With this GRX, Shimano opens possibilities and combinations in gravel

With the introduction of the Shimano GRX RX820 12-speed mechanical components, Shimano continues its legacy of innovation as a creator of gravel-specific components.

Built on simplicity, reliability and experience, the new GRX 12-speed lineup offers more gearing options along with unmatched ergonomics, so riders get the most out of every adventure on the trail, wherever they are.

Focused on the essence and soul of gravel riding, the Shimano GRX mechanical receives this 12-speed update that offers top-tier performance at an affordable price. We understand that gravel is synonymous with freedom and personal choice, to choose how and where to ride, that’s why the new Shimano GRX includes three unique 12-speed mechanical transmission personalities to cover the full spectrum of possible riders and routes.
