Campagnolo’s unbeatable 13-speed Ekar groupset and Levante wheelset is now available to experience for Rapha Cycling Club members at their clubhouses across the world.
The Rapha Cycling Club (RCC) now has OPEN bikes specced with Campagnolo’s world-leading groupset and wheelset to make the Rapha riding experience one that feels special, wherever in the world you are.
For over 80 years, Campagnolo’s forged a reputation for delivering innovative, industry-changing gear that makes every rider dream that bit bigger, pedal that bit harder.
It’s a similar story over at Rapha, who design and create some of the world’s finest cycling apparel and accessories.

Wonders of Ekar and Levante
As thousands of you know, the 13-speed Ekar groupset’s been chosen because it’s designed for the rigours and challenges of all-terrain riding that'll elevate your experience and enjoyment to another level.
Highlights are many but, as a snapshot, they include: a 13-speed cassette for an impressive spread of gear ratios to cope with all challenges and climbs; dependable shifting even in the most challenging of conditions; brakes that deliver impressive stopping each and every team; and, typically Campagnolo, they look stunning.
As for the Levante, this carbon wheelset is light for swift handling, stiff for climbing and beautifully compliant for descending.
Two years in the making, the Levante was designed to complement the 13-speed Ekar groupset so you can effortlessly access the unique gear ratios of the Ekar transmission.
Typically Campagnolo, the aesthetics is next level, too. Take the stunning mirror-like Campagnolo Luxury (C-LUX) finish, which is so smooth that no lacquer’s needed. That said, it’s not all about visual stimulation as blemish-free moulding saves weight, too.
In short, it’s a special wheelset that’ll enliven your RCC ride wherever you hire.
