Canyon


Even with the white stuff dumping on Europe’s bike parks and most popular riding spots, Canyon is still making big waves in the mountain bike world this December. Just one week after launching the latest iteration of their trail all-rounder, the Spectral, now it’s time for the return of the Torque, a new aluminium version of the Sender, as well as G5, a full line of Canyon-engineered handlebars, stems and grips made for gravity riding.


Modern cyclocross is defined by progression. With increasingly skilled bike handlers taking on more technically advanced courses, the sport is only getting faster. To reflect that progression, Canyon engineers set out to create a highly innovative, modern cross bike to give racers the edge when lining up for the holeshot.


At the height of the cyclocross season, Canyon can now proudly announce its new partnership with Beobank-Corendon effective from 1st January, 2018. The Belgian team will compete on the cross course aboard the new Inflite CF SLX, a bike engineered to meet the punishing demands of the modern sport.

Canyon is committed to providing its technical partners with the most advanced setups possible to deliver the very top level in performance. In exchange, its engineers and product managers profit from in-depth feedback from the world’s best riders, a process that flows directly into the development of future bikes.

When it comes to putting its products through the ultimate test, there can be no better candidate than Mathieu van der Poel. The Dutchman’s immense potential and aggressive riding style are a huge prospect for Canyon Founder & CEO, Roman Arnold: “Mathieu is quite simply the biggest talent in the sport right now. Watching him ride is something else, each time he competes he’s so committed, so skilful and rides with such passion. For all of us here at Canyon, it’s Pure Cycling, through and through.”

Van der Poel has targeted XC gold at the Tokyo Olympics in 2020, an objective that all at Canyon are driven to make a reality. The Dutchman will receive full support throughout the UCI XC0 World Cup season from 2018 onwards. After the cross season and away from Cross Country, Beobank-Corendon will also compete on the road, where riders will have a choice of Aeroad CF SLX and Ultimate CF SLX models, with the Speedmax CF SLX reserved for tests against the clock.

Beobank-Corendon riders make their debut on the Canyon Inflite CF SLX at the Grand Prix Sven Nys in Baal, Belgium on New Year’s Day.

Canyon, one of the world’s most innovative bicycle companies, has officially launched sales to consumers in the United States. Award-winning, German-engineered road, mountain, triathlon, and commuter bikes are now available direct-to-consumer from www.canyon.com with delivery to all 50 states. The first orders were processed yesterday and riders will receive their new bicycles within a matter of days.

Thirty years ago I started Canyon, selling parts from a trailer I brought to local races,” said CEO and Founder Roman Arnold. “Launching sales in the United States marks another great milestone for all of us in the Canyon family, from our design team to our engineers to our top professional riders, as we begin a new chapter of sharing our passion for cycling.”

The past few months have obviously been very intense integrating personnel, an ERP system, a CRM system and web software,” said Blair Clark, President of Canyon USA. “However, our team’s aptitude and can-do attitude is amazing. The employees are passionate about creating an emotional connection between our customers and our bikes. Our team demands the best results from one another and along the way wants to build the best bike company. Often when I’m out riding my Canyon, I get the same two questions: ‘When can I buy one?’ Or, ‘Where can I test one here?’ It’s incredibly rewarding now to be able to say, ‘Go to our website – you can order one of these legendary bikes today and you have 30 days to try it out for yourself.”

Canyon USA is based in Carlsbad, California with a logistics facility in nearby Chino. Canyon has always been at the forefront of engineering, design, and setting the highest quality standards in the industry. The Canyon R&D Department is currently made up of some 50 engineers, designers, product managers and quality controllers. Strength in these areas truly sets Canyon apart as a brand, with innovation and expertise as the top priorities in all processes, from research, to design, to production, to delivery. Canyon also rely on the world’s top professionals in every discipline as integral parts of the R&D process. Teams and athletes include CANYON//SRAM Racing, Movistar Team with Giro and Vuelta winner Nairo Quintana, Team Katusha–Alpecin with ITT World Champion Tony Martin, Ironman Triathlon World Champion Jan Frodeno, Leadville 100 Course Record holder Alban Lakata, and the new for 2017 Canyon Factory Downhill Team, led by Troy Brosnan.
