Gravel Bike Vs Cyclo-Cross Bike | What Really Is The Difference?

The cyclocross bike is the original off road, drop bar bike. A versatile bike that can ride on road, and off. Back in the day, they had knobbly 25mm wide tyres, powerful cantilever brakes, which were so ineffective that a cross race was about 40% running. As you can see, they have evolved.

In association with Canyon.

They have wider tyres than road bikes, for more grip and more comfort, they are a little taller to give greater pedal clearance for when riding off road, they have slightly more stable handling so that you can keep control when sliding around in slippery or lose conditions.

But now, there’s a new off road bike in town. The gravel bike. Wider, grippier tyres than a road bike, geometry that makes it easier, safer and more fun to ride in lose conditions, more comfort, either from the frame, or the components on them...

Hang on a minute, wider tyres, more stable geometry, longer wheelbase, comfortable… That’s what mine’s got. You could be forgiven for wondering then, just what on earth the difference between a cross bike and a gravel bike really is.

Canyon have kindly lent us an example of each, their Inflite cross bike and their Grail gravel bike, so we can really get to grips with this issue, one that’s really important to a lot of you out there looking at their next bike purchase. It’s going to be tough Si, riding these two brand new bikes on the finest dirt that the Dolomites has to offer isn’t it? Well it might be for you, given that off road is pretty new territory for you right? Yes, I would describe myself as thoroughly green. It will be particularly interesting to get our two different perspectives on it. Mine, fresh, yours, more experienced.

How To Ride Cyclocross - An Introduction For Road Riders | Matt Does Cyclo-Cross Ep. 1

Cyclocross is great fun and Tom and Simon love riding CX, so we thought we'd show Matt how to ride 'cross and enter him into a race!
Follow GCN on YouTube:

To get Matt off to a flying start we ran through the changes that you need to make from your normal road riding position and bike set up to get him ready for cyclocross. This includes looking at bar and stem adjustments, tyre pressures and saddle height.

We also run through basic cyclocross technique to make sure that Matt will be able to keep his bike moving as fast as possible downhill, on the flat and whilst climbing.

Racing The World's Toughest Cyclo-Cross Race | GCN Presenter Challenge

You know it's going to be a tough race when a survival bag is an mandatory item. Welcome to the Three Peaks Cyclo-Cross, undisputedly the hardest cyclocross race Great Britain, and arguably in the world. But why so brutal? You'll have to take it from Si and Oscar...

Not for the feint hearted, the gruellingly steep climbs and technical descents of the 3 Peaks route must be completed on a bike with drop handlebars and tyres no wider than 35mm - certainly not the best tool for the job.

True to name, the 38 mile/61 kilometre route takes in the three summits of Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen Y Ghent and totals 5000ft climbing en route. Set in the stunning - yet barren - Yorkshire Dales, the 3 Peaks Cyclo-Cross race is the ultimate test of fitness, skill and grit. Do you dare take it on?

2019 UCI Cyclocross World Championships Bogense Denmark

One lap with USA Cyclocross National Champion, Stephen Hyde, on the 2019 course. It is very frozen in this video. I don't know how much that will change as the temps are scheduled to drop tomorrow but it will warm up some over the weekend. The straights are fast and the corners are slick and a bit unpredictable.

Mountain Bike Vs Cyclocross Bike – What's Really The Difference?!

Cyclocross bike or mountain bike hardtail... What's the difference on MTB trails and should you buy a cyclo-cross bike?

Subscribe to GMBN:
Get exclusive GMBN gear in the GMBN store!

As mountain bikers and cyclists, what's the ultimate bike for a winter blast?

Neil loves cyclocross, and he loves mountain biking. Scott has never ridden a cyclocross bike but he does have a very nice Canyon mtb hardtail.

We set up a test loop featuring a few of our local mountain bike trails. It was a varied loop and meant to push the cyclocross bike to its limits.

So, what would come out on top: mountain bike and baggies or cyclocross bike and lycra?

And, where is a cyclocross (dare we say it) better than a mountain bike and vice versa?

Neil and Scott have a blast on their bikes and find out.

Are you a mountain biker who rides cyclocross? A road cyclist who rides a mountain bikes? Chip in with your thoughts on this debate down in the comments, hit LIKE, hit SHARE and join the GMBN Notification Squad!
