Canyon Lifts the Curtains on New GRIZL Gravel Bike

Canyon has lifted the curtains on its new GRIZL gravel bike, which builds upon the German brand’s successful GRAIL model by offering greater tire clearance up to 50mm, a host of mounting points, a dedicated internal Di2 battery mount and revised geometry to create the “ultimate adventure bike”.

The GRIZL has a very similar geometry to the GRAIL, adopting the same combination of long reach, short stem and wide handlebars, providing excellent control for off-road riding. However, in order to accommodate the increased tire clearance, the wheelbase has been stretched by 8mm in a size medium, as well as slightly shorter stack height compared to Canyon’s Endurance model, making for a slightly lower, more aggressive riding position. 

Other notable features include a radically dropped driveside chainstay for the purposes of clearance, an optional front derailleur mount, a hidden seatpost clamp, dropper seatpost compatibility, a threaded bottom bracket, a 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inch steerer and the ability to accommodate both 650b and 700c wheels.

Canyon has also collaborated with Apidura to produce a dedicated set of lightweight bikepacking bags. Conspicuously absent however, is Canyon’s funky two-tier HOVER handlebar. 

The GRIZL is offered in six models, the GRIZL CF SL 6, GRIZL CF SL 7 (for women the GRIZL CF SL 7 WMN), GRIZL CF SL 8, GRIZL CF SL 8 1by, GRIZL CF SLX 8 Di2 and the flagship GRIZL SLX 8 1by, across seven sizes ranging from 2XS to 2XL.
