Best of the best gravel bikes 2022: Cyclist's top-rated gravel and adventure bikes

Our pick from the latest gravel bikes as reviewed by the Cyclist team

Gravel bikes are incredibly versatile. Capable both on and off-road, they’re able to carry you across a variety of terrain types. They’re robust, they’re fun to ride and they generally employ a lot of the best in modern technology, including disc brakes and beginner-friendly wide-ratio gearing.

Most gravel bikes are still light enough and quick enough for use on the tarmac despite their broad capabilities, making them a great all-round choice, and arguably the best option if you’re only going to own just one bike.

A quick skim through our reviews over the past few seasons reveals just how quickly the gravel market has exploded. From the occasional inclusion to becoming a mainstay of our testing, gravel bikes are everywhere.

With almost every manufacturer now offering at least one of these incredibly capable mixed-terrain bikes in their ranges, we’ve been hard at work riding as many of them as possible.

Every gravel bike featured here has been put to the test on a variety of terrain by our team of expert reviewers.

Best aluminium gravel bikes (plus bonus magnesium)

Cannondale Topstone 1

  • Price: £1,999

While Cannondale’s alloy Topstone is a bit less radical than the suspension-equipped carbon versions, it’s still a very practical and versatile machine, and our pick of the bunch would be the Topstone 1 with its mix of Shimano 105, Ultegra and Tiagra-equivalent GRX components.

With plenty of mounting points for racks and mudguards, you could almost mistake it for a touring bike. At the same time, generous gearing (a subcompact 46/30 crank and 11-34 cassette on this model) mean it’s happy to spin yourself and any kit you’re carrying up any off-road ascent.

While the alloy frame adds a bit of weight versus carbon, the bike is well specced, plus the WTB Nano tyres run quickly on and off-road, thanks to their reasonably continuous central tread.

Canyon Grail 7

  • Price: £1,799

This superb value bike from direct-to-consumer firm Canyon scored a rare five-out-of-five. Based around a capable aluminium frame, its 40mm tyres provide plenty of versatility, while a double chainring Shimano GRX gravel groupset is an excellent find at this price.

With DT Swiss supplying the lightweight wheelset, which arrives tubeless as standard, we couldn’t find any weak links in the Grail’s armour.

Adding up to a machine weighing the same as you’d expect for a similarly priced road model, space for mudguards (Canyon’s own – there’s no seatstay bridge) mean it’s all the drop bar bike many riders will ever need.

Felt Breed 20

  • Price: €2,649

The Felt Breed possesses an aluminium frame so nicely constructed you’re unlikely to wish you’d saved a bit more and got something made of carbon. With plenty of hydroforming and machining, it provides well-mannered handling, along with generous 45mm tyre clearance and space for a durable threaded T47 bottom bracket shell.

With a single-chainring SRAM Force drivetrain, the Breed’s wide, flared handlebars provide plenty of leverage. Employing 40mm Vittoria Terreno tyres fitted to Devox wheels, the bike’s overall weight is acceptable too. It’s a quality that helps the Breed make a decent fist of everything you could reasonably expect a drop-bar bike to attempt.

Giant Revolt 0

  • Price: £1,799

Keenly priced, the Giant Revolt provides a perfect introduction to riding off-piste. With a low-slung frame and 38mm tyres, it’s capable on the rough stuff.

However, a largest 48t chainring and 11-speed 11-34 cassette mean it’s pacy enough to be happy on the road too. Still, just because it’s versatile doesn't mean the Revolt hedges its bets. With space for tyres up to 45mm, its already significant off-road capabilities can easily be pushed further.

Benefiting from Giant’s massive buying power, the kit list is excellent, one result being the inclusion of Shimano’s outstanding hydraulic 105 brakes and gearing.

We reviewed the 2021 model, but the 2022 Giant Revolt promises similarly appealing qualities and adds in flip-chips at the axles for adjustable geometry.

