An adventure or gravel bike is based on a regular road bike but is capable of so much more. Great for endurance road riding, these bikes are equally capable when you take them off-road. They really can do it all and are a superb choice for commuting, touring, going-off road onto gravel and forest trails and for family bike rides. We stock adventure and gravel bikes from Specialized, Orbea, Kinesis and gravel bike pioneers Salsa.


With speed, control, and confidence on any terrain, Diverge is the most capable gravel bike ever made. Switching from gravel at Mach 5 to rutted single track with ease, nothing helps you escape faster than Diverge.


The Specialized Diverge has received a comprehensive refresh for 2021. Smoother, better handling and more capable, the new Specialized Diverge is one of the best gravel bikes you can buy. It now features the latest-generation Future Shock 2.0 suspension on selected models, an update to more progressive long, slack and low geometry, and huge tyre clearances (47mm on 700C wheels and 53mm on 650B wheels), bringing the bike bang up to date.

From £1099


This thing called ‘gravel riding’ is still evolving. The Specialized Diverge EVO is designed to get aggressive, to push the boundaries of what's possible on a gravel bike. With flat bars and even more progressive geometry Specialized have significantly increased the reach, slackened the head tube and lowered the bottom bracket, to put you ‘in’ the bike for a super planted feeling. 

You can think of the EVO models as aggressive gravel bikes or super light mountain bikes.

From £1799
