CANYON//SRAM Racing pro Tiffany Cromwell took a break from Women’s WorldTour racing this summer to hit the gravel circuit in the USA on a special pro pink carbon Grail CF SL gravel bike. Now that she’s wrapped up her race season after a Belgian Waffle win in Kansas a week ago, and headed to Mexico for much-needed R&R, Canyon have offered up a super limited CSR pro replica of her gravel bike available now to the first hundred bold gravelers.
Canyon Grail CF SL 7 Race CSR pro replica gravel bike
This limited edition CSR (CANYON//SRAM Racing) replica bike itself is a stock Canyon Grail CF SL, built with the slightly heavier but more affordable carbon spec than the SLX version Cromwell had been racing.
It does get the same shock pink & black graphics as Cromwell’s US gravel campaign bike, with artwork inspired by the stylized intergalactic lightning stripes of the Canyon//SRAM team kit, now morphing into a more down-to-earth pattern.
The complete build doesn’t quite match the exact SRAM Red, power meter cranks & Zipp wheels spec of Cromwell, but managed to get the same general idea across on a more palatable budget and with a bike of extra flexing seatpost comfort thrown in.
Canyon says the idea was to combine the mixed-surface race-ready capabilities of their fast gravel Grail with a parts spec “selected for speed and efficiency across a wide variety of surfaces” that could deliver “the sweet spot between speed and value.”
