Grand Canyon AL 4.9

MBR, June

The Grand Canyon is easily the best-specced bike on test, as well as the lightest.

Spectral CF 8.0 EX - 5 Stars

Bike Radar, April

I simply can’t think of a better example of a modern, state-of-the-art trail bike — certainly not one at such an excellent value price, within a killer overall range.

A capable, fun, confident trail bike that verges towards the enduro end of the spectrum. Quite frankly, this bike is awesome.

Spectral CF 8.0 EX - Trail Bike of the Year

What Mountain Bike, 199

The same lightweight agility makes it a blast to hustle through any trails, and we simply can't think of a better example of a modern, state of the art trail bike - certainly not one at such an excellent value price, within a killer overall range.

Bike Radar, April

The best of the rest

Sender - It's incredibly hard to pick faults with the Sender.

Pinkbike, 04/2017

Canyon has simply sent the ball out of the park. This machine combines the best value, ride, sizing and build kit on the market; it only seems to have one competitor from the other German direct sale brand.

Strive AL 5.0 Race - 4 Stars

Bike Radar, March

The Strive’s ability to smooth the trail and carry speed continues to impress us

Sender CF 9.0 - DIRT100

The detailing, the sizing, the geometry, the silence, the price. Canyon have really pulled out a class bike here that sets it apart.

Exceed CF SLX 9.9 Pro Race Dangerous looks, comforting ride

Singletrack Magazine, 01.17

It’s the kind of bike that leaves you with few excuses on the start line, and it just goads you to go faster and faster on every ride.

The Sender is packed with ingenious innovations.

Sender CF Hottest downhill bike of 2016

bikeradar

A future world cup winner? It has the potential, that’s for sure. We’ll have to wait until 2017 to see if the perfect storm of man and machine can put it on the top step.

Strive CF 9.0 Race Big thumbs up

Flow Mountain Bike

The Strive successfully achieves the "two bikes in one" thing and Canyon are onto a good thing with the Shapeshifter. It's a seriously good bike for the dollars and out of the box it's ready to shred - a true modern enduro race bike.

Exceed CF SLX Handles well at speed but still agile for tight singletrack

AMB Magazine, 11.15

The bike feels comfortable at speed, be it pedalling fast on some 'schotterstrasse', flicking the bike from corner to corner through the forest, or following locals blindly down their steeper trails.

Strive CF 9.0 Race Outstanding Review

MBR, 08/2014

The cat’s out of the bag, and it’s damn near purr-fect.

Nerve AL 7.0 4.5 out of 5 stars.

MBUK, Summer

The Canyon is an easy bike to warm to, competent at everything you’re likely to throw at it on a big day out on the trails. It’s a very good trail bike at a price that’ll be hard to beat.

Grand Canyon AL 5.9W Test Winner - Women's Hardtail of the Year

MBR June 2014

The Grand Canyon AL oozes quality. The neat and stylish graphics and well-finished frame, the high-spec drivetrain, the good-quality fork and the overall light weight make this an allround great bike, which is just as happy going up as it is coming down.

Lux CF 7.9 Test Winner

MountainBIKE, 06/14

The lightweight Lux CF provides a great foundation for a racing full susser and a highly capable trail bike. With its wide-ranging capability, Canyon takes the win.

Spectral AL 9.9 EX Excellent Review

mtb-news.de

All in all, this is a very well thought out, high-end machine for a great price. […] The components on the 9.9 EX are second-to-none.

Spectral AL 9.0 EX 3rd / 4.5 out of 5

What Mountain Bike

Stunning value for a 'ticks every box' trail slayer. I had to check the price on Canyon's Spectral at least 5 times to believe it wasn't kidding on the cost.
