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


Marc Strucken

With the Spectral 125 CF LTD, Canyon is stepping up their game in the trail bike category. Keeping the 140mm fork and a 125mm rear suspension, the new addition is the RockShox Flight Attendant System.
