    Summary

    Expirience with the Canyon Lux Trail CF 8

    Canyon Lux Trail CF 8 Review The Lux Trail CF 8 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. 11,8 kg is great value for the total weight of a 12,0083333333333. On all kinds of trails, the Lux Trail CF 8 therefore rides significantly lighter-footed than its competitors. With its geometry, the Canyon Downcountry-Bike is right in the middle between playfulness and high speed stability. The sporty riding position allows for very effective pedaling. The high-quality frame meets all current standards and thus serves as a perfect foundation for a solid, complete bike. With a central lever on the handlebar of the tours with lots of high meters, the complete chassis can be blocked. All in all, in the tours with lots of high meters category, you will hardly find a better overall package from parts and geometry. Canyon gives 6 years warranty on the bike.
