Our G-X bikes are versatility defined. On-road, off-road or both in the same ride, our uniquely capable, effortlessly comfortable yet efficiently fast Friston and Gisburn bikes set a new standard for any-ride all-rounders.

In fact we’ve pushed the off road boundaries of drop bar bikes so far we’ve had to make our own components such as a 500mm wide bar and 15mm through-axle carbon fork to keep up. That’s because our MTB inspired, relaxed head angle, stretched top tube geometry and even a dropper post as standard on the Gisburn will keep you in control way beyond what most 700c bikes can cope with.

Carefully engineered stays, 40mm tubeless tyres on wide rims (plus the option to fit the latest 27.5in RoadPLUS wheels and tyres) means exploring your wild side will be endlessly enjoyable, not barely endurable. They’ll still feel fast and efficient when you’re joining dots on the road or navigating city streets not distant hills.

SRAM’s super wide range single ring transmissions and fingertip sensitive hydraulic disc brakes with direct fit 160mm rear for extra power are the perfect component partners to our ultra-versatile design vision. Our unique sealed InterGrip seat post mounts, DOX internal cable and dropper post routing makes them as weather-proof as they are future-proof and means the only limit on what our G-X bikes can do is your imagination.

"Not only is it the most surefooted fun by far as we swerve and surf the singletrack north back to High Paradise Farm, it’s also a surprisingly smooth, efficient cruising and practically detailed, weather sealed ride on the road too, putting it right at the progressive edge of all-round adventure enjoyment" Cycling Plus
