About Grifn RS

The Grifn RS features an optimized carbon structure, making it even lighter than the Grifn. Additionally, it includes several aerodynamic optimizations, such as the aerodynamic shape of the seat tube with D-shaped seat post and the integrated diffuser on the fork.

Naturally, you can easily switch from a 'road-setup' to an 'offroad-setup' with the Grifn RS. The Grifn RS excels on both regular roads and gravel paths thanks to its well-thought-out and highly appreciated all-road geometry. The frame also has various mounting points so you can choose your personalized setup with the right bike bags and fenders. With tires up to 42 millimeters, it's suitable for any terrain. Like the Grifn, the Grifn RS also features the option to route the cable for a rear light through the top tube.

Furthermore, the integrated front derailleur clamp stands out, which is also easy to remove or can be replaced by an aero chain guide. The UDH derailleur hanger and CeramicSpeed SLT bearings make the Grifn RS the best all-road bike in our range.

Lightweight carbon frame

The lighter weight of the Grifn RS is the result of an optimized carbon structure and the use of lighter and stiffer carbon fibers, resulting in a weight improvement of 140 grams compared to the Grifn.

Optimized tire clearance

For the Grifn RS, Ridley opts for a slightly wider tire clearance compared to the Grifn. With 42 millimeters, they typically provide ample capability to handle a variety of gravel obstacles. This maintains a balance between speed and agility on one hand, and comfort and stability on the other. Of course, on the road, you can easily switch wheels or tires to opt for a narrower one if needed.

All-road geometry

The geometry of the Ridley Grifn is the superb overlap of a stiff racing- and a tolerant off-road frame! The goal is a reactive and nimble riding feel while keeping a stable handling on off-road terrain. The head tube angle of the Grifn is slightly flatter than the head tube angle of a road bike. Compared to a gravel bike, the head tube angle is sharper. This results in a completely new geometry, specifically designed for the all-road segment. The riders of Classified Ridley were also consulted and gave positive feedback on this all-roader.

Diffuser fork crown

The fork crown has an integrated diffuser to reduce drag. The airflow passes more easily through fork crown while extra energy is added to it. The result is that the airflow passes the downtube more easily without pushing the bike back. At the same time there is less drag in the area behind the fork and headtube.

Less resistance, more speed!

Race proven gravel

Both our gravel bikes and our all-road bikes are developed in collaboration with the Classified Ridley Team. As a professional gravel team, they have the knowledge and experience in competition and are ideally positioned to assist us in the quest for marginal gains.

Removable front derailleur clamp

The removable front derailleur clamp will give your bike a clean and neat look when using a 1x setup. We have designed a specific cover to replace the clamp when not used.

Cable routing for lights

Like every bike in the Grifn family, you have the option to route the cable for a rear light through the top tube. This internal cable routing for the dynamo hub is also concealed in the fork leg, eliminating the need for tape and protruding cable ties. This enables you to install lighting on your bike, which is a highly convenient addition when you want to venture into the darkness.

Personalized setup

The frame features three mounting points on and under the downtube, as well as on the seattube, allowing you to customize the positioning of your bottle cages in conjunction with a frame bag. Additionally, there are two mounting points on the top tube for a top tube bag or toolkit, cleverly concealed under a cover. Furthermore, we have designed specific mudguards for the Grifn, enabling you to use your bike in all weather conditions.
