Canyon and DT Swiss celebrate their long-standing collaboration with the creation of a special edition of Lux, the XC race rocket from the German brand, available today in a limited edition of only 32 available.
KOBLENZ, 21 JANUARY 2020 – engineering meets Swiss precision with the launch of the all-new Canyon Lux CF SLX 9.0 DT LTD. Kitted out in the latest line of DT Swiss 232 One parts, this limited-edition Lux, restricted to just 32 examples, celebrates the longstanding partnership between Canyon and Switzerland’s premier component manufacturer.
DT Swiss components have been a mainstay across the Canyon product range for years thanks to their engineering-first approach and strong reputation for outstanding reliability and race-winning performance. The close relationship between both brands’ engineers, designers and product mangers has influenced product development on both sides of the German-Swiss border. For evidence, look no further than the brand new 232 One XC component line. Canyon was integrated in the project from the off, playing a key role in the development of the striking, inverted D 232 One 60 mm dropper post, which at just 369 g sets a new benchmark for progressive XC riding and racing.
The Lux CF SLX 9.0 DT LTD is built around the World Cup-winning Lux CF SLX frame. SRAM take care of the
shifting with their top-end XX1 Eagle AXS groupset driving DT Swiss XRC 1200 carbon wheels with 30 mm
internal rim widths wrapped in 2.35″ Maxxis rubber up front and 2.25″ out back. As the first production bike in
the world featuring the new DT Swiss 232 One platform, this build comes complete with a 110 mm travel F
232 One fork, R 232 One rear shock and the D 232 One inverted dropper post. Tipping the scales at just 10.1 kg,
the Lux CF SLX 9.0 DT LTD embodies the versatility of modern XC, at home on flowing singletrack or tackling
the World Cup circuit.
A similar setup will be raced by Lukas Flückiger throughout 2020. Long associated with DT Swiss components, Flückiger has been one of Switzerland’s top XC riders, and in 2020 he’s targeting a strong World Cup season as well as qualification for the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
All 32 Canyon Lux CF SLX 9.0 DT LTD will be available from Thursday 23 January on the Canyon website at a price of €7,499.
