KOBLENZ, GERMANY; JULY 18, 2022 | EMBARGO UNTIL JULY 19, 2022, 11 AM (CEST) — What do you get when you combine hard-charging enduro geometry with a 140 mm-travel fork and a playful short-travel chassis? Answer: the Spectral 125. An absolute ripper of a bike designed to be thrashed on the descents while having enough poise and efficiency to dance back up the climbs. Introduced at the beginning of 2022, the platform has quickly forged a reputation as an ultra-capable short travel weapon that loves nothing more than to get a little rowdy on the trail. And today we welcome a new model to the line-up, the Spectral 125 CF LTD.


Assuming position at the top of the class, the Spectral 125 CF LTD comes with a fully loaded spec. But we’re not just talking about bling here, we’re talking brains too. The innovative RockShox Flight Attendant System enables the Spectral 125’s suspension to read the trail and gradient rolling under its tyres. The RockShox Pike Ultimate FA fork and Super Deluxe Ultimate FA shock take these readings and automatically adjust compression settings to provide the optimal setup on any terrain, in real time. No reaching for adjusters, no wondering whether you left your compression lever closed as you drop into a descent. The Spectral 125 CF LTD takes care of the details – so riders can focus on the trail ahead.

Suspension wizardry aside, the Spectral 125 CF LTD has a few more tricks up its sleeve. The new model’s component list meets dream bike standards on all fronts. A SRAM X01 AXS wireless groupset takes care of shifting duties and the RockShox AXS Reverb dropper post completes the wireless package. With high stiffness levels and low weight, the DT Swiss XMC 1501 wheelset allows riders to accelerate hard while having more than enough durability for full gas trail riding. All while staying in complete control, thanks to SRAM’s powerful Code RSC brakes and grippy Maxxis rubber.


The finishing touch is an exclusive artwork for this very special bike. The Spectral 125 CF LTD is the only model in the range to be painted in a droolworthy black and gold colourway.

The Spectral 125 CF LTD is available now, exclusively on canyon.com.
