Born out of adventure and the call to Explore Beyond, Shimano delivered the first dedicated gravel components back in 2019 with Shimano GRX. Built to support riders as they pursued a wider range of terrain on drop bars, GRX parts helped advance gravel riding and opened the door to new riders around the world. Today, Shimano releases GRX Limited to celebrate this revolutionary gravel group and the heritage of drop bar adventure riding.


At its core, GRX Limited is the tried and true 11-speed mechanical GRX 800 series groupset, but the brushed and polished silver finish delivers a classy take on the quality, precision, and durability synonymous with GRX. The limited run of parts comes in three available spec options; 1x11-speed and 2x11-speed for drop bars, and a third, special offering of 1x11-speed for flat bar configuration.


GRX Limited will be available solely as a complete group set, only available from frame builders and aftermarket retailers.
