GRAVEL BIKES

Our gravel bikes are machines on which you can successfully overcome your limits and reach your full potential. Amateur racing? Bikepacking across mixed terrain? Intensive, everyday riding in all conditions? Breaking records on Strava and scorching it on the road? They all fit the bill.

We spent months working on our gravel bikes. After numerous tweaks and tests, we can safely say that you can’t fault them. Our gravel bikes are hardy, light and versatile. And above all, they deliver pure riding pleasure.

Do you want the specifics? The technical merits? No sweat. The heart of all our gravel bikes are light but durable frames made of triple-butted AL6061 T6 aluminum combined with carbon forks (steerer tube + legs).

The tapered headtube guarantees reliable handling and high stability when riding, and the carbon fork provides good shock absorption.

Stability and stiffness are also positively influenced by the thru axles of Polish manufacturer BB Components. Thanks to them, you can install the wheels faster, without having to adjust the brake pads.

The key premise when designing our gravel bikes was to combine sportiness with high versatility. The frame geometry provides excellent maneuverability and control, allows for comfortable, fast riding over long distances. At the same time, we left clearance for 700x43c tires and provided the option to mount full-length fenders, a front rack on the fork, a sturdy rear rack and two bottle cages.

In the world of gravel bike lovers there are fans of 1x11 and 2x11 drivetrains. But why argue?

We decided to accommodate both, and that's why with our gravel bikes, you can opt for a Sram Apex 1x11, Shimano GRX RX 600 1x11 / 2x11, GRX RX400 2x10, Shimano 105 2x11 or Shimano Tiagra 2x10. groupset. You can also choose between hydraulic or mechanical disc brakes. What's more, as you probably already know, Loca is not a big bike company, but a small manufacturer. We build bikes because we love them. Would you prefer the SRAM Rival, Ultegra, or something else? Let's talk!

We can also talk about wheels. Do you like giving it your all on the road? Go for 700x43c or 700x38c wheels. Do you prefer rolling on gravel or adventuring off the beaten path with friends? Go for 650x47c. You can also opt for a tubeless system instead of inner tubes.

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.

For each gravel bike from Loca, you have a 5-year warranty on the frames and a one-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.
