How to pronounce Wilier

The pronunciation of “Wilier” is a common source of confusion for many people. The brand’s name is Italian. The correct pronunciation is “vee-lee-air,” with emphasis on the second syllable.

Not just any bicycle brand

Wilier began in Bassano del Grappa, a small town in the Veneto region of Italy, by Pietro Dal Molin. The company’s name is an acronym for “W l’Italia liberata e redenta”. The phrase translates to “Long live Italy, liberated and redeemed.” Triestina comes from the name of the city of Trieste. During Wilier’s founding, Trieste was not part of Italy. The name ‘Wilier Triestina’ reflected a patriotic desire for the city to merge.

During the early years, Wilier produced a range of bicycles from touring to city bikes. It was during the 1920s and 1930s that Wilier became known for its racing bikes. In the post-World War II era, Wilier continued to focus on racing bikes and produced some of the most innovative and advanced models of the time. In the 1950s, the company introduced the “Superleggera” (meaning “superlight” in Italian) frame, made of lightweight steel tubing and designed to reduce weight while maintaining strength.

Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, Wilier continued to innovate and produce high-quality racing bikes. Wilier’s bikes won many races and titles. In the 1980s, the company expanded its product range to include mountain bikes and began to explore new materials such as aluminum and carbon fiber.

Wilier’s road racing pedigree

When Wilier began to produce racing bikes, it attracted the attention of professional cyclists. Fiorenzo Magni, a well-known Italian cyclist, won the Tour of Flanders in 1949 and 1950 while using Wilier bicycles. Another Italian cycling legend Marco Pantani competed in the 1997 Tour de France on a Wilier. More recently, 2008 World Champion Alessandro Ballan and runner-up Damiano Cunego won the 2008 UCI Road World Championships on Wilier bicycles. Wilier has been providing bicycles to Direct Énergie of the UCI Pro Continental since the 2018 season, and starting in 2020, Astana Pro Team.

Today, Wilier is based in Rossano Veneto, Italy. Wilier continues to produce a range of high-quality bicycles, including road, mountain, and e-bikes.
