It’s time for another episode of Tech of the Month! This month, we’ve stuffed our Christmas sack full to the brim with the latest gear and tech across the world of cycling.
First up, Technical Editor Tom Marvin runs us through a sleeveless jacket from Sportful that we have no doubt will draw plenty of opinions in the comments, as well as a useful bike storage solution and fancy valves from Reserve.
Our Video Manager, Felix, then gives you a look at a handmade superlight saddle for you weight weenies out there. If that saddle gets you wanting more from Berk then check out the unbelievably featherweight bike they made → https://youtu.be/-fDakhFcbd8
For those of you that suffer from the cold (or get a more severe winter than the UK) Felix shows off some deep winter gear from Gore, including a pair of overshoes brighter than Rudolph’s nose.
If all that wasn’t enough, Jack gives you the key details on the Wilier Rave SLR gravel bike. As you’d expect from an Italian brand, our test bike is built up with Campagnolo’s Ekar groupset which will please the purists amongst you.
Keep an eye out for a more detailed video on Wilier’s brand new bike in the New Year.

What do you think of the latest tech to land at BikeRadar HQ? Should all Italian bikes be built up with Campagnolo? Would you buy the sleeveless jacket? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
