The Canyon Grand Canyon hardtail mountain bike has been their best selling bike in Europe, and now it’s stateside with a $1,299 price tag. Well, it’s just one model from that line, but it’s solid entry level offering with full SRAM drivetrain, Shimano brakes, and a Rockshox fork. There’s even a dropper seatpost…
2021 Grand Canyon hardtail specs
All 2021 Grand Canyon 7 models get a SRAM SX Eagle wide-range 12-speed drivetrain with 10-50 cassette, 120mm-travel RockShox Judy Silver fork, Shimano MT400 hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm/160mm rotors, and a housebrand Canyon Iridium 150mm travel dropper seatpost. The rest of the cockpit is alloy Canyon-branded parts, too.
It has Boost axle spacing front and rear, too, so it’s fully upgradable with modern components. Which is good, because their AL SL alloy frames look decent. Stock wheels are Alex MD25 rims built on Shimano MT400 hubs, with Schwalbe tires around them.
The full geometry chart is on their website, but a couple of highlights are a 67.5º to 68º head angle and 74º seat angle, both giving it beginner-friendly geometry that’s modern enough. The chainstay length increases up the size range, as does wheel size. The XS/S sizes get 27.5″ wheels, M/L/XL get 29er wheels.
Women’s specific models get modified cockpit parts and a different saddle, and add an even smaller 2XS size, also with 27.5″ wheels and tires.
Medium and Large are available now in blue or black. Other sizes should come in at the end of July or early August.
