Outstanding – Test victory
The Nerve XC 8.0 is the jewel in the crown of XC 26” bikes.
Outstanding - test winner
Superb - Test winner
"A textbook tourer! Handling, weight, stiffness, parts, workmanship and suspension are faultless. Test winner!" This was the verdict of the readers of MountainBIKE magazine, who awarded the title of "Bike of the Year" six times to the Nerve XC. In 2013 Canyon's most coveted touring full suspension bike will be continuing its triumphant run under a new name. The multiple award-winning 120mm suspension impresses with a premium and stiff alloy frame as well as innovative Canyon technology right down to the smallest detail. Anti-squat kinematic, internally routed cables and asymmetric seat stays gave the bike dream scores in all the tests.
The bike is also outstanding in terms of appearance and technology with its load-bearing hydro formed top tube. The rear triangle with its extremely durable radial bearings is highly responsive and delivers greater comfort and traction on every type of surface. The drive train neutral rear triangle and the precise handling guarantee fantastic control on even the steepest of descents. From alpine cross right through to trail riding - the Nerve AL is a true all-round weapon for every area of use.
Through Hydroforming we obtain optimum stiffness to weight ratios. A hot mix of oil and water is pressed through the initially round tubes. The tube is positioned in the mould whose shape it is supposed to take later on. The inner pressure ensures that the tube adapts to the outer form and allows it to gain its unmistakable appearance. In individual ‘reforming’ procedures we develop a frame which is optimised down to the smallest detail. This technique enables us to reduce the number of strengthening gussets or to considerably reduce their size. Thus, the frame achieves greater stability.
Tapered Steerers have been standard on Canyon road bikes for years now. Now the manufacturers of accessories offer fitting forks for mountain bikes. The Onepointfive bearing at the lower end doesn't bat an eyelid even under severe loads on blocked trails while the 1 1/8 inch bearing at the top keeps the weight even lower
Thanks to the Postmount-Standard on the rear wheel the bolts are now exclusively subjected to tensile and not shearing forces. This guarantees a higher level of safety of the wheel fixings. The alloy frame disperses the heat which is generated into the rear triangle. This guarantees high levels of stability under load.
Looks good, saves weight and easy to replace: Canyon's internally routed cables. The particular feature: Even when the cables are not under tension they support each other and therefore do not rattle inside the down tube. How does this work? Due to the crossed routing inside the frame. Thanks to the large access opening at the bottom of the down tube replacing cables is just child's play.
