Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Pinarello Grevil. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

21 reasons to buy

  • A triple-threat; fast on gravel, capable on singletrack and fine on-road.
  • Testers found the Grevil comfortable on long rides.
  • Efficient power transfer through the rear triangle was appreciated.
  • Handling was said to be nimble, responsive, precise and reactive.
  • Generous clearance welcomes tires up to 650b x 2.1” or 700c x 42c.
  • Riding stance is more relaxed and upright than Pinarello’s hardcore road fare.
  • Geometry is taller and shorter than Pinarello’s pure road rigs.
  • The Grevil spoils the quenched with triple bottle mounts.
  • Aero design includes a disc brake shroud and may cut effort over distances.
  • Unique aesthetics give the Grevil a standout design.
  • Atop the Grevil at speed and on descents, riders felt stable and confident.
  • The Grevil is a fast Gravel bike, suited to races.
  • While fast on flats and descents, the Grevil also impressed on longer rides.
  • Thick chainstays and a sizeable bottom bracket reduced flex on climbs.
  • Bars and tape did not give any hint of discomfort or fatigue on longer jaunts.
  • A threaded bottom bracket suited dusty conditions.
  • Shimano’s Ultegra R8000 groupset was difficult to fault.
  • Shimano Ultegra Hydraulic brakes with larger 160mm rotors were plenty powerful.
  • The comfy, stubby MOST Lynx saddle allowed riders to get down low in the drops.
  • Vittoria Terreno Zero G20 tires were grippy, fast and resisted punctures.
  • Subtle flare on the MOST bars assisted descents and aided wrist clearance.

13 reasons not to buy

  • Value was low compared to the competition, considering an alloy bar and wheels.
  • To the backpacker’s chagrin, there are no bosses or fork-mounts for cargo.
  • The Grevil’s lumpy, kinky shape gives it a ‘like it or lump it’ appeal.
  • Unfortunately, this marque comes with an eye-wateringly high price tag.
  • The Grevil’s stiff rear triangle resulted in bounciness from the back end.
  • Some testers expected lighter wheels than the aluminum Fulcrum Racing 7 DBs.
  • Vittoria Terreno Zero G20 tires lost traction on loose terrain and mud.
  • Handlebars coud’ve been carbon at this price – and flared a little more.
  • A more flexible carbon seatpost was wanted to alleviate the harsh back-end.
  • The bottom bracket uses less common and harder-to-source Italian threading.
  • The stubby MOST saddle limited steering via weight shifting.
  • Pinarello’s bar tape leant toward the thin side.
  • Frustrating T20 star-shaped bolts on stem and bottle cage bosses are absent from most multitools.

Bottom line

The Grevil is heavily invested in Pinarello’s aero heritage. This extensive research has resulted in a bike that sports an undeniably unique frame shape. To some, this seemed ugly. But the Grevil does have its admirers. It isn’t one for the bikepacker, as there aren’t any mounts on the forks, for cargo. It can easily fit a front derailleur, serving as road bike for the casual rider. On gravel, the wind-cheating, aero design may be a gimmick. But it was definitely more than capable off-roads, where it was focused on speed rather than exploration.

Pinarello Grevil

I love the way it rides and the way it looks and I will be sad to see it go back. But from a consumer point of view, it’d be hard to justify laying out this sort of money on it.

Pinarello Grevil Review

…there are better choices where the emphasis is on fun rather than speed… somewhat heavy and not generously specced… focused for gravel racing… but it’s objectively quite poor value for money.

Pinarello Grevil Gravel Bike

There’s no getting away from the Grevil’s pricetag – it’s at the premium end… has the flashy aero looks… But it adds proper off road competence… It’s great fun to ride and no slouch on tarmac either.

New Pinarello Grevil – is it Hot or Not?

… all of the curves and shapes are there for reasons… the Grevil is a distinctive looking gravel bike… it’s not going to be a crowd pleaser…

Peloton Magazine

A Devil of a Good Time: Pinarello Grevil+

It’s fast and aero on the flats, quick and confident on the descents, stable and capable in the dirt… between race and endurance, between nimble and stable, in a way that pays real dividends in the gravel.
