Our best-selling ABLE is our SRAM Force AXS build. It features the same wireless shifting and electronics platform as the cost-is-no-object Red AXS. But by foregoing Red’s costliest upgrades -- think ceramic bearings, extraordinary finishes, and featherweight hardware (the weight difference between groups is 300g total) -- you save a mint. The ABLE is a high-performance off-road machine that tilts more towards the “mountain skinny” side of the gravel segment. It prefers a big tire but keeps a short rear end - in fact, it’s the same as the ALLROAD at 420mm. This is achieved by the most striking feature on the bike - the elevated drive-side chainstay. Getting a chainstay this short with high tire volume is a packaging exercise because the chainring, chainstay, and tire all compete for space behind the bottom bracket. On mountain bikes this problem is addressed by widening the bottom bracket -- but that affects Q factor in a negative way. When we made the decision to make the ABLE 1X-specific it opened the design envelope and ultimately led to the decision to elevate the chainstay. By moving it up and out of the way we could make it extremely wide resulting in an incredibly responsive ride.
The best value in a Shimano-equipped Allied ABLE is the GRX 810 build. You save significant cost by foregoing electronic shifting and going with traditional mechanical shifting instead. Shimano is the industry leader for drivetrain reliability and in the tried-and-true mechanical shifting configuration, Shimano is unmatched for “set it and forget it” precision. The GRX design is based on Shimano’s best-selling Ultegra 8000 road system, but built in a burlier package to give it extra durability for gravel-specific usage. This build includes Industry Nine GRCX tubeless wheels and an Easton cockpit.
Explore gravel roads and the toughest terrain without giving up any road speed with 3T’s award-winning range of aero gravel bikes. The Exploro pioneered aerodynamics for gravel bikes, including even mud-covered knobby tire wind tunnel testing (much to the chagrin of the wind tunnel staff). The race-proven Exploro range gives you the speed you’re used to on asphalt and an additional advantage on wind-swept gravel tracks. Exploro Team is the Exploro with the new standard for affordable electronic drivetrains: SRAM Rival AXS XPLR 1x12 with 10-44T cassette.
Fast gravel, rough gravel, pavement or dirt. However you choose to roll, this bike does it all. A new composite frameset and adjustable wheelbase make it more capable than ever. With a lightweight Advanced-grade composite frame that's engineered for compliance, Revolt Advanced lets you push your limits on variable terrain. A composite fork eats up bumps, and the D-Fuse seatpost and handlebar absorb shocks and vibrations. A flip chip on the rear dropout adjusts wheelbase and tire clearance, and you can choose the included D-Fuse seatpost for maximum compliance or a 30.9mm round or dropper post. Details including a smart mount system for racks and accessories give you a head start on any gravel riding mission.
A sweet beast designed for chasing good times, the Gorilla Monsoon builds on All-City's proven cross geometry to handle camping, dirt touring, and exploring the unknown. Built around 27.5 x 2.4" tires and offered in seven frame sizes, it comfortably accommodates our smallest and tallest riders for long days in the saddle. Features like stealth dropper post routing and full touring mounts round out this elegantly styled steed.
Journeyer Sora 700c has everything you need for dipping into the world of dirt-road rides. The all-new aluminum frame and our Waxwing carbon fork deliver comfort and poise on rough roads but are just as enjoyable on the pavement and paths around town. You’ll find mounts for fenders, racks, Anything Cages, and other ride accessories, making it easy to carry whatever you need for your gravel ride, commute, or bikepacking outing. The 700c wheels and 38 mm tires roll surely and speedily over asphalt, dirt, and gravel for lacing together all-road adventures that don’t have to end where the pavement does. Shimano’s Sora 2 x 9-speed components have plenty of gear range on tap for whatever your ride goals may be. We believe Journeyer Sora 700c has all the best adventure bike features in an accessible package. Time to start making plans.
Rangefinder Advent X 29 is not just any hardtail trail bike—it’s your trusty trail companion, your partner for all things dirt. Its stable trail geometry is reassuring on many types of terrain.

MicroSHIFT’s Advent X drivetrain offers smooth shifting action and evenly spaced gearing for predictable performance on the trail.
