Gravel bikes are a symbiosis between mountain bike and racing bike. They are confusingly similar to Cyclocross Bikes. The differentiation between the two types is difficult at first, because their external appearances resemble each other pretty much. Both of them are perfectly suited to surfaced but unpaved roads. Both bike types are fitted with rough profile 28 inch tires and are equipped with racing bike handlebars. The differences become more clearly if we compare the details: Gravel bikes have tires with a maximum width of 47mm and a longer wheelbase owing to a better handling performance for the straight-running stability as well as for ascents on steep passages. The deep-seated bottom bracket is a noticeable factor that ensures more stability when riding off-road. Eyelets on the fork and on the frame make it possible to retrofit mudguards. Not only does the mounting of bike packing bags make this off-road bike into an every-day bike, but also does an upright sitting position ensure a comfortable driving pleasure. Generally, one can say that whether going on a racing bike tour or on a bicycle trip or whether you ride to work or like to go on a single trail ride in the evening – gravel bikes are suitable for nearly every area and offer extensive driving pleasure.
