  • High versatility of the frame platform

Canyon Grizl Review: Gravel Super Bike

Miles ArbourMay 2021

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...

Pros
  • 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

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

  • Gearing optimized for speed, not great for loaded climbs

  • 1 ¼” steerer
