Gone are the days of making sacrifices in order to get the all around bike that can give you the ability to ascend with ease and the confidence to crush any descent. Canyon’s Spectral line of 27.5 inch trail bikes are delivering on the modern expectation of a lightweight climbing machine, backed with plush suspension and snappy geometry.
Getting a facelift for 2018, Canyon has taken their notes from the development of their heavier hitting downhill line and completely reshaped the chassis for the balanced all-mountain appeal riders are looking for. Mounting the shock horizontally provides a sturdy pedaling platform while not losing the nuances of damping in this progressive suspension design, making the Spectral equally poised for XC hot laps or bangers at the local resort. Take your choice between eight models built in a combination of carbon fiber and aluminum, the offering gives an option that will work for any situation.
