The redesigned Canyon Spectral:ON CF 8 is a high-value electric mountain bike with an excellent well-rounded on-trail performance. With a carbon frame, mixed wheels, 155/150mm of travel, and a modern trail riding geometry, this bike climbs well and descends...

  1. Reasonably priced
  2. Great build for the price
  3. 900Wh battery-massive range
  4. Well-rounded performance
  5. Confident descender
  1. Motor/battery bulge reduces clearance
  2. Non-e-bike specific fork
  3. Should come with beefier tires


Alan Muldoon

The Spectrail:ON CFR electric mountain bike offers increased range and capability plus a lively and dynamic ride feel

  1. Lively, dynamic ride charastics, even with the 900Wh battery. Increased capability and range. Sleek design. Choose the between 720Wh or 900Wh batteries
  1. Thin casing tyres simply don’t cut it. More steps involved to remove the battery. Shimano EP8 motor rattles when coasting.

Julian Schwede

Canyon have introduced the latest iteration of the Spectral:ON eMTB with a 900 Wh battery, Shimano EP8 motor and 150 mm travel. We tested the flagship CFR LTD model for you.

  1. successful integration of the large battery
  2. minimalist, tidy cockpit
  3. successful form and design language
  4. nimble and playful
  1. Flight attendant does not bring any added value to this bike
  2. Bike becomes unstable at high speeds
  3. Pedal strikes
  4. Prone to faulty charging port


Dan Roberts

The new electric Spectral is available with a 900Wh battery that should minimize any range anxiety.

Rico Haase

With the new Canyon Spectral:ON CFR, the German manufacturer from Koblenz has achieved a major coup! Although the test was initially slowed down by some problems in the tuning of the RockShox Flight Attendant suspension, the overall package of the top model could...

  1. Carbon cockpit visually impresses and has perfect ergonomics
  2. Independent, attractive design with great balance and modern geometry
  3. Significantly stiffer rear end compared to the previous model
  4. Latest cell technology in the battery and capacity of up to 900 Wh, enormous range
  1. Carbon cockpit - if it doesn't fit, handlebars and stem need to be replaced
  2. Rear tire with Maxxis EXO+ carcass not very durable
  3. No local distributor nearby if problems arise


Alex Evans

Great for tamer trails, but its potential is limited by conservative geometry and a raw-feeling ride

  1. Impressive battery range
  2. light weight
  3. supportive suspension
  4. drool-worthy spec for the most part
  1. Raw ride feel
  2. conservative geometry with a lack of adjustment
  3. tyre choice
