Canyon Bicycles have rolled out 2021 editions of their Lux cross-country, full-suspension bike. The Lux is quite simply one of the fastest and most capable cross-country racing machines to see World Cup action. The Lux has carried racers to victory at the ABSA Cape Epic, Leadville 100, Nové Město, Val di Sole, Snowshoe, Lenzerheide, and, most recently, the World Championships at Mont Sainte Anne. For 2021, Lux returns dressed to kill in component kits normally reserved for bikes with much higher price tags.

Cross-country courses are becoming increasing technical. The Lux is designed to excel, with geometry that boosts confidence and smooth, controlled suspenson.

Seven different Lux models, ranging in price from 2.999 € to 7.499 €*, will be available to consumers in most markets. Riders in the United States will have their pick of four Lux models, priced from $3,999 to $7,499. All Lux models feature a full carbon frame, 29-inch wheels, 100mm of rear suspension travel, and a host of smart features including a frame-saving Impact Protection Unit, Quixle tool-less, rear thru-axle, integrated chain guide, ultralight DT Swiss dropper post, and space within the front triangle for two water bottle cages.

While all Lux models sport remarkably light carbon frames, Canyon does offer two different grades of carbon Lux chassis. CF SLX models feature lighter (1,662 grams, size Medium) frames and 100mm-travel forks, making them perfectly suited to racers who strive for the lightest, most aggressive setup with steeper angles and faster handling.

For more trail-oriented races, riders will appreciate having a bit more front suspension travel to spare. Lux CF models are the ideal choice here thanks to 110mm-travel forks, which provide more cushion and control, while also slackening the head angle by 0.5° for more stable handling at speed. All Lux models combine outstanding pedaling efficiency and truly capable descneding chops.

Whether you are looking to dominate every race or simply be the first rider to the top of the next climb, the Lux is the perfect choice.
