Campagnolo Levante

Campagnolo Levante

For those of us lucky enough to have visited the Campagnolo factory in Vicenza and tasted the lunch offerings in their staff cafeteria (and utilized their many espresso machines in the office), the Campagnolo family name is synonymous with decades of quality craftsmanship and WorldTour victories. The Levante however, is made for gravel. Designed to complement the Campagnolo 13-speed Ekar gravel groupset, the Levante features a slew of aesthetic features to complement their engineering prowess and offers the two-way fit rim profile to ensure tubeless and clincher compatibility and a 25mm internal rim width to accommodate tire widths from 38mm to 78mm.
