Decathlon brand Van Rysel has introduced the EDR CF GRX gravel bike, bringing a full carbon frame and Shimano GRX at a very friendly price: £1,700.
The new model promises a strong spec for the cash.
Starting with its full carbon frame, it also gets a carbon fork and a 1x11 Shimano GRX drivetrain with RX600 levers and an RX800 rear mech. Word has it that there's a pricier SRAM eTap equipped model on the way too.
Decathlon claims the frame weighs 1,020g in a size M, and the fork 340g, impressively low weights for any carbon gravel frame, especially one on a £1,700 bike.
The bike rolls on Shimano GRX wheels wrapped in 700x38 Hutchinson Mamba CX tyres, which are tubeless-ready.
It gets Van Rysel-branded bars with a 12° flare and a Fizik Antares saddle too.
With the geometry, each size varies a little to offer a similar ride feel across the range. An S gets a 71.5° head tube angle, while an M gets a 73.5° head tube angle and the large receiving a 73° angle. All sizes get a 425mm chainstay and the reach (on a large) measures in at 392.5mm.
The Van Rysel EDR CF GRX will set you back £1,699.99 and it comes in three sizes, S up to L.
It also only comes in the one colourway.
