Just arrived at Singletrack Towers and taken straight out to play in the snow, it’s the Grand Canyon:ON 9 from Canyon, in a size Medium. Let’s take a closer look.
The Grand Canyon:ON range consists of an alloy hardtail frame with 120mm travel fork. There’s a choice of five models with the new Shimano EP8, plus one with the Shimano Steps E8000 motor. This Grand Canyon ON 9 is the top of the range model, with a Fox 34 Rhythm Grip fork.

Grand Canyon ON frees you to explore the world by bike. Featuring the same proven drive systems as our top-tier E-MTBs it triples your pedaling power and gives you more from every ride.Canyon Bikes
Shimano’s proven EP 8 motor and 630 Wh battery triple your pedaling power and provide up to 100 Km of riding. No mountain too steep. No ride too long.Canyon Bikes
The aluminium frames have size-dependent wheel sizing (29-inch wheels on M-L bikes, 27.5-inch wheels on XS-S), an integrated battery with anti-theft design, and a USB-C charging jack on the top tube.
You get an own brand dropper post, eBike specific saddle (this has a raised rear to it, to help with seated climbing, plus plenty of padding for comfort on your sit bones), and the seat post clamp is integrated into the frame.
The bike is designed to be comfortable to ride, with a neat and simple cockpit and not too aggressive riding position.
Brakes are Shimano Deore, with a four-pot version on the front and two-pot version rear. Both ends get 203mm rotors, but the rear is an eBike specific EM300 Steps one.
Schwalbe Nobby Nics are front and rear – and as we’ve got a Medium bike, they’re 29er wheels.
We combined the all-around performance of our bestselling Grand Canyon hardtail with Shimano’s game-changing new EP8 motor. The result is our flagship Grand Canyon ON 9. It’s the perfect e-MTB for your next foray into nature.Canyon
