However, the bike is still packed with some neat details, much for your pleasure.

In AL 7.0, you will find a tapered head tube, hose routing, and internal cable. There are also three bottle cage mounts added to AL 7.0. Meanwhile, the carbon used to make the fork is aimed to reduce the overall weight of the bike.

The short stem of AL 7.0 also makes it possible for you to have more fun when you are not riding the bike off-road. On top of that, the geometry of Canyon Grail AL 7.0 comes with a long wheelbase to provide you with a stable ride when passing through gravel tracks.