Vaast A/1

  • Price: £1,719

With radically dropped chainstays, clever internal cable routing, and a bright red metallic paint job, the Vaast makes no secret of its metal frame. Made of magnesium rather than aluminium, this leaves it both lighter and more compliant than bikes created from more traditional alloys.

With a spring in its step, it left our reviewer reckoning it also provides excellent value. Apparent in both the frameset and the parts hanging off it, this is a remarkable achievement for a comparatively small firm. Our test model came with Stan’s excellent Grail S1 wheels. However, Vaast offers multiple builds, including one based around diminutive and nimble 650b wheels.

Best carbon gravel bikes

Basso Palta II

  • Price: £3,599

The gravel renaissance has largely been propped up by people rediscovering their suspensionless mountain bike-oriented youth, but it’s also become a breath of fresh air for those with road fatigue, having spent ten years since the 2012 boom riding the same country lanes.

Basso’s Palta II appeals to the road cyclist who wants to get in on the action with a racier feel that will still take on rough surfaces with ease and helps build confidence on unfamiliar territory while still performing well on tarmac.

Since its first edition the Italian brand has made some alterations to further enhance comfort through features that better damp bumps and vibrations including a gravel-specific carbon fibre handlebar as well as a more relaxed geometry.

Cannondale Topstone Lefty 

  • Price:£7,500

A bike for the daring off-road rider, the Topstone features a single-sided suspension fork, plus a frame with radically dropped seatstays that lead that connect to the seat tube via a pivot, allowing the the rear triangle to act as a leaf spring.

Rolling on smaller 650b wheels and sporting a cassette wider than on some mountain bikes, it’s a design that plonks itself squarely in the wilderness. However, it’s far from being weird for the sake of weird. For starters, the 30mm suspension fork works exceptionally, plus looks way more pleasing than those found on many other bikes. The same goes for the frame’s matching ability to gobble up bumps.

Of course, both add weight and cost limit the Topstone’s appeal to some riders. However, if you want to get rowdy, this is a bike that’s very happy to play along.

Canyon Grizl

  • Price: £2,949

A bike that shares more in appearance with Canyon’s Endurace road range than the firm’s more extreme Grail, the Grizl provides a perfect mid-point. Looking fairly conventional, its slim seatstays, massive 50mm tyre clearance and flexible VCLS carbon post all keep things comfy.

At the same time, a short and tall geometry, wide bars, and plentiful mounting points mean it’s both capable and adaptable.

Not the most racy, but also far from being over-built, the Grizl provides supreme comfort and competency on most gravel trails. Capable of being pushed a little further in either direction, it’s also excellent value.

Cervélo Áspero

  • Price: £3,399

Known for making fast road bikes, the off-road Cervélo Áspero is almost equally speedy. Marketed with the slogan ‘haul ass, not cargo’, it’s unashamedly racy. Of course, this doesn’t mean you couldn’t strap bikepacking bags to it, and there’s even a mount for a snack box on the top tube.

However, if you want to go out and win yourself some gravel races, this is the sort of bike that will help you do so. With a low frame weight and nippy handling, it’s literally and figuratively head-down in its approach to riding.

This balance is kept stable whatever tyres you use thanks to something Cervélo calls the ‘Trail Mixer’. Allowing the fork offset to be adjusted to maintain consistent handling, it permits the Áspero to work with 700c or 650b gravel wheelsets or slick road tyres.


  • Price: £2,850

With a suspension fork on the more rugged LT version, remote-activated dropper seatpost, and wide tyres, the URS is a fair few stops along with the trail to mountain bike town. And that’s before you consider its radically slack carbon frame and its in-built rear damper.

Offering 30mm of suspension at the front (a rigid fork version is also available) matched to 10mm at the back, the bike’s off-road abilities are further intensified by a super-wide cassette and single-ring drivetrain courtesy of SRAM’s electronic ASX line. 

Superbly capable on the rough stuff, it’s good on smoother surfaces too. Just don’t expect it ever to be mistaken for a road bike.

