A can't-go-wrong hardtail for both experienced and new MTB riders

  • Price

  • Looks great

  • Fork spec

  • External rear brake line routing - no bleeding

  • Decent hub engagement

  • 170mm dropper on our medium

  • Solid trail geometry

  • Versatility

  • Wheel / tire / rotational weight

  • Tires too aggressive for many conditions

  • Cable and hose lengths out of box were long

  • Stem is unnecessarily complicated

Canyon Stoic 4 2021 on review - A hardtail for MTB beginners?

Jun 2021 · Peter Walker

Do you even need a full suspension mountain bike to have fun on the trail? With their progressive Stoic hardtail, Canyon want to offer an accessible gateway to the trail riding dimension. Retailing at € 1,699, the Stoic 4 features an alloy frame, rolls on 29” wheels and offers 140 mm travel at the front. After putting the Canyon through the wringer, we can tell you whether it's a sensible and affordable alternative to a full suspension bike or even just an exciting trail rocket!

  • Comfortable pedalling position

  • Good climber on easy trails

  • Precise and direct handling

  • Poor build quality

  • Critical spec, especially the wheels and brakes

  • Poor value for money, even in light of the low price

Canyon Stoic 4 review

Mar 2021 · Ed Thomsett

Fast geometry and a solid build kit have allowed Canyon to maximise the descending capability of a rigid-framed bike

  • Modern geometry

  • Well-considered componentry

  • Versatile, gravity loving all-rounder

  • Aluminium frame can be harsh

  • Long, low shape has trade-offs with snappy handling

Canyon Stoic Review | More yahoos for less dollarydoos!

Feb 2021

Equipped with a 140mm fork, chunky tyres and slack geometry, Canyon's new hardcore hardtail aims to bring Spectral-like capability into a simpler and cheaper package. To see just how capable it is for the money, we put the new Stoic 4 to the test on both the trail and the street. Read on for our Canyon Stoic review!

  • Tough, no-nonsense alloy frame

  • Spot-on geometry

  • RockShox Pike is such a good performer

  • Sticky, durable and well-damped tyres

  • Heavy duty wheelset

  • Terrific overall value for money

  • Frame protection is severely lacking

  • We'd love a saddle with more cushioning

  • The auto-ejecting bottle cage
