The proliferation of gravel bikes as specialized entities means manufacturers have returned to building race-specific cyclocross bikes with tight geometry and gobs of mud clearance. The 1x drivetrain is ubiquitous in for its simplicity and lightness.
Finally, slick-looking internal cable routing is now the standard. Carbon fiber is the frame material for mid-range and top-end cyclocross bikes, and you can find quality rides with the material at pretty low prices now. Many brands continue to increase the bottom bracket drop how far below the axles the BB sits on their bikes, which can give them more versatile all-around handling.
Manufacturers like Jamis, Scott, and Van Dessel are putting out bikes with drops between 68mm and 70mm, although you can still find a traditionally higher BB and greater pedal clearance on the 56mm-drop Fuji Altamira CX 1. Bikes like the VonHof Steel ACX swap in steel frames with carbon forks to save money, but still offer a 1x drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes.
All of these bikes are race-ready for your local cyclocross event, though. Most of the bikes on this list have been ridden hard on the cyclocross course near our Pennsylvania office during a weekly training series, and many have been raced by our team of test editors. We rode fast and dry conditions, as well as nasty, slippery mud.
We pushed the bikes through hard, high-speed turns and tight hairpins, as well as slick off—cambers. And because these bikes are plain old fun to ride, we put in our fair share of road and gravel miles on these rigs. Often we swapped tires and other components to get a better understanding of each bike.
Then we evaluated them on performance, price, comfort, handling, value, and reliability to come up with this list of bikes that will best serve the needs of anyone looking to add a new cyclocross bike to their collection this year. Handling is quick and responsive, though not overly twitchy on straight-line blasts, and a high bottom bracket enabled us to use the steep geometry to pedal through corners at speed.
We challenge you to find a better value elsewhere. The Fuji Altamira CX 1. The Racers will appreciate the generous tire clearance from the full carbon fork on muddy days. The Jamis Supernova Elite is a compliant, short-wheelbase cyclocross bike that irons out bumps and nails corners with confidence. Like the wheelbase, the reach is short.Cart is empty.

Often people become too obsessed with the width of a race track, not the actual riding surface. Sure, this is quite different from 99 percent of your average gravel grinder, save those creek crossings like the ones found at races such as Dirty Kanza and the Almanzo For those times each lap you are off the bike, your gravel tubeless treads are just as good as the most supple tubular out there. Early season World Cup courses offer up conditions well-suited for gravel tires, like the dry and dusty Jingle Cross, Day 1.
Even the early-season World Cups in the U. Gravel tires are typically designed to roll fast on hardpacked surfaces and remain durable after miles of use.
Sound like your current conditions? However, many gravel tires have a sufficient side knob, not unlike a cyclocross tire.
Kenda Alluvium Gravel Tire. These tires in clincher form come in two different widths, with the larger-volume options marketed towards gravel. The Terreno Dry comes in a 40mm optionthe Tracer and older Trigger in 38mm, while Challenge swaps out the Chicane name for the Gravel Grinder label in 38 and 42mm options.
Adding a few mm in width to a cyclocross tire does not suddenly make a tire gravel-specific. In fact…. Higher volume tires allow for lower pressures and more travel bump absorption than the equivalent narrower tires. This is perhaps the biggest reason to reach for gravel tires on race day. High-volume tires help soak up the hits on the gravel roads of Kansas, so why not use them for bumpy cyclocross? Find yourself dreading the bumps of rock-hard early season races? A 40mm tubeless tire at low pressures can offer you lower rolling resistance as well as better burp and flat resistance than 33mm options and certainly more speed than hitting your rim.
Tire suppleness is impacted by several factors, mainly the materials used and air pressure.The defending champions were Mathieu van der Poel in the men's competition and Sanne Cant in the women's competition. Three of the five titles were secured at the penultimate round in France; with her fourth race victory, seven-time world champion Marianne Vos clinched her first World Cup title,  leaving the round points clear of her next closest competitor, compatriot Annemarie Worst.

The back-and-forth battle between Belgians Toon Aerts and Wout van Aert in the elite men standings was decided in the favour of Aerts — with points,  to van Aert's ; the two riders took three victories between them as van der Poel won all six races he started in the World Cup season,  finishing third overall.
