BMC has added front suspension to its ‘unrestricted’ gravel bike range, launching the URS LT with a coil-sprung system in the steerer.

The new LT is the ‘long travel’ option, designed for more adventurous gravel pursuits; at 20mm of travel we’re sure our mountain biking friends will be raising an eyebrow, but then the 20mm made available via ‘MTT suspension fork’ is longer in travel than the 0mm of a rigid fork.
