Canyon stands for “Pure Cycling”, which Founder & CEO Roman Arnold has kept in firm view since day one of his company: “’Pure Cycling is about giving every rider in the world access to the best bike possible. It’s not just about winning awards for technical innovation, or the outstanding value our direct sales concept offers. Instead, riders who would not normally be able to get their hands on high performance products where they live can come directly to us, and we can give them what they want.” Canyon delivers pre-assembled bikes directly to riders’ homes in their patented Canyon Bike Guard. In just a few steps out of the box, the bike is ready-to-ride.
South African mountain biking pro, Erik Kleinhans of Canyon Topeak Factory Racing, has competed on Canyon since 2016. “It’s super exciting that Canyon is now directly available in my home country. I can truly vouch for the performance of their bikes after racing their Exceed CF SLX and Lux CF models around the world the past three seasons. Now we are building for the start of the Absa Cape Epic in mid-March, right on my doorstep, where I hope we can deliver some great results!”
Canyon products are distributed around the world and are regularly singled out for recognition by the global cycling press and beyond in general interest media. The brand is famed for its engineering-first approach and devotion to simple, precise and dynamic designs.
Recently, Canyon received the prestigious title, “Red Dot: Design Team of the Year,” becoming the first bike brand ever to win the award.
