BEST FOR: Racing connoisseurs. THE TEST: It’s the supermodel of bikes, lithe yet curvy, and it draws longing gazes everywhere it goes. But the defining characteristic is one you can’t see. Embedded in the layers of carbon is an elastic film that Wilier says adds impact resistance and damping. We’re not sure about that first claim, but the bike definitely offers a muted ride that sets it apart from the brassy harshness of many superbikes. “It’s a race bike you could ride all day,” said one tester. Others gushed over the precision of Campagnolo’s Super Record shifting and the airy Fulcrum Racing Zero wheels on our test bike. Our only niggle: the riot of logos and symbols on the bike’s frame detract from the otherwise clean aesthetic. THE VERDICT: Boom shakalaka! 14.4 lbs
