- 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.

- 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.
