WELCOME TO THE NEXT GENERATION OF GRAVEL.
When we were looking to add a new bike to our lineup, the number one thing we aimed for was expanding versatility of terrains we could shred. The obvious choice was a gravel bike. From gravel, to road, and even single track the American Session IPA doesn’t miss a beat. It’s really the ultimate adventure machine.
Made right here in the US using 100% 7075 aluminum tubing, this bike is built to last. We’re so confident in its performance that we offer a lifetime warranty on all of our frames. Buying domestically yields a number of other benefits. By supporting American made products, you’re supporting local jobs, local businesses, and a more ethical and sustainable manufacturing process.
As with all of the bikes in our lineup, the customization possibilities are pretty much endless. Seriously, we did the math and there’s 46,523,913,960,000,000,000,000 possible combinations. Good thing we have Ben here to keep all those straight!
Due to extreme demand, the ship date on a bike ordered today will be July.

Having attempted to purchase a gravel bike from a number of companies, including Canyon (who was consistently out of stock), or other companies - who wanted a fortune to customize a bike, then make you wait, and wait, my Growler Rival is awesome. Welds, paint, assembly, on par with other bikes I've owned that were significantly more expensive. No manufacturer could have taken the time to explain sizing or options the way Ben did, and it made a difference. I will happily recommend Growler to friends looking for a gravel bike.
This bike is light, well spec’d for the price and I am thrilled that the color was so customizable! Highly recommend growler and their amazing customer service
Unfortunately, a foot injury has made it impossible to ride sine receiving my bike ‘Lloyd be happy to let you know how I like it in a week or so when I’ve recovered. Assembly was easy but I could use some guidance on proper tire pressure and the procedure for raising the bar stem.
This is a great on and off road bike that can rail turns in the woods and accelerate on the road. Very well spec'd out for the price
