Carbon Fiber Gravel Bikes are lightweight, stuff and designed to absorb vibrations, minimizing shocks from the surface while letting the rider power through the cranks.

Pros: Calm, confident and stable handling; well-designed frame storage; comfortable

Cons: Tires are fitting for the genre but slightly fragile; we'd have preferred regular mudguard mounts

Gravel Bike frames utilizing aluminum alloy are light, robust and with low manufacturing costs, making Aluminum Gravel Bikes ideal for entering the Gravel Bike World as a first timer.

Pros: Build quality; handling; performance; comfort

Cons: Squeaking brakes; need to up-spec the bike to get the most from it


J Laverack GRiT to be the closest to a “forever bike” thanks to its dependable, comfortable, quick and fun ride – not forgetting its high build quality.


It might not be a surprise that a bike for life comes with a pretty high price tag. The GRiT we tested cost more than £6,000 with Hope brakes, carbon rims and a Shimano GRX groupset.

Steel is strong and flexible so the Best Marina Del Rey Steel Gravel Bikes will be able to absorb vibrations from rough rides.

Pros: Amazing value; ideal for bikepacking

Cons: Hard to fault at this price


The Marin Nicasio + proves that simplicity is key when you’re working on a budget. It would be easy to discard this bike based on its simple steel frame and fork, and relatively high weight, but that would be a real mistake.


Yes, you’ll feel the weight on steeper climbs, but the cleverly chosen spec and excellent geometry make this bike a treat as soon as the going gets rough.


This is one of the most fun bikes to ride of its kind and yet it retails for less than the frameset of many of the best gravel bikes.


Gravel Bikes 101


Gravel Bikes are drop-bar bikes designed to ride on a wide variety of surfaces including gravel. They resemble traditional road bikes but are distinguished by four features:


Wider Tires

Since they are designed to travel through unpaved roads their tires are much larger, which also improves mud clearance.

Geometry


Gravel Bike geometry favors stability and comfort with longer wheelbases than most road bikes thanks to longer chainstays and slacker head-tube angles, which are generally taller to place riders in more relaxed upright positions.

Frame Features


Gravel Bikes tend to have extra mounting points for luggage that is ideal for Southern California bikepacking or simply adding extra bottles of water for long rides. Gravel Bike frames will also have mounts for rack and mudguards or fenders for poor weather conditions.


Handle Bars


Gravel Bikes tend to have shorter stem and wider handle bars than road drop-bar bikes, similar to mountain bike geometry, resulting in a bike that is easy to maneuver over varying terrain.

The handlebars usually have a flare to them, where they widen out from the tops to the drops. That gives you more control when descending in the drops. It also means that if you decide to fit a handlebar bag, there's more space to grab the drops without the bag getting in the way.


Gearing and Suspension


The rise of Gravel Bikes has, in turn, been accompanied by the arrival of gravel-specific groupsets. While early gravel bikes might have featured road bike groupsets with compact cranksets, the latest gravel groupsets – including Shimano GRX, Campagnolo Ekar and SRAM XPLR – provide a more suitable and forgiving selection of gears.

The latest Gravel Bikes will have active or passive gravel bike suspension systems built into them.


Much like bikes in the endurance road category, these features could take the form of slender chainstays, a bowed top tube or a skinny seatpost, all of which are designed to flex in order to absorb road chatter.
