KOBLENZ, 6 DECEMBER 2021 | EMBARGO UNTIL 09 DECEMBER 2021, 11:00 CET — One of the most iconic bikes to land on the scene in recent years is back – the Canyon Grail. The Grail is the German brand’s answer to the ultimate all-seasons, all-surfaces, all-conditions speed machine. Stable on the rough, fast on the smooth, the 2022 Grail blurs lines between on-road speed and off-road control better than ever thanks to fresh specs and stunning new artworks applied to tried-and-true concepts. Throw in an extended range of accessories, like full coverage fenders, lighting options and storage solutions, this one bike transitions seamlessly between being a dependable winter mile muncher and a swift summer escapist ready to take you off the beaten track. The Holy Grail? This may well be it…

The 2022 Grail portfolio is headlined by the superlight, high-flying Grail CF SLX, built around an 830 g carbon frame and complete builds tipping the scales at just over 8 kg. Beneath this, the Grail CF SL delivers a strong mid-range offering with an array of models at competitive pricepoints. Both carbon platforms feature the iconic Double Decker Bar – its unique construction enhancing ergonomics and control via defined hand positions and vibration reduction. The latest, fastest-rolling 40 mm Schwalbe G-One R rubber features exclusively on all carbon models, wrapped around DT Swiss gravel rims with their strong reputation for smooth performance, lasting reliability, and easy tubeless setup.

The hugely popular, critically acclaimed Grail AL also returns to the fold. Electronic shifting makes its first appearance on this platform with SRAM’s new Rival XPLR eTap AXS groupset, while the Grail 7 AW (denoting all-weather) is perfect for winter warriors, with powerful Lupine front and rear lights, plus fenders, included as standard.

Coinciding with the new-look Grail, Canyon has also expanded its range of LOAD products. A new Handlebar Bag offers two litres of waterproof storage with multiple mounting options for both Double Decker and standard cockpits. What’s more, the new Frame Bag fits seamlessly in the front triangle of Grail CF models providing space for riding essentials, tucked away from the wind.
