The new Canyon Spectral CF 8 CLLCTV 2022 runs a mullet setup with a 29" wheel upfront and smaller 27.5" wheel at the rear. Here's our exclusive first ride review!

  1. Quiet
  2. Comfortable pedalling position and drive-neutral rear suspension
  3. Confidence-inspiring and agile
  1. Mullet version only available with coil shock
  2. Rear end lacks reserves with coil shock
  3. Long seat tube restricts freedom of movement
  4. Tool mount only with proprietary top tube bag

Buy if... You prefer excellent geometry and suspension over a top-shelf kit list

  2. Impressive suspension platform
  3. excellent pedalling
  1. Tall head tube
  2. Dropper doesnt quite match the quality of the rest of the bike
