New Canyon Neuron Carbon Models Revealed

by 5

The popular Canyon Neuron frame remains the same, but gets new build kit – and, importantly, there’s stock available to buy right now.

For this year there will be four models, one of which is a women’s model with women-specific contact points. The suspension travel on all four models is 140 mm up front and 130 mm at the rear. Smaller Neuron bikes up to size S come with 27.5-inch wheels, while sizes M and up are exclusively available with 29-inch wheels. This year, all four models come with dropper posts.

Canyon Neuron CF 8 and Neuron CF 8 WMN

  • £2,999

These models are your entry into the Neuron Carbon range, with FOX 34 Float Performance forks and FOX Float Performance DPS dampers, Shimano SLX 1×12 drivetrain and SLX brakes. DT Swiss XM 1700 alloy wheelset completes an impressive trail package.

Canyon Neuron CF 9

  • £3,999

While the rear suspension uses the same FOX Float Performance DPS damper as the model below, the front end features the FOX 34 Float Performance Elite. You also get a full Shimano XT 1×12 groupset and four-piston brake calipers, lighter DT Swiss XMC 1700 carbon wheels with trail-proven Schwalbe tyres.

Canyon Neuron CF 9 SL

  • £4,899

This top spec build comes with FOX Factory suspension, wireless SRAM GX AXS shifting (which for under £5k is pretty impressive), SRAM Code RSC brakes with 180 mm rotors, and DT Swiss XMC 1501 carbon wheels. The cockpit is made up of a Race Face Turbine stem and Race Face Next carbon handlebars in 740 or 760 mm width depending on frame size. The Neuron CF 9 SL tips the scales at at 12.9 kg in a size M.

Exploring new places and new trails, just hopping on your bike and venturing into the unknown: That is what “the great escape” is all about. Break the routine and just enjoy nature. Or take on that big adventure in the mountains. “The great escape” is whatever you want it to be. With Canyon’s versatile trail and touring bike Neuron, mountain bikers are all set for the next adventure.

The new Neuron CF models are perfect for adventurers and trail riders looking for a versatile do-it-all bike for anything ranging from quick after-work trail sessions to multi-day tours and extended mountain adventures – and their very own “great escape” from the daily routine, whether it’s just a quick breath of fresh air or a full-fledged trail expedition. The Neuron is Canyon’s touring-friendly do-it-all MTB, positioned between the still versatile but more robust and downhill-oriented Spectral and the race-ready lightweight climbing machine Lux.

    Sensible pricing on the CF 9. A bit of a change from some of the astronomical numbers I’ve seen lately from some brands.

    Nice bikes, nice prices but the reach on the XL is only 473mm. It’s basically a BMX.

    Yeah, just seen the head angle and reach numbers on their website. A bit last gen tbh.

    Everyone always seems to miss the point with the Neuron. Even the PR guff states that it’s supposed to sit between the Lux and the Spectral as an all rounder trail / touring bike.

    If they increased the reach and slackened the head angle, you are about 10mm of travel away from a Spectral. What would be the point?

    I own a Neuron and on some downhills, I’d prefer long, low, slack. But, on a 50k loop around the Peak District, the Neuron is just the tool for the job and that’s my type of riding.

    It’s mostly that the bike gets taller much more than it gets longer, that’s pretty throwback stuff. The XL’s got 40mm more seatpost than the L, but only 20mm more reach. So the medium is pretty conservative but the XL is just plain short. Also makes it harder to size up.
