There are few things more magical than riding alone in the woods, on a misty morning. No traffic. No pedestrians. Just you and the cool air in your lungs. Those are the moments the Grail CF SLX 8.0 Di2 not only is made for, but will make possible. As a concept, a bike that can ride over gravel and rough roads is nothing new, but the Grail CF SLX will offer you so much more than the ability to ride a road bike over rougher trails. It will give you a platform from which to explore your world comfortably and at a good clip, if you want. At 830 grams, this is a super light frame designed for all sorts of gravel adventures. The Sport Geometry will give you a slightly less aggressive position than you would have on our Inflite cyclocross-specific bike, which will allow you to strike out on endurance-oriented rides. But perhaps our biggest comfort and performance innovation revolves around the Grail’s new cockpit. No one likes to feel the chatter vibrating up our arms over rough roads, or to have vibrating hands at the end of a ride. With our innovative cockpit, comfort and control are enhanced with its shock absorbing qualities and ergonomic design. And to offer a similar level of vibration dampening in the hindquarters, the Canyon S15 VCLS 2.0 spring leaf seatpost with the integrated seat clamping system, which allows for additional vertical flex, adds to the plush ride over rough roads and gravel trails. The responsive handling offered by the carbon frame is enhanced by the choice of Reynolds Assault ATR Disc Carbon wheels, which come in 650b for the 2XS and XS frame size to ensure the best possible performance across all sizes. Combining these wheels with the tires Canyon helped develop with Schwalbe, the G-ONE Bite Gravel will become the gold standard for gravel grinders, and guarantee excellent traction off road, and low rolling resistance on tarmac. Eyelets for fender mounts will also make this a great option for mucky winter training sessions. The Shimano Ultegra Di2 groupset will top off the set up so that after you buy the Grail CF SLX 8.0 Di2, you will have the ultimate high-performance gravel grinder to enjoy and push your boundaries.

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.
