Canyon announced the latest iteration of its Spectral:ON eMTBs last month but it was a bit of a tease. The new bikes got a new carbon chassis which dropped frame weight, new more capable geometry, and now come equipped with 720Wh and 900Wh look to be the best electric mountain bikes that Canyon has made so far. However, while the premium CFR version was available from launch, due to the state of supply chains these days the actual availability date for the CF bikes was a bit unknown, with Canyon simply stating the bikes would be coming in May.

Well, the good news is that the day has come and the Canyon Spectral:ON CF7, CF8 and CF9 are now available to purchase. That said if you want one, we would recommend that you don't hang about as stock is likely to sell out fast.

The US is getting in on the fun too, although only the Spectral CF8 will be available from today, with the CF7 following in the summer. The top-tier CFR models are still not due till the Fall of 2022. 

Bikes will be available to order from Canyon.com (opens in new tab).
