The Canyon Grizl 7 Suspension is a reasonably priced, top-rated gravel bike with an aluminum-frame. It shines on the descents and over rough surfaces...

Canyon Grizl CF SL 8 1BY gravel bike review

Jul 2021 · Guy Kesteven

Grizl is the new adventure bike in Canyon’s gravel range, but how does it compare to the racier Grail and drop-bar all-rounders from other brands?

Highs
  • Excellent all-round balance

  • Impressively rapid and power happy

  • Rough smoothing ride

  • Stable without being dull

  • Super durable spec

  • Great direct delivery bike value

Lows
  • Potentially troublesome ThreadFit PF86 BB

  • Comes in a box, not from a shop

  • Luggage prices are higher due to Brexit

Canyon Grizl Review: Gravel Super Bike

May 2021 · Miles Arbour

Released today, the Canyon Grizl is a new drop-bar gravel bike with clearance for 700 x 50mm tires, lots of mounting points, and features that cater to long days in the saddle. We’ve been testing out the Grizl CF SL 8 build prior to today’s release, equipped with a set of co-branded Apidura bags, to discover what it does best. Find our review here...

Highs
  • Impressively smooth thanks to high-quality carbon and VCLS seatpost

  • Lightweight and fast

  • Fork mounts, downtube mounts, and lots of frame bag space

  • Apidura collab bags are a nice touch

  • Huge size range from XXS to XXL

Lows
  • Low stack and long reach won’t be for everyone

  • Gearing optimized for speed, not great for loaded climbs

  • 1 ¼” steerer
