Canyon Grail CF SL 7 eTap review

Aaron Borrill

Fast, balanced and versatile on almost any terrain, is the Canyon Grail the most complete gravel bike on the market?

  • Super fast on all terrain

  • Exceptional ride quality

  • Well-balanced handling manners

  • Unique handlebar assembly works

  • Relatively lightweight

  • Well priced thanks to the direct-sell model

  • Colourway not the most inspiring

Canyon Grail CF SL 8 Di2 review

Paul Norman

Fast and well-specced gravel bike for milder off-road terrain

  • Fast ride

  • Quality components

  • Unique bars add comfort

  • Di2 groupset helps with shifting under load

  • Less compliance on the hoods than on the tops

  • Clearance and grip not that great with supplied tyres

  • Not the best long-hauler

Robyn Furtado

The Grail is a versatile and fun bike to ride, and an excellent choice if you want to go exploring off-road while also having a bike that can keep up on the tarmac

  • Well-priced

  • GRX groupset performs well

  • Good all-round handling on road, gravel and trails

  • Good spec across the board

  • No rack mounts

  • Slightly harsh handlebar and tape combo over rougher terrain

Canyon Grail:ON CF 7 review

Leon Poultney

An innovative carbon fibre frame, double-decker cockpit and the latest Bosch CX motor make this one enticing electric gravel offering.

  • It looks fantastic

  • Superb power delivery

  • Impressive battery life

  • Innovative features

  • Geometry awkward for some

  • Double-decker bars divisive

  • It’s heavy

  • Tricky to fine-tune fit

CANYON Grail:ON CF 8 Review

Price: $5799.00 | Model Year: 2022 | A high performance gravel ebike with carbon fiber frame, fork, and iconic double decker drop bar that introduces comfort and varied body positions. Sturdy 12mm thru-axles, tapered steer tube, and powerful Shimano ICE-Tech hydraulic disc brakes. This ebike is produced in seven frame sizes, but only four were in stock at the time of this review.

  • A high performance gravel ebike with carbon fiber frame, fork, and iconic double decker drop bar that introduces comfort and varied body positions. Sturdy 12mm thru-axles, tapered steer tube, and powerful Shimano ICE-Tech hydraulic disc brakes. This ebike is produced in seven frame sizes, but only four were in stock at the time of this review.

  • Available in multiple geographies, this ebike ships with a 4th generation Bosch Performance Line CX motor in Europe or Performance Line Speed motor in the US offering Class 3 28mph performance. Both motors are known for reliability, responsiveness, and power. Combined with the internally mounted Bosch PowerTube 500, the bike looks great and weight is positioned low and center for optimal handling.

  • Gravel specific Shimano GRX derailleur with one-way clutch to reduce chain bounce, a wide 11-42 tooth cassette for navigating varied terrain, and a narrow-wide chainring to reduce drops. Double bottle cage mounts are great, nice optional rear mudguard... but no front mudguard option from CANYON. Faster Bosch 4 amp standard charger included.

  • Direct sales only, and shipping costs $150 to $200 extra. Many sizes for the CF 8 were sold out and the upgraded eTap version had even less at the time of this review. Battery locking core and charge port are positioned low on the non-drivetrain side of the bike, tempting you to either lean the bike up or lay it down on the derailleur side... Basic Bosch Purion display is not compatible with Bosch smartphone apps and does not offer USB charging.
