Nerve XC 8.0
Comfy and playful, the Nerve XC 8.0 is the jewel in the crown of XC 26” bikes in this price range.
The Nerve XC 8.0 is very sturdy bike, but at the same time, it’s fast and precise when changing tracks, which is delightful. So light and well equipped, the Nerve XC 8.0 is the best mountain bike in its group. This bike is capable of excelling on technical trails, and still performs well on rolling tracks. It can adapt to every type of terrain/riding.
Bike’s tester was amazed by the comfort of the bike: “This exercise which was so difficult for the two other hard tails was so easy for the Canyon…” The bends and the little jumps while going downhill really make you appreciate the superb handling of the bike. The tester was really captivated by the performance, his elbows sticking out, he felt like an enduro pilot!
The tester was also amazed by the rear shock: “The Fox Performance rear shock really deserves its name, and it offers scintillating responsiveness. The entire bike coped admirably with the most difficult parts of the test. The bike is a sheer joy to ride".
With its comfort, its equipment, its great appearance and its playful handling, the Nerve XC 8.0 is an excellent choice for those who prefer to do without those 29" bikes.
