Quality is key – that’s why the Canyon team of engineers uses the most progressive development and testing methods to make our bikes the safest and best performing ones in the world. Every bike is developed, assembled and test-ridden by us here in Canyon.Home – all under one roof. And if that weren't enough, all safety relevant parts such as carbon forks are put through an intensive test using a CT scannerin Canyon's unique, state-of-the-art in-house test lab.
We are thus able to recognize potential to optimize tube wall thickness and by means of a systematic optimization of design can discover potential to achieve weight reductions leading to a quality of finished product not hitherto achieved. In addition, during the development process the feedback received from the pro scene flows directly back into the current manufacturing processes, therefore it is not without reason that pro cycling is a key part of Canyon.
The CT scanner will in future also be used in the provision of customer and after-sales service with the testing of customers’ cycles (frame and fork) for damage after crashes and/or collisions and for the evaluation of such damage.
Canyon puts every carbon fork through its paces before it’s fitted. Why?
The narrow tolerances that are typical in the manufacture of carbon products make these tests necessary. We want to offer the customer the best possible product and this requires alongside characteristics such as stiffness, weight and comfort most definitely the maintenance of safety for our customers. For us to be able to guarantee all this quality control is an immensely important factor.
What tests are conducted on the fork?
All carbon forks are firstly put through an intensive X-ray examination.
In the event that any abnormalities are detected in the fabric, a more extensive inspection of the fork is carried out using a CT scan before it is passed on to our assembly plant. We thereby significantly increase the level of component safety and markedly reduce the risks for our customers.
What other roles does the CT scanner play?
Alongside its role in quality control, the CT plays a major part in the development of components. The knowledge and experience gained in the tests is exchanged in close cooperation with the manufacturers in order to consistently improve quality.
