Gravel bikes are the perfect all-around bike for riding on a variety of surfaces, from paved roads to dirt trails. They are designed to be comfortable and efficient, making them a great choice for long rides or exploring new places.

You should consider your riding style and the type of terrain you will be riding on when choosing your first gravel bike. If you plan on doing a lot of road riding, you will want a bike with a more aggressive geometry and narrower tyres. If you will be riding on more technical trails, you will want a bike with a more relaxed geometry and wider tyres.

Ultimately, your gravel bike needs to fit you and your way of riding. Consider if you're looking for a casual gravel ride, a long-distance dirt adventure, a bike-packing trip, a tour, or a gravel race.

Things to keep in mind when choosing a gravel bike

When choosing a gravel bike, consider factors such as frame material, tyre clearance and gearing.

  • Geometry: The geometry of a gravel bicycle is designed to be comfortable and efficient on a variety of surfaces. Look for a bike with a relaxed geometry that will put you in a comfortable riding position. Be sure you get a bike that fits you just right. So, always check the size guide provided to find the perfect fit for you.
  • Tyres: Gravel bikes typically have wider tyres than road bikes. This helps to provide more comfort and traction on rough terrain.
  • Components: Components on gravel bikes are usually designed for durability and performance. Look for a bike with a good-quality drivetrain, brakes, and wheels.
  • Brakes: Brakes are essential for your safety, so pay attention to them! Our Gravel bicycles come with disc brakes to provide better stopping power and work well in all weather conditions.
  • Frame Material: The frame is the main part of the bike, so it's essential to consider the material it's made of. You should opt for either an aluminium frame or carbon frame. Giant's gravel bike frames are made from Advanced-grade composite carbon fibre offering a high stiffness-to-weight ratio or aluminum that is lightweight and affordable.

You will be able to narrow down your choices once you've considered these factors.

Gravel accessories such as Giant's H2 Pro luggage and the right pedals, saddle, handlebars and clothing are essential. Ultimately, the best gravel bike for you is the one that meets your specific requirements and budget.
