(What's a gravel bike?)
More robust than a road bike and much quicker and lighter than a mountain bike. Gravel bikes offer an
interesting option for the riders who want to travel on and off road. To put it simply, a gravel bike combines a
road bike with a cyclo-cross bike. There adaptability, versatility, and ruggedness make them a perfect commuting
bike, an ideal light touring or, a great winter training bike, or one bike that can just about tackle anything
you throw at it! All gravel bikes have disc brakes, hydraulic disc brakes offer more stopping power especially
in wintery conditions or when riding off road. Gravel bikes tend to have more clearance which allows wider
tyres which not only increase comfort but also increase grip levels. The extra clearance also allows the use
of mudguards so many manufacturers use lugs with eyelets for ease of fitting. Altogether, this makes a very
strong augment for owning a gravel bike!
