In March of 2018, German bike outfit, Canyon introduced its first-ever electric mountain bike with the Spectral:ON. Almost exactly two-years-later and the Koblenz company has now revealed the successor to its inaugural e-bike offering with the new and improved Spectral:ON CF 7.0.

The CF 7.0 has received a host of changes and updates over its predecessor, including new, 27.5×2.6 rear tires, revised geometry and a tweaked suspension setup that allow for a better center of gravity and overall superior handling, and the most significant difference: the new model’s carbon fiber front triangle. Other standard equipment on the new 7.0 mountain bike includes a Shimano E8000 drive, XT/SLX drivetrain, and quad-piston MT520 brakes, an Iridium dropper post, RockShox Deluxe Select shock and Lyrik Select suspension fork that affords 150mm of travel fore and aft, and handlebars — which boast internally-routed wires — saddle, motor shield, chain-ring guard, and several other elements, all of which were designed in-house by Canyon. Sold by the company directly to consumers, the Canyon Spectral-ON CF 7.0 has been priced at $4,999. And, unlike the first generation of the Canyon Spectral:ON, the new CF 7.0 will be available to the US market.

Purchase: $4,999
