Four piston brakes
The stuff dreams are made of, the Spectral: ON 9.0 is kitted out with the best equipment to keep the weight low and the fun factor high. A Shimano XTR groupset with powerful four piston brakes, DT Swiss HX1501 wheels and Fox Factory front and rear suspension are the icing on the cake on this highly capable e-MTB.
The Spectral CF 9.0 SL has a full carbon frame, with also a carbon rear triangle. Other parts such as the SRAM X1 Eagle Carbon crank, the Renthal Fat Var Lite Carbon handlebar, and the DT Swiss XMC 1200 Spline carbon rims are made of this light, strong, rigid material that at the same time also dampens well. That makes this Spectral a light but also really a comfortable bike that also offers a lot of power on pedaling.
The wheelbase of 1141 mm helps the bike’s stability on long, fast stretches, and you can throw a bike into the high berms with a smile. The berm will happily launch you and your bike with a big boost on exit. Great to feel the g-forces on your bike and yourself in this way. Also on steep descents and at much less high speed, it was easy to keep the bike in balance and steer through tighter turns.
In jumps, the bike left the ground very evenly, and in the air, the bike also gave a good feeling of confidence. The Fox Factory Float DPS EVOL rear shock and Fox Factory 34 Float on the front fork, handle landings perfectly. On an XC trail, you can lock the dampers so that you have a much stiffer rider, which also benefits the pedaling efficiency. There is no noticeable bounce in the rear shock during pedaling.
Smooth and wide range
The Canyon Spectral has the SRAM X01 Eagle 12s derailleur and trigger shifter that shifts sharply and smoothly. Even without a front derailleur this group offers more than enough range with a range of 10-50 on the SRAM XG-1295 Eagle cassette.
