Aluminium, Carbon or Titanium?
Find the right gravel bike in the right material

It can be difficult to know which frame material is right for you. Principia gravel bikes are available in 3 different material types: aluminium, carbon and titanium. All 3 frame materials have their advantages. We have made it easy to understand. Read more below.






Durable, versatile and affordable

Good durability

With an aluminium frame, you get long durability, as aluminium is a strong material, which can resist blows on variable terrain, which a gravel bike is exposed to.

Great versatility

Aluminum is perfect for mixed driving on varying terrain such as country roads and gravel. Expect high comfort and performance.

Perfect first gravel bike 

An aluminium gravel bike is typically very affordable in terms of equipment and performance. This makes it a perfect bike for the new gravel rider. You don't have to compromise on design or performance with an aluminium gravel bike.


Why should you choose aluminium

  • Affordable price
  • Strong material
  • Lighter than steel
  • Less maintenance




Light, aerodynamic and high performance

All the right elements

Vælger du en gravelcykel i carbon får du en ultralet ramme og stiv ramme ift. sin vægt. Det betyder, at du kan accellerere hurtigt og effektivt - uanset terræn og forhold.

Uncompromised performance

The carbon material gives the freedom to design and shape a frame after specific measurements. This means that the frame can be easily strengthened and stabilized where it matters. This ensures an ideal combination of performance and durability.

Aerodynamic wonder

On a carbon frame, you won't find any welding, as you do on, for example, steel and aluminium. This means that every part of the frame can be optimized to deliver superior aerodynamics.



Why should you choose carbon

  • Low weight
  • High stiffness
  • Fantastic aerodynamics
  • Shock absorbing
  • Durable




Light, strong and durable

High strength-to-weight ratio

With a titanium frame, you get incredibly high strength and durability. Despite the strength, the weight is still low, and you can easily maintain a high speed. The strength of the frame is on par with a steel frame, but it is significantly lighter.

Ultra-long durability - No corrosion

titanium frame lasts forever. As the material has close to no fatigue, the frame can last for a long time, even if it is exposed to high stress, while blasting down the gravel path.

Naturally shock absorbing

A titanium frame has a natural shock-absorbing effect, whether you're driving on country roads or in the woods. Since the frame has an excellent ability to absorb bumps, it means that it will help reduce your body's fatigue and make your ride more comfortable.


Why should you choose titanium

  • Durable and easy to repair
  • Very strong material
  • Shock absorbing
  • Exclusive looking design
