Gravel grinder bikes - the true all-rounders of the cycling world. The Granite 3.0 will allow you to follow your nose - knowing that your bike will be able to handle the challenge.
Simply put, Gravel-grinders (All-Road, Adventure Road or Dirt-Road-Racers) are like a Cyclocross (CX) bike built for Endurance and all-terrain riding. The features that make these bikes perfect for dirty distance racing across varied terrain also make them perfect for commuting in all conditions.
Featuring improved componentry on this popular platform, the Granite 3.0 is designed to eat up hard-packed gravel roads and poorly maintained city streets in style.
Built on the proven hydroformed alloy Granite frame and carbon fork, this gravel bike does the same reliable job as it’s predecessors - only better. The lightweight alloy frame with endurance geometry again features extras like front and rear rack mounts so you can set this bike up for commuting, touring or off-road racing. The custom carbon fork not only reduces weight, it provides flex when cornering and effectively soaks up small bumps and road buzz for a more comfortable ride.
The Granite 3.0 upgrades the crankset to FSA Omega and moves the derailleurs and levers up to Shimano Tiagra 2 x 10 speed. The clean, smooth shifting of this system has a premium feel, and the ergonomics of the contact points confirm this impression for a significant improvement in ride quality.
The highly rated TRP Spyre mechanical disc brakes offer the clearance and simplicity of cable disc, but with dual pistons for improved modulation, lever feel and balanced pad wear. All very important characteristics when things get muddy.
The other big advance on the Granite 3 is the use of thru-axles. This improves rigidity between wheel and frame and ensures your wheels are always perfectly aligned and securely seated. Fitted with 37C WTB Riddler tyres on double-wall Alex MD17 alloy rims and a CX Race saddle - this bike offers a refined ride in all conditions.
- Lightweight 6061 hydroformed alloy frame and custom carbon fork with rack and mudguard mounts, plus extra clearance for up to 40C wide tyres.
- Shimano Tiagra 2 x 10 speed derailleur and levers, with FSA Omega crankset for a refined ride.
- Thru Axles to improve rigidity, and ensure wheels are always perfectly seated and aligned.
- TRP Spyre C Mechanical Discs which feature a dual piston design for outstanding performance and even pad wear in gritty conditions.
- Durable and lightweight at 11.30 kg
FAQ - Gravel & Cyclocross
WHAT IS A GRAVEL GRINDER?
Think of it as similar to a CX bike built for Endurance riding that is also perfect for all-conditions commuting over distance.
Gravel bikes typically run a 32-35mm wide tyre (as opposed to your standard Road bike at 23-25mm). Depending on the intended purpose of the bike, these tyres can often feature a small tread for traction in the dirt. These larger tyres help protect the rim against damage, reduces punctures, improves comfort in the saddle and they’ll also leave you less fatigued after riding along bumpy surfaces all day.
Gravel creates more rolling resistance so these bikes get a little more emphasis at the lower end of the range. Durability of moving parts is also key for Gravel bikes given the rough conditions they are made to ride in - our gearing choices reflect this consideration.
Both Gravel and CX bikes have strong frames and forks that are built tough for harsh treatment. The bikes feature clearance for the bigger tyres and any mud, and plenty of front/rear rack mounts for bikepacking, touring and fully loaded commuting.
Although similar to Cyclocross bikes, Gravel-grinders feature more relaxed geometry with a slacker head tube angle, a lower centre of gravity and longer tube lengths for a more comfortable ride over longer distances. Cyclocross bikes are designed to accelerate fast and corner quickly at lower speeds, but this can feel a bit ‘twitchy’ on endurance rides along wide-open gravel roads or long regular commutes.
Most quality gravel bikes feature disc brakes as they perform better in all conditions. If you’ve ever ridden to work in the wet, you’ll understand how this reliable power and control translates to a safer commute.
