Ridley Grifn GRX800 Carbon All-Road Bike - 2023

The Grifn is designed for riders looking for that one bike that can do it all. Whether it's competitive rides on smooth asphalt or commuting on crisp gravel paths, the Grifn is the all-road bike for all surfaces.

In the design, we combined the speed of a road bike with the comfort of a gravel bike. With a maximum tire clearance of 38mm (40mm with 1x drivetrain), you'll have traction on country roads, while 32mm allows you to assert your place in the peloton. Additionally, it's possible to connect fenders and a dynamo to the bike, ensuring you can go anywhere even in bad or dark weather.

The name Grifn refers to the mythical creature griffin, a mythological creature symbolizing dominion over heaven and earth. Therefore, the Grifn reigns over both asphalt and gravel. The geometry is tailored to the riding behavior that best suits the intended use of the bike and the terrain. There's ample comfort for long distances, and the bike is aggressive enough for competitive Gran Fondos.

In short, with the Grifn, we're essentially breaking the N+1 rule of bike ownership.

Design & Innovation Award 2022

The jury agrees: the Grifn can do it all. "If there was one word that Ridley had in mind when developing the Grifn allroad bike, it was versatility. Whether its gravel roads or alpine passes, with the right tires, the bike can do it all. Added to that is the Grifn’s low-key, classic looks", is what the jury concludes.

We’re very proud to be awarded the Design & Innovation Award, the Oscars of the bike and outdoor industries.

UDH Hanger

The universal derailleur hanger (UDH) is the new standard in the cycling world. Not only is this derailleur hanger compatible with all modern shifting groups, it also protects against derailleur breakage and chain drops. In mountain biking, UDH has long been very common, and Ridley is bringing the technology to other segments as well.

Integrated cable routing rear light

The frame offers the possibility to route the cable for a rear light internally inside the top tube where it will exit near the the seattube. At the same time these cable ports are nicely hidden so when not using them, you will hardly notice them on your frame.

Internal Dynamo Routing

The fork is equipped with internal cable routing for a dynamo hub. No more hassle with tape or tie-wraps to guide the cable from the dynamo hub to the front light as the cable is now nicely hidden inside the forkleg.

Mudguard Mounts

The frame and fork have mounts to assemble mudguards to protect you against the rain and dirt of the road. The mudguards will convert your bike in a perfect winter bike or commuter bike. In our online shop, we offer suitable mudguards that you can order together with your new bike.

Kanzo Specific Tire Clearance

The tire clearance of a frame is determined by the use and terrain for which the frame is designed. An AllRoad gravel bike is designed for mixed use on paved and unpaved roads. Adventure gravel bikes have to be able to tackle more extreme terrain as you never know what trails you will encounter. This means that different frames will have a different tire clearance.

Kanzo Specific Tire Clearance
Kanzo Optimized Geometry

The geometry of a bike has to support the scope of the bike. The geometry determines how a bike will handle, react. Different terrains, different riding styles require a different handling. That’s why Ridley has developped a specific geometry for each Kanzo model. An adventure gravel bike needs a stable, confidence inspiring geometry while an aero  gravel bike needs to react directly to the input of the rider. Choose your terrain and use and pick the bike that suits you best.

Hidden Top Tube Mounting Points

The recessed top tube mounts combined with the flush fitting cover result in hidden mounting points when the mounts are not used. No bolt head sticking out to clutter the sleek looking top tube profile. 

A spacer is provided to fill the recess when using a top tube bag. This spacer also doubles as a strap mount so that you can strap various accessories to the top tube.

Bikepacking Optimized Frame Mounts

The frame has different mounts on the downtube, under the downtube and the seattube. Depending on the frame model, this can be 2, 3 or 4 mounts. These mounts will give you the opportunity to adapt your setup to the use of the bike: position your bottles in combination with a frame bag, using a toolmount in combination with a bottlecage. We have spent a lot of time to determine the optimal position for these mounts on the frame so you can optimize your personal setup

F-Tubing & F-Surface Plus

How can you ride faster without pedaling harder? How do objects "cut" through wind? While researching ways to improve aerodynamics, the bicycle industry began to gather knowledge from the aviation industry. From this, well-known NACA flight profiles, for designing wings and other components, began to be applied to the tubes of a bike frame.

With further research, our engineers found many additional potential optimisations. By shortening the end of the NACA profiles (F-Tubing), we discovered that drag was reduced. We also created a groove in the frame called the F-Surface Plus. By applying this technique, we created an airflow that flows more efficiently along the tube.

Ridley Elite Carbon

Our carbon is manufactured by world market leader: Toray. The Japanese manufacturer is leader in every aspect of carbon development and supplier to absolute top world brands in many industries. For the Elite Series, we use every type of available carbon: 60T, 50T, 30T and 24T.

The higher the 'Ton', the higher the tensile strength of the carbon fibers and the more intensive the development and processing. With 60T, you may need fewer layers of carbon to achieve the desired stiffness as well as the lightest possible bike, but if you built the whole frame with 60T you'd have a very uncomfortable, over-responsive ride. Hence, a mix of 24T, 30T, 50T and 60T carbon is essential as each carbon serves a certain purpose in perfectly balancing stiffness, weight and comfort.

Each bike's unique carbon mix is dependent on its purpose, such as climbing, endurance, etc. In addition, each area of each frame requires its own unique mix depending on its function such as to provide comfort or stiffness. It is here, in the unique carbon compositions, where Ridley makes the difference!

As all our professional teams ride our Ridley Elite Series bikes - including the likes of Tim Wellens, Caleb Ewan or Thomas De Gendt, this means that your bike is treated with the exact same care as theirs.
