Gevenalle, a Portland-based company, began with a focus on cyclocross but has expended to offer drop-bar shifting solutions for both road and mountain bike drivetrains, including drop-bar friction shifting.
Gevenalle expanded its offerings with a new 1x version of the GX shifter—the GX1, compatible with 10- and 11-speed systems. The GX1 is designed specifically for those running a single chainring, and is compatible only with short pull brakes.
Both the GX1 and GX2 work with Shimano Dyna-Sys mountain bike components, offering drop bar shifting and braking with mountain bike gearing. With the release of 11 Speed Dyna-Sys and increased customer demand, the GX1 now gives the option to shave weight while maintaining a large selection of gearing for the ride. Price $169-$219.
Gevenalle also launched the UX1 shifters, compatible with Shimano’s Alfine SG-S501 8sp internal hub. Shimano only makes shifters for flat bars for this hub. Based around Gevenalle’s proven cyclocross platform, UX1 shifters are short pull only while the UX2 offers both long or short cable pull. Price: $169-$229.
All Gevenalle shifters come with a no questions asked crash/rebuild policy, getting you back on the road for only $34.00.
