New Bike Release: Canyon Spectral 29
New Bike Release: The Canyon Spectral 29
(Canyon Press Release)
ROOM FOR JUST ONE BIKE IN YOUR GARAGE? THIS IS IT.
Behold the Spectral 29—a trail bike that can take on anything and everything. Using our existing, award-winning, Spectral 27.5 as a foundation, we took all the things we loved from that bike and added more—as in more capability and more versatility.
So, what’s new? Almost everything. ‘Almost’ being the keyword here. The Spectral 29 has the same 150mm of
rear-suspension travel and playful character on the trail as its smaller-wheeled brother and the same Triple Phase
Suspension design, but that’s where the similarities end. The Spectral 29 has an all-new carbon frame, designed
from the ground up. At just 2,600 grams, it’s lighter, and stiffer than before, offering the rider more direct control
and increased confidence. The geometry has also been reworked; there’s more stability on the descents, as well
as greater efficiency on the climbs, thanks to a slacker headtube angle and steeper seat-tube. And to give you
plenty of room to control the bike, we made the reach longer too. Finally, the addition of bigger 29” wheels brings
additional stability and speed to the party.
We’re offering Spectral 29 in two different suspension packages. The Spectral 29 CF 7.0 features a lighter, more
“all-rounder” suspension kit that includes a 150mm-travel RockShox Pike Select RC fork and Deluxe Select+ in-line
rear shock. Our CF 8, by contrast, feature a “shred” suspension spec, consisting of a burlier 160mm-travel FOX 36
Mountain Bike Action is a monthly magazine devoted to all things mountain biking (yes, that’s 12 times a year because we never take a month off of mountain biking). It has been around since 1986 and we’re still having fun.
