The bike season in the bike parks has already started. The bike trails are also well frequented, especially at the weekends. So it's high time to get the perfect companion for your next tour. We have summarised for you which 3 bikes are particularly popular this summer.
Gravel bike: The all-rounder among bikes
If you're looking for a bike, you can't go past gravel bikes. Gravel bikes are a mixture of cyclocross bikes and road bikes. Gravel means gravel in German. Gravel bikes were developed primarily for surfaces away from asphalt . Fast and easy riding is therefore guaranteed even on long rides. The frame of gravel bikes can be made of steel, aluminium, but also carbon or titanium. The seating position is more upright due to the frame geometry. This relieves the hands, especially on long rides.
E-mountain bike for long tours
It's not just gravel bikes that are booming right now. E-mountain bikes are also more popular than ever before. Among other things, the bikes are perfect for longer tours after work. They can be used both off-road and on leisurely tours. This makes e-mountain bikes suitable not only for experienced endurance athletes, but also for beginners.
Fast downhill with enduro bikes
Enduro bikes are the perfect companions for all outdoor lovers who prefer speed and technical trails. Thanks to their downhill-oriented geometry, they are particularly suitable for downhill riding. Due to the heavier tyres, enduro bikes have a higher weight than, for example, all-mountain bikes. Uphill is therefore more demanding than downhill. Enduro bikes have become indispensable in the bike park.
