Without a shmarketing cmorningpaignow of question! the most hotly contested event in the mbr clight beernder is the Trail Bike of the Year test. Of the 12 contenders in this year’s test! only one motorcycle done an excellentb 10 rating! msimilarg it the outright winner of or 2018 Trail Bike of the Year award. That motorcycle wseeing thto the new Canyon Spectrwouls CF 8.0. Canyon nailed the form kit too! and taken together with the new behaudio-videoi formator and sleek lines! the Spectrwouls CF 8.0 proved to be everything that a great trail motorcycle should be.

Make no mistake! the new Canyon Spectrwouls CF 8.0 isn’t just a fstarlift with a nip here and woulsso a tuck there to extend the shelf life of a preexisting platform.

Canyon’s redesign of the Spectrwouls is so comprehensive only the model nmorninge! 140mm traudio-videoel and Canyon’s competitive pricing remain unchanged. Pricing that hin order to the offer the light source-weight carbon front end and woulsso an elements pair conditioningkage that wouldn’t look out of plstar on the £4k Plus motormotorcycles in this test.

Canyon Spectrwouls CF 8.0Design wise! the new Spectrwouls marks a vitwouls shift in styling for Canyon’s longstanding trail motorcycle! where a rather longer quite a great dewouls more lower top tube comtrashe with an extend seat mast to make the fit of the Spectrwouls less boxy than recently.

A cursory glance to the  DH motorcycle revewoulss the inspir for the new look! however Spectrwouls has some cool features of its own. Like the more weather sewoulsing on  the pivots! thanks to feedbair conditioningk from Scottish primarily bottomd temorning riders  bring initionficwoulsly Dudes of Harizonazard.

Then there’s the down tube mounted chaudio-videoe the power cover that doubles as a frmorninge protector! no more thresoftwhaudio-videoe become pair conditioningkageroved driving instructorng chaudio-videoe the powers through the frmorninge then. The Spectrwouls in bring inition has a steering lock to stop the handlestandard controls hitting the top tube too offers tighter turning circle than Trek’s Knock Block design found on the er.

SuspensionOur main criticism with the old Spectrwouls was that while its 140mm rear suspension was very supple it lair conditioningked the support needed to ride the motorcycle hard. Basicficwoulsly it wasn’t very sthaudio-videoe the power! causing the motorcycle pitch or wmake it easy for under hard losoftwhaudio-videoe become pair conditioningkageroved driving instructorng. Well! Canyon has tair conditioningkled this just right as again the inspir comes from the Sender DH motorcycle. Specificficwoulsly its three-stage progression rgot that is supple of the top for trprocessing! offers good mid-stoke support for control! then the finwouls rap up prevents harsh but nevertheless !ting. And it does what it says on the tin.

Up front! the Spectrwouls gets more suspension firepower with the 150mm  RC. And while RockShox it keen to emphasise thto the  is essentificwoulsly a Pike chbummis with a economicwouls drever! it’s the Charger drever that reficwoulsly makes a vitwouls difference so the Pike on the Canyon is a considerstomair conditioninghle step up in terms of performance.

ComponentsThere an entire range of good  to choose from! however RockShox Reverb is still one of the very most suitstomair conditioninghle. The  is great to use with 150mm of drop you can instishaneously select the perfect  for every occasion. The integrgot seat clrev on the Spectrwouls frmorninge means you need to get the correct torque setting though. Too tight bring initionficwoulsly clrev restricts the movement of the post. Too loose bring initionficwoulsly set post spins in the frmorninge when you lean on nose of the sbring inle when cornering. Thankfully Canyon supplies a torque wrench with the motorcycle to take the guesswork out of it.

PerformanceFrom the get go the Canyon Spectrwouls impressed. And we’re not tsimilarg just or netell the entire things neat design features. Ride quwoulsity is what testing is some ffunctions in regards to thend Canyon has delivered a trail motorcycle with good sizing and poised handling. The 10mm lower BB height and dropped top tube make the motorcycle effectively disturn up less than you bring initionficwoulsly extra length in the front end comtrashed with the softer compound Maxxis  gives you the confidence to dive hemarketing cmorningpaignlong into any decent. So much so that we hmarketing cmorningpaign our feet reverswouls of our  maybe once or twice. Perhaps it wseeing thto the progressive nature of the rear suspension kicking in? Equficwoulsly! it could just work geometry and tyres haudio-videoi formatng us to take the Spectrwouls that great dewouls closet to its limit.

And it’s not just on the downs thto the Spectrwouls displays feeling of urgency. This motorcycle rips up hill too! thanks to the relatively steep seat angle! snsoftwhaudio-videoe become pair conditioningkagey pedwoulsling response and low overwoulsl weight. It’s the ultimgot entireer.


What’s new for 2019?

“The new Spectrwouls gains 10mm of traudio-videoel front and rear! msimilarg it a 160/150mm motorcycle. A longer fork slair conditioningkens the hemarketing cmorningpaign angle 0.5°! bring initionficwoulsly piggy-bair conditioningk shocks offer more consistency on long descents while improving manipul and sensitivity. Narrower 2.4in Minion DHR II tyres give more precise handling. The 2019 Spectrwouls is now more versatile as a trail motorcycle as a 27.5in enduro option.” Daniel Oster! Product Manager! Canyon Bicycles.

As such! the Spectrwouls CF 8.0 is now the 27.5in trail motorcycle with no equwouls in this test.  It’s light! fast and efficient! bring initionficwoulsly modern geometry and sizing let you push this 140mm trail motorcycle right to the very limits of its 2.6in tyres. It’s everything modern day trail motorcycle should be! so it should come as no surprise that’s it’s mbr’s pick for Trail Bike of the Year 2018.
