The Spectral 125 CF 7 is a mid-travel trail bike made by the brand Canyon, that combines the toughness of the Spectral 29 with the weight savings of their shorter-travel models. Its frame is made of high-end Carbon with an excellent stiffness-to-weight ratio. The bike uses a RockShox Pike Select+ fork with 140mm of travel and a RockShox Deluxe Select+ shock, providing a buttery-smooth experience on tough terrain. Other top-notch components include SRAM Code RS brakes, SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed shifters and rear derailleur, and DT Swiss M1900 XD wheels with Maxxis tires. Weighing in at a good weight in this class, this bike is perfect for playful, but tough, trail riding.

The Canyon Spectral 125 CF 9 combines little travel and a progressive geometry. How did it fare in our 2022 trail bike group test?

  1. Provides more suspension travel and high confidence
  2. Direct handling and firm suspension
  3. neutral power transfer uphill
  1. Tires do not match the potential of the bike
  2. Requires an experienced pilot

In our Canyon Spectral 125 CF8 review, we found its confidence inspiring and can ride terrain we usually don’t think about taking a 125mm bike in. Learn more!

  1. Poppy, playful geometry
  2. Progressive leverage curve
  3. Just a fun all around bike
  4. Quality, headache free components


Tom Marvin

The Spectral 125 is a hooligan of a bike that encourages you to try things you might otherwise not dare

  1. Aggressive shape
  2. super-fun personality
  3. frame easy to live with
  1. Sluggish at low speed on mellow terrain
  2. not a sofa-like ride
  3. thin tyres


Alan Muldoon

The Canyon Spectral 125 is a short-travel 29er trail bike that's perfect for spicing up your local trails - but is it too niche?

  1. Tight responsive handling that rewards riders who want to engage with the terrain. Top quality build kit. Low-slung frame design looks killer. Niche never looked so mainstream
  1. Needs an EXO+ casing rear tyre. Not much lighter than a 150mm bike


Ryan Palmer

Enduro speed meets trail-bike pop

  1. Long, slack geometry can be cumbersome on technical climbs
  2. Lacks small bump sensitivity
  3. Not the most space for water

The new 2022 Canyon Spectral 125 CF9 aims to be a progressive trail bike, continuing the success of the Spectral platform. We put it to the test.

  1. clean look and proven details
  2. freedom of movement on the descents
  3. firm rear suspension, offering lots of pop and reserves
  1. tires don't do justice to the bike's potential

Moritz Zimmermann

The new Canyon Spectral 125 is a progressive, exciting, and bold trail bike that is also the logical consequence of development in this segment. The Spectral 125 does not aim to be an all-rounder from trail to enduro, even if one...

Arne Koop

The Canyon Spectral 125 impresses with its downhill-oriented geometry, excellent equipment, and direct handling. Anyone looking for a short-travel trail bike that provides a lot of stability and wants to jump off every edge will find it here...

  1. Downhill-oriented enduro geometry
  2. Playful and direct handling
  3. Drive-neutral rear suspension and good riding position
  4. Excellent equipment
  1. Stiff, somewhat uncomfortable rear suspension
  2. Discrepancy between geometry and suspension travel
