New Spectral CF, Spectral WMN, Neuron and Exceed CF
Brief details of four new models in Canyon’s range for 2017 have just landed in our inbox, so without nay further ado here they are.
There’s a new Spectral CF carbon enduro bike, a Spectral WMN for female riders, a new 120mm Neuron 29er and a new Exceed CF cross country race bike.
2017 Canyon Spectral CF 9.0 EX
Canyon catalogue-speak: “Super clean, lightweight and highly capable – this is the dream setup for committed trail riders. Packing 150 mm from the RockShox Pike RCT3 forks and 140 mm in the rear with the Monarch RT3 shock, you’re in control when things get steep and technical. SRAM’s 12-speed Eagle groupset means you can save energy for where it counts when lapping the trails.”
2017 Canyon Spectral WMN CF 9.0 EX
Canyon catalogue-speak: “Born to meet the demands of female riders, we teamed up with RockShox to come up with a special damper tune that enhances control and handling performance for lighter riders. A 32-tooth chainring up front combines with SRAM Eagle’s huge range at the back to make the climbs as effortless as the descents.”
2017 Canyon Neuron AL 9.9 SL
Canyon catalogue-speak: “When it comes to epic rides where all-round performance is key, the Neuron has you covered. With attitude to transform your favourite trails and a setup light enough for marathon racing, SRAM Eagle shifting makes steep climbs a breeze while FOX 34 Factory Float forks keep everything under control on the way down.”
2017 Canyon Exceed CF Sl 7.9 PRO RACE
Canyon catalogue-speak: “The latest addition to our hardtail lineup has World Championship-winning DNA and serves up an unbeatable mix of lightness, comfort, stiffness and outstanding durability. With a geometry at the forefront of the modern approach and SRAM Eagle shifting, this is the ideal setup for any XC racing enthusiast.”
