You can call it a gravel bike if you want. I’d say that with 700 x 40c tires the surface upon which you travel is almost irrelevant. Gravel, cobblestones, asphalt, wood chips, whatever you happen to find, just ride on it.
So there’s the 40mm-wide tires. You also get a lightweight aluminum frame and fork, Shimano Sora drivetrain components (that are very precise and reliable) and Tektro mechanical disc brakes (powerful, as well as precise and reliable). The drop bars are wide, so your steering control is really good on sketchy terrain. The saddle was pretty comfortable while test riding in jeans, so I’d have to imagine it’s fantastic when paired with cycling shorts.
So this is an all-condition road/gravel/commuter bike with good parts and a pretty reasonable price around $1200.
