Adventure and performance just found a whole new level.

In the pursuit of more fun and speed on dirt, gravel, and pavement, we sought some aero advantages; stiffness. We wanted less weight, and no excuses to smash it—on race day, or the weekend romp. We wanted hidden cables, and precise handling. In short we wanted it all—and we found it.

Adventure just found another gear. Introducing the GVR. Because fast is fun.

The wild spirit of gravel finds us traversing unknown backroads and trails, in the simple joy of seeking. But many of us seek with speed, chasing increased performance, hunting the edge of our capability. So our product design team created a bike with the nuances that performance-hungry riders want. Like surgically precise handling. Unyielding stiffness for maximal power. Toughness to handle almost any terrain. And weight savings that make the difference, whether you’re on a technical, mountainous mixed-surface sojourn with friends at the Belgian Waffle Ride in San Diego, or a 200-mile race across the Kansas flatlands, on unending flint dirt roads at Unbound Gravel.

The GVR exists as one of the lighter gravel platforms available. Want speed? Along with a geometry that keeps you driving forward, we’ve hidden all cables from the wind, all tucked cleanly away within the bar, stem and frame. We engineered frame shapes with some basis in aerodynamics, and even tested them in the wind tunnel. We’ve built in geometry and options that put you into as aggressive a riding position as you like. With several tire options and tire clearance up to 45mm on 700c wheels, you’ll be set for anything the path throws your way.

And as always, you can choose your build in a way unrivaled by any other brand. From a frame of drivetrain components, alloy or carbon wheels, tire options, choice of 650b or 700c wheel varieties, even a new color-blocked range of frame, fork and graphic color choices—are all your choice and built from the ground-up. When you build a GVR, no two are alike—it’s built just for you.

You can train to be fast. But we’ve engineered the GVR to help you be even faster. Because at the end of the day, fast is fun.

This Bike Is For You If...

Finding your wild side includes a lot of race-day action. While the GVR has all the accoutrements needed for the weekend adventure with friends, its nimble-handling, shortened stays and aerodynamic acumen from hidden cables to frame design position it neatly for performance-oriented riding. The GVR is engineered for precision handling on the toughest courses and tight switchback climbs, with stability and smart handling on fast, flat roads and fire roads.
