Component and drivetrain giant, Shimano have launched a versatile gravel/adventure-specific groupset, which can be set up as double or 1X, 10- or 11-speed, mechanical or electronic shifting, wide or close gear ratios and be integrated for use with a dropper post.
Shimano say the new GRX series is a platform that addresses riders’ needs now and into the future through gravel riding, modern adventure road riding, bike-packing or cyclo-cross.
The Shimano GRX range includes RX400, RX600 and RX800 components, which are compatible as a 1×11, 2×11 or 2×10 drivetrain setup, dropper post-integration, disc brakes and wider rimmed, gravel specific GRX wheels.
Shimano say the components are recommended to be used with existing Shimano MTB (Deore XT, SLX or Deore) or Shimano Road (Ultegra, 105, Tiagra) cassettes and chains.
