Pinarello Grevil Adventure Bike

Five Bikes of 2018

When you hear the name Pinarello, images of Miguel Indurain churning over a massive gear in the mountains or Geraint Thomas taking Wales' first Tour de France victory may come in mind. Pinarello are experts when it comes to road and time trial bikes and up to recently have concentrated on what they are known for. That is until now. Introducing the Grevil, the Italian brand's gravel ready adventure bike.

Pinarello is a brand proud of their history but are also never ones to shy away from pushing the boundaries when it comes to technology. From Big Mig's Dogma Time Trial Bike to the latest Dogma K10S with electronic eDSS suspension, the designers and engineers are constantly looking for ways to make their bikes faster and more comfortable. The Grevil+ is just one of their latest innovations.

Pinarello Grevil+ Adventure Road Bike Frame

The Treviso-based design team do not cut corners when it comes to material choice, opting for Torayca T1100G UD Carbon Fibre with Nanoalloy Technology. This aerospace grade material has been chosen for its lightweight, stiff and compliant characteristics. You may recognise Pinarello's Onda Fork from their flagship Dogma F10. Accommodating the disc brakes, the fork has had a Fork Flap added to shield the rotor from the wind. Pinarello also produce the standard Grevil, which differs in the carbon layup, using a lower grade T700 option.

Pinarello Grevil+ Adventure Bike SRAM Force Chainset

The 'go to' groupset for many brands when it comes to speccing adventure bikes, SRAM's Force components offer effortless shifting and allow for a single chainring setup. A 42T SRAM Force FC-Force Crankset is complemented by a 10-42T cassette, gearing to ensure you make it over even the toughest of inclines. Hydraulic disc brakes and 160mm rotors provide immense stopping power and Pinarello's in-house MOST components add a slick touch, with the MOST Gravel Carbon Handlebar and MOST Aluminium Aero Stem offering a comfortable riding position.

Pinarello Grevil+ Adventure Bike Fork
'Dedicated Gravel Geometry' - Pinarello went back to the drawing board with the Grevil+. Offering a shorter reach and higher stack height. The changes to reach improves handling, offering a greater extension of the arms, allowing them to flex better and take the impacts from the terrain you are riding over. The frame has been developed to take technical trails in its stride, with the fork angle moved back and the rake increased to enhance stability over rough terrain. Wheelbase is pretty much the same as a traditional road bike, increasing by just 2.5% to improve comfort. Where the designers have made significant ground is with the seat post. Accentuated, this design promotes flex, absorbing stresses and the comfort for the rider.

Keeping things rubber side down, the FSA K-Force 650B Wheels have been paired with WTB Byway 650 x 47mm Tyres. This combination is both durable and stiff. Stopping fast, the SRAM HRD Force Hydraulic Disc Brakes use 160mm rotors. Finishing things off, a 12x100mm thru-axle at the front and a 12x142mm one at the rear keep provide increased stiffness over a traditional quick release system.

For those looking to invest in a brand with a rich history, with an eye on cutting-edge technology, Pinarello and the Grevil+ provides both by the bucket load. Versatile, fast and aerodynamic the Grevil+ is as capable on the road as it is on technical trails.
