A new chapter in the Kanzo story

With our Kanzo range we are trying to inspire cyclists to start their own bike adventure and discover new places are rediscover what they thought they already knew.

The story behind our Gravel bikes | #Kanzo

Ridley was into gravel bikes even before it was a big ‘thing’. When we launched our first-generation X-Trails we didn’t know the segment would be called ‘Gravel’, so we named it ‘All-Road’.
