This week Canyon released the 2020 Neuron CF SLX 9.0 Ltd which together with a top of the line build kit and upgraded carbon, tips the scales at a remarkable 11.7kg.
The highly versatile 130mm Canyon Neuron is said to be the most popular model in the Canyon mountain bike range. Adding a super-light edition will naturally further extend that popularity. The new SLX frame weighs 2,280 grams for a size M, without axle & shock which Canyon says almost mutates the bike into a race rocket. Canyon used 40T UD carbon on the front triangle and rear section which improves weight and strength. The build kit is top drawer stuff: Shimano XTR 1×12 drivetrain and brakes, FOX Float DPS Factory shock and FOX 34 Factory fork with DT Swiss XMC1200 carbon wheels. Geometry remains unchanged for the 2020 models.
