Kona's range of Rove gravel bikes are available to suit any budget. Shimano gears, Tektro brakes and WTB tyres. 650b makes for a more comfy ride when on rougher ground. The added volume in the tyres increases traction too, making for better handling.
Here's what Kona says:
You may ask yourself, “What is this 650b semi-plump tire trend anyway?” Perhaps you’re gravel-curious, but not quite sure of how often you’ll really want to push your limits off the paved road. That, my friend, is what the Rove AL 650 is here for. It’s the road biker’s gravel/touring/do-it-all steed. It welcomes bigger tyre clearance and more comfortable geometry. It provides everything you need for a fast, comfortable ride and nothing you don’t. It’s the perfect bike for commuting, partaking in weekend warrior adventures, or diving deeper into longer tours.
