Bikes are back, baby.

It could be the multiple Tour de France winners, the swathe of Olympic cycling gold medals, or the renewed interest in our health, but pedal power is back on the menu in a big way – and now it’s time to take the two-wheeler off road.

Enter: the Canyon Grail.

Billed as the brand’s first gravel bike, you’re looking at one of the most versatile all-terrain options available right now – whether you’re slooshing through muddy trails, rocky inclines or looping around Boxhill.

Coming in at just 8.45kg on the scales, this is a nimble bike that can brush off the rigours of the off-road.

Canyon has partnered with Schwalbe to kit out the Grail with 40mm G-One Bite tyres

On the steering front, Canyon has opted for a steep 72.5-degree head angle in order to ensure handling is precise with plenty of feedback regardless of the ground.

Speaking of which, Canyon has partnered with Schwalbe to kit out the Grail with 40mm G-One Bite tyres – some of the best for gravel performance.

You’re looking at one of the fastest, most fun two-wheelers you’ll sit on this year – a bike with a can-do attitude.
