Cairn launches two new do-it-all electric bikes

The brand says these bikes 'defy categorisation', but we'd call them gravel e-bikes

Cairn Cycles has launched two new bikes - a drop bar and flat bar 'BRAVEe'.

The UK offshoot from The Rider Firm, which also owns Hunt wheels, says that the BRAVe collection 'defies categorisation', and blends elements of gravel, rigid mountain bike, monster cross, touring and 'gravduro' bikes (that last one is a new one on us). Whilst it seems that this is a bike built with the goal of not fitting into a genre if we were to place it within one we'd comfortably call it a gravel bike, albeit one taking more inspiration from trail focused tech then the tarmac side.
