The Gravel AL really explodes into life where the road ends and the off-road adventure begins. It's designed for a new breed of rider, one that thrives on pushing bike and body to the limit on a bike designed to conquer the most challenging gravel terrain. Delivering a ride that is fast, light and agile, it bursts into life when tackling flowy singletrack or injecting some adrenaline-fuelled action into your off-road exploration. Taking inspiration from the geometry of MTB's, it features a progressive long and low geometry, combining a longer top tube with a shorter stem for enhanced handling and agility on loose, technical terrain.
is to love
Chalk off those rides that make up your bikepacking bucket list. Climb the highest mountain pass, discover forgotten dirt roads or navigate secluded forest trails. The Gravel AL’s terrain-taming ability and huge luggage capacity allows you to set free your adventurous spirit and embark on epic adventures into the wild beyond.
LONG & LOW
Designed for off-road riding and conquering extreme gravel tracks, a gravel optimised geometry offers a longer and lower frame for a more planted feel over technical terrain. An oversized 44mm headtube combined with a shorter stem and handlebars designed specifically for gravel provide greater confidence and control with the added practicality of barbag clearance. A LEVEL 44 headset in a choice of anodised colours is available to order in BikeBuilder and adds a splash of colour to any build.
CARRYALL MOUNTS &
Multiple frame mounts for even the most extreme of bike packing requirements. These include 2 sets of water bottle mounts inside the main triangle as well as extra sets underneath the downtube and along the top tube. Rear rack mounts plus carryall mounts on the front fork allow the attachment of oversize cages for items such as dry bags, ground mats and sleeping bags.
Whether you prefer your tyres wide and aggressive or narrow and fast, you can now have your cake and eat it. There’s ample clearance for 650bx47mm or 700Cx45mm tyres and a wide selection of tyres with multiple tread patterns available in BikeBuilder which offer the perfect solution for all types of gravel terrain.
Internal cable routing offers sleek, clean looks and keeps the cables protected from dirt and grime. This also extends to the possibility to upgrade to an internally routed dropper post to make the ride as wild as you like and compatibility with Shimano Di2 gear systems.
