The New Canyon Torque Comes in All the Wheel and Size Options

So you want to go big with that next mountain bike purchase, but how much travel is too much? If you’ve chewed on this question a while and decided to go off the most squish that can still be pedaled uphill, the Canyon Torque might be the ride of your current dreams.

The redesigned Torque can be had with all three wheels size configurations in aluminum or carbon fiber. The bikes with 27.5″ rear wheels have 175mm of rear travel paired with a 180mm fork, and full 29ers use 170mm of squish front and rear. All options are dual-crown compatible in case you need to sidle the bike even closer to a full DH sled.

Now for the long and slack bits we all anticipate with a redesigned gravity frame. Reach across the new Torque isn’t eye-popping-long at 440, 465, 490, and 510mm across the four sizes. The Chainstays on all mixed-wheel and 27.5″ bikes and the smallest 29er are a brief 435mm, while the three larger 29ers are balanced out back by 440mm long stays. The frame’s flip-chip adjusts the seat tube angle between 77.5° and 78° and leans the head tube between 63.5° and 64°. Seat tubes are cut to average lengths, with a 430mm on the medium and 445mm on the large that might allow some riders to choose a larger frame if they so choose.

Canyon says that the suspension kinematic has been improved, providing optimal grip while also making a relatively efficient pedaling platform. That same frame became stiffer and lighter, and Canyon says they designed the alloy and carbon models to ride as similarly as possible on the trail.

The five new Torque build options range in price from $3,299 to $5,399. Click over to the Canyon site for additional details.
