Wilier Triestina has released the Rave SLR, an all-new gravel race bike that will sit at the top of its gravel portfolio alongside the existing Jena, while also occupying the brand's endurance all-road segment. 

Designed with performance as the priority, Wilier claims it has created a bike that is both light and responsive, with 'racing geometries'. To that end, it borrows the same carbon fibre formulation used in the brand's top-tier road race bikes, the Filante SLR and Zero SLR, which has then been mixed with what the brand calls "special viscoelastic fibres such as Liquid Crystal Polymers," said to create a reactive frame with good ride quality.