Festka Scout

  • Price: £4,450

With excellent handling and room for 650b wheels and up to 50mm-wide tyres (42mm with 700c), Festka’s latest gravel bike packs a punch both on and off the road. 

It’s the brand’s first 1×-specific bike, and with its longer wheelbase it was clearly built with bikepacking in mind but it’s still a responsive and agile gravel bike. 

The Scout’s round and straight tubes make it stiff but not uncomfortable, and aim to offer a neat balance of strength, damping and impact-resistance for riding on rough terrain.

The Scout also offers copious possibilities for bags and racks at no detriment to performance – this is a bike tailored for adventure. 

Our reviewer didn’t want to give it back. 

FiftyOne Assassin

  • Price: €3,499

Variable geometry ensures the FiftyOne Assassin has an adaptable personality. Add in serious clearance, plus a ton of different mounting points, and this bike manages to do a lot of different things well.

This capability is boosted via flip-chips, alloy inserts in the dropouts that can be flipped – from a high to a low position at the fork or across three different fore-aft positions at the rear.

Radically changing the handling from cruiser-like to something far sportier, this allows the Assassin to manage everything from touring duties to mountain bike-style trails. Add in clearance for 47mm tyres, extensive carry capacity, plus wiring for a dynamo hub, and this is a bike you can make of what you want.

Giant Revolt Advanced Pro 1

  • Price £4,499

A keenly-priced do-it-all gravel bike. Lightweight on account of its carbon chassis and wheels, the Giant Revolt provides a fabulous ride that’s fast, lively and fun. At the same time, its many mounts and generous clearances offer true versatility.

Striking an optimal balance between road-bike-with-abnormally-large-tyres and mountain-bike-with-strange-curly-handlebars, it’s pitch-perfect gravel. With an extended reach to accommodate a shorter stem, the bike’s stack is pretty lofty, which should suit less race-focused riders.

Its disposition can also be adapted thanks to the integrated flip-chips, which allow you to adjust the bike’s geometry. Fitted with 40mm tyres, there’s a definite roadie-esque verve to the Revot’s ride. However, although quick, you might want to swap them for anything other than solid surfaces. This small note aside, it’s one of the best gravel bikes we’ve ridden.

GT Grade Carbon Pro

  • Price: £3,300

Plush over the bumps, unyielding when stamping on the pedals, the Grade benefits from a wonderfully composed frame. Light and punchy to ride, it nonetheless has plenty of mounting points if you want to weigh it down.

Generally somewhere near the middle when it comes to striking a balance between gnar and far, it still benefits from adjustable geometry thanks to its flip-chip fork. Allowing for greater stability, this is particularly designed to benefit anyone choosing to carry bags on the bike.

It’s available with single or double chainring drivetrains, with going for the latter increasing the Grade’s on-road abilities. However, the simplicity of the single ring system will likely appeal to more off-road-focussed riders.

Specialized S-Works Crux

  • Price: £11,300

The world’s lightest gravel bike, the S-Works version of the Crux isn’t far off being the world’s most expensive either. Inspired by Specialized’s road-going Aethos, it’s designed to be sharp handling, incredibly light and, perhaps surprisingly, exceptionally user-friendly.

It manages this thanks to easy-to-access semi-internal cabling, a threaded bottom bracket, and a conventional stem and seatpost assembly. Beautiful looking, more than almost any other bike, there’s no reason the Crux couldn't serve as your sole drop-bar ride.

At the same time, with space for tyres up to 47mm, it’s hugely capable off-road. A refined and racy bicycle, the Crux sits at the fastest end of the gravel spectrum.

Vielo V+1 Alto

  • Price: £5,999

A refined gravel racer, the slender V+1 Alto is light and efficient. With blanched handling, it’s a bike pleasingly free from gimmicks.

