VIDEO: Shimano GRX 1x Mechanical Groupset – Real Footage – Up Close & Personal!

Shimano recently introduced the world’s first gravel specific groupset, 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

This is arguably the first real-world footage of the new groupset, spotted at Roll Massif’s Wild Horse Gravel event near De Beque, Colorado – http://rollmassif.com

Nick Legan, Road Brand Manager for Shimano North America provides a quick run through of the new groupset, whilst the video shows the key components of the 1x mechanical groupset, including plenty of still images. Pardon one or two camera shakes, groupset parts are a little difficult to focus when recording video!

For those wondering, the GRX groupset is fitted to a custom-painted Salsa Warbird.
