The new 2019 Canyon LUX has taken flight! Needles to say, that you as the rider will very clearly be doing the same!
Canyon’s designers have whipped out an all-new, modern, cross-country, race bike design on the 2019 LUX. The frame has been majorly improved, and engineered with some great XC-Marathon features.
A new rear suspension design on the LUX’s frame is accompanied by more efficient shock absorption. The simplicity of the frame, allowed Canyon to drop the bike’s weight far down to 2000-grams, total.
The LUX’s rear triangle shape, inspires traction on the back wheel without power loss. It’s absolutely stable at high speed, and weight has been knocked off significantly from the previous version. 38% of the rocker arm weight, has been subtracted without compromising on stiffness in the material.
Canyon have brought in what they call Triple Phase Suspension. Overall this new technology proves itself on the test terrain greatly. The 100mm of suspension travel on the back shock is amplified, through progressive shock travel.
“Sensitive at the start of the stroke, stable through the middle, and progressive at the end.” – Canyon
The new LUX packs along all the features that a cross-country marathon racer would dream of. Mainly, the bike’s provision for that crucial second water bottle on the frame, comes as a result of the new suspension design.
- Suspension linkage weight reduction – 63%
- 8.2-gram chain stay protector.
- 4.6-gram chain guide.
- 58% weight deduction on all frame metal parts.
Canyon’s 2019 LUX comes locked and loaded with 80mm stems throughout the range of size bikes. The updated LUX frame, now has shorter 435mm chain stay, for more manoeuvrability. A 70-degree head-tube angle and 74.5-degree seat-tube angle, handle the bike riding positons. Evidently they’re quite aggressive.
