Tradition meets modernity.
Gravel bikes have nowadays found a permanent place in the bicycle scene and - thanks to their wide range of uses - are enjoying ever-increasing popularity. The category skillfully mixes features of the segments cyclo cross, randonneur and road bike and is thus at home on almost any surface. The basic idea comes from the USA and the target group of the segment is quite simple to describe: All those who like to ride a comfortable road bike, but not always on asphalt, but also in the forest, on gravel or in light terrain.
Our Gravel bikes offer a frame geometry that is suitable for long, sporty tours and, combined with the typical material properties of the steel frame, provides a high level of sporty riding comfort. The seating position is somewhat more upright than on a pure road bike and a longer wheelbase, also due to a longer rear triangle, ensures excellent smoothness and reliable straight-line stability.
In light terrain, on gravel, field and forest paths, wider tires score with a lot of grip, for example, the 4.5 cm wide G One-R Race gravel tire from Schwalbe on the GX-1200. For touring riders and bike packers, our Gravel bikes offer a sufficiently large number of mounting points for bottle cages, panniers, racks, lights and much more.
The gravel-typical use of powerful disc brakes provides a plus in safety, so that bad weather, steep or long descents and changing ground lose their fright.
