What has a 250W motor, the ability to go for five hours (or more) and can handle drops that would make elevators cower? That would be the new Torque:ON, a new model from the German company Canyon that bridges the gap between e-bikes and full downhill bikes. With 170mm of travel in the rear and

If you’ve ever braaped an imaginary throttle as you’ve powered out of a tight switchback, or stuck an inside foot out as you’ve landed a jump into a berm, then Canyon’s new Torque:ON freeride bike will elevate your supercross fantasies to new heights. Hey, there’s even a Ken Roczen special edition colourway to satisfy the frustrated MX superfan. The Canyon Torque:ON not the e-bike for you? Then check out our buyer’s guide to the best electric mountain bikes. Need to know Built for blasting self-shuttled bike park runs 175mm of rear wheel travel paired with a 180mm fork Mullet wheels and four frame sizes across a three model range Shimano EP8 motor with 85Nm and 600W peak power Choose to run either 720Wh or 900Wh battery Split top tube accommodates custom gas tank-inspired drinks bottle Three models with prices starting from £5,749 No more lift tickets The idea of a burly, self-shuttled bike park bruiser is not a new concept at Canyon – it has had a Torque:ON in the range since 2021 – but with 27.5in wheels front and rear and a measly 504Wh battery on board, it never really caught on. This new version stuffs its predecessor into the hay bales with a far more attractive (and moto-inspired) mullet wheel set-up, and enough battery power to let you smash out laps until your arms fall off. Taking the clever modular battery idea from the Spectral:ON, this new Torque:ON will accommodate either a 720Wh or 900Wh power pack to run its Shimano EP8 motor. The battery slides out the bottom of the fully enclosed down tube, so it’s easy to remove for charging, or you can swap between the options depending on whether you want long range or less weight. There’s a £350 price difference between the two batteries at the checkout, as well as a 910g weight penalty with the bigger unit. More strength, less weight Canyon’s engineers have gone to town on the new frame design, with a layout that puts the shock low and inline with the down tube, driven by a huge, solid-carbon seatstay extension. Everything is pumped up and overbuilt, but the new frame is claimed to be 1.5kg lighter than the old model, while bringing stiffness improvements of 7% to the front triangle and a whopping 25% at the stays. Testament to the abuse it’ll take is the fact that it exceeds cat 5 certification. Onboard water feature The signature feature of the new frame is the split top tube, where a custom drinks bottle nestles between two carbon struts. It’s undeniably moto-inspired, and while this gas tank only fuels the human engine, you’ve got to hand it to Canyon for going to such lengths to accommodate a bottle. Run the Torque:ON with the 900Wh battery combined with a full ‘Hydration Station’ and you’re looking at adding over 1.5kg to the weight of the front end, which will not only have an effect on fork pressures, but it will almost certainly make the …Continue reading »

Ease of battery removal was a big focus for Canyon, so a simple hatch has been designed into the underside of the bike, held in place by just two bolts.

Canyon's latest eMTB packs a huge battery and motor for all-day shredding
Inspired by Downhill MTB and Motocross design, this full carbon frame features true gravity geometry and bombproof Category 5 strength to make it our toughest and most capable e-MTB ever. The low slung, responsive carbon chassis delivers on point handling so you can rail every turn and boost every jump.
A low slung gravity focussed frame is no place for a conventional water bottle and cage. But sending it can be thirsty work so we've integrated a sleek 650 ml water bottle behind the headtube. To keep the bottle secure on even the biggest hits, every Torque:ON CF will ship with bottle, cage and a shred proof security strap.
The Torque:ON CF 8 features our Canyon-developed 720 Wh battery that boosts your mileage and stoke factor by 15% over a standard full-size battery. Weighing in at just 3.9 kg, this power plant won't tie you down when it's time to go big.
This bike is powered by Shimano’s EP8 motor. At 2.6 kg, the magnesium-clad Shimano motor is one of the lightest full-power motors on the market. It’s also one of the most powerful, with 85 Nm of peak torque that effectively quadruples your pedaling power and makes punching up steep climbs that much easier. The result? More laps and more fun.
