The Shimano Gravel Alliance Explores Washington D.C.
United by their love for adventure, the Shimano Gravel Alliance is a group of 16 riders from across North America. Ranging from old-school gravel legends to up-and-comers ushering in the next generation of gravel riders, the Alliance puts new Shimano gravel equipment to the test while exploring the diverse gravel terrain.
Several times a year, the Alliance comes together to explore new gravel routes and communities. Rain or shine, they put the fun in gravel riding with a regular routine of shenanigans, shots, and skids. From California’s cityscape trails to the Midwest’s wide open roads and the wooded lanes of the East Coast, the Alliance searches out forgotten gravel roads and overlooked trails while pushing each other to Explore Beyond.
DURA-ACE Disc Brakes
Disc brakes deliver all-weather stopping power and superior modulation for all riding conditions. They also open up frame designs, allowing for wider tires while maintaining superior mud clearance when the roads get soggy.