That’s not to say it isn’t radical. It’s restricted to using only a single chainring, and this design choice has been leveraged by Vielo to provide enormous clearance for tyres up to 50mm, along with uninterrupted seatstays to help improve ride comfort.

Stiff where you want it to be, compliant where that works better, and light all over, it’s a racy gravel bike that will fare well with a number board pinned to it. It’s a bike that’s suited to riders more interested in speed and distance over competence on the most rugged terrain, and we’re big fans.

Pinarello Grevil

  • Price: £3,800

Pinarello is famous for its road bikes, and the Grevil takes a typically Pinarello-style approach to the gravel market. Transferring over the radical tube shapes from its road range results in a bike that’s not only distinctive but is perfect for those seeking stiffness and speed on and off-road.

Premium in price, Pinarello has jumped onto the bandwagon wholesale with (optional) 650b wheels and an outrageously wide-ratio cassette. At the same time, a tight back end and sharp angles mean handling is definitely on the responsive side. With aero profiles and exotic carbon material, it’s very much the Pinarello experience transferred to the dirt.

Pinarello Grevil F

  • Price £7,000

The latest version of Pinarello’s gravel bike looks relatively similar to its forebear but offers a different mix of materials and a drastically different geometry. Despite a now much-increased stack height, the ride is still racy.

In terms of its makeup, the Grevil has swapped from using the lightest and stiffest Toray carbon fibre. Judging that thousands extra on the price probably wasn’t worth the grams saved when applied to a gravel bike, it now employs more workaday materials. In part, the money saved has helped the brand keep its prices stable.

Of course, this top-end build with Princeton Grit wheels and Campagnolo’s Ekar groupset still costs a chunky £7,000. A racey proposition, don’t expect mounts or even extra bottle cage fixings. Instead, the Grevil is a pure head-down off-road racer.

Ridley Kanzo Fast

  • Price: £4,909

The aggressive-looking Kanzo Fast could be the only bike you’ll need both on and off-road. The fast in the name isn’t there by chance.

Looking a lot like Ridley’s Noah Fast aero road bike, this is indeed a bike designed to go very quickly regardless of the surface. With a slightly higher and shorter geometry than the brand’s road bikes, the Kanzo is still pretty purposeful, a trait improved upon by its noticeable stiffness. Plus, you even get aerodynamic bars.

Unsurprisingly, there are smoother-riding or more capable gravel bikes out there. However, there aren’t many as purposeful, or that will also behave as well on the road.

Santa Cruz Stigmata CC

  • Price: £4,099

A gravel-influenced cyclocross bike. Alternatively, a cyclocross bike with a sun-baked Californian disposition. Perhaps the latest Stigmata is a bit of both.

More relaxed, with a lower bottom bracket, plus the option to fit fenders, this new version has been shaped by the requests riders made of its cyclocross-specific previous iteration.

Still light and stiff, plenty of the original bike's fighting spirit remains. Only marginally relaxed, its geometry is also still pretty flighty.

However, now backed by clearance for tyres up to 45mm, it's capable as a general gravel bike, a competitive cyclocross racer, and with a change of tyres and the right gearing, would be happy riding a sportive or audax.

Specialized S-Works Diverge

  • Price:£11,600

The first of Specialized’s genre-defining gravel bikes, the Diverge benefits from a Future Shock system that incorporates a suspension cartridge in the top of the fork steerer, effectively suspending the cockpit.

Paired to a relaxed and steady geometry, this makes the Diverge a great place to spend an extended spell.

However, for anyone imagining this makes for a slouchy ride, it’s worth remembering this is the bike that’s repeatedly won the world's most prestigious gravel race, Unbound.

With broader gearing and increased clearance, it’s no coincidence that it remains one of the best selling models on the market. And while the flagship S-Works model is seriously expensive, there are considerably more affordable options in the range that share many of the same qualities.

Trek Checkpoint SL 6

  • Price £4,000

A bike that provides some neat tricks while providing plenty of fun. Trek’s Checkpoint hits the sweet spot with a mix of raciness and versatility.

