Knock-knock. Who’s there? 2020. 2020 who? 2020 Canyon Neuron CF SLX! The newest mountain bike trail beast from the German brand has just launched, and its kitted out with everything you’d expect.
Alp cross, day tours just around your corner, quick after-office rides: With its 130 millimetres of suspension travel, the Neuron is extremely versatile and one of the most popular full suspension bikes in Canyon’s MTB portfolio. With the new top model Neuron CF SLX 9.0 Ltd., the carbon version Neuron CF presented for model year 2019 now receives a remarkable addition.
From model year 2020, the Neuron CF SLX 9.0 Ltd. marks the new spearhead of the Neuron family. Outstanding feature: the SLX frame weighs only 2,280 grams*, another 250 grams less than the SL. If the Neuron CF SL is already a very light and sportive 130 mm bike, the CF SLX almost mutates into a race rocket. Thanks to its top-level spec with Shimano XTR 1×12 drivetrain and brakes, FOX Float DPS Factory shock and FOX 34 Factory fork as well as DT Swiss XMC1200 carbon wheels, the Neuron CF SLX 9.0 Ltd. achieves a total weight of super-light 11.7 kg (size M). The impressive 250 gram weight saving on the frame is due to the use of special 40T UD carbon fibers, which at the same time further increase the tensile strength of the main frame and rear triangle. To pay tribute to this engineering achievement, the Canyon designers have given the CF SLX frame a very special finish: minimal coloured “Tinted Black” clear lacquer allows the pilot a clear view of the carbon fibre structures on the top tube at all times.
With the newcomer, the Neuron CF family now consists of five models including a WMN variant specifically for women. The Neuron CF 8.0 marks the entry into the carbon world of the 130 mm bike for 2,699 €, the new Neuron CF SLX 9.0 Ltd. will be available from 19 November for 5,999 € via www.canyon.com (Eurozone pricing).
