EMBARGO UNTIL MAY 9, 2023, 11 AM (CET) — What a time to be alive! Just a few years back every e-mountain bike came with an asterisk. If a bike was great to ride it had limited range. If it had a huge battery, riders could kiss the handling goodbye. Now things are different. The next generation of Canyon e-mountain bikes come with long-range batteries, more powerful motors, stronger frames, and the same grin-inducing handling Canyon mountain bikes are famous for.
The new Grand Canyon:ON, Strive:ON and Torque:ON, come together to offer up dream bikes for many types of e-MTB riders. From exploring local trails and seeking out new adventures to running laps at the bike park and racing at the highest level, Canyon put their focus on both performance and fun so e-MTB riders can hit the trails Fully Charged.
For many, a great e-MTB can be a first-class ticket to adventure. The Grand Canyon:ON takes riders further and faster to explore new trails and take on challenges that might’ve seemed too daunting without a little pedal assist. The comfortable and capable geometry of Canyon’s most accessible e-MTB combines with a powerful Bosch motor and long range 625 or 750 Wh batteries to make a versatile hardtail that’s a joy to ride. The frame puts riders in a comfortable position for full days out on the bike and the 29” wheels and 120 mm of suspension make chunky trails a breeze. The Bosch interface is simple to use and makes this the perfect bike for everything from daily commutes to weekends in the foothills.
Built for the burly stages of E-Enduro, the Strive:ON brings power and precision to the climbs along with all-out speed and handling on the descents. The progressive geometry, dialled 160mm rear suspension, and race-ready carbon chassis are designed around the Bosch Performance Line CX and CX Race motors with 600 watts of peak power, rapid motor response and sustained torque delivery. Large 625 or 750 Wh batteries let riders choose between lower weight or longer range depending on the day, and mullet wheels (29” up front and 27.5” in the back) pair perfectly with a low centre of gravity and high-speed stability to keep the bike agile and manoeuvrable through tight technical sections. It may be made to race stages, but anyone that rides on the limit will love the Strive:ON.
Finally, the Torque:ON. Hitting lap after lap in zones where no shuttle would dare drive or saving time skipping the lift line, the new Torque:ON CF is an uncompromising freeride machine. The same Canyon-designed, industry-leading 720 and 900 Wh batteries used by the Spectral:ON integrate seamlessly into a new carbon chassis that sets the standard for what a long travel e-MTB can do. The Torque:ON’s 180 mm fork, 175 mm rear shock and mullet wheels team up with a long and slack, bombproof carbon frame so riders can boost the jumps, plough the bumps and then power back up for more. And with an innovative new water bottle position, nestled snuggly between a split top tube to allow space for the gravity optimised rear suspension layout, riders can keep sessioning without a pack weighing them down.
These three new Canyon e-mountain bikes will be available to order on Tuesday May 9, 2023 at canyon.com
