Big news from the Canyon headquarter: For trials and mountain bike professional Fabio Wibmer, 2020 marks the beginning of a new era. With three brand-new Canyon bikes, “The Whipmer” found something very special under his Christmas tree, as these rides will be his first choice for even more breathtaking bike action and video shoots to come.
Next to the Sender and the Torque we equipped the Austrian prodigy with a new trials bike, exclusively designed for him. “I am very happy to have found a new partner in Canyon, which supplies me not only with an enduro and a downhill bike, but also with a trials bike, and the quality of the Canyon bikes is self-explanatory,” adds the young bike all-rounder.
At only 24 years of age, his big lines and his amazing tricks, have already made Fabio Wibmer a big name in the bike scene due to his fearless appearance. This past year alone, he stopped the bike world in their tracks with two breathtaking video projects: “Wibmer’s Law” and the third installment of the “Urban Freeride Lives” series pushed the visits of his YouTube-channel to incredible heights.
“I am extremely pleased to welcome Fabio to Canyon”, says Roman Arnold, founder and CEO of Canyon Bicycles. “He is an extraordinary character, with a calm demeanor that belies an incredible work ethic coupled with maximum fun on the bike. It is exactly this spirit that engages such a huge audience, that includes me!”
Fabio will not only be riding Canyon bikes, his word and opinion will carry weight within our R&D department and also be of importance for future projects: “I am looking forward to our close cooperation in the development of new products such as a trial bike designed especially for Fabio, but also to developing the bikes throughout our Gravity world,” continues Roman.
