Shop Talk is a regular feature in which we take you through the technical characteristics of our bikes much the same way a shop owner might, should you visit one of our authorized dealers, with a few extra details you can only get here in Milan!
This week on “Shop Talk” #11 a very special one as we finally introduce you to the new, radically overhauled, Nemo Gravel.
The 2024 Nemo Gravel represents our most intensely hybridized and extreme adventure gravel bike ever, entirely handcrafted by Cinelli’s internal framebuilder in its Milanese HQ, working 20 meters from the Columbus tubing manufacturing facility creating the world’s most vertically-integrated bicycle manufacturing supply chain.
The Nemo Gravel is characterized above all by its completely redesigned geometry, 700 x 47mm tyre clearance and the use of the HiRide Sterra fork with 20mm of true hydraulic travel (or, if you prefer, a rigid carbon fiber fork). Together these features work to create a bike that is ready to tackle the world’s most extreme gravel competitions and adventures.
Continuously refined over a one year period of testing by riders including former UCI World Champions, NYC courier legends, professional snowboarders and many other athletes pushing to redefine the limits of what gravel cycling can be.
Adaptive geometry on rigid fork option thanks to Columbus fork dropouts that allow to change the rake from 47 to 52 mm. Also features design-driven detailing and it's available in 69 different paint and finish options.
