New Campagnolo Levante wheelset targets gravel racing and bikepacking

It’s a big ask to design a wheelset for both the startline and multi-day tours – but Campagnolo has given it a go.

Campagnolo has just released its first dedicated gravel wheelset, the Levante. The wheels come with bold claims of racing performance, intermixed with considered thought about the durability and serviceability – the wheels also promise to be dependable enough for long bikepacking trips. 

Now, it wouldn’t be a release from Campagnolo without at least a partial view to the aesthetics. The laser-etched graphics with a mirror-like C-LUX finish certainly don’t disappoint, but more on those later.

After winning the 2019 National Single-Speed Cross-Country Mountain Biking Championships and claiming the plushie unicorn (true story), Stefan swapped the flat-bars for drop-bars and has never looked back. 

Since then, he’s earnt his 2ⁿᵈ cat racing licence in his first season racing as a third, completed the South Downs Double in under 20 hours and Everested in under 12.

But his favourite rides are multiday bikepacking trips, with all the huge amount of cycling tech and long days spent exploring new roads and trails - as well as histories and cultures. Most recently, he’s spent two weeks riding from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia
