    Summary

    Expirience with the Canyon Spectral 29 AL 5

    Canyon Spectral 29 AL 5 Review An aggressive approach to the geometry makes the Spectral 29 AL 5 one of the most "newschool" bikes on the market. Perfect for shredding, skipping, braaaping. The combination of a 64 degree head tube angle and a long wheelbase calms down the handling of the Spectral 29 AL 5, even if you ride fast. If you want to get ahead efficiently and quickly, you will welcome the sporty riding position. Another strong argument needs to be mentioned: the coherent geometry and the grippy tires will make you smile all the way to the bottom of the descent. The guarantee of 6 years proves that Canyon puts a lot of trust in its products.
