Press Release: Canyon Grizl gets all-new SRAM/RockShox Gravel Kits

Canyon Grizl Rockshox XPLR suspension review

The Grizl turned heads when it debuted a few months back—a remarkably verstatile gravel bike that can be raced or ridden to any adventure you have in mind. Today Canyon ups the ante with two new additions to the Grizl line. Both models feature Canyon’s premier CF SLX carbon frame and fork decked out in SRAM’s all-new electronic, wireless Force XPLR ETAP AXS gravel drivetrain. What’s more, one of those Grizls gets the front suspension treatment, courtesy of RockShox’s new Rudy Ultimate gravel suspension fork.

Both the $5,999 GRIZL CF SLX 8 ETAP and $6,499 GRIZL CF SLX 8 ETAP SUSPENSION models launch worldwide on August 10th. US customers can purchase the CF SLX 8 ETAP later this summer. The RockShox-equipped version will arrive later in the year.

SRAM’s Force XPLR drivetrain is electronic 1x shifting designed specifically for gravel riding. That means XPLR hits the sweet spot when it comes to gearing, with tight, evenly-spaced jumps on the higher gears (for seamless shifts on the road ) and bigger jumps on the low-end of the cassette, that let you tick off the miles on hilly, dirt rides.

The RockShox Rudy Ultimate is also designed specifically for gravel riding, The fork features all-new 30mm stanchions built around the Charger Race Day damper (RockShox‘s lightest damper ever) and RockShox‘s proven SoloAir spring. Rudy offers precise steering, full or short fender compatibility, and lets you ride faster and with more control when your gravel rides feature their fair share of washboard sections, rocks, and roots.
