YOUR HOMETOWN HERO – CANYON INTRODUCE THE STOIC TO THEIR HARDTAIL LINE-UP
Last week when we swathe new Canyon Stoic, we immediately understood the concept that Canyon wanted to introduce with this new model.
A bike suitable for everyone, but ready to entertain us when we get home late from work. An hardtail, suitable for those who want to start with a limited budget, but also for who want a second bike perfect to learn new tricks near home.
The new Canyon Stoic has 6061-alloy frame, with progressive geometry and excellent components, 29" or 27.5" according to size, M-XL have 140 mm travel forks, while 2XS-S have 150 mm travel forks.
Ours is the Stoic 4 from 1799€, the top of the range mounted with the Rockshox Pike, Cockpit Canyon G5, braking system Guide T, Cassette and gearbox Sram NX and crankset Truvativ Descendant alloy.
Unfortunately snow has not yet allowed us to test it, but we will do it as soon as possible... snowy bike, lucky bike!

Having the best time on an MTB ride isn’t always dependent on how flash your gear is. Our all new Stoic is proof that you can rip down your favourite trails with a huge grin on your face- without the words ‘kinematic’ or ‘shock setting’ ever crossing your mind. We started out wanting to produce a versatile, capable hardtail to take on anything, without it breaking the bank. A bike that makes sense whether you happen to be a young rider on a budget, a newcomer wanting to dive into the ‘gnarlier’ end of MTB, or a seasoned shredder looking for a fun hardtail to add to your stable. What we ended up with is an all-new, bombproof alloy hardtail, featuring progressive geometry, and rock-solid components. It’s available in a huge size range, with 29-inch wheels for taller riders and a 650B setup for shorter riders.
The Stoic keeps things fun- whether pushing limits on steep technical trails, playing around at the local pumptrack or just riding through your neighbourhood. Sitting among our Category 4 quiver of bikes, it’s been tested and approved to withstand the same punishment as our full blown enduro rigs. Combine this with the low-slung top tube and low maintenance design, and you wind up with a tough and reliable rig that’s the perfect training buddy as hone your riding skills.
The Stoic line-up features three models. All 29er options (sizes M-XL) are fitted with 140mm travel forks and all 27.5 wheeled bikes (2XS-S) get 150mm travel forks. At €799* the Stoic 2 is the most affordable option, but it doesn’t scrimp on quality. Featuring the same burly 6061-alloy frame as the rest of the range, the ever-reliable Shimano Deore drivetrain and the sturdy SR Suntour XCR 34 Air fork. The mid-range option, the Stoic 3, costs €1,199* and has everything a trail bike needs, including an Iridium dropper post, wide-range SRAM SX Eagle drivetrain and a Rockshox Recon RL fork. At the top of the tree sits the Stoic 4 at €1799*. Fitted with parts the discerning hardtail rider will appreciate, including the bump-gobbling Rockshox Pike fork and swank Canyon G5 cockpit, our top-shelf Stoic punches way above its weight out on the trail.
All 3 models will be available from December 8th at canyon.com**
