Canyon has introduced a new version of the Spectral, blurring the lines between trail, all-mountain and enduro.

The new Spectral 125 combines very slack geometry with not too much rear travel. Running the recommended 140mm fork, the Spectral 125 sits at a 64-degree angle – much slacker than you’d encounter on most 125mm 29er frames.

Geometry is very progressive, combing that 64-degree head angle with long reach numbers and a tight rear triangle, with 437mm chainstays on all sizes.
