This gravel grinder features a complete Shimano GRX 2x11 speed groupset with hydraulic disc brakes for exceptional shifting and braking performance off-road. The low gearing helps you power up steep pitches, while the 11-speed cassette maintains tight gear progression on variable terrain. 

Shimano hydraulic levers and callipers give you the control to scrub speed for sketchy corners. Overall, the GRX package equips this bike with the precision and reliability you need for backcountry adventures.
