E-gravel is about escaping your routine. Escaping the city. Using motorised support to get a quick adventure fix, regardless of time constraints. Getting out and taking the fastest line to the highest point. And now, the new Canyon Grail:0N e-gravel bike makes it all possible for all riders — by taking the iconic design of the Canyon Grail bike and applying it to the game-changing world of e-gravel.
Welcome to Electrified Escape.

The non-motorised Grail CF has already achieved iconic status in the gravel scene: and the Grail:0N inherits many of the signature features that made it so popular. The innovative comfort concept, comprising the revolutionary Double Decker cockpit, flexible VCLS 2.0 seatposts, lightweight frame, and high-volume tyres. The low, sub-16 kg weight. The wide range of sizes (2XS-2XL). And the clean, dynamic, Red Dot Design Award-winning Canyon form.
From first glance, the Grail:0N's serious gravel credentials are clear to see.

But the Grail:0N is much more than simply a Grail with a motor. It's a bike designed from the ground up to face the specific demands of e-gravel riding — with a reworked geometry, gravel-specific components, and range of new and unique design features. Firstly, a longer wheelbase and wider 50 mm tyres provide the extra stability required when using the motor to surge over uneven terrain. Furthermore, a more relaxed riding position increases comfort. And all Grail:0N bikes also feature e-gravel-specific HG-series DT Swiss wheels as well as one-by shifting.

In terms of motorised support, the Grail:0N is built around the fourth-generation Bosch Performance Line CX Gent drive system — a punchy, powerful, high-torque motor originally developed for the world of e-mountain biking. With four support levels — Eco, Tour, Sport, and Turbo — riders can switch between sustained support over the long haul and short, surging support over steep climbs. There's a huge 85 Nm of torque on tap and the system provides support of up to 340% of the rider's own power. Motor support is progressive in the highest settings, simply meaning; the more you put in, the more you'll get out.

The Grail:0N CF will be available from Wednesday 22 July on canyon.com. The range will initially comprise four Grail:0N models, beginning with the Grail:0N CF — also available as a WMN-spec model featuring women's-specific contact points. Rounding out the range are the Grail:0N CF, and the flagship Grail:0N CF 8 with electronic SRAM Force AXS eTap shifting, carbon wheels and a weight of only 15.9 kg. (size M)
