“Jena is a light, reactive, and easy-to-handle bike with racing-comfort geometries, and able to adapt to the multiple uses required of a gravel bike.”

Racing Comfort Geometries

“Jena’s 60TON monocoque carbon frame comes in 5 sizes (from XS to XL) with geometries that allow a high level of comfort, without sacrificing reactivity and performance, which is very close to one of Wilier’s racing bikes.”

“The head tube, with a more open angle, ensures riding quality and stability also on the most difficult tracks.”

“On the other hand, the rear triangle was designed to have a more distinct response to vertical stress, absorbing thus great part of the vibrations generated by the ground imperfections.”

Usability

“There are no limits on Jena usability and to the available configurations. The span between frame / fork and wheels allows you to install generous tyres on 700c / 28″ wheels or MTB wheels with a 650B diameter.”

“With 28″ wheels you can install tyres up to 44 mm wide, whereas, in the case of 650B MTB wheels, you can even install 48 mm wide tyres, which is equivalent to 1.95″ (tested on Vittoria tyre).”

“There are numerous available supports that allow the installation of bottle holders, bags, carriers or mudguards. On the front fork, for example, you can install two bottle holders or one lowrider carrier for bags.”

Kamm Tail Design

“Even if the aerodynamics on gravel have less importance, an aerodynamic oblique tube was developed for Jena. This gives the classic truncated tail shape of Wilier’s aerodynamic frames.”

Removable Derailleur Support

“The derailleur support can be removed in case of single ring /1x groupset, a transmission widely used by gravel enthusiasts. The rider can choose a double or single crankset, without compromising the look of the bike.”

    1. It seems wrong but Mavic says that is the right way to install the front tire. Take a look on Mavic website, Allroad Disc model.

      1. hmm all the pictures show it as such, but I can’t find it explained.

        The only advantage I see the V being ran backwards, is for grip on braking.

        Does the front tire tread being flipped also assist on front tire wash outs?

  1. Please don’t be offended by this statement…..
    After many years of observing and being influenced by the obsessive nature of cycling, particularly road racing and the commitment it demands AND also working in the Disability industry with clients with Asperger’s, I have come to the conclusion, (only my personal opinion), that there must be a high percentage of Autism in the some sections of the cycling community.
    The signs are there if you look closely, however is this a bad thing? Not necessarily, apart from the sometimes obsessiveness and antisocial behavior, it can have it’s pluses. I once worked with a student with Asperger’s who obsessed about my MTB that I rode to work on. Luckily for me, his keen eye found 2 hairline fractures in the headtube….. I imagine the outcome may have been disastrous if I’d landed hard after a big jump….
    Why am I writing this?
    Enjoy your riding, whatever type you choose and whatever level you do, be obsessive to a point, but remember, there are more important things in life.
    Thus endeth the sermon! ?

  2. Asberger Disorder is no longer current terminology according to DSM-5.whatever. I believe it is now Asperger Special Syndrome (ASS).

    1. Thanks for clarifying that.
      Still find it hard to differentiate between responses caused by Asperger’s or steriod abuse…… maybe Lance was both?
