Wilier Jaroon Plus Complete Bike - 2017 $2,640.00
Made for it.
Whether it's for racing or bikepacking, gravel bikes are about simplicity and durability. We're hard pressed to think of a bike that embodies the latter quality better than the Jaroon Plus Complete Bike. Steel frame; long, stable geometry; SRAM one-by drivetrain—the Jaroon bleeds gravel pedigree. This is only magnified by the Plus model's huge tire clearance, which is showcased here with massive 3in donuts that add a healthy amount of pneumatic suspension and mold-to-terrain grip.
The flaired bars and Boost axles add a bit of performance pep to the Jaroon Plus, giving it the stiffness to drive watts into gravel and loose pine needles and the support base to navigate the front end through terrain while doing so. Bascially, the Jaroon represents a glorious return to the early days of mountain biking where guys like Ritchey (whose company provides some of the cockpit bits) were cramming the biggest tires they could onto rigid road frames. We'd claim that it's just as fun now as it was then, but we'd be lying—the Jaroon Plus' titanic tires are plusher than anything the OG mountain bike culture could fit on a frame, so it's all that more fun to ride.

Can someone help me understand why a bike like this exists? Slow on the road, poor bars for mountain biking, no idea what the geometry is. Maybe Wilier did their April Fools early?
I wondered this myself, so I talked to our gravel grinding expert Brett Cole. Turns out this bike was designed for bike packing, and adventure riding. It is ideal for riding long stretches of gravel roads with loose gravel and sand. Though the bars aren't ideal for riding single track trails, this bike could handle some light duty single track. Ultimately, the customer base for this bike is very narrow, but Wilier has a unique product on offer for a small number of adventurers out there.
Thanks for posting your question!
I have no logical answer for you other than N+1. For some reason I’m drawn to this Bike even though I know it has very limited use to me.
friend, until you have embarked on fat or half fat adventures you can't possibly understand. not everyone rides to go fast. sometimes, joy comes from going over or through absolutely everything in your path. for those of us who'd rather ride like that, these bikes exist.
we don't stop at creek crossings, bumpy pot holes, or washed out trails, we power through it all. and they can ride that way with a hell gear should you opt for back country travel.
i have a Salsa Deadwood and it fast became my favorite commuter all round bike to take everywhere b/c it's comfortable, softens the bumps, climbs better than all the roadies on dirt, and is fast as heck on single track.
before going fat, i was like you, arrogantly unimaginative as to why anyone would ride something to slow them down. but i have since gone to the widest possible tires all my bikes will accept as it's just better and brings more joy than sheer speed.
fat and half fat brings the most joy and giggles you would never have imagined are possible. and my transformation didn't occur after one or even 3 rides, it took a month at least before the physics and geometry synced with my former MTB racing, riding for speed style. but with these bikes, there is no dismounts, just keep pedaling and you get past it. life's mantra manifested in this steel steed.
