Canyon Trail Bikes

What is trail riding?

Trail riding is many things to many people. It’s a gateway to MTB with flowy green trails at trail centres and runs right through to railing berms on a budget and riding double black trails high in the alpine.
Hardtails rock a fork up front and no rear suspension. The Grand Canyon is the perfect companion for those every day adventures while the Stoic adds capability and confidence for more progressive riding.
Full-suspension bikes smooth out the rough stuff with the Neuron being the explorer’s choice and the Spectral being the ultimate all-rounder for local laps and trail shredding.
No two trails are the same. No two trail riders are the same. You define your ride.

Trail Bike

Whether you're riding a flowy singletrack, cruising through the countryside on a cross-country ride, or challenging yourself in a bike park, a trail bike provides a tonne of fun in any terrain.

The characteristics of a trail mountain bike

The sturdy frame, high-quality components, and low weight make the trail bike the ultimate all-rounder. From singletracks to bike park trails and even city rides, trail mountain bikes are ready for anything. Therefore, the bike is perfect for longer rides and guarantees fun on descents.

Trail bike: Full suspension or hardtail?

Trail bikes weigh between 12 and 16 kilograms, with a carbon or aluminium frame. The front suspension travel is between 120 and 160 millimetres. Hardtail bikes have a front suspension fork, are lighter, and less expensive than full suspension bikes. A full suspension trail bike provides more traction in corners.

  • Grand Canyon: Our Grand Canyon provides a great entry into the world of trails. This aluminium hardtail is agile and gives you a comfortable ride on many surfaces while you explore.
  • Stoic: Our Stoic is a hardtail but borrows elements of frame geometry from our trail bike, Spectral. This mountain bike is not afraid of technical trails and jump sessions.
  • Neuron: Trail bikes like the Neuron from Canyon are full-suspension all-rounders. With this bike, you can easily handle steep climbs and fast descents on your weekend ride.
  • Spectral: The Canyon Spectral has progressive geometry and lofty 160-millimetre suspension travel. With this bike, your possibilities are almost limitless.
  • Lux Trail: The Canyon Lux Trail is a lightweight trail bike with great pedalling efficiency. It easily manages even steep climbs and offers a well-balanced geometry for flowy descents.

27.5 or 29 inch wheels?

With MTBs, you have the choice between 27.5 and 29-inch wheels. The decision depends on the frame size, the intended use and personal preference.

When encountering numerous bumps and quick downhill sections, 29-inch wheels provide more stability, while riders on bikes with smaller wheels often have to lift the front wheel over obstacles. Smaller wheels provide more manoeuvrability in tight, technical sections. When changing direction, you can more easily move the rear wheel. Larger wheels are slightly heavier and less agile.
