Canyon has beefed up its family of Spectral trail bikes with options that should please just about every mountain biker. There's a new top-end carbon bike, budget-friendly alloy versions, more 29ers, new 27.5" models, and even a mixed wheel "mullet" version that looks ready to party. Read on for the complete details from Canyon.
In 2020, Canyon launched the all-new Spectral 29 CF series. It's one of the most well-rounded trail bikes we've ridden. But as versatile as the Spectral 29 CF is, some people want to rock a different wheel size or simply want the ability to choose between carbon and aluminum frames. That’s why Canyon is unveiling a complete line of Spectral trail bikes—now available in both carbon and aluminum, and in every wheel size (29er, 27.5, as well as one Mullet option).

The special-edition Specitral Mullet also features a coil shock.
Let’s start with the wheel size bit. The Spectral family now includes full 29ers and 27.5bikes—in both alloy and carbon—as well as one carbon “Mullet” mixed-wheel size model. Looking for max speed and stability? The Spectral 29 is still the most versatile ride-anything-anywhere bike. And it's no clumsy meat plow of a wagon wheeler—Canyon intentionally kept the rear end short and the geo nicely balanced so that the bike retains a killer degree of pop and playfulness.

Not sold on big wheels? The Spectral 27.5 should fit the bill.
The Spectral 27.5 is a great choice for riders looking for a nimble trail bike that doubles as a jump machine. Finally, if you want both the rollover of a 29er and that shorter 27.5 rear end, there is the Mullet option.

The Spectral 29 AL 6 packs a lot of value into its $3,500 alloy chassis.
In the name of making true trail performance available to every rider, regardless of budget, Spectral AL models are now built around a brand-new alloy frame engineered to feel as close to the CF chassis as possible on the trail. To get it done, the AL uses advanced alloy-specific manufacturing processes and design innovations. At just over 3 kg, the frame weighs virtually the same as the previous Spectral AL, all while improving stiffness, handling, and performance across the board.

The Spectral CFR is light, well-spec'd and expensive.
For riders who demand the very best, Canyon is introducing a CFR flagship model. The Spectral CFR takes no-holds-barred approach to design, engineering, and equipment,cleaving a huge 300 grams from the already-lightweight Spectral CF with no drop-off in stiffness or strength. Add in world-class components like carbon DT Swiss wheels, Shimano XTR shifting, and FOX Float X Factory suspension, and the CFR surges up the climbs and feels even more agile, more precise. A truly top-shelf tail bike in every sense of the word.

The new Spectral family also has something to offer for younger riders too, with the Spectral Young Hero ($2,299). This is the mountain bike we all wished we could have had as kids. It’s suitable for riders from 4’9” to 5’3”, and with a rock-solid spec that pulls no punches. With slightly less travel than the adult bike (150 mm front, 140 mm rear) the Spectral Young Hero also has a trick up its sleeve–kinematics designed specifically for lighter riders, letting them get the most from their suspension travel.
