Forestal had a long marketing campaign leading up to the release of their first bike in 2020, dropping hints and silhouettes anywhere they could. When the Siryon was finally released we saw a 170/170mm eMTB with a fully integrated information system. The Siryon is now available in three different builds priced from €8,299 to €12,599.
Today Forestal has a shorter-travel bike and a DH rig to present, both with all of the electric assistance and data acquisition a modern e-biker could want.
This latest 150mm carbon bike from the Andora-based company rolls on a pair of 29″ tires with the sort of geometry numbers we have come to expect on mid-travel rides. The Cyon Halo has a slack enough head tube to party, while its sole focus is clearly not descending. The 76.5° seat tube angle is also pretty average for a bike like this, and the chain stay lengths that grow with reach numbers across the size range should help balance the larger bikes out. The seat tubes are all fairly short, and the lion’s share of buyers should be able to select the reach measurement they prefer.
The three Cyon builds start at €8,299 with a 250w Forestal EonDrive motor, a 360Wh battery, Magura MT5 brakes, Praxis carbon cranks, SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain, and a RockShox Pike Select fork paired with a Super Deluxe Select+ shock. The mid build sells for €10,499 with an upgraded SRAM X01 drivetrain and Pike Ultimate fork. The top-shelf kit retails for €12,599 with a SRAM AXS wireless dropper and drivetrain, Öhlins air-sprung suspension, and a brake system from the Italian brand called Braking, front and rear.
The carbon fiber Hydra is a downhill bike with a little less travel than some, sitting at 170mm rear with a 180mm fork. Maybe it makes more sense to call this a self-shuttle bike for hitting some really big lines, with its pedal-focused 76° seat tube. The 63° head tube should make it pretty difficult to go over the bars no matter how steep your trails are.
This massive bike comes with the same motor and battery as the Cyon. There are two builds, retailing for €9,999 and €12,099. The base build gets alloy Crankbrothers Synthesis rims, while the the more expensive bike has Synthesis Carbon rims. The base model also has a full RockShox suspension kit and the top model receives Öhlins dampers. Both bikes use Italian brakes, with the base bike slowing on a set of Formula Cura-4s while the blingy build has a set from Braking mounted up.
