Canyon has refreshed its Lux platform for 2022, with the launch of the new Lux World Cup cross-country full-suspension mountain bike.
The Lux World Cup features 100mm of suspension travel front and rear, and runs on 29in wheels .
It sits alongside the Lux Trail with 120mm suspension travel and a more burly build kit, announced in August 2021 , which saw Canyon adapt the platform for the downcountry discipline that bridges the gap between cross-country and trail .
The brand says efficiency, performance and speed were the key attributes it paid attention to in its design, purposely optimised for cross-country racing .
Canyon has also worked hard to cut the weight down and the Lux World Cup will be the first Lux to feature Canyon’s top-flight CFR carbon construction. Canyon will also offer a second-tier CF-level frame, but there won’t be a CF SLX offering. CF SLX was nominally Canyon’s premium carbon layup, which the CFR now supersedes.
Like many cross-country race bikes , Canyon has trundled down the integration route with a revised front-end aesthetic that hides the cables and hydraulic hoses through a proprietary headset cover.
