The ultimate trail-taming tool, the Spectral is ready to take you all over the mountain and strikes the ideal balance between the Nerve’s all-roundedness and the big-hitting enduro performance of the Strive. The low-slung bottom bracket puts you in the middle of the action, while compact chainstays and an extended front centre guarantee both agile and stable handling so you can always hold the right line. 140 mm of plush rear travel allows you to maintain the flow on any trail and stay in full control down sketchy descents.
Thanks to impressive anti-squat performance, the Spectral efficiently gets the power down on the ground to make light work of long climbs. Lightweight 27.5” wheels ensure both handling agility and fast-rolling performance. The frame’s clean lines are a clear signal of what the Spectral is made for - finding the flow down any trail and exploring new terrain. Just kit up and ride off. With the Spectral, you’re ready for the next all-mountain raid.
Steering precision and handling accuracy are key when riding. Thanks to the Tapered Steerer, both are guaranteed. The larger diameter of the lower bearing creates a more stable platform, while also accepting tapered fork shafts. As a result, you get a more responsive front end under braking and through corners.
The special layout of the kinematic joints and levers ensures that the various forces eliminate each other. This suppresses squat without the suspension losing any of its sensitive response. The rear triangle works sensitively without power loss and offers comfort and traction.
Thanks to the Post-Mount brake socket at the rear wheel, we no longer need an adapter and connecting bolts. This not only saves weight but also simplifies the adjustment of the brakes.
The Canyon Through Axle system delivers maximum rigidity to the rear wheel with its 12 mm through axle. Unlike other through axle systems, the rear wheel is mounted fully on the dropout which means that the wheel is quicker and easier to fit and remove.
