If you love the idea of being able to head out on a ride where you can feel fast racing through the city roads and secure on the isolated gravel forest paths, then the Grail CF SL 7.0 will be an ideal option for you. This is a bike tailor made for seriously fun excursions that are not bound by the quality of the roads. At just 1040 grams in a size medium, this is a lightweight carbon frame that still offers the durability you’ll be wanting when you do start taking it over some rougher roads and rooted trails. The Sport Geometry that offers a slightly shorter reach and higher stack than our Inflite cyclocross racing bike means that you can count on feeling comfortable on your long Gravel Fondos. Something else that will help you avoid that buzz up your arms is our innovative cockpit, that represents the core design feature of the Grail. Its optimised ergonomics make it super comfortable and it’s stiff as well, while the built-in flexibility helps the cockpit absorb all micro bumps inherent in a gravel ride, greatly reducing your accumulated fatigue throughout a ride. In addition, the use of the Canyon S23 VCLS 2.0 seat post with its spring leaf vertical compliance, and the integrated seat clamp that allows for more seatpost extension adding greater flex will keep your rear end from feeling numb after hours in the saddle. For the wheels, the aluminium DT Swiss C 1800 Disc offer a great balance between durability and lightweight performance so you can feel snappy on the climbs, but not fret about them when the trail turns a bit muddy. And the Schwalbe G-ONE Bite Gravel tires will offer the low rolling resistance that keeps them fun on the road, while ensuring a high level of grip for when the going gets rough. To ensure equally agile 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. Topping off this reliable build, the Shimano 105 groupset will give you prime performance while helping to keep the costs down. On a practical note, eyelets for fender mounts will give you the option of adding that extra wet weather protection. Ordering the Grail CF SL 7.0 will give you that extra inspiration never to miss a ride no matter the road conditions.

BIKE CLASSIFICATION: Bikes of this category are designed for riding on hard-surface roads where the wheels remain impermanent contact to the ground. These are in general road-racing bicycles with racing handlebars or straight handlebars, triathlon or time trial bicycles. The permissible maximum overall weight comprising rider, luggage and bicycle should not exceed 120 kg. Under certain circumstances, this permissible maximum weight can be further limited by the component manufacturers’ recommendations for use. Proven cyclocross bikes with racing handlebars and cantilever or disc brakes are a special case in this category. In addition, these bikes are also suitable for gravel paths and off-road trails where a short loss of tire contact with the ground due to small stairs or steps at a height of 15 to 20 cm can occur.
