Bikes ... Gravel
Gravel-roadbikes are a new trend coming from america, which presents a compromise between road- and crossbike. Spirit and purpose of the whole thing is to be able to play off the strengths of a road bike beyond beyond asphalted roads. With their voluminous tires, disc-brakes, long wheelbase and flat steer angle, gravel bikes exhibit great running smoothness and high directional stability. Furthermore, the (compared to crossbikes) low-lying driver´s centre of gravity ensures secure handling in curves, even at high speed. So, a gravel bike is interesting mainly for those, who use their road bike not only for sports, but also for everyday life and tours far from paved roads.
