Deal: Save $1,200 on Your First Gravel Bike From Pinarello
The top-notch Grevil Force 1 is ready for summer afternoons spent far from the main roads
America may be going through a bike shortage at the moment, but that mainly applies to entry-level bikes that cost $1,000 or less. It isn’t difficult to bring home a top-notch gravel bike right now, like Pinarello’s Grevil Force 1, which is currently a rare $1,200 off.
As we wrote last week, gravel biking is ideally suited for a strange summer of social distancing. The activity involves stringing together varying trails far away from main thoroughfares — fire roads, power-line trails and farm tracks — over distances of 20 to 100 miles. That type of riding needs a special kind of bike, with a light frame similar to a drop-bar road bike, but tires fat enough to stomach tough terrain.
Treviso, Italy-based Pinarello knows how to make them. They’ve been designing and manufacturing bikes since 1952, and routinely carry Tour de France victors across the finish line. Their transition to building gravel bikes has been seamless; the brand put out a well-reviewed gravel bike (the Gan GR) when the trend exploded earlier last decade, only it turned out to be a place-holder, meant to buy Pinarello enough time to build the Grevil Force 1. This is their masterpiece: a carbon-framed, all-road bike with flat-mount disc brakes, added comfort and 42mm tires.
