Suspension, equipment, and geometry open the door for the Canyon Spectral CF 8.0 to the enduro family - as demonstrated by the practical test with the all-mountain on the grippy 2.6-inch tires.

The KIS system undoubtedly has a big influence on the handling of the Canyon Spectral. The system is integrated in a sleek manner and can be easily adjusted, but at the moment it's not as easy to remove. We were surprised by this...

  1. successful and inconspicuous integration
  2. easy adjustment
  3. stabilizes steering on rough straightaways
