What’s the difference between a gravel and cyclocross bike?

At first glance, it’s hard to tell the difference between a gravel bike (like the Grail) and a cyclocross bike (like the Inflite).

Gravel bikes are engineered for greater comfort and stability on extended rides over rough terrain.

In contrast, Cyclocross bikes are optimised for racing and designed for agility during hour-long all-out efforts on the cross course.

In terms of features, this means:

Gravel Bike Cyclocross Bike
Designed for comfort: high-volume tyres, Grail Cockpit, VCLS 2.0 leaf spring seatpost. Designed for speed and agility on tight, technical cross courses.
40 mm tyres: for more control and comfort on rough surfaces. 33 mm tyres compliant with UCI regulations for cyclocross racing.
Gravel Pro Geometry: a more relaxed riding position better suited to long rides. Cross Racing Geometry: the bike puts you in a more aggressive position.
An extended wheelbase for more stability on the rough. Short wheelbase for maximum agility and lively handling.
Wide-range gearing with at least a 1:1 bottom-end ratio for the steepest climbs. Race gearing, a tighter range with harder gears at the bottom end.
