We awarded the Calibre Dark Peak, our Bargain Buy award on Boxing Day and with such a glowing review from our tester we also deemed it worthy of being our gravel bike of the year. It's a bike that is superb value and rides like something much more expensive!
The Dark peak has a solid spec that wouldn’t look amiss on a bike the next price bracket or two up. The 'gravel-cross-adventure-do-it-all bike' was reliable and fun to ride too, specced with branded components throughout and built around a double-butted 6061 aluminium frame with carbon forks. If you are looking at dipping your toes into the gravel bike market on a budget, then this is a great place to start.
You can find out more about the Calibre and why it won our Best Buy award here or check out the full review of the bike here.
Soon, we will be announcing our Bike of the Year so check back soon......
