It connects with Strava

Canyon has released a new app call Beyond Limits that allows you to make infographics of your rides.

The Canyon Beyond Limits app connects with your Strava account but instead of focussing on making an instant snapshot of a ride or segment it looks at your last 30 rides and combines the data to measure your “absolute performance”.

It then creates an infographic from this data that compares your baseline limit with how often you have gone beyond that limit. The idea is that the app will force you to push yourself on a whole ride, not just be a KOM hunter who takes it easy for most of the time you’re on your bike.

Within the first 24 hours, the Beyond Limits app clocked up over 5,500 users. After five days over 10,000 personal infographics had been created.

Any rider who uses the app and shares their Beyond Limits infographic by January the 1st will automatically be entered into a prize draw to win a Canyon Exceed CF SLX cross country bike.

The app was inspired by Alban Lakata’s winning ride at the 2015 UCI Cross Country Marathon World Championships in Germany. The Austrian finished the 87km course in four hours 24 minutes.
