But what is Cyclocross? Cyclocross is a circuit race usually taking place in the autumn and winter with the course being made up of a number of laps, with each lap between 1.5-2 miles. The course takes riders over various terrain both on and off-road, the rider also has to tackle obstacles, this means you need a bike that is fast and robust, able to handle mud, grass, snow and any other terrain that the course throws at you, while being lightweight. Closely resembling a road bike, Cyclocross bikes are made with burlier parts to stand up to the rugged terrain, while keeping the weight to the minimum. The weight of the bike could make the difference between winning and losing, as during a CX race the rider may need to carry and run with their bike during the race. A cyclocross bike is designed for winter use, with the ability to handle the related conditions and thus making them very popular with road cyclists and commuters during the colder months, these bikes let you remain active and cycling the whole year round.

 

Gravel bikes are very similar to cyclocross bikes, but they are designed with comfort as a higher priority over performance. While cyclocross bikes have grippy, soft compound knobbly tyres, a gravel bike will typically have a faster rolling, longer wearing and heavier duty tyre. These bike bikes are designed for dirt roads, gravel tracks etc, and require a wide range of gears adequate for higher speeds and slow climbing speeds. A gravel bike can be seen as a slimmed down, better performing adventure bike. In other words, it’s designed for similar terrain, but to be used in a more sporting manner – possibly even raced on gravel/dirt roads.
