The gravel race segment is here. With it comes the Grail CF SL 8.0 Di2, a dedicated gravel race rig that's ready for the sharp handling and speed over road and trail… but with the laid-back sensibilities ready for cruisy weekend jaunts with friends to the cafe. At 1,040 grams, this lightweight carbon frame offers a responsive ride while the slightly more relaxed Sport Geometry will help you stay in a comfortable position for the long rides. Getting handling right on a rough gravel road requires the proper emphasis being placed on the touch points, which is why our signature Grail Cockpit is a core tenet to the Grail. The Grail Cockpit was engineered to provide enough comfort absorbing vibrations while on dirt roads, in a geometry putting you in a comfortable riding position on the tops, and an aggressive, responsive position while in the drops. Similarly, the Canyon S15 VCLS 2.0 seat post features a unique leaf spring design that provides true vertical flex to the post, isolating the rider from unwanted rough-road vibrations. Though we've kept it light and simple by eliminating any mechanical dampening elements, you'll still feel much less fatigued at the end of a long ride. You'll find that sharp late-ride handling enhanced by Canyon's responsive One One Four SLX Disc carbon fork. The Grail CF SL 8.0 Di2 is set up the DT Swiss C 1800 Disc wheelset that are at home jumping obstacles, scrambling up steep climbs or cutting through mud. They're wrapped in ultra-versatile Schwalbe G-ONE Bite tires. To ensure equally nimble handling across all sizes, the 2XS and XS come with 650b wheels so no compromises needed to be made in terms of geometry for the small riders. Since quick, reliable shifting plays a huge role in successful gravel races, the Grail CF SL 8.0 Di2 is equipped with Shimano Ultegra Di2, giving you access to crisp, quick shifting. Shimano also provides the powerful disc stopping power. The Grail is finished with fender mounts bosses, helping you stay dry in even the most grim conditions. Whether you're pinned up with a number on race day or rolling out for a coffee ride, the Grail CF SL 8.0 Di2 will inspire you to explore road your own backroads.