Its carbon frame uses the well-known Isospeed system, which allows the seat tube to flex fore and aft independently of the rest of the frame without compromising on stiffness.

Other areas are also richly featured, with a neat down tube hatch hidden underneath the bottle cage mount, a bash-guard on the down tube, and a dropped drive-side chainstay to help accommodate 700c tyres up to 45mm.

Available in various guises, this build isn’t the lightest. Nevertheless, it benefits from excellent tyres supported by broad-rimmed wheels. The Sram Rival eTap AXS groupset also functions superbly. Its single 40t chainring works nicely with the 10-44t cassette to give great range without too big a jump between each sprocket.

Taken together, we found the Checkpoint a well-specced and highly capable machine.

3T Exploro RaceMax

  • Price: £4,599

A product of the mad mind of Gerard Vroomen, there aren’t many bikes that look like the Exploro RaceMax. One of the first of an increasing number of gravel bikes to take aerodynamics seriously, the Exploro’s tight angles, dropped stays, and tucked rear wheel all echo 3T’s racing bike designs.

At the same time, enormous tyres and the ability to run it with a single chainring and 650b wheels mean the Exploro is very capable. A great bike for a broad spectrum of gravel riders, it sits particularly well with all-road riders and competitive gravel racers.

From its profile to its paint job, it’s also very handsome, which never hurts either.

3T Exploro Ultra

  • Price: from £5,699

The Exploro Ultra marries extreme off-road capability with a fast ride on road to create a versatile and distinctive design. The third iteration of 3T’s popular but controversial aero gravel bike, the Exploro Ultra has been shaped to work best with wide 650b tyres around 55mm-61mm.

Made for the most technical and therefore slowest terrain, the Ultra’s aero benefits are most likely to pay dividends on the rarer occasions it’s used on the road. At the same time, it utilises its big tyres to override the framesets’ otherwise aggressive attributes once off-road.

Other radical features include a dropper post and a super-wide single-ring drivetrain. So how does it add up? It’s undoubtedly the most exaggerated example of how designer Gerard Vroomen can successfully squish together two typically disparate drop-bar genres – aero and gravel.

Leveraging the transformative effect of tyre size and pressure, the Ultra switches personalities as extremely as it mixes genres. Off-road, its chunky Vittoria tyres offset the harshness of the  aero frame and allowed it to take on technical terrain. Yet back on the tarmac, the frame’s attributes become more dominant, leaving it feeling far more like quick road bike than its off-road capability would otherwise suggest.

Best Steel Gravel Bikes

Condor Bivio 

  • Price: £1,000 (frame only)

This steely machine is an adventurous gravel bike with the genes of a road bike but the rough style of gravel. 

The Bivio will take 650b tyres with clearance for up to 47s, or 700c tyres up to 42mm, but we found it was best suited to the latter size, given that the head angle and bottom bracket height is similar to that of a road bike.

Built from triple-butted, custom-formed Columbus Spirit tubing, and benefitting from a carbon fork, the Bivio offers as close to a custom ride that an off-the-shelf model can produce. 

It also has plenty of discreet mounts making it set up for bikepacking adventures. 

Our reviewer found it to be ‘near-perfect’, fast and versatile and the ideal bike for a road cyclist looking to try out the trails. 

Genesis Fugio 30

  • Price: £2,999

Strong and forgiving, steel makes a solid choice for bikes destined to have a hard life. If you intend to load the aforementioned bicycle with bikepacking bags or panniers, this goes double.

However, despite being equipped to lug you and your gear to the ends of the earth, the Fugio is equally happy spending its days mucking about in the woods.

A fact suggested by our build’s dropper seatpost and 650b wheels, the Fugio is a very modern bike made from a traditional material.

Accentuated by a vivid paint job and more mounting points than we knew what to do with, it understandably weighs a bit more than we might like. Still, we found it to be tons of fun.

