Here is Spectral:ON, the newCanyon e-MTB!
Canyon aim high: they did not want to create just any e-bike but the goal from the start was to engineer an e-MTB with true mountain bike trail performance, by combining the latest in drive technologies with features that put the rider in the foreground.
A 29” wheel and 2.5” tyre hooked to a 30 mm rim on the front rim pairs with a 27.5” rear running fatter 2.8” rubber bedded onto a 35 mm rim for pinpoint accuracy in the turns and tenacious amounts of traction when climbing.
Canyon’s balanced out the extra weight of the drive system with a suspension setup that’s light and poppy for getting down to business on the fun stuff. The Spectral:ON is unmatched when it comes to natural and dynamic riding performance.
The semi-integrated battery configuration on the Spectral:ON is especially designed to make it super quick and easy to swap out with a spare while you ride so you can double the distance and double the fun. Compact and weighing just 2.6 kg, simply stow the battery in your pack and carry on riding.
The smaller size of the Steps E8000 system has ollowed to shape the geometry around the rider, not the motor, and build the Spectral:ON with short 430 mm chainstays for outstanding handling agility. Short 165 mm Shimano cranks on all models also reduce the chance of pedal strikes when climbing the steepest tech.
Some riders prefer to set-and-forget, others like to optimise their setups to whatever’s on the menu that day. The Geo Adjust shifts BB height by 11 mm and slackens head and seat tube angles, enabling the rider to dial their bike for all-round or more downhill-based riding in a few simple steps.
Steeper climbs, more time sat down. Canyon feels a different approach to riding requires a different approach to saddle design, so they decided to build the SD:ON! It features increased rear support to keep the rider locked in position when climbing and a broad nose angled down for when things get silly steep.
Buying the right e-MTB doesn’t have to be a challenge, Canyon is here to help you every step of the way. Get in contact with the expert e-bike service team, visit the Koblenz Showroom or find Canyon at an event near you to see the Spectral:ON up-close and go for a test ride.
