Bike Character

The Canyon Hardtail is the classic entry level bike for beginners by the Koblenz-based company Canyon. With 14,13 kg weight for the complete bike, the Canyon Hardtail joins the lighter bikes that you can buy for under under 1000 Euro. Most bikes in its class are heavier. We have checked all geometry measures and come to the following conclusion: the Grand Canyon 5 is a very balanced customer. The moderate seating position is likely to be the perfect middle ground for the majority of bikers. In the on fortified paths category you will hardly find a better bike under 849 Euro. A nice warranty promises sustainability. With 6 years warranty Canyon sets the bar high!

Where to Buy*

We want to make our statements about the bikes as independently as possible. Therefore, unlike most media, we are not financed by advertising. But if you like our advice and we helped you find your dream bike, you can still help us. In this section we suggest dealers from our partner network. If you buy your bike in one of these online stores, we get a small compensation. YOU HAVE NO ADDITIONAL COSTS but you help us with every click to fulfill our mission. More info here. 

 

The stores often have additional information about availability or color and equipment options. It is worth taking a look.

Size Chart

Almost every manufacturer has a size calculator for its bikes online. Nevertheless, we take a look at the geometry of each bike, completely detached from the recommendation of the manufacturer. Why: We want to give you an absolutely objective assessment of the frame size that suits you. We calculate with statistical averages for the ratio of leg length and height. If you want to know exactly what size you need, you should read this blog post from us. Here we explain how you can measure your leg length in less than 5 minutes and then determine your perfect frame size.

How Do We Review Bikes

With all the info we give you here about the bikes, you’re probably wondering: are these guys credible at all? That’s why we’ve prepared an article for you that explains exactly who is behind this website and what our mission is. 

At BIKE-TEST.COM we rate bikes as objectively as possible. Our innovative rating system has three groundbreaking advantages over all other product tests you can find on the internet:

  1. We catalog and rate bikes on over 200 criteria. No one else takes such a comprehensive look at a bike. Our revolutionary data processing allows us to break down the complete experience of over 100,000 kilometers in the saddle to each individual bike.
  2. We treat every bike exactly the same, no matter which manufacturer it comes from. You won’t get a more objective statement about mountain bikes anywhere.
  3. It’s free!

Here we explain in detail how we rate bikes. The short version: We evaluate each individual part in its quality and compare whether the individual part fits the respective area of use of the bike. In addition, we also check the geometry of a bike and draw conclusions about how this bike rides. If a bike has earned a BIKE-TEST.COM TIP, it has not only a particularly good equipment, but usually also an excellent geometry.

About The Brand

“Canyon manages to offer innovative bikes with independent design and good equipment at low prices. This is made possible by direct sales via the company’s own website. Apart from the flagship store in Koblenz, Canyon bikes can only be bought online.”

This is what BRAND is famous for:

Through its direct sales via the Internet Canyon was known for years above all for one thing: Bikes with the best equipment at mercilessly low prices! With the exception of the flagship store in Koblenz (tip on the side: the store next to the company headquarters is worth a visit just because of the good café and the professional bikes on display!) Canyon still ships its bikes exclusively by parcel to customers. There is no local dealer. The saved trade margin benefits the product (in the form of a high-quality equipment) or the customer (in the form of low prices). However, Canyon has managed in recent years to leave the corner of pure price-performance providers. With innovative frames at the highest technical level, a consistently pulled through distinctive design language and massive investments in professional sports Canyon has worked its way up to one of the most prestigious companies on the bike market. A remarkable achievement, which is not least due to the sporting successes of cycling superstar Matthieu van der Poel. He has won several Cross Country World Cups on the Canyon Lux and Canyon Exceed. Ines Thoma from Allgäu and New Zealander Jack Moir achieved notable successes in the Enduro World Series on the Strive and Spectral enduro models. Canyon’s entire Gravity division is strongly influenced by ex-downhill world champion Fabien Barel. The Frenchman not only has the reputation of Mr. Nice Guys in the scene, but is also considered a professor of downhill racing. With an engineering title in his pocket, he is significantly known for the good geometries and excellent rear kinematics of the downhill-oriented fullys. That the bikes of the Koblenzer even withstand the hard racing use, the direct mail order company underlines with a lush warranty of six years on all its products. The frames of the Canyon bikes are produced in Asia and assembled into complete bikes in Koblenz.
