Gevenalle is a based in Portland, Oregon, USA, and specialises in equipment for the pain-and-mud-fest that goes by the name of cyclocross. It is possible that the company was founded in 2014 by Adam Clement.

The word Gevenalle is composed of 'geven', the Dutch word for 'give', and 'alle' the Dutch word for 'all'. I don't want to be a spoil-sport, but if I had to christen a cyclocross brand I might rather choose to combine 'geven' and 'op'. I have never particularly enjoyed the taste of mud between my teeth - but, then, every sport has its fans.

I believe that Gevenalle introduced its first derailleur, the Gevenalle BURD 10 speed, in 2015. This was a microSHIFT model adapted with a stronger chain tensioning spring and was offered with a choice of Shimano Ultegra or FSA Ceramic pulley wheels. Both of these pulley wheel options were judged superior to run-of-the-mill pulley wheels when it came to grinding through mud. BURD stands for Blatantly Upgraded Rebranded Derailleur.

More recently, possibly in 2016, Gevenalle introduced the Gevenalle BURD 11 speed derailleur. This was based on a slightly more recent microSHIFT model. Gevenalle also now offer both the original 10 speed and the new 11 speed derailleurs with a choice of three types of pulley wheel, the original two choices plus the even more up-market Kogel CX sealed bearing units.
