In the US they have gravel bikes and miles upon miles of open, often-smooth dirt county roads. In the UK the ‘gravel riding’ term is often used but over here it seems to mean a mix of byways, bridleways full of holes and some easy MTB terrain with overgrown paths and quiet lanes to link it all up. Just like it always did. The designers of Pinnacle bikes have a long history of riding drop-bar bikes in places that they’d often ride a mountain bike the next day. The Pinnacle Arkose has been our go-to ‘do it all’ bike for some time and for 2017 it’s had its first revisions in a few years, as our expectations of what a cyclo-cross derived bike can do keeps expanding. The BB sits lower, the wheelbase is a tad longer and it’s got space for bigger tyres. The frame fit has a little more stack and works well with shorter rather than longer stems. It’s still a great bike on tarmac but it’s now a better bike off-road or over long mixed-terrain days.

The Arkose Alfine has been designed with the wet and muddy UK winter in mind. We have paired the Shimano Alfine hub with a microshift bar end shifter for a reliable, low maintenance gearing solution. TRP Hylex hydraulic disc brakes provide ultimate stopping power in all conditions, and the WTB Nano tyres offer all round versatility on and off-road.
