A can't-go-wrong hardtail for both experienced and new MTB riders
External rear brake line routing - no bleeding
Decent hub engagement
170mm dropper on our medium
Solid trail geometry
Wheel / tire / rotational weight
Tires too aggressive for many conditions
Cable and hose lengths out of box were long
Stem is unnecessarily complicated

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!
