CARBON GRAVEL BIKES
Our carbon gravels are truly special task machines. We decided to create a model that would satisfy the most demanding of riders. When planning the concept of this bicycle we knew that the Loca Bikes carbon gravel bike must be capable of going anywhere.
This model is fantastic for sporty riding in any terrain. If you like fast, gravel tracks and you often ride in places that regular gravel riders have problems with, our carbon gravel bike will be perfect for you.
At the heart of our carbon gravel bikes are lightweight but durable full-toray carbon fibre frames and full carbon forks. They undergo exhaustive fatigue tests in the factory to ensure very high durability. Thanks to their sturdy construction, we can assure you that they can take on rough terrain just as well as our aluminium or steel bikes! Both frame and fork are flat mount standard.
The fork steerer is tapered to ensure reliable handling and high stability, while the carbon fork and frame provide excellent shock absorption. Such combination makes our carbon gravel bikes fearless on any type of terrain! Stability and stiffness are also positively influenced by the thru axles of Polish manufacturer BB Components.

Our carbon gravel rides much less aggressively than our aluminium models. Longer chainstays, larger wheel base and longer top tube, combined with wide tyres will give you stability and comfort to ride even the toughest races.
We've designed this model to accommodate full mudguards, two bottle cages in the main frame triangle, one under the down tube, two on the fork and a direct mount stem bag. It'll suffice even for long bikepacking trips.
You can choose between a Shimano GRX RX 800 1x11, 2x11 or GRX RX400 2x10 drivetrain. Whether you prefer two chainrings at the front and a wider gear range, or the simplicity and stability of 1x11 drivetrains, you'll find something for yourself!
Our carbon gravel bikes feel best in tough terrain - the freedom to mould the frame material has allowed us to increase the tire clearance to as much as 700x50c. This size will allow you to ride in really extreme conditions.You also have the option to go tubeless instead of inner tubes. All our wheels are compatible with it!
Let us know what you need, and we'll be happy to talk about the solutions. Of course, in addition to the technical configuration, we can also do custom painting. More often than not, a color change or any reasonably simple design (i.e single color + lettering) is included in the price of the bike.
Climbs and problems with traction can keep us awake at night, right? Our cooperation with Garbaruk, a Krakow-based company, has allowed us to introduce two innovations to our gravel bikes:
The oval front chainring will give you a smooth crank rotation and improve grip on difficult terrain. The Garbaruk cassette and derailleur cage allow the installation of cassettes with a range up to 10-50t. Such a range will allow you to ride in all conditions. Together it will save more than 250 g!
For each gravel bike from Loca, you have a 5-year warranty on the frames and a 2-year warranty on all other parts except for consumable components that are prone to wear and tear, such as tires or inner tubes.
When you open the box containing your gravel bike from Loca, you will see that it is already 90% assembled. All you have to do is set the handlebars in the right position, install the front wheel, screw in the pedals, and get ready for the lap of honor that awaits.
