For 2021 Canyon has updated the brands best selling bike, the Grand Canyon. The update introduces new kids frames and, a first for the Grand Canyon, the brand has done away with any front derailleurs, with all bikes coming with 1x drivetrains from the warehouse.
Starting with the expensive one, the new Grand Canyon 9 tops the range. It comes kitted with Canyon's own Iridium dropper post, Fox 34 Rhythm with 120mm of squish, and a Shimano XT drivetrain.
The 29" Iridium wheels come with a 25mm internal width and are paired with two 2.35" Schwalbe Nobby Nics.
That one will set you back £1,750 and will come in XS up to XL with sizes up to S coming fitted with 650b wheels.
New for 2021 is Canyons Grand Canyon Young Hero. It's the new kid's bike that rolls on 650b hoops which features kit that fits small people best.
At the front is 100mm of suspension provided by an SR Suntour XCR fork and it comes kitted with a Shimano Deore 1x11 drivetrain which features that large 51t gear.
On the brands' own wheelset with a 23mm internal width, the Young Hero gets Schwalbe's Tough Tom up front with a Rapid Rob on the rear.
The Grand Canyon Young Hero will set you back £600 and comes in 2XS and XS sizes.
Additionally, the women's bikes see an update for 2021. The Grand Canyon 7 WMN gets a lower standover and a women-specific saddle. The Grand Canyon 7 WMN comes with a RockShox Judy fork and SRAM SX Eagle drivetrain.
Like the Grand Canyon 9, the 7 WMN gets an Iridium dropper post, and like the Young Hero, a Schwalbe Tough Tom tyre on the front and a Rapid Rob on the band.
The Grand Canyon 7 WMN is priced at £1,150 and comes in 2XS up to M sizes with sizes up to S getting 650b wheels.
Then we get the entry level Grand Canyon 5. It comes with an SR Suntour XCR fork with 100m of travel. It also comes with a Shimano Deore 12 speed drivetrain and a Schwalbe Tough Tom, and Rapid Rob tyre combo.
This one also comes in five sizes with the wheel size split with XS to S coming with 650b rims and larger sizes getting 29er hoops.
The Grand Canyon 5 will set you back £800.
