Lux Trail vs. Neuron Differences between the Lux Trail and the Neuron trail bikes.

Trail bikes are some of the most versatile and capable mountain bikes out there. The geometry of trail bikes sits in the sweet spot between cross-country and enduro. It’s more relaxed than full-blown cross-country bikes but a heavier frame and more forgiving spec for the gnarly terrain you might find underneath your wheels.

With the launch of the new Lux Trail, there’s finally an offering that makes no compromises on flat-line speed and trail capability.

Lux Trail vs. Neuron The Canyon Neuron can help you feel confident on jumps and rocky terrain.

What’s the difference between the Lux Trail and the Neuron?

Lightweight, fast, efficient—the new Lux Trail is, first and foremost, a cross-country bike. It’s an ultralight rocket designed to help you cover as many miles as possible as quickly as possible. Unlike traditional “XC” bikes, however, the Lux Trail gives you an extra dose of downhill control courtesy of a bit more suspension travel (120 millimeters up front and 110 millimeters out back), more downhill-friendly frame geometry, and components that boost your control (a burlier fork, dropper seatpost, wider bars and tires, etc.). The current catchphrase for everything you just read is “downcountry”, as in, “part downhill, part cross country”. You can race the Lux Trail in an XC event, but it’s also perfectly suited to shattering your own personal records on that heinously long and steep ride where a “normal” XC bike can feel a bit under gunned.

The Neuron, on the other hand, is the quintessential trail bike. Where the Lux Trail is obsessed with gobbling as many miles as quickly as possible, the Neuron is perfect for days spent exploring the backcountry. The Neuron is a very competent climber, but with its upright, more relaxed seated position the Neuron’s focus is really on all-day adventure with. The Neuron’s extra front and rear suspension travel also give you more margin for error when the trails get rowdy.
