Excellent value and great fun.
Uncompromisingly lightweight, efficient and agile - the new Lux CF combines the best of the successful Grand Canyon CF SLX 29 marathon racer with the Nerve CF full carbon model to create a perfect, full suspension 29-inch marathon race bike. The focus of the frame is the revolutionary Flex Pivot carbon rear triangle which has been specially adapted to the 100 mm spring travel and the required climbing properties of a 29-inch full suspension race bike. In contrast to the Nerve CF, however, the damper does not have a floating mount but is securely anchored in the frame. This saves even more weight and underlines the clear, fluid design.
Thanks to its excellent anti-squat kinematics the Lux CF is drive-neutral on uphill sections and responds sensitively without penalties with control and safety when travelling downhill. The tapered head tube together with the potent chassis provides even more agile handling and a safe feeling on high speed sections. Fitted with innovative Canyon features such as the chainsuck plate inserted into the carbon and the patented impact protection unit (IPU) which protects the top tube from damage in the event of a fall, you have everything you could possibly want for racing. All Lux CF models are prepared for the integration of a Vario seat post. 100% racing luxury - as proven by Alban Lakata during his Leadville 100 victory in record time!
In the event of a fall a socket with a limit stop prevents the handlebar damaging the top tube. The socket is secured with two hollow screws. These will withstand a medium impact but will also act as a design breaking point in an emergency. In other words in the event of a serious fall the hollow screws will be defective but the frame will only suffer scratches.
High steering precision and top rigidity values – when combined with the appropriate fork the oversized tapered head tube delivers even more agile handling and a safe feeling on high speed sections. This means that the Lux CF follows steering commands with razor sharp accuracy and is the perfect bike for ambitious XC and marathon riders.
When the single-piece full carbon rear triangle is compressed the Flex Pivot seat stays which in principle act like leaf springs take over the role of the rear pivot point. The material properties and design of the seat stays enable them to take over the 3.5° deflection which is normally absorbed by the bearing. This innovative Flex Pivot technology minimises weight and maintenance work without any compromises in terms of suspension performance, lateral rigidity and durability.
The fixed shock mount gives the Lux CF a performance-based, moderately progressive kinematic curve. It also results in a reduction in weight.
