CANYON LUX TRAIL
THE BRAND NEW LUX TRAIL – CANYON’S ULTRA-CAPABLE XC BIKE
A completely redesigned XC bike for when the race goes well beyond the tape
Born from an unrelenting need to push our limits, the completely redesigned Lux Trail redefines what can be done on an XC bike. Speed is at the heart of the Lux Trail and now riders can make that speed last all day long and get the confidence to push their limits on rough and demanding endurance trails. This is maximum speed over maximum distances.
The Lux Trail is a completely new bike that’s been entirely redesigned from the bottom up. It shares DNA with the race proven Lux World Cup, but while that bike is all about chasing wins between the tape, the Lux Trail is made for chasing records beyond the tape.
On paper, the Lux Trail is a 120 mm 29er with 115 mm of rear suspension, but when clipped in, those numbers feel completely different. Teaming up these stats with the bike’s new kinematics and rear suspension design, there’s instant responsiveness on the climbs and levels of control and manoeuvrability on the descents that makes riders choose the faster line.
The Lux Trail’s geometry is central to the bike's efficiency and capabilities as it pushes for the most comfortable and fatigue-reducing ride possible. A steep seat tube holds the rider in a powerful position to attack climbs, while the slack head angle puts them in full control for tackling technical descents.
Making the seat tube angle steeper by 1.5° to 76° puts the rider in a more upright position that helps make long rides more comfortable. This steep seat tube also puts the rider in a more efficient position above the bottom bracket which helps improve the power transfer from the pedals to the trail. Having the rider’s weight in the right place keeps the front wheel planted on climbs. Slackening the head angle by 0.5° to 67° is all about control at high speeds and on steep downhill descents.
Carbon frames only
At the core of these impressive numbers is our approach to creating carbon frames. CFR frame construction sees thin layers of expertly crafted carbon strategically layered to give robust support where you need it and to make impressive weight savings elsewhere. These are the frames that our elite riders race at the pinnacle of the sport. CF models are geared towards privateer and weekend racers as they deliver the essence of CFR frames in a more accessible package.
Details make the difference
Size specific shock tunings, dropper post travel, and cockpit dimensions make the Lux Trail ready to race right out of the box. Lux Trail CFR models come with an integrated carbon Trail Cockpit, with XS frames getting a size specific size.
Riders also need to maintain themselves for top performance on epic rides. Unlike others in this category, every Lux Trail holds two water bottles inside the frame, so riders can leave their hydration packs at home on long XC rides.
