New Cervélo Aspero is designed for fast gravel riding

Cervélo says that the Aspero is stripped down for speed rather than overbuilt for loads

Cervélo says that its new Aspero gravel bike is aimed at those who want to ride fast over unpaved roads.

Most gravel bikes come with the necessary bolts and bosses for hard-core bikepacking as well as faster rides. But the Aspero is designed for gravel racers and gravel enduro riders, with Cervélo saying it’s built firstly for speed, as well as control on variable surfaces.

He’s been cycling for a lot longer than that though and his travels by bike have taken him all around Europe and to California. He’s been riding gravel since before gravel bikes existed too, riding a cyclocross bike through the Chilterns and along the South Downs.
