bigquotesTook My new Canyon Spectral out to one of my favourite downhill tracks that I use to train for the World Cups, to see how it would handle. Think it passed the test, although a bigger fork would've been even better!Jack Moir

 The closest most of us get, is ridding to the bottom and realising your shock was locked out!!

 I think that can happen even on an average level. Sure JM is going to be faster than you no matter what bike, but just try riding the DH racetrack in your local park with your trailbike and with a DH bike. The trailbike will clearly slow you down ( except if the trail is extremely easy).

One could even argue the lesser the skill the more the bike makes a difference.

 Awesome to have a video with some punk rock finally, too many with wishy washy motivational music. This reminded me of 90's MBUK VHS tapes, love it

 No stupid bullshit clickbait title or thumbnail, no long monologues to camera about how awesome he thinks he is; just some sweet riding and a nice soundtrack. 10/10 from me.

 This. He pumps out rad video content and is a top-5 level guy in both DH and Enduro, huge sponsorship value.

 Geez, if this guy is not helping to sell more Canyon bikes, I don’t who or what will. I hope they’re treating him well because he’s definitely the business.

 motors and batteries help sell bikes nowadays :/

I remembed back in 2019 when GT team shined in the EWS on both men and women, and they wouldn't even import these models here (there's a pretty thriving scene here). I was told in person "we can either bring a batch of Sensors and take months to sell them, or bring a container of eBikes and they're sold before they hit the ground".
Sad but true...

 I absolutely love the color of that bike! I personally love the bold and brash colorways... black is timeless, but other options are great!

 Best video I've seen in a while! Great tunes, awesome riding and super well shot, can actually appreciate how fast he's going which is hard to capture

 So, can someone please explain why everyone needs a fork with 38mm stanchions? Looks like a small 35mm Pike trailfork holds up rather well!

 cept his big ol quote beneath the video where he says it would have been better with a bigger fork...

 You buy the bike for how you wish you could ride

 You don't NEED it, but it's nice. I just moved from the 35mm MRP Ribbon to the 37mm Manitou Mezzer, and the difference i noticeable. Maybe it is because the MRP had some issues, but there is a clear difference in feel when cornering and riding tech.
