Canyon (Germany) - Press Release: Speed, efficiency, outstanding control and capability across challenging terrain – the Neuron is the answer for riders seeking one trail bike that can do it all. A truly universal mountain bike, the Neuron range features options for everyone – including a kids’ Young Hero bike, highly robust aluminium models, and carbon bikes built for uncompromisingly high performance.
And fresh for 2021, the Neuron is getting a range of updates – including a whole new model, the high-end carbon fibre Neuron CF Ltd. Conceptualised in collaboration with DT Swiss and limited to a total 100 models worldwide, the bike features 140 mm of fork travel. The bike’s component list is also outstanding, with DT Swiss providing a 535 One-series fork and shock and superlight XMC1200 carbon wheels. Parts from SRAM and RaceFace round out the €4,999* package. Across the rest of the Neuron CF range, a wide selection of bikes feature new colours and refreshed component sets. For example, the CF 8 has been almost completely overhauled, now with a 140 mm Pike fork and Deluxe Select+ shock from RockShox, GX drivetrain and G2 brakes from SRAM, DT Swiss wheels, and Schwalbe Hans Dampf tyres.
Aluminium Neuron models feature 130 mm front and rear travel across the entire range for optimally balanced handling, with unisex models now fitted with one-by drivetrains with larger 32-tooth chainrings (WMN and Young Hero models keep their 30-tooth chainrings), as well as Schwalbe tyres. Several bikes will have new components – such as the Neuron AL 7 and Neuron AL 7 WMN, which newly have Shimano XT drivetrains and SLX brakes. Furthermore, the Neuron Young Hero is now available in two sizes – 2XS and XS – so more kids can get started on the trail.
All MY21 Neuron models will be available from 3 September, exclusively on Canyon's Website. The Neuron range begins with the €1,499 Neuron AL Young Hero*. AL models will be priced between €1,899-2,299*, and carbon-frame bikes will range from €2,799 to €5,599*.
