Bosch SX motor

The heart of any ebike is the motor and Canyon’s adventure-ready bike uses a Bosch SX drive unit housed in a lightweight carbon frame. The motor weighs 2KG and can deliver 55Nm of torque. The 400 Wh battery can be combined with a 250 Wh Range Extender; an extra battery. This means you can have a potential 650 Wh available, allowing for extended ride times.

The Bosch ConnectModule and Flow App allows you to keep any eye on your motor and your bike. It provides theft protection, smart route navigation, ride stats and fitness progress.

The GRIZL:ON brings the worlds of gravel, Mtb, commuters, tourers and Ebikes all together in one bike. Will this be the one Ebike to rule them all? Depends, what kind of bike do you want. This new bike from Canyon certainly ticks a lot of boxes. Question is, does it tick yours?
