The true spirit of gravel is as elusive as it is prevalent. Writers and riders alike prattle on about searching for it, about finding it, about living it, but what actually is it? Is it bike-packing trips into the great wide unknown, searching for lost roads uncharted by the legions of Stravateers? Is it finding the best gravel bike, the best gravel wheelset, or the best gravel frame to try your luck at Unbound and smash the local KOMs? Where the road ends and gravel begins, we find answers to questions we didn’t know we had.
“Can I make it home?”
“Why didn’t I layer?”
“Will I freeze to death if I have to sleep under this oak?”
“Will a new gravel bike make me master of the backcountry?”

How Will the Best Gravel Bike Wheelset Really Improve My ride?
In the simplest of terms, a Terra gravel wheelset will be able to better seat a bigger tire due to its internal width, run at a lower pressure, and hold up to the demanding nature of gravel riding. Lower tire pressure on the dirt lets more rubber contact the ground, meaning more traction. More traction means less slippage on tough gradients, and more grip sending the downhill. The ultra-lightweight means your bike will come alive under acceleration and in the hills. Plus, Roval quality is so high the Terra CLX comes with a lifetime warranty and crash replacement. This gravel wheelset will not quit, and confidence in your equipment will have you worrying less and ripping more whether you’re deep in the backcountry or around the corner on your local dirt roads.
