Canyon Sender CF2222

Un tout nouveau DH

Développé en secret depuis de nombreux mois, Canyon révèle enfin officiellement l’existence de son tout nouveau vélo de descente. Apparu aux mains de Fabien Barel lors des Crankworx à Rotorua, le Sender CF (Carbon Fiber) est enfin prêt à retourner les plus grosses pistes de descente.

Canyon say "downhill is as much about creativity as it is about strength, skill and guts," and for a bike designed to be pushed hard in the most extreme of environments and scenarios, that certainly makes a lot of sense. But what attributes are needed to deliver these traits in a downhill bike, especially one being released in 2016? For the engineers, designers and product managers responsible for bringing the Sender to life, that meant developing the best suspension and geometry while similarly choosing the best parts to complement their new creation. While we've all heard that before, Canyon's popular Strive enduro bike and its 'Shapeshifter' technology and 'Race Geometry' certainly proved that Canyon like to push the envelope when it comes to bikes that don't follow the rules of convention.
