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.
**Due to limited product availability, standard components are subject to change without notice, though you will be notified before the bike ships.**

I found Growler bikes online after many months of searching for the prefect gravel bike. Many emails and phone calls later, that were always answered promptly, I placed the order in February and received it, as promised in late April. The packaging was great with no issues. Assembly was fast, easy and per Growlers instructions I was riding my beautiful new machine!!! This bike has exceeded all my expectations! The ride is seemingly effortless and fun. The frame design is perfect for me and the paint job is flawless. I upgraded the handlebars to the FSA A Wing Pro in carbon and absolutely love them and the tape wrap was done to perfection. Thank you Willo and Rick for always taking the time to talk to me through this process. I love this bike.....Great job Growler!
I love the bike, everything about this experience was fun compared to buying from a traditional bike shop. I have purchased eight bikes from my local bike shop over the years, and the service and enjoyment was never as good or as fun as dealing with the folks at Growler. I stopped at the shop in Rochester while on vacation, that was also a totally cool experience.
What a perfect build! This bike checked all the boxes for me for a gravel bike. I had a custom paint and graphic scheme that was handled flawlessly. It is the most beautiful looking bike I have ever owned. The components speak for themselves, very reliable. Every step of the way dealing with this company was great. Individualized attention and answered every question I had along the way. Here is my build....it speaks for itself! https://youtu.be/Ozo16ZBn634
Love this bike and the work the people at Growler did. First ride was an easy riverside ride in Asheville NC then took it outo Pisgah Nat forest for some mountain roads and it was awesome!
Great bike and greatest service! I was called when assembly started to ask what color tires I wanted. Had requested tan saddle and bar tape and they supplied gum tires to match. The wheels were set up tubeless already. Great riding bike! Finish is first class
