Gravel bikes are the number one bike of choice for anyone who likes to ride on mixed surface terrains. Suitable for cycling on tarmac roads or loose surface trails, gravel bikes are a cross-country cycling must have. Light and dynamic, gravel bikes are designed to move quickly over uneven surfaces. When you are cycling the roughest of Ireland’s rough terrain, gravel bikes offer the most efficient ride you can get.
Typically, gravel bikes have drop handles and slim, but grippy, tyres protected by mud guards. Gravel bikes allow you to enjoy the versatility of travelling through fields and muck to reach your destination. Making them a more adaptable option than a standard road bike and a study choice than a racer.
Essentially, a gravel bike is a road bike with wider tyres, stable handling and lower gears. For anyone looking for a bike that commutes by day and goes cross-country on weekends, they are a great choice. Perfect for cyclists looking for a bike that is equally comfortable for on and off-road or long-distance adventures.
