While it perhaps first seemed like a passing trend, it’s become very apparent that gravel cycling is here to stay. Hitting that sweet spot between the speed of the road and the adventure of the trails, this cycling category just got a major endorsement from Shimano, one of the biggest brands in the business, with their GRX component group.

This expansive kit is a world’s first and contains everything you need to transform your favorite road bike into a dirt-eating speed machine. Hinging on 1×11, 2×11 or 2×10 crankset and drivetrain options, the GRX is made not to reinvent the wheel, but rather, to make gravel cycling all the more accessible by integrating dirt-ready components with modern systems, like hydraulic disc brakes and both mechanical and Di2 electronic drivetrains. Along with the drivetrain, the groupset also includes wheelsets, derailleurs, multi-position brakes, shift/brake levers, and more — all made to tackle those less-traveled roads with speed and finesse. Pricing starts at $200, but you should expect a full setup to cost well into the thousands.

Purchase: $200+
