The Grit SX is a complete overhaul of its predecessor with a raft of new features and reworked geometry. We have loaded the SX with everything that we'd want from a gravel/adventure bike in a package that is both tighter and more focused than the original Grit.
The new 6-axis CNC yoke on the drive side chainstay is the cornerstone of the rear triangle redesign; it allows us to increase both tyre and chainring clearance, reduce chainstay length, and maintain internal cable routing.
We've made sure the Grit SX will carry you, and all of your bikepacking luggage. It's built for adventure. The new fork now features full recessed rack bolts for a cleaner profile, internal cable routing for dynamo hubs, and clearance for fenders.
Adding to its bikepacking pedigree, the frame features rack mounts on the rear stays, 3 bidon mounts, room for 1L bottles, chain keeper for swapping wheels, and full rear fenders.
The Grit SX features complex hydroformed profiles designed to assist with the rigors and strain of gravel grinding. Flattened top tube underbelly for easy shoulder carry, double ovalised down tube for increased stiffness under load, double ovalised chainstays for improved drive and flex characteristics.
This isn't one of those "re-designed from the ground up" cliches, we literally went front-to-back. The Grit SX manages the naturally conflicting elements of gravel bikes. Balancing large tyre clearance, slacker front end, precise handling, stiffness, liveliness, and a comfortable ride is no small task. We believe we've done it.
The front end has been completely reworked. We've lengthened the top tube to be optimised around shorter stems and wider bars. That has the added benefit of reducing toe overlap - particularly important for running big tyres.
The heart of the changes at the front are found in the fork’s new ‘flip chip’. Bust out the hex keys and you can transform the Grit SX from sensible to shred mode. The default 52mm offset results in less trail - a more road-biased setting with faster steering. A few minutes on the tools and you can switch to a rowdy 47 mm offset which increases trail, providing more stability but introduces more wheel flop. Helpful when navigating tight and technical terrain.
Shorter chainstays mean more direct drive and a shorter wheelbase which keeps the package feeling tight and responsive. The headtube has been lowered for a slightly more aggressive stance, balancing more weight on the bars for more feel and control.
