Devinci Hatchet Carbon Gravel Bike Review: Just Enough MTB Seasoning

It’s not the flashiest, definitely not the lightest, and certainly not loaded with as much tech as some of the fancier machines I’ve ridden in the last few months. But it’s nevertheless one of the most entertaining bikes I rode this year, with superb geometry, an excellent frame worthy of later upgrades, and a solid build kit that gets the job done if you’d rather not bother.

Review: Devinci Hatchet Carbon GRX LTD

Gravel bikes are all about versatility, and the Hatchet allows riders to have it their way. Want to run narrow, fast-rolling tires? Have at it. Need big knobby tires to mix it up on chunky gravel and singletrack? The Hatchet is willing and able.
