Gravel bike basics
The bike to suit (almost) all your whims
Gravel bike or mountain bike, what’s the difference? The Gravel bike came to us straight from the States and appeared not long ago in France and seems to be the new favourite plaything for cyclists. The word ‘gravel’ just means that you can go anywhere with it. Electric gravel bikes, gravel biking on roads… It adapts to different types of use, for leisure riding or for the more seasoned cyclists and you can ride on a variety of terrains: gravel, trail and muddy or stony paths. A perfect blend of the athletic aspect of the mountain bike and the comfort of a hybrid bike. With its tyres that are 10 mm wider than a classic road bike, the gravel bike is mainly for sports use, but be careful all the same on dangerous paths and keep to your good mountain biking habits. Practically speaking, it’s a multipurpose bike which combines the pleasure of a road bile and the adventurous spirit of mountain biking, to satisfy all your discovery wishes!
