Canyon, the German manufacturer that pioneered consumer-direct bike sales, has introduced its updated Spectral:ON CF 7 eMTB for 2024. The Spectral:ON CF 7 is considered a “trail” eMTB, which is to say it has less travel than an enduro model, such as the Canyon Torque:ON. In our spec review of the Canyon Spectral:ON CF 7 we will look at what makes this a trail model as well as what sort of value it represents.
