Canyon Introduces the new Torque:ON

CANYON BICYCLES

THE ALL-NEW TORQUE:ON

Canyon is introducing an all-new, e-park bike—the Torque:ON—that combines the capability of the brand’s heralded Torque model with the power and range of Shimano’s new EP8 pedal-assist system. The brand’s Spectral:ON model also receive the EP8 motor and battery update.

The Torque:ON is an absolute downhill-ripping, berm-slashing, air-boosting beast of a bike. It sports 175mm of ground-hugging rear suspension, a bombproof aluminum frame, and the kind of playful ride quality that’s rare from a bike with so much suspension travel. The Torque:ON is, in short, the perfect rig for anyone on a quest to ride the steepest, fastest tracks—without the aid of a shuttle van or chairlift.

DOWNHILL BEAST
The Torque:ON is an absolute downhill-ripping, berm-slashing, beast. It sports 175mm of ground-hugging rear suspension, a nigh indestructible frame, and a surprisingly playful ride quality.

  • TONS OF TRACTION
    We optimized our World Cup-winning Triple Phase rear suspension design for e-MTB performance—reducing pedal kickback for a supremely smooth ride quality and insane levels of traction.
  • PLUSH & PRECISE
    The Torque:ON goes big on front suspension. Spearheaded by FOX 38 and RockShox ZEB forks each model sports massive 38mm stanchions and stout fork chassis that devour rough terrain.
  • PLAYFUL YET STABLE
    The Torque:ON’s ultra-slack (63.5-degree) headtube and long reach boost your stability on fast and steep sections while its short chainstays make it a blast in corners and on tight tracks

SUPER TOUGH
The only Category 5 E-MTB that we make the Torque:ON is as strong as our bombproof bikes that take riders to the winners’ podium at Redbull Rampage and the World Cup DH circuit.

  • OVERSIZED BEARINGS
    Oversized bearings in all the frame pivots keep contaminants at bay and the Torque:On cycling smoothly through its travel, season after punishing season.
  • BURLY FRAME
    We engineered the Torque:ON’s tough alloy frame to withstand the biggest drops and rough landings imaginable. It’s bomber.
  • INTEGRATED PROTECTION
    You push the limits you’re going to hit stuff. Hard. The Torque:ON’s integrated chain guide and bashguard keep your chain in place and protect both your motor and chainring.

SURPRISINGLY AGILE
The Torque:ON proves that it’s possible to create an E-MTB that’s both stable and nimble balancing big-mountain capability with jump-line playfulness.

  • 27.5 WHEELS
    27.5 ain’t dead. In fact the lighter smaller wheels are key to the Torque:ON’s playful ride quality. This wheelsize still has some tricks up its sleeve.
  • LIGHTWEIGHT BATTERIES
    Equipping the Torque:ON with a short and lightweight 504-Wh battery lowers frame weight and lends a poppy quality to the ride. This bike wants to get airborne.
  • SHORT CHAINSTAYS
    The Torque:ON’s long reach and low center of gravity lend it stability while its short 430mm chainstays bring a quick and snappy ride quality to the mix.

MASSIVE POWER
Shimano’s new EP8 motor is one of the most powerful motors available. With 500 peak watts and 85 Nm of torque pedaling up to reach the best downhill runs has officially stopped being a drag.

DESIGNED FOR LONG DESCENTS
All Torque:ON models feature piggyback rear shocks—their higher oil volume prevents overheating ensuring consistent fade-free performance on the longest roughest descents.
