Expirience with the Canyon Lux Trail CF 6

Canyon Lux Trail CF 6 Review The Lux Trail CF 6 is based on the frame of Canyon's classic fully race bike. With the longer fork and adapted equipment, it tickles more riding pleasure out of it´s sporty chassis. With 12,2 kg, the Canyon Lux Trail CF 6 counts towards the lighter bikes in this price range. The competitors are sometimes heavier. The moderate 67,5 degree head tube angle ensures a balanced handling. Due to the interplay of a relatively long top tube and a low stack, the riding position is sporty. A shout out to Canyon – we take our hats off, because a first-class price / performance ratio make the Lux Trail CF 6 for tours with lots of high meters a benchmark in the price range under 4500 Euro. We like: 6 years warranty on the frame! Caution when selecting the size: the Carbon frame sizing runs big.
