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.
Each bike is painted and assembled to individual specifications. This means that you are the one who decides on your machine. You can participate in the building process with us and design the bike of your dreams!
Do you want the specifics? The technical merits? No sweat. The heart of all our gravel bikes are light but durable frames made of AL7020 aluminium (which is lighter and stronger than the popular 6061 T6 alloy) and full carbon forks. Both frame and fork are designed for the flat mount standard.
Our frames are welded in Poland. We use high quality materials - the tubes come from Germany and have EN certificates, while the head tubes, dropouts and bottom bracket shells are made in-house in Gliwice. The design, development, and painting of frames are also local processes.
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.
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 Shimano GRX GRX RX820 2x12, 1x12 or RX400 2x10 groupset.
Need an absolutely no-compromise drivetrain? We also have the Shimano GRX Di2 and SRAM AXS electronic groups available. They ensure perfect derailleur performance in all conditions and on top of that SRAM AXS is wireless!
We can also talk about wheels. Do you like giving it your all on the road? Go for 700x35c or 700x38c wheels. Do you prefer rolling on gravel or adventuring off the beaten path with friends? Go for 650x47c or 700x43c. You can also opt for
a tubeless system instead of inner tubes.
For each gravel bike from Loca, you have a 5-year warranty on the frames and
a 2-year warranty on other parts.
