    ALL-OUT
    GRAVEL PERFORMANCE

    In your pursuit of Gravel KOM’s, the top of the leader board or the mud-caked finish line, accept no compromise. The Gravel SL is superlight, rugged, and stiff - owing much to our Endurance SL family of frames. Sharing the same advanced carbon monocoque construction and aero credentials. Make no mistake, the Gravel SL is unapologetic about its terrain-eating speed, pro-level performance, and go-anywhere attitude. It just begs to be ridden flat-out everywhere and delivers a fast, lively ride that enables you to bullet along gravel tracks and forest trails at eye-popping, ears-pinned speeds.

    CHASE
    HORIZONS

    The Gravel SL is a pure gravel racer and is fully kitted out with everything that the gravel rider who loves the freedom of exploring without limits needs. Off-road optimised 1x gear systems, gravel-specific ergonomics and tyres to suit every type of gravel terrain give this bike the capability to take on the most epic of adventures. Designed to provide a wealth of luggage mounting options, the Gravel SL opens up the possibility for comfortably fast-paced bikepacking adventures and ensures that no matter how far you plan to go, nothing gets left behind.

    ADVANCED MONOCOQUE
    CONSTRUCTION

    The Gravel SL features the same advanced carbon construction that was developed for our Endurance SL high-performace road family of frames. A bespoke mixture of Toray T1000 & T800 carbon fibres are carefully layered to an exacting specification over an EPS inner core system for to ensure complete structural consistency of the fibres with no weak spots. A perfectly balanced geometry provides race-focused handling and acceleration whilst maintaining the same drag-efficient frame shapes and optimised power transfer as our flagship road racing superbike, the Endurance SL R Series.

    CARRYALL MOUNTS &
    LUGGAGE CAPACITY

    Multiple frame mounts offer plenty of luggage carrying capacity for extreme bike packing adventures, big or small. This includes two sets of water bottle mounts inside the main triangle and extra sets situated underneath the downtube and on the top tube. There are rear rack mounts as well as 'Carryall' mounts on the front fork that allow the attachment of oversize cages for items such as dry bags, ground mats and sleeping bags.

    TYRE
    CLEARANCE

    Whether you prefer your tyres wide and aggressive or narrow and fast you can now have your cake and eat it. There’s huge clearance for 650bx47mm or 700cx45mm tyres and a wide selection of tyres with multiple tread patterns are available in BikeBuilder and offer the perfect solution for all types of gravel terrain.

    INTERNAL CABLE
    ROUTING

    Fully internal cable routing enhances those super sleek, smooth lines while keeping the cables protected from dirt and grime. This extends to the possibility of running Shimano Di2 electronic gear systems.

    SEAMLESS
    INTEGRATION

    The Gravel SL is compatible with our latest integrated carbon handlebar system which includes gravel-specific ergonomics and takes cable integration to the next level. Featuring a full carbon monocoque construction, the stiff and super-strong LEVEL 5 handlebars offer clean, cable-free aesthetics and a significant drag reduction when compared to a standard handlebar and stem setup. The flared shape of the drops provides enhanced confidence and control on technical terrain with extra clearance for the installation of handlebar bags and seamless integration with LEVEL 5 out-front mounts.
