Wilier has a brand new carbon Filante Hybrid aero street e-bike that neatly integrates an all-new Mahle X20 motor, resetting the benchmark because the world’s lightest e-bike drive system. Combining basic Wilier Triestina’s street bike really feel & dealing with with the sleek help of the tiny Mahle X20 rear hub motor and an expandable 236Wh battery hidden within the downtube, the brand new Filante Hybrid e-bike can lengthen your street & all-road rides with out feeling like you’re weighed down on a cumbersome e-bike.
Wilier Filante Hybrid stealthy street e-bike
The brand new Wilier Filante Hybrid street e-bike doesn’t truly appear like an e-bike, doesn’t actually really feel like you’re using an e-bike, or weigh so much like most e-bikes. Even lighter than its comparable Cento10 Hybrid predecessor, this new Filante Hybrid might be constructed as much as push nearer to the 10kg/22lb weight threshold, giving it an actual shot on the title of world’s lightest e-road bike.
All-new world’s lightest Mahle X20 e-bike powertrain
A lot of the key to the brand new Filante Hybrid’s enchancment comes right down to the all-new made-in-Slovenia Mahle X20 hub motor e-bike drive system. With a whole powertrain system weight of round 3.2kg in response to Mahle, that’s nearly a ten% weight financial savings whereas nonetheless outputting the identical 250W of energy at
diminished an elevated torque output for a extra pure street using really feel, that Wilier compares to 60Nm of torque from a mid-drive motor (Mahle calls it 55Nm equal).
This new smaller-diameter X20 rear hub motor system additionally strikes to a 12mm thru-axle commonplace, wire-free no-hassle wheel mounting because of a self-aligning dropout plug, and interchangeable freehub our bodies for improved drivetrain compatibility. It nonetheless works with each a typical 236Wh inner battery and exterior 172Wh Vary Extender bottle battery (each scaled down a hair from the X35 system).
The brand new X20 system additionally will get improved backside bracket toque sensors to extra easily ramp up energy to match rider enter. And on this new Wilier, it neatly integrates the iWoc head unit controller right into a one-piece carbon cockpit, and mounts a brand new ANT+ Pulsar One biking pc out entrance to trace your rides, energy, coronary heart fee information, and talk all of the e-system energy information.
Vary on these light-weight e-road bikes varies extensively on the way you journey them. However because you’ll seemingly spend most of your time using above the EU 25km/hr cut-off, Wilier expects the X20 setup with simply the inner battery will present help for 100km rolling rides on the brand new Filante Hybrid, extending that out past 150km with the Prolonged Vary battery. In fact, rider weight, help mode, street floor & quantity of climbing elevation can have a huge impact on real-world vary.
However I’ve gotten greater than 165km/1400m out of a gravel X35 setup with 250+208Wh battery over tough terrain. So I think Wilier’s estimates are conservative for fast-paced using.
Mahle is now claiming a spread of as much as 140km on the inner battery, or 200km with the Vary Extender battery combo.
Filante Hybrid aero all-road – Tech Particulars
The Wilier Filante Hybrid is supposed to be an “electrical racing bike” so it combines a variety of aero street bike optimization from the usual Filante SLR, together with aerodynamically formed carbon tubing, wide-set fork legs & dropper seatstays, a small rear wheel cutout, one-piece built-in carbon bar+stem cockpit, fully-internal cable routing, and proprietary aero carbon seatpost with hidden clamp.
The transfer to 12mm thru-axle compatibility and an automatically-mating energy plug on the dropout makes altering tires (or flat tires) far more user-friendly vs. the earlier bolt-on, wired Mahle/eBikeMotion hub motors.
And after shifting all of the cables totally inner, integrating the straightforward color-coded Mahle mode controller into Wilier’s customized carbon cockpit makes for the nicest-looking e-bike management setup I’ve ever ridden – to not point out tremendous clean energy supply with the brand new BB torque & cadence sensor paring.
Endurance street to all-road geometry
The Filante Hybrid additionally leans a bit in the direction of all-road so it will get barely larger 32mm tire clearance for extra consolation & management. And it will get 1/2° slacker, shorter Attain & taller Stack endurance geometry in comparison with the Filante SLR (similar to the earlier Cento10 Hybrid.)
The brand new efficiency street e-bike additionally provides two extra sizes to suit a wider vary of riders, now six sizes – XS-XXL.
