Both Rave SLR colours can be outfitted with top-end road accessories (new Shimano Dura Ace Di2, new Shimano Ultegra Di2, Sram Force AXS) or high range gravel accessories (Campagnolo Ekar, Shimano GRX or the new Sram Force AXS XPLR) with road or gravel tyres up to 42mm.
To create a reactive frame, we've channelled all the experience gained in the use of technopolymers, mixing carbon with special viscoelastic fibres such as Liquid Crystal Polymers. Construction technologies borrowed from those used for the Filante SLR and the Wilier 0 SLR, products that offer an excellent riding quality recognised by the most demanding professional riders.
Performance has always been our fixation. And the genesis of the Rave SLR is no different. If we translate performance into concrete aspects, it's about a frame that is light, responsive (stiff where necessary) and features racing geometries.
BALANCED RACING GEOMETRIES
To create a frame with balanced racing geometries, we started with top range road racing references and mixed them with frame parts of endurance and gravel origin: all without distorting the performance target that we set for ourselves at the start of the design phase. A slightly higher stack and a somewhat shorter reach compared to a pure competition bike, combined with the available carbon monocoque handlebars, become the perfect synthesis between high performance and comfort.
HANDLEBAR AND INTEGRATED CABLES
In addition to being lightweight, the 0-Bar and J-Bar monocoque handlebars available in the Rave SLR, house the brake and controls cables, routing them inside the frame. The handlebar and stem combo features an essential design, with sinuous and rounded lines to guarantee the best possible ergonomic grip and provide the Rave SLR with the elegance of Wilier Triestina's high-end products.
The spacers between the frame head tube and the handlebar are made of a high-rigidity composite material, with a special cavity for routing the cables. They consist of two parts for quick assembly and disassembly, without interfering with the cables that run from the handlebar to the frame.
