Bicycling (South Africa) - - Birth Of An Icon - – M.P.

Only avail­able on US im­port, the new Lux is for rid­ers who want to go hard, go fast, and win cross-coun­try races. It’s a car­bon fi­bre 29er with 100mm of travel, and a frame and shock that weigh less than 2 000 grams (4.4 pounds). You get a drop­per post, front and rear lock­out, and room for two wa­ter bot­tles in the frame. Rac­ers will ap­pre­ci­ate the steep 70-de­gree head-tube an­gle and long and low rid­ing po­si­tion. Canyon of­fers a lot for the price, in­clud­ing SRAM’s XX1 driv­e­train (with Grip Shift), Reynolds car­bon wheels, and Rock­Shox SID with car­bon crown and steerer.

THERE’S ROOM FOR TWO (TWO!) WA­TER BOT­TLES.