Stayer Groadinger UG

  • Price: £1,600 (frame only)

A small batch production bike that offers as much fun as it’s possible to have while hanging off of a set of drop bars.

The gnarlier of Stayer’s two gravel models, the Groadinger UG possesses a trail-friendly geometry and comes as standard with nimble 650b wheels.

Almost like a road bike-inspired mountain bike, those after something only a tyre swap away from being at home on the tarmac might want to look elsewhere.

However, we think the Groadinger is a classic among its own small sub-genre. Custom made, there's also the option to spec practical touches like mudguard or rack mounts.

Best Titanium Gravel Bikes

Kinesis Tripster ATR V3

  • Price: £1,899 (frame only)

Affordable (for titanium) and massively versatile, the Tripster benefits from a decade of evolution. This adventure tourer was early onto the scene, and has recently become even more capable with increased clearance, more load-carrying capacity, and an upgraded carbon fork.

As at home on a mixed surface touring weekend as it is taking on a competitive gravel race, this durable and forgiving titanium frame flatters in almost any situation. The ATR acronym stands for ‘Adventure-Tour-Race’, and it’s truly capable of all three.

Built for riding, not fettling, simple standards including semi-internal cabling and a threaded bottom bracket keep it rolling with a minimum of maintenance hassle.

Moots Routt RSL

  • Price: £6,700 (frame only)

The Routt is pretty close to being the perfect single bike. It’s a delight off-road yet gobbles up the tarmac with equal gusto.

This is managed thanks to its exquisite titanium construction and a geometry that transfers between genres without giving much away.

With clearance for tyres up to 45mm, swapping the treads redefines the bike, leaving the Routt as close to being a single bicycle for all occasions as we can think of.

Beautifully made and likely to outlive its owner, it justifies its rarified pricetag and gains an equally rare five-star review.

Moots Routt YBB

  • Price: £5,400 (frame only) 

YBB stands for ‘why be beat?’, and the moniker is applied here to a titanium gravel bike with the addition of ultra-minimalist rear suspension.

Using a classic softail design, the Routt YBB integrates a simple damper into its seatstay bridge and uses the flexibility of its titanium chainstays to allow rear wheel travel. This bike aims to answer the question in its name without adding significant weight.

Resulting in a bike that’s fabulously comfortable and composed on rough surfaces, it manages this without giving away much in terms of power transfer.

Assembled and finished with real skill and infinitely durable, its premium price comes with the option to customise the rest of the spec.

Passoni Cicloprato

  • Price: €6,120 (frame only) 

The gorgeous Cicloprato is a handmade titanium gravel bike created to order in Milan. As such, it’s both highly customisable and very expensive.

Latin scholars won’t need us to remind them that ‘prato’ means meadow. And our tester found the Cicloprato more suited to riding through meandering fields than rattling down more rutted forest trails.

Blending road racing traits with off-road nous, it’s stable yet flickable thanks to a short rear-end and slightly slacker front. It’s appreciably stiff for road riding, but is probably most pleasing on better groomed unpaved surfaces.

Custom assembled, we can’t see any reason not to opt for the excellent Campagnolo 13-speed Ekar groupset and Shamal wheels as fitted to our bike.

Stanton Switchpath

  • Price £2,429 ​​(frame only)

A gravel machine made by a company known for its mountain bikes, the Switchpath offers pure fun. Promising to bridge the gap between a cross-country mountain bike and a gravel bike, it’s Ideal for bikepacking or rattling down off-road paths.

Unsurprisingly it’s capable in the rough stuff, thanks partly to a long wheelbase and chainstays, paired with a slack 70° head tube angle, all of which maximise stability. With the springiness you’d hope for from titanium, it’s happy barreling down choppy trails, while room for 700 × 47mm tyres (or up to 50mm with 650b) adds further cushioning.

We think mountain bikers will be at home without feeling like they’ve crossed into a different tribe. At the same time, road purists will find the Switchpath familiar enough while offering an invitation to explore new territories.
