The Panaracer Gravel Gallery will feature a range of the industry's best and newest gravel bicycles. Here's a selection of nine of the bikes on show, ranging from race-oriented carbon rockets to classic titanium - and don't miss the stunning custom-painted Italian job from Titici...
Tickets to Rouleur Classic are availble now priced from £35 at www.rouleurclassic.cc.
Cervélo Áspero Gravel
Inspired and designed from Cervélo's road racing range, the Áspero is designed with stiffness front of mind to ensure efficient power transfer from rider to bike. A lightweight carbon frame and fork design is coupled with an aerodynamic profile to ensure both fast acceleration and lasting straight line speed.
Look 765 Gravel RS
With decades of heritage on the road, French manufacturer Look enters the gravel market with the 765 Gravel, its first dirt and gravel adventure bicycle. Featuring a dropped chainstay design which has almost become synonymous with new gravel frames, the 765 goes a long way to bringing the customary sleek French design from Look's road range over to this exciting adventure bicycle.
Argon 18 Dark Matter
The choice to take inspiration from frame geometry more often seen on road bikes has made the Dark Matter a real speed machine for gravel roads and beyond. Retaining the versatility to fit large tyres if desired, it loses none of its responsiveness or acceleration, providing immense stability as it scythes through the myriad of terrain it encounters when adventuring upon roads less known.
SCOTT Addict Gravel 10
Faithful to its ambitions to be super fast and versatile for any weather and terrain, the SCOTT Addict Gravel 10 is a lightweight HMX Carbon Fiber frame which provides compliance and great power transfer, equipped with some serious Schwalbe G-One tires and a Shimano Di2 drivetrain to make any adventure possible. If the aforementioned was not enough to raise an eyebrow, then the iridescent paint job certainly will, whether thundering through woods or surfing gravel trails.
The idea behind Pinarello's Grevil is to facilitate unparalleled exploration and adventure upon two wheels, on whichever type of surface you choose. Using TORAYCA T1100G UD with Nanoalloy Technology Aerospace carbon fiber, as applied in aviation, provides lightness to ease the rigours of the toughest rides. With convincing rigidity and comfort, it is an attractive offer to spend all day in the saddle upon unknown roads.
Ribble CGR Ti
In contrast to those eager to build the fastest machine possible on any road, the Ribble CGR Ti is a more relaxed offering which encourages the sort of exploration which is about soaking in your surroundings, rather than a blur of scenery. A titanium frame means this bike is highly responsive and soaks up the myriad of road vibrations your next adventure might encounter.

Titici Gravel - Luca Di Maggio x Titici
The collaboration with Luca Di Maggio has produced this stunning paint job for Titici's premium Flexy F-GR02, a gravel build which possesses P.A.T technology to lessen vibrations by nearly 20%. Possessing the versatility for 700c or 650b wheels, this bike not only catches the eye for its looks thanks to Luca Di Maggio's artistry, but also its robust performance across tarmac as well as the varied terrain of trails and tracks.
Cannondale Topstone Carbon
A unique creation which features both 30mm worth of suspension (without the weight or complexity of shocks or linkages) and dropper seat post ready technology; the Cannondale Topstone Carbon is equipped to handle everything. Great tyre clearance, endurance focus geometry and plenty of possibilities for carrying everything required for your next big day out on the bike.
Wilier's leading gravel bicycle, the Jena was introduced to the range in 2019 to appease the growing appetite of those searching for more adventure off road. Built to be light, reactive, and easy to manage with a racing geometry, this bicycle is able to hold its own over the changing conditions gravel riding presents.
