The Pure Cycling Chainguide Picture 1 is compatible with all of the following models:

• Nerve AM (2011 onwards)
• All Strive models until including model year 2015
• Torque (2009 onwards, including Torque EX)
• Torque FRX (2012 onwards)

From model year 2016 there will be no compatibility for this type of chainguide.

The Canyon Cage Canyon Cageguide E 168 Picture 2 is compatible with all of the following models:

• Spectral AL from model year 2014 and Spectral CF from model year 2015
• Strive from model year 2015

The Canyon Cage Canyon Cageguide E 168 can only be used on 2X drivetrains with two chainrings at the front. This chainguide cannot be used with Torque FRX models built prior to model year 2012.

Torque DHX models from 2014 include ISCG05 mounts. These frames are not designed to be used with front derailleurs.

For chainguides from other manufacturers, the following applies:
Canyon bikes with ISCG05 and E-Type (Torque ES, FR, EX, DHX and the Strive) adapter mounts will not accept other types of chainguide or derailleur as the position of the mounts disrupt the movement of the derailleur. All Nerve AM models are also incompatible with other chainguides due to positioning problems.

Torque FR and ES models from 2007 and 2008 can only take other types of chainguide if they are attached to the upper side of the bottom bracket clamp. No Canyon frames (disregarding the Torque DHX) have ISCG05 or ISCG03 mounts directly on the frames themselves. It is not possible to adapt ISCG05 or ISCG03 mounts to accept other standards.
