Best-Selling Canyon Mountain Bike - Grand Canyon MY21 editions are here
It’s the best-selling mountain bike in the Canyon portfolio and has long proven the first choice for beginning mountain bikers and experienced trail riders alike: On Tuesday, July 14, the Grand Canyon hardtail will start its 2021 model year and, with prices ranging from 599 to 1,799 euros*, will prove the ticket to adventure for a wide range of riders.
For the first time, the Grand Canyon will be offered in 27.5”-wheeled “Young Hero” versions that comfortably fit riders between 8 and 12 years of age. Two aluminium frames are utilized across the entire 10-model bike line. Grand Canyon Young Hero, Grand Canyon 5 and Grand Canyon 6 rely on the proven "AL" frame, while Grand Canyon 7 and above sport the lighter "AL SL" frame. All “AL SL” frames are also equipped with rear through-axles and dropper posts. Grand Canyon 5, 6, 7 and 8 models are offered in parallel as unisex and WMN versions. All women's bikes are not only equipped with a modified cockpit and special saddle, but also independent, women’s-specific frame geometry.
Another first—every 2021 Grand Canyon features a "one-by" drivetrain and completely forgoes a front derailleur mount. Both Shimano and SRAM single-ring options are available. The Grand Canyon Young Hero features a 1x11 drivetrain. All other models come equipped with 1x12 drivetrains, including Shimano's new Deore group. As far as suspension forks are concerned, Grand Canyon Young Hero, 5 and 6 models sport 100 mm at the front, while upper-end models beginning with the Grand Canyon 7, feature 120 mm of front suspension travel.
The new Grand Canyon Young Hero comes in both 2XS and XS frame sizes. WMN models are available in four sizes 2XS, XS, S and M, while unisex versions can be had in five sizes: XS, S, M, L and XL. To give riders of all heights the same great feeling on the Grand Canyon, Canyon continues to rely on the proven wheel size split: 650B wheels are included in the WMN sizes 2XS-S and the unisex sizes XS and S also come in 27.5". All frame sizes above roll on large Twenty-niner wheels.
Model-year 2021 Grand Canyons will be available exclusively on canyon.com from Tuesday, 14 July.
