Specialized for example is a huge brand with a bike for every purpose. If they found a new purpose they produce a new bike, not making one bike for 2 or more things. N+1
Kona isn’t such a big brand and they got a new Cyclocross made both for racing, gravelgrinding and even commuting:
Then there are smaller brands, like 3T and Open that really makes special bikes built for a purpose. They got 2 models each.
A brand that is even smaller is the Icelandic Lauf. Starting with light carbon spring forks, developing a gravelfork with carbon springs called Grit. And now, a frame they call True Grit:
It’s longer than usual gravelbikes and a bit of new thinking. I like brands who think and goes their own way of what’s best. Pushing the industry forward and making others open their minds.
No matter it’s great with a bigger market of gravelbikes. More to choose from and when you found the right one you know why it’s the best 🙂 (not just the only one in its category)
Which is the best gravelbike according to you and why?
