Not long to wait now….
Back in September 2019, we started work on developing our new generation gravel frame – and it’s almost ready. Here’s a sneak peek of the frame before it enters the final stages of production.
Our latest GR1 ‘Hors Route’ will now benefit from a mix of T700/T800 High Modulus Carbon (same as our current FR1, FR2 and SR1 frames) and this generation GR1 will come with more mounts to enable you to carry more bags, bottles and other gear for a day long adventure off road.
This frame has also been modified from our previous version and so now, you can run a whopping 50mm tyre whilst still riding a 700c rim. Added to this, the frame will be suitable for both 1x and 2x gear systems and flat mount disc brake, but also, for ease of maintenance, we have gone back to the future and will be building GR1 with a standard BSA 68mm bottom bracket.
We’ll bring you some more pictures in due course. We expect the first batch of frames to be with us mid-March, and the next batch are due around April. Initial enquiries are more than welcome. Be one of the first Chilli-Gravellers….
