The UK is set to take a bold step towards the gravel bike revolution with the introduction of a new gravel bike.
A new “gravel bike” will allow riders to take their favourite gravel bikes to the races, where they will race with gravel wheels and use a specialised carbon fibre fork.
This is an important step for the UK, as many riders will only be able to use their favourite bikes on gravel roads.
However, the UK also has a large gravel bike market, which is still struggling to develop due to the introduction and use of bikes that have less weight.
This new gravel motorcycle will be the world’s fastest, but will be even more powerful, as it will be capable of taking the lead on gravel courses.
Specialised forks and carbon fibre wheels have been used on the British gravel bikes since the late 1960s, and many gravel bikes use these components to make them more comfortable.
However they do have their drawbacks.
Specialisation can make the bike harder to ride, and the carbon fibre forks can wear and break over time.
Specialising forks and tyres are expensive and time-consuming to install, and it takes a lot of skill to get the right one to fit.
The gravel bike is designed to have the best of both worlds.
It will be faster, but also much more powerful.
The Specialized G4, for example, is the world champion in the race for the fastest road gravel bike on the road.
However it can also be very frustrating to ride when the bike isn’t in the best condition and needs to be replaced every few months.
With the introduction, Specialized will have an affordable option for gravel bike riders, making them a more attractive option for those looking to use a gravel bike as their main option.
Specialized’s new gravel road bike will also be more agile, able to tackle more steep terrain and harder hills, and will also allow the rider to race faster.
The bike is set for a release in 2018, with more details to be announced on the UK’s gravel bike launch date.
Specialization is also set to launch its own brand of gravel bikes in 2018.
However we are hopeful that this will not be the end of the UK gravel bike movement, and that we will see a new generation of gravel bike manufacturers come up with more innovative and powerful models.
