You’ve seen the bike. Now find out what happened when we gave three riders from the Canyon CLLCTV’s UK contingent some test bikes to try.

Semi-skimmed, in case you were wondering.

The Spectral:ON is now even more playful thanks to a carbon frame with improved weight distribution- meaning it didn’t take long for the guys to get to grips with our new E-Bike. The trail bike in Canyon’s EMTB line-up, and the perfect option for ripping lap after lap at your local hill.

However, it's worth pointing out the Spectral:ON is capable of a whole lot more, should the mood take you. And we can confirm that, on occasion, all 150mm of available travel were used during the making of this edit, and the bikes kept coming back for more.



Two full days of riding with Phil Auckland, James Farrar and Freddy Pulman put the Spectral:ON through its paces, and despite the stormy weather, the session did not slow down. Not once.


Trick of the day? Easy.

The mood.


Green is the colour.


Dry gloves are the secret to unlocking flatter table tops.

Head to Canyon.com to check out the new Spectral:ON

 Don't quite get the hate. Imho the best looking emtb so far and very reasonably priced. If you want to hate on ebikes why not hate on downhill bikes as well - no one is bio pedaling those up the hills either.

 so you don't get the hate for e-bikes and prefer to hate DH because a DH bike don't pedal uphill??? why you need to hate MTB? So in your opinion any MX rider is a handicapted crippled person because he don't bio pedal the MX bike?

 @mudmandhbrazil , stefkrger isn’t hating on anyone. They said they don’t understand why people hate emtb then compared it to if people were to hate dh because they don’t pedal uphill.

 I undesrtood he is not an e-bike hater, I just don't understand why he suggested people to go hate DH. Or maybe I didn't understood nothing because my english is bad.
