Expirience with the Canyon Lux CF 7

Canyon Lux CF 7 Review The Lux CF 7 has been on the market unchanged for a number of years, and yet it is one of the fastest race fullys in the world. Most recently, Andres Seewald even became marathon world champion with it. Certainly also thanks to the excellent rear triangle. Anyone who has no concrete preferences when it comes to handling, can´t go wrong with the Canyon Lux CF 7. Because his handling is pleasantly balanced. The sporty riding position allows for very effective pedaling. If you love crisp downhill runs, there are other Racebike around under 4500 Euro that would suit you better. The easy rolling tires, the 510 wide range of gears and the lock-out capacity of the suspension underline the sporty ambitions in the uphill. Canyon gives 6 years warranty on the bike. Caution when selecting the size: the Carbon frame sizing runs big.
