Wilier Cento1 Gold Edition
"Wilier Triestina will take part in the “Big Boy Toys”, the fair of luxury that will be held in Abu Dhabi from the 16th to the 19th of March, 2011. In the exhibition that claims to offer “the best of the best”, the Italian firm will show a super-bicycle: Cento1 SL Gold Edition. It’s an exclusive version of the brand’s flagship, Cento1, the model used by the athletes of Team Lampre Isd.
Every external detail of this bicycle has been reformulated. White, black and gold are the colors of the carbon monocoque frameset. The halberd on the front and the inscriptions “Cento1” and “SL Gold Edition” are made with pure gold. A golden color also appears on the carbon wheels Fulcrum Racing Speed XLR. The handlebar Plasma FSA is covered with a leather ribbon. The saddle chosen for this fancy Wilier is the Preziosa by Selle Italia. The group is a Campagnolo Super Record.
The Cento1 SL Gold Edition costs $15,000.
Granturismo, Imperiale, Cento1 CX are other models that Wilier Triestina will present in Abu Dhabi.
