Do you fancy gravel? Do you want to drive more than just gravel? There’s a new steed in town to see.
Canyon’s 2018 Grail Model gravel bike was a staple for the brand for a while. But there are quite a few riders out there, and the Grail may not suit all of them. Today the German bicycle manufacturer offers one new model and construction options For any gravel, the grail will not attack.
Get to know the Grizl.
The Grizl from Canyon offers larger tires, a new drop bar design, more mounting options for bags and some new, gravel-specific components. Canyon calls it the “ultimate gravel bike that does everything, can go anywhere, and could ever need”.
Basically, the rougher the gravel, the better.
Canyon Grizl properties
- Canyon Gravel Pro geometry
- Suspension fork compatible
- Dropper Post compatible
- Tubeless finished with 45 mm rubber tires standard / spacing for 50 mm
- Two fork mounts, a top tube mount and a third bottle cage mount under the down tube

“In the name of maximum versatility and all-round capability,” says Canyon, the Grizl is also equipped with a number of advanced components and functions that have never been seen on a Canyon gravel bike. There’s internal routing for full dropper post compatibility, and the Grizl is both 1x and 2x compatible.
Another adaptation, tailored for gravel riders with a harder core, are the new bike packs from Canyon, which are tailored to the Grizl. The Apidura x Canyon Packs are lightweight, waterproof, cut to size for gravel and are available now.
