2012 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Bikes Part Two

Wilier TwinFoil $13,999

The TwinFoil has the style and panache that you would expect from a top-level Italian brand, topped with unique technology. It boasts fully integrated hidden brake calipers, but the truly unique aspect of this bike is the front fork. The TwinFoil fork integrates with the stem and handlebar and juts far to both sides of the head tube. This unique strutted design enhances the bike’s handling by stiffening the front end laterally. The solid road feel and stiff bottom bracket will make this a favorite of advanced triathletes. The frame’s geometry is for a true triathlon position, but the integrated aerobar system limits adjustability slightly. Wilier-usa.com
