Grifn 105 GRC01As(M)
The Grifn is designed for riders looking for that one bike that can do it all. Whether it's competitive rides on smooth asphalt or commuting on crisp gravel paths, the Grifn is the all-road bike for all surfaces.
In the design, we combined the speed of a road bike with the comfort of a gravel bike. With a maximum tire clearance of 38mm (40mm with 1x drivetrain), you'll have traction on country roads, while 32mm allows you to assert your place in the peloton. Additionally, it's possible to connect fenders and a dynamo to the bike, ensuring you can go anywhere even in bad or dark weather.
The name Grifn refers to the mythical creature griffin, a mythological creature symbolizing dominion over heaven and earth. Therefore, the Grifn reigns over both asphalt and gravel. The geometry is tailored to the riding behavior that best suits the intended use of the bike and the terrain. There's ample comfort for long distances, and the bike is aggressive enough for competitive Gran Fondos.
In short, with the Grifn, we're essentially breaking the N+1 rule of bike ownership.
