“Following a multi-year global market study, product testing and development process, Shimano introduce the world’s first dedicated gravel component line: SHIMANO GRX. New for the 2020 model year, the SHIMANO GRX 800 series offers 1×11 and 2×11 drivetrains – with mechanical and Di2 electronic options – that allow riders to tailor their mixed surface riding experience and Explore Beyond.” – Shimano
Shimano kindly invited me to their GRX Media camp in beautiful Whitefish, Montana, for several days of riding, tech talk and more.
In this video, you’ll hear about some of the concepts behind GRX Di2, see my first rides on the GRX Di2 groupset, the finer details, impressions and so forth. In particular, shifters, derailleurs and the sub brake levers are covered, along with everything else in the groupset.
This particular GRX groupset was installed on a Pivot Vault (see the link below for details of that frame and fork) with a full complement of Shimano Pro cockpit parts, etc, to be ridden and reviewed long term. Additionally, there will be a Montana ride experience video coming later.
