfortunately.

      Yes, it would be a great bike to do everything! It will be super comfortable for the long distance training you are doing, but will still perform as a race bike should. You could also add clip on aero bars if you wanted. Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions you may have.

      I'm 5'6", with a 30" inseam, which would fit better, small or medium?

      i would put you in a small but it really depends. Feel free to call me direct and I will get a few more details from you to determine the correct size.

      Excelelnt bike and customer service

        It's my first time buying a bike online and I could not get a hold of one local to check out let alone ride it. I based my decision on reviews online and a great help from Shae - customer service/advisor. Shae was kind and patient enough to answer all my questions even the details of the bike as far as sizing goes knowing different brands have different sizes and geometry. That was the scary part getting the bike that does not fit and having to return and exchange. As for the bike itself, the fit and finish of this bike is amazing and it handles great and loves to climb as what it claims to be. I am very happy with my purchase and will buy at again from Competitive Cyclist. Thanks again Shae!

        Thanks Alvin, I'm happy I was able to help out. :)

        Hi, I'm a 5'3" male and my inseam is 28". Would size S fit me?

        yes, it would fit but we would need to swap the stem out for a little shorter one. Feel free to contact me direct at 801-736-6396 x 4074 or wbranham@backcountry.com.

        Could you please tell me what the spread on the rear cassette is,11x? And what size chain rings ,probably 50x34 maybe.and what size for a 33.5 inseam thank you

        Best Answer

        It's an 11-28 per Wilier and according to two reviews of the bike in magazines a 50/34 crankset. As for sizing, I would use the fit calculator, inseam doesn't matter a whole lot in sizing a bike (you can always raise the seat). The biggest factor is ETT (Effective Top Tube) or the reach distance between your seat and the handlebars.

        With the stock rims, what is the largest tire this frame will take? Wondering if I could run Vittoria CG 25 and 27 tires.

        no but I have the same question ! If that's any help?

        Although I have swapped the stock rims for Mavic Krysium Elite (2015 model), I put 28mm Continental tires on and there is plenty of space. I don't see there being a problem with putting 25 or 27mm tires on the stock rims

          I'm going to give you a call anyway, but I figured I'd ask here since it's late. My son is about 5' even and has outgrown his 44cm Bianchi. I'm looking at a 50cm frame since he's growing quickly. This one looks pretty solid overall and matches his teams colors too. Can it be configured with juniors gearing (46/34) up front? Also, if we don't need wheels, can it be configured without? Thanks!

          Which is the most famous bi-cycle?

          One Sweet Ride!

          This is one of the smoothest riding bike I have ever owned. I added Reynolds Strike wheel set, Ritchey Carbon C-260 stem, Carbon Curve handle bars, Ritchey WCS Carbon link seatpost, and 6800 brakes, 6800 53/39 Crankset. There are no clearance issues with this 25mm wide wheelset on either the chain stays or seat stays. I still have the stock tires on the bike.

          what an awesome bike!

          • Gender:Male
          • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

          I have been doing my research for a month to find a replacement for my BMC SL 01 Racer and I stumbled upon this bike. I was comparing this from the Ridley Noah RS and decided to go with this. It has a very neat look. The cables are tucked in the frame. I absolutely love the color scheme on the bike. It has an all Italian characters to it. I have upgraded the wheel set though to the Reynolds assault clincher and shaved off 750 grams with the published weight of 8850 grams. You will absolutely love this bike! Safe riding everyone!

          what an awesome bike!

          i'm 5'6" 29 inch inseam. would a small fit me?

          Best Answer

          Angel,



          The Small should fit you very well, the standover on that back will work and it should fit you comfortably.



          If you have any other questions please feel free to contact me at ececala@backcountry.com



          Thanks,

          Enrico

          Rico,

          I am 5'9" 30 inch inseam. Any thoughts on size?

          Thanks,

          Frederik

          Can the Wilier GTS accommodate a wide-rim...

          Can the Wilier GTS accommodate a wide-rim (25mm) wheelset like the HED Ardennes + ? Also, what is the standover height for the bike in size small? Thanks!

          The 25mm will be pushing it to the limit especially with a bigger tire you are going to be running into rubbing issues that will ultimately not work out for you in the long run.



          To answer the Standover question you are looking at roughly 70cm.



          I hope this answers your questions and if you still have questions please feel free to contact me at ececala@backcountry.com.



          Thnaks,

          Enrico

          competitive cyclist cancelled my order

            I ordered this bike on the 7th of June, and after waiting 6 weeks for the bike, competitive cyclist decided to cancel my order without prior notice. You might need some explanation on why was the order cancelled, but none was given.

            I would be glad to look into that for you. Im sure there is a good explaination for this happening as we do not randomly cancel orders for people.

            Please give me a call at 801-736-6396 x 4074
