Wilier Trestina has entered the ever growing adventure road market with two new models, first up is the Jaroon+, a simply gorgeous looking brazed and polished steel frame designed around 27+ tyres.
The frame stands out thanks to its beautifully machined dropouts, high-polish finish and brazed welds that use a process Wilier is calling internal brazing. This process sees the brazing material inserted into the tube joints and torched to melting point with some quite serious skill, giving a clean, uniform, linear finish to the welds — which looks simply stunning.
The fat-tyre specification may have limited appeal, but we reckon the Jaroon+ looks like some serious fun. We’ve already put in our order for a test bike so we’ll report back to tell you if it’s as much fun as it is good looking.
For those looking for a tamer gravel cum bike-packing machine, Wilier also has a standard Jaroon (with the same gorgeous weld finish on the frame) that runs on a still wide, but a bit more ‘normal’ set of 42c Maxxis Happy medium treads.
For a more affordable option they’ve also got the a more entry-level aluminium take on the platform called the Jareen (though sadly no plus option yet), and the alloy Jareen has clearance for up to 42mm tyres.
Both the Jaroon and Jareen have geometry that’s based on their existing carbon GTR line with endurance geometry, but with a slightly longer wheelbase and a 50mm offset on the fork to make it a bit more rough-stuff-ready.
