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
