Road bikes are specifically designed to ride around roads, bikeways and in competitive road cycling events. They are among the most efficient bicycles on the market today and offer a huge range of price points to start with.

 

Gravel bikes are a fast growing segment in the cycling industry. The main difference between dedicated road cycles and gravel cycles is that gravel bikes accept larger sized tires and are generally a little bit more rugged.

 

The benefits of the bigger tires and rugged frame is that they are designed to ride dirt and gravel roads more efficiently than any other kind of bike. They are very popular with long distance dirt road cyclists, road cyclists who want to ride away from traffic, and also bike touring enthusiasts who want an efficient and comfortable bike that is capable of handling any kind of road condition.
