Thought gravel riding was slow, a bit boring and only for those carrying cargo? Ha! Think again. Cérvelo hasn't just redefined the term "gravel bike" but they have launched it into the future with a frame that's inspired by the road but is all about the beaten path. Cérvelo calls it the Áspero which is Spanish for rough and that's exactly what it is built for. The frame finds the perfect blend between PB setting weight and durability that can handle anything the trail has to throw at it, whilst also remaining true to Cérvelo's aero heritage to take appropriate care of any off-road KOM's. However, the Áspero comes into its own thanks to the cleverly engineered TrailMixer thru-axle design. It ensures that no matter what wheel and tyre size you feel is appropriate for the local routes you still benefit from the same great handling and confidence-inspiring feel. Finally, Shimano's gravel-specific GRX groupset ensures the full potential of the Áspero is reached, with smooth shifting gears that make light work of big miles in the saddle. So get ready to find new limits, on new routes, in new ways and make riding on gravel really, really fast!
Explore The Trail And Your Limits
Cérvelo's Áspero is not simply designed for pottering around the family off-road cycle routes whilst enjoying some friendly conversation whilst you catch up with an old friend. The Áspero redefines riding on the beaten path, as rocks fly up behind your rear tyre and any sight of you is lost in a cloud of gravel dust. Cérvelo has taken their road race-winning frame and stripped it down, building it back up again to outperform any traditional gravel bike made before it. The frame finds the perfect blend of hill climb smashing weight advantages and rugged durability to deal with anything that off-road cycling has to throw at it. It also remains aero, as is Cérvelo's heritage, to ensure any KOM segments out the way of the road are appropriately dealt with.
TrailMixer Thru-Axle Design
Cérvelo loves the adaptability of the traditional gravel bike, quickly switching from the fast-paced 700c road wheel to the beefy 650b mountain bike wheel. However, Cérvelo is not so keen on the handling benefits that you miss out on when you make such a change. This is why they have engineered a unique thru-axle that adapts to your choice of wheel and tyre size. They call it the TrailMixer and it ensures that no matter what setup you think is best for the day ahead, the bike still handles as confidently and puts the same smile across your face.
