Incredible dual-use race bike: both on-road and off-road.
This endurance-focused bike has proven a most competitive multi-use bike on the market. It's fast, light and responsive. Prepared with a set of carbon rims this is a bike designed to race, not just participate. The Chainsmith Team were excited to be the first to have the RAVE in Australia direct from Italy.
Don't miss out. Every RAVE comes with a complementary Pre-purchase IdMatch Bike fit (worth 450$) with your order or purchase. That means you can ride the simulator smart bike in our bike fitting lab, before the bike itself.
Why makes the RAVE an equally incredible ride on-road as well as off? Aside from the excellent manufacturing, the geometry is simply what sets this bike apart. Bikes ridden in the pro peloton are known for their unrealistic expectation that a rider be flexible, and sustain a more competitive aero position on the bike. But in reality, we are not highly trained athletes spending hours a week in strength and conditioning. Most of us enjoy a few rides a week, and then sit for hours at computers. The RAVE comes into its own because its a frame that performs at highest level, while allowing you a position that provides hours of comfortable riding.
Our Wilier collection includes ready to ride complete bicycles, or you can choose to custom-build or custom-colour. Please contact us with any enquiries.
WILIER RAVE SLR
EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED
Travelling new roads is not just an attitude. It can also become the target for Wilier who has been making bicycles for over 116 years. With Rave SLR Wilier have set their sights on new horizons, creating a product with two separate souls, perfect for all-road, perfect for gravel, but the same incredible racing inclination.
Chainsmith has a selection of Wilier Triestina in store, some are on expected arrival and others are ready for you to order. We do not advertise bikes that are unavailable. We can order direct from Italy. Our knowing the family and staff at the Italian headoffice gives you the advantage of up-to-date information on new product, ETO and guaranteed ability to order ahead of any other Australian retailer.
ROAD OR GRAVEL SETUP
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 light frame, we used the same carbon technology mix found in the Filante SLR and the Wilier 0 SLR, just to give an idea.
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 on 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.
