Shimano launch 'World's first' gravel dedicated GRX groupset

Shimano GRX offers multiple drivetrain options including both mechanical and electronic shifting

Acknowledging the rapid rise of gravel and adventure riding, Shimano has unveiled not just one groupset but a whole new component family.

Coming under the new GRX moniker, the components have all been designed and built to cope with fast riding over loose terrain. Taking over from the older, cyclocross specific CX  groupsets, Shimano has tuned all aspects of GRX to suit a wider audience and with it has provided a perfect way of mixing and matching components to suit individual rider needs, including full compatibility with existing road and mountain bike groupset parts.
