Happy coronation day.

The previous iteration of the Wilier Zero.7 Road Frameset was crowned king of the superbikes by reviewers and press alike, and the 2017Zero.7 Frameset is already topping short lists of aspiring heirs to the throne. The new Zero.7 introduces a few more advancements without conceding the elements of ride quality that initially brought the crown into its family line. After all, what kind of a king makes concessions?

Wilier's engineers began with the synthetic equivalent of Superman's hair: high modulus, 60 ton carbon fiber. It's very stiff, very efficient, and very light, but it also doesn't absorb as much road vibration and is more prone to failure than a lower-modulus carbon. Top-end manufacturers often address this by using different carbon moduli across the body of one frame based on the stiffness and strength requirements of each discreet area, but the inclusion of lower modulus carbon makes the frame heavier and more flexible. Wilier puts its own spin on this process, so the new Zero.7 includes less lower-modulus carbon and alleviates the negative side effects of its inclusion, reducing the overall volume of material by 19% compared to the previous model.

This process begins with the incorporation of Zinc Oxide nanoparticle epoxy resin (ZnO) into Wilier's high-modulus layups to improve impact resistance. It continues with a technique called LIT (Large Inflatable Tube). As the name implies, LIT involves inflating a tube-like bladder inside the frame while it's in the carbon mold. This compacts the material from both sides and creates a uniform wall thickness that eliminates structurally compromising resin deposits. Both bits of tech underwrite the Cento1 family's heritage, and the Zero.7 receives the same treatment; however, Wilier was looking for even more to set the Zero.7 apart. It found it by incorporating a solution from the aeronautical and automotive industries, Special Elastic Infiltrated Film, or SEI.

SEI is a viscoelastic film that, when injected between layers of carbon, relieves the harshness and brittle nature of high-modulus fiber through increased vibration absorption and impact resistance. To illustrate the importance of the addition of SEI, we'll relate the Zero.7 to a more traditional Italian icon: the margherita pizza. If 60 ton carbon is San Marzano tomatoes, then SEI is buffalo mozzarella. The tomatoes are definitely a required presence for any margherita pizza, but the right tomatoes combined with the right cheese nets the best possible outcome in all areas.

Another change from the previous Zero.7 that's immediately obvious is the redesigned head tube, whose silhouette describes an hourglass shape. This nets two benefits, aerodynamic gains and increased front-end stiffness. The aerodynamic improvements are nice — we're certainly not going to complain about fewer lost watts — but the improved stiffness is really amazing.

The Integrated Fork design that informs the legend of Wilier's front ends returns in this new iteration. Combined with the Zero.7's tight wheel base geometry, the front end gives a more seamless, unified feel between frame and fork. Since there are no objective metrics to describe it, communicating the quality of a bike's ride can often degenerate into an exercise in lyrical hyperbole. So please humor us when we claim that, on descents, the Zero.7 is a demon in three-piece tweed: well-mannered but aggressively fearless.

The Zero.7 is also built up in the bottom bracket area in order to increase power transfer and accommodate the new BB386 Evo. While it's true that the options for external bearing cups runneth over, there is still significant room for advancement in the right circumstances. Wilier's collaboration with venerable component manufacturer FSA proves that point. The BB386 Evo is a kingly 86.5 millimeters wide, increasing stiffness by 30% over the usual 68 millimeter bottom brackets and lowering the power lost from flexing to almost zero. With adapters, the BB386 Evo accommodates cranksets from Shimano, SRAM, and Campagnolo. The Zero.7 Frameset is finished off with a 27.2 millimeter Ritchey Superlogic seatpost. Please note that this frame is not compatible with Campagnolo EPS groupsets.

Fast and Smooth!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Italians make great bikes, pure and simple. I had the chance to ride the Zero7 for 60 miles or so with a variety of sleep climbs, fast downhills and a big sprint. The Zero7 is solid. The front end tracked very well on the descents and the bottom bracket was super stiff on climbs and sprints.



The ride is snappy but very smooth, never harsh. The bike is light!



The paint job is flawless. I love naked carbon and this one does not disappoint.



The differences are subtle in frames at this price point. What makes the Zero7 stand out is its all around fit and finish and its balance of stiffness and ride quality. If you want to go Italian, the Zero7 is an excellent way to go!

Fast and Smooth!

