The Bossi Grit SS

We are proud to unveil the Grit SS, an innovative gravel frameset that sets new standards in its class. Leveraging advanced manufacturing processes, including die-cast headtubes, 3D-printed yokes, 3D-printed dropouts, and hydroformed tube profiles, the Grit SS achieves a perfect balance of enhanced aerodynamics, reduced weight, and unwavering strength.”

Bossi Grit SS

Inspired by the design principles of our flagship Strada SS road model, the Grit SS emerges as a faster and more focused counterpart to our adventure-oriented Grit SX. With a lighter, more aerodynamic frameset and tighter geometry, the Grit SS elevates its performance both on the road and off. Responding to rider demands: The Grit SS – our inaugural fully-integrated gravel frame.”

Full Integration

Innovative Manufacture

For the first time, we utilise a combination of die-casting and 3D printing to craft the intricate forms featured on the Grit SS. The flexibility of 3D printing enables size-specific geometry on smaller components, while die-casting is employed for the headtube to ensure a superior finish and aesthetic consistency with extruded tubes.”

Full Integration

Breaking new ground for Bossi gravel designs, the Grit SS is fully integrated and designed exclusively for electronic groupsets. The 1.5” headtube is compatible with most integrated cockpits on the market, as well as our own offerings.”

Weight Reduction

durability. With a weight reduction of 150g (against our Grit SX), a size 54 frame now weighs in at 1.75kg. Rigorously tested to meet ISO4210 impact and fatigue standards, the Grit SS is backed by our 50-year global warranty.”


Race-refined without compromise, the Grit SS maintains generous 700x50c tyre clearance, 3x bidon mounts, top tube mounts, fork rack mounts, rear rack mounts, and full fender mounts, catering to all your racing and adventure needs. The conventional 27.2mm seat post standard ensures compatibility with sprung, dual-pivot, and dropper seat posts.”

Derived from our popular Grit SX, the Grit SS features refined geometry for a tighter, more responsive ride. A shortened chain stay, courtesy of the new 3D printed yoke, increases chainring clearance without compromising tyre clearance. Adjustments to the bottom bracket drop and stack height enhance responsiveness and agility while maintaining all-day practicality and versatility, values at the heart of all Bossi designs.”
