Canyon launches alloy version of its Grail gravel bike

A lower priced gravel bike option from Canyon

Canyon has aimed to meet affordable price points for the Grail AL, to complement the carbon Grail CF range. So unlike the Grail CF with its shock-absorbing double-decker carbon bar, the new Grail AL has a conventional alloy bar.

The bar is specific to the Grail AL though, and comes in widths of up to 46cm, with a moderate flare to the drops. It’s designed for control and stability on off-road descents.

He’s been cycling for a lot longer than that though and his travels by bike have taken him all around Europe and to California. He’s been riding gravel since before gravel bikes existed too, riding a cyclocross bike through the Chilterns and along the South Downs.
