Expirience with the Canyon Torque 27.5 AL 6

Canyon Torque 27.5 AL 6 Review You could still call the Torque 27.5 AL 6 a freerider. However, the term Enduro is now much more common. It´s one of the few bikes that are currently still available with 27.5 inch wheels. With its geometry, the Canyon Fully is right in the middle between playfulness and high speed stability. For all of those who love a good incline, the moderate seating position of the on extremely technical trails should be considered pleasant. Heavy riders over 85 kilos aren´t likely to encounter too many problems with the high weight of 16,1 kg. For lighter riders, this could be a disturbance. The strongest case for this bike is however: The coherent geometry and grippy tires ensure full send mode on the trail. We like: 6 years warranty on the frame!