What a machine!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been riding the Zero.7 now for 2 months (1200+ miles). This bike replaced a Pinarello Dogma FPX that I'd ridden many miles on. I loved my Pinarello, but figured it was time to move onto newer technology. Ben at Competitive was a great resource in making the move as I had a ton of questions regarding the new stuff. Initially I was thinking of moving to a Pinarello F8 but after some discussion with Ben, he felt that the Zero.7 would be a good fit. It was not just a good fit - it was a perfect fit!

The bike shows exemplary behavior in all situations. Descending on nasty tarmac is effortless. The front end soaks up uneven road surfaces and gives a confidence that is unparalleled. You can push this bike and it will still give you more. Climbing is a dream with this machine. It feels like all power put to the pedals is immediately transformed into forward motion. Standing on the pedals you feel the bike moving forward and nary a touch of bottom bracket flex. Nothing is wasted in getting you from point A to point B. In fact, my Strava times and PR's keep improving with every ride. This bike just makes you want to get better and better. After a long day at work, I can't wait to get out on the road with this machine. Long rides are extremely comfortable and you don't feel like you got beat up. I cannot say that about the Pinarello.

We set the bike up with Shimano DuraAce Di2. It works flawlessly. I was able to change the shift patterns myself via the included charger/USB Interface and the eProject software. Wheels are Enve 25 Classic. Cockpit is 3T Ergonova bars and ARX LTD Stem. Pedals are Garmin Vectors. Total weight is 14.65 lbs. (Medium Frame).

I've been totally stoked about this purchase and it has revitalized my love of cycling. A day off the bike is not a good day and this bike is a big part of that reasoning. Thanks much to Ben at Competitive for making the suggestion regarding this machine. The after sale support was also great. I had a creak in the bottom bracket that I had to get fixed at a local dealer. Ben immediately credited that amount to my account. Now, that's service!

If you're looking for a high end machine. Take a good look at the Zero.7 and buy it from Competitive. Great experiences all around.

Great review - add a picture of that machine and it will be perfect!

At the bottom of the description it says that this frame won't work with a Campy EPS groupo? Why is that? And the last bullet point says "Compatible with Shimano and Campagnolo MECHANICAL drivetrains". What is the deal? It won't work with any electronic groupsets?

I've heard the reason the Zero 7 isn't compatible with EPS is that the first batch of frames that were shipped to the US don't have enough cable clearance in the chainstay for the thicker EPS cables. I understand that Wilier has redesigned the chainstay to remedy the issue but many companies selling the frames in the US want to clear out their existing stock first which sadly means no EPS for now.

What is the clearance tire ?

I'm running a 28 on the rear, front has a 25. Make sure you have some brakes with enough clearance. Had to switch out Ciamillo Zero Gravity for Super Record skeleton brakes since the Ciamillo's wouldn't go wide enough.

A super bike that exceeds expectations

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been riding Wilier frames for about two and half years so I have some experience with the brand. My previous bike was a Zero 9 built up with Chorus 11 (a really solid bike!) so that's my reference point for making comparisons to the Zero 7.

I ordered my Zero 7 with the new 2015 Super Record 11 group and a full 3T cockpit with an ARX II stem and Ergonova handlebars. I already had a set of wheels I was happy with (Enve 3.4s) and this wasn't a problem because Competitive Cyclist was happy to provide me a build with no wheels. Now that I've had the bike for a few weeks I've had the chance to put it through the wringer. I've been so impressed that I couldn't help but come back here to provide a review.

Flawless. That is the single word that keeps coming to mind every time I take my Zero 7 out for a ride. This bike seems capable of anything. Want to win a local road race? In the mood to steal some short sprint Strava KOMs? Are you ready to PR your local climb? Just want to spend all day climbing in the mountains? The Zero 7 will handle all of this and still leave you feeling that you've not tapped its full potential. Its stability is inspiring and its acceleration is sensational.

The frame is light, stiff, and all-day comfortable. This is an incredible achievement for such an aggressive racing machine. If you enjoy climbing, especially out of the saddle, you will quickly fall in love with how this bike excels on the steepest pitches you can find.

Overall what really impresses me about the Zero 7 is that it simply does not make any compromises. Somehow Wilier has been able to craft a frame that hits the perfect balance of weight, stiffness, comfort, and handling.

If you are serious about buying a frame at this price point (and there are many options) I can say confidently that the Zero 7 will not disappoint!
