Expirience with the Canyon Spectral 125 CF 8

Canyon Spectral 125 CF 8 Review The Spectral 125 CF 8 is available in many versions. The 125 models have an aggressive approach to the geometry and want to convey maximum descending fun - despite the short suspension travel. On the scale, the Canyon Fully with 13,8 kg looks good. Most All Mountain in the price range until under 4500 Euro are heavier. If you ride super fast on tricky singletrails, you will love the calm handling of the All Mountain of Canyon. The sporty riding position allows for very effective pedaling. Despite this criticism, the coherent overall concept makes the Canyon Fully to on demanding single tracks a buying recommendation in the price range 3999 Euro range. A nice warranty promises sustainability. With 6 years warranty Canyon sets the bar high!
