Outstanding - test victory
The most successful model series in the Canyon range. The Nerve breaks all records and therefore it was only a matter of time before Canyon launched the Nerve AL (formerly XC) onto the market as a 29er. The Nerve AL 29 represents a transfer of know-how from the Canyon 29er hardtails into the world of full suspension bikes. The geometry, transmission ratios and equipment are fine tuned to accommodate the demands of the large wheels. The modern frame with its distinctive design makes full use of the advantages alloy offers and impresses with a sensational weight of just 2650g. The most striking feature of the frame is the one-piece top tube.
Thanks to the most modern hydro forming processes the gusset linking the seat and top tubes has become superfluous. This avoids the need for an additional weld seam, thereby achieving greater frame reliability and durability. Further solutions such as angular contact bearings in the main bearing and rocker arm, the tried and tested Canyon anti-squat kinematic and the X12 thru-axle guarantee you a feeling of safety on the bike whilst ensuring a long service life and delivering maximum forward power in every situation. Ideal for touring riders with competitive ambitions who will get the feeling that the 110mm of travel is significantly more thanks to the large wheels.
The most prominent feature of the modern alloy frame is the one-piece top tube. Thanks to the most modern hydroforming method no gusset is required on the connection to the seat tube. This avoids a further weld seam and a greater reliability and durability is achieved.
For precise handling and optimized climbing
The use of preloaded angular contact bearings in the main bearing and rocker eliminates play and achieves optimum levels of stiffness. In addition, all bearings are fitted with double seals. This effectively repels dirt and the bearings therefore have a longer service life and deliver a much improved response.
The large 29 inch wheels require longer chain stays therefore the use of a modern X12 thru axle is a decisive factor. This guarantees the rider precise and safe handling in every situation.
