Up until now, gravel paths have only ever known cargo designed bikes that can manage a fast canter at best. Not anymore. Cérvelo is revolutionising the gravel bike market ensuring that speed is not compromised on your quest to shred up the routes, no matter how big or small the adventure is. Meet the Áspero, inspired by road racing, built with KOM smashing stiffness for greater pedal transfer and tube shapes that have the perfect balance of weight and rugged durability whilst remaining aero. The Áspero comes into its own with its unique TrailMixer thru-axle design that blows the rest of the gravel bike competition away. The design allows you to adapt to your choice of wheel and tyre sizes from 700x42 - 650x49 without compromising on the riding experience, so you still benefit from the same great handling and personal best-crushing speed. So get ready to turn your lazy Sunday morning spins into fast-paced, adrenaline rushing, eye-watering experiences that'll find new limits for your love of riding.
When Speed Met The Gravel Path
Cérvelo has never been interested in designing bikes that struggle to keep up to speed with the rest of the group. Rather their heritage is firmly found in high-performance bikes that set the standard for design, technology and number of wins. That mindset has been taken to the gravel path, made for the modern rider that enjoys smashing it out on the route less travelled whilst still setting KOM's and personal bests. Inspired by the road, the Áspero frame is built with Tour de France peloton stiffness for greater power transfer and tube shapes that are as aero as they are lightweight and durable ... ready for anything.
Adaptability That Maintains Performance
Cérvelo has been keeping a keen eye on gravel bikes released over the past few years from other companies whilst designing their own. Whilst admiring their compliancy with different wheel and tyre sizes Cérvelo were aware that performance wasn't maintained with different combinations. The Áspero takes care of that through their TrailMixer thru-axle design that adjusts to two different positions, ensuring a uniform riding experience, no matter what choice of wheels or tyres you're going for.
