Gravel bike vs hardtail vs CX bike at Grinduro Scotland

What is the best gravel bike? We travelled north to find out

BikeRadar headed north to the Isle of Arran last month to take on one of the best gravel events of the year, Grinduro Scotland.

We didn’t just go to ride, though, we went to answer a burning question for the BikerRadar team — what is the best gravel bike?

With that in mind, Jack, Reuben and Joe raced three different bikes, a “traditional” gravel bike, a hardtail mountain bike and a monster ‘cross bike to find out which would come out on top.

Watch the video above to see how we and the bikes got on.
