Offering riders the opportunity to customize their tire choices, gravel bikes can be equipped with everything from knobby tires for shockingly good grip on rough terrain or semi-slick tires with textured edges for a blend of smooth riding on pavement and ample traction for cornering on loose gravel.

Charging your gravel e-bike is as simple as parking your ride next to a wall socket. Simply connect your power adapter to the frame, and you’ll be set with enough watt-hours to power you through your next ride in a matter of hours.
