Progressive Gravel

Performance-oriented gravel bikes with longer frame proportions that are typically paired with a shorter stem, compact drop bars, or even flat bars.

Typical attributes include:

  • Longer reach and front-center than traditional All-Road/Gravel bikes
  • Steeper seat tube angles than than traditional All-Road/Gravel bikes
  • Slack head tube angles, often approaching traditional mountain bike geometry
  • Wider, gravel-oriented tires, typically from 40mm-2 in
  • More likely to use 700c since toe overlap is less of an issue due to longer front-center
Primary Bar Type: Drop Bar
