Gravel Bikes

The all-in-one bike

Colorful leaves are lying on a winding forest path and you enjoy the smell of the trees - the bike is almost running by itself! Out of the woods, you ride on with high pace on a lonely country road and suck in the sunbeams. And all this with one single bike and equipment that can do it all - this is gravel biking, one of the coolest and most sustainable trends of recent years.
Gravel bikes are bikes for every occasion - be it on a singletrack, for commuting to work, for your after work ride on the road or on a 500 km holiday tour. Similar to a cyclocross bike, they offer an extremely universal range of applications. Gravel bikes have tires that are up to 47 mm wide and, thanks to a longer wheelbase, have better handling characteristics for both straight-line riding and climbing steep sections. A striking point is the relatively low bottom bracket, which provides more stability off-road. The mounting eyelets on the fork and frame make it possible to retrofit mudguards. Just as extensive is our range of parts for gravel bikes. Whether it's the M-Wave Rough Ride bag series, the grippy Kenda Flintridge or the M-Wave Mud Max Race mudguards, for every terrain and any weather condition - you will find suitable accessories for your gravel bikes on our gravel bike theme page.

Perfect Storage Space

Our waterproof bags suited for gravel bikes offer a lot of storage space despite their small size. The bags in our M-Wave Rough Ride series are an ideal combination between a lot of storage space and a light weight. Despite the mounting of the bags on the bike without brackets, the drivability is not affected.
The bag system was particularly developed to be used on gravel bikes. Functional and appealing design, quality on the highest level and years of experience lead to an excellent result to be proud of.

Ideal Grip

With our Kenda Flintridge tires and our Velo handlebar tape your bike is completely under your control. The tires are especially suitable for hard surfacing. The combination of two rubber compounds grants a firm hold in bends and causes low rolling resistance and therefore for a longer working life.
The special surface of the Velo Grip handlebar tape prevents slipping and absorbs vibrations. The handlebar remains antiskid also in humid conditions. Grip and a firm hold are also important for pedals. Exustar clipless pedals with a Shimano SPD system ensure a secure hold on every ground. A good alternative is the M-Wave Freedom Clipless combination pedal that can also be used with normal everyday shoes.

We offer useful and practical accessories for everything to do with gravel bikes. A nice bike is also very popular with thieves. Should it be stolen, our AirBell and AirCase BC Airtag holders increase the chance for I-Phone users to find it again. For the right view at night, we recommend our street-legal M-Wave lamps. The Rayon PC Ultra glasses with photochromic lenses, which darken as soon as they are exposed to UV radiation, guarantee a clear view in daylight. In dark surroundings, on the other hand, the lenses brighten up again immediately.

Dirt protection

There is not always good weather on the way. Sometimes clouds can come up within a very short time and it starts to rain. Stable and reliable mudguards offer the best protection against splashing water and mud during the ride.
In no time these mudguards can be mounted on the fork, the chainstays or on the lower tube. They are inconspicuous and do not destroy the clean look of the gravel bike.
