During a time when many brands are anxious to revitalise their often well-established suspension platforms, Canyon launch a totally fresh downhill bike into their range – the Sender. But it’s not so disconnected from their existing frame designs to lose the Canyon lineage.
The marketing that surrounds the new downhill bike – “Draw the Line” – centres around track line choice and the message that a rider should “never follow” to achieve a perfect run, that the optimum line is about creativity and that the fastest lines don’t always stand out. More than this they say the Sender CF is the way you can achieve this.
At the press conference in Portugal Canyon focussed on a much more quantitative type of line as the key feature of their new flagship – the bike’s compression ratio. But before that just take a look at these prices…
SENDER CF 7.0 3.599€ blue or red
SENDER CF 8.0 4.299€ black or red
