Canyon launches 2020 mountain bike line up
Canyon Bicycles GmbH has announced the launch of its 2020 lineup of mountain bikes. Athletes such as Pauline Ferrand-Prévot, Mathieu van der Poel, Braydon Bringhurst, and many others helped with the design and final outcome of these race and rowdy machines. What follows is our pick of the most exciting Canyon mountain bike coming to the dirt in 2020.
“This is Canyon’s strongest offering yet, with the performance demanded by the world’s top professional riders paired with legendary value. The Strive is race-proven by the fastest EWS team in the world, the Lux could win Gold in Tokyo, and the Spectral and Neuron are both trail bikes that can tackle whatever lurks around the next bend, whether that’s a 15-foot gap or a 3000-foot climb. And all of those bikes can be delivered right to your door, ready to roll in just 20 minutes.”
-Vernon Felton, Global MTB Marketing Manager for Canyon Bicycle GmbH.
2020 Standout models include
Canyon Strive CF 8.0
This is the same all-trail ripper seen under Braydon Bringhurst in Interpret, where he easily rode up the Waterfall section of St. George, UT’s Zen Trail–a section of trail that many riders struggle to ride *down* cleanly. The Strive comes with Shimano’s new XT brakes and 1×12 drivetrain, a FOX 36 fork and DPX2 rear shock combo, FOX Transfer dropper post, and DT Swiss E 1700 wheelset, all draped on the revamped frame featuring Shapeshifter 2.0 which toggles shock travel between 150mm and 135mm at the push of a button.
Canyon Lux CF SLX 9.0 Team
This XC machine is almost identical to Mathieu van der Poel’s race-winning steed. Highlights here include a frame that weighs just 2 kilograms (size Medium, with shock), Shimano XTR M9100 1x drivetrain, DT Swiss XRC1200 carbon wheels, and Fox 32 Factory Stepcast remote fork.
Canyon Neuron CF SLX 9.0 LTD
Just launched, this featherweight trail 29er is over half a pound lighter than the standard Neuron CF while boasting a balanced descend vs. climb personality enabled by Fox 34 Factory fork and Float DPS Factory shock, a Fox Transfer dropper, DT Swiss XMC 1200 carbon hoops with 30mm internal rim width, and Shimano XTR M9100 12s shifting.
Canyon Neuron AL 6.0 SL
Truly impressive value for under $2k, this capable full suspension trail bike rolls on dependable Mavic rims mated to Shimano hubs, with SRAM NX Eagle 12s shifting, and 130mm of travel courtesy of RockShox Recon RL in front and Deluxe RT in back.
Canyon Spectral AL 5.0
At just a hair over 31lbs., the 160mm/150mm travel Spectral boasts the newest RockShox Pike Select, SRAM NX Eagle, and Race Face AR30 wheelset with a deeper rim profile and asymmetric design for improved durability.
Canyon Torque CF 7.0
The Torque CF 7.0 is proof that you can get a truly capable gravity bike without coughing up a mint. Consider the stellar full-carbon frame, RockShox Lyrik Select + and Super Deluxe Select + RT suspension combo, SRAM GX Eagle 1×12 drivetrain and powerful SRAM Code R brakes.
