Canyon Refresh MTB Line-Up for 2021

Considering a new cross-country, trail or enduro mountain bike? Canyon has updated the Lux, Neuron, and Spectral ranges with a new selection of colourways and the latest components. Take a look at the 2021 line up below.

Canyon Lux MY21

The Lux is quite simply one of the fastest and most capable cross-country racing machines to see World Cup action. The Lux has carried racers to victory at the ABSA Cape Epic, Leadville 100, Nové Město, Val di Sole, Snowshoe, Lenzerheide, and, most recently, the World Championships at Mont Sainte Anne. For 2021, Lux returns dressed to kill in component kits normally reserved for bikes with much higher price tags.

All Lux models feature a full carbon frame, 29-inch wheels, 100mm of rear suspension travel, and a host of smart features including a frame-saving Impact Protection Unit, Quixle tool-less, rear thru-axle, integrated chain guide, ultralight DT Swiss dropper post, and space within the front triangle for two water bottle cages.

 

While all Lux models sport remarkably light carbon frames, Canyon does offer two different grades of carbon Lux chassis. CF SLX models feature lighter (1,662 grams, size Medium) frames and 100mm-travel forks, making them perfectly suited to racers who strive for the lightest, most aggressive setup with steeper angles and faster handling.

For more trail-oriented races, riders will appreciate having a bit more front suspension travel to spare. Lux CF models are the ideal choice here thanks to 110mm-travel forks, which provide more cushion and control, while also slackening the head angle by 0.5° for more stable handling at speed. All Lux models combine outstanding pedaling efficiency and truly capable descending chops.

 

Whether you are looking to dominate every race or simply be the first rider to the top of the next climb, the Lux is the perfect choice.

 


Canyon Neuron MY21

Speed, efficiency, outstanding control and capability across challenging terrain — the Neuron is the answer for riders seeking one trail bike that can do it all. A truly universal mountain bike, the Neuron range features options for everyone - including a kids’ Young Hero bike, highly robust aluminium models, and carbon bikes built for uncompromisingly high performance.

 

And fresh for 2021, the Neuron is getting a range of updates - including a whole new model, the high-end carbon fibre Neuron CF Ltd. Conceptualised in collaboration with DT Swiss and limited to a total 100 models worldwide, the bike features 140 mm of fork travel. The bike's component list is also outstanding, with DT Swiss providing a 535 One-series fork and shock and superlight XMC1200 carbon wheels. Parts from SRAM and RaceFace round out the R88,999 package.

Across the rest of the Neuron CF range, a wide selection of bikes feature new colours and refreshed component sets. For example, the CF 8 has been almost completely overhauled, now with a 140 mm Pike fork and Deluxe Select+ shock from RockShox, GX drivetrain and G2 brakes from SRAM, DT Swiss wheels, and Schwalbe Hans Dampf tyres.

Aluminium Neuron models feature 130 mm front and rear travel across the entire range for optimally balanced handling, with unisex models now fitted with one-by drivetrains with larger 32-tooth chainrings (WMN and Young Hero models keep their 30-tooth chainrings), as well as Schwalbe tyres. Several bikes will have new components - such as the Neuron AL 7 and Neuron AL 7 WMN, which newly have Shimano XT drivetrains and SLX brakes. Furthermore, the Neuron Young Hero is now available in two sizes - 2XS and XS - so more kids can get started on the trail.

Canyon Spectral MY21


For years, Canyon's 150 mm-travel full-suspension Spectral has been proving itself as the ultimate trail bike. As agile as possible, as stable as you want, perfectly balanced and poised out on the trail. And for the 2021 season, the Spectral is getting updated specs and
fresh colours.

All 2021 models will feature Ergon’s premium SM10 Enduro saddle and new tyre setups. To retain the bike's signature agile riding dynamics, the Spectral will still roll on 27.5-inch wheels with 30 mm internal rim widths. But for 2021, they will now be newly wrapped in 2.4" MAXXIS rubber for top trail traction in all conditions. Depending on model, the bikes will feature 160 mm (Fox) or 150 mm (RockShox) forks, with all bikes bringing 150 mm rear travel to the trail. Alongside the unisex models, the Spectral range also features several WMN bikes, specially developed for female trail riders. The bikes are built around a women’s-specific geometry and have a range of specially selected components, including more sensitively tuned suspensions, special frame designs, adapted handlebar widths, and women's saddles.

Alongside the classic all-black Stealth look, unisex Spectral bikes are available in two new colour combinations for 2021: Non Forest and the darker New Violet. There are two new WMN bike colours, too: Sprint Mint and Soft Coral. The bikes retain their range of smart design details, such as specially sealed bearings for maximum longevity, a protective downtube cover, noise-free cable routing, and an integrated seatpost clamp. Optional accessories like the Frame Case and the Eject Hydration bottle holder round out the package, providing storage space and refreshment on the trail.
