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.

A Dream to Ride!

I love this bike! I’ve been riding gravel on my 27.5 x 2.6 mtb for about a year and a half, and I’ve been blown away at how much better of a ride I get on my Sessions IPA. The frame is solid but light, the geometry is just right for the grades 1-3 gravel roads I’ve ridden so far (and SO MUCH EASIER than the mtb on pavement!), it climbs like a dream with stable tire grip and smooth shifting, and the flare drop bars have been a great antidote for hand fatigue on long rides. I’ve been able to ride faster and longer than ever before, which gives me more riding options. I look forward to putting many, many miles on her!

Growler Session IPA

I'm very happy with my Growler Session IPA. I ordered the APEX build with the 650 wheel set. So far, it has met my every expectation. I just put a pair of 700c wheels I already had on it, and it feels just as good. Nice to be able to switch out wheels for different kinds of rides. The welds are really good, the paint job is flawless. Growler nailed the color of yellow I wanted. Can't wait for some longer rides.

Great Bike

After I broke my elbow, in August 2020, and needed surgery to reconstuct it my doctor recommened I try another kind of cycyling. I decided I wanted a bike that I could ride on the dirt and the tarmac. I discovered Growler Bikes after much research about gravel bikes. My decision to buy a Growler bike has proven to be a fantastic one. The customer service throughout the entire process was outstanding. Whenever I called with questions, Wheels was ready to answer them and was very imformative. When the bike arrived ahead of the assured date, the assembly was as easy as promised, I only needed to put on the front wheel. The bike exceeds my expectations, it is a great go anywhere ride. This bike truly outperforms its modest price tag and is truly a great value. I love this bike.

IPA

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!
