Canyon Spectral 125 CF 9 review

Leon Poultney

With shorter travel and a lighter frame, the Canyon Spectral 125 CF 9 is designed to rip on a multitude of terrains.

  • Great handling

  • Plenty of adjustment

  • Sweet components

  • Not much weight saving over 150mm version

  • Carbon frame prone to chipping

  • Fair amount of initial set up

Featuring a 29in front end that's paired to a 27.5in rear, the Spectral mullet promises the perfect balance between the two. But is it really the best of both worlds? Read on for our Canyon Spectral CF 8 CLLCTV review.

  • An absolute dream to rip corners with

  • Playful, jump-loving attitude

  • Supple and well-controlled suspension

  • Aggressive, high-traction tyres

  • Appealing spec for the money

  • Pragmatic and serviceable frame design

  • Not the best technical climber

  • Harder work on really rough & raw singletrack

  • Slow hub engagement

Canyon Spectral:ON CF 7 in review – Looking for riding fun

Jonas Müssig

It’s definitely a Canyon! The Spectral:ON looks damn fine and is immediately recognisable as a Canyon with its distinctive carbon frame. For our budget group test, the German direct-sales brand enters the race with the € 5,199 CF 7, which integrates the EP8 motor system just as seamlessly as the flagship model. Of course, on the trail, riding performance is far more important than aesthetics. Can the light and nimble Canyon prevail against the strong competition?

  • Very high fun factor

  • Lively, nimble handling

  • Strong performance on long rides

  • Excellent value for money

  • Steep trails uphill and downhill

  • Long seat tube

  • Twitchy at high speeds

Ryan Palmer

This strong, well-balanced all-rounder is a serious contender in the e-MTB trail category.

  • Excellent Cornering

  • Overall Handling

  • Supple, Active, and Poppy Suspension Performance

  • Shimano EP8 is a Solid System

  • Slightly Behind the Times With Geometry

  • EP8 Motor rattles

  • One Piece Bar and Stem Combo on CF 9 Build Isn't Ideal for Everyone
