Safety always comes first. That's why we test all frames with scientific support and reproduce precisely the loads which a bike must withstand both in static and dynamic tests. We test what the materials can withstand, how the frame behaves under specific loads and then draw our relevant conclusions. We apply a precise load on the bottom bracket and can then determine what leads to increased power and how frames can be optimised even further.
We have been running a test lab, which is unique in Germany and under the supervision of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Peter Kohmann, in cooperation with the University of Pforzheim for many years now.
This unique lab gives us the opportunity to simulate the loads a frame must withstand over several years in a very short time. This enables us to improve our frames even further and the tests continue even after series production has already begun.
We regularly put our bikes from the production line through elaborate tests in Koblenz and Pforzheim. In this way we can realise the outstanding quality of the bikes and are able to give a six year warranty on the frame with an easy conscience. In addition, before a bike leaves Canyon.Home it is also comprehensively checked by our experienced personnel. This is because we want your bike to reach you in perfect mechanical and optical condition.
