Canyon Urban Concept Bike

View all 7 Photos

A throwback from the recent past, this concept bike was unveiled by Canyon Bicycles last year. It’s just too cool to forget. Unlike Canyon’s usual wheels, this design is intended for commuting, not racing. But, of course, Canyon does commuter bikes with an edge. Sharply designed and ready to take the city, the Urban Concept is outfitted with a low handlebar, integrated Supernova front and E3 rear lights, a SON dynamo hub, a Conti® belt drive, a Sram Automatix two-speed hub, and Gilles Berthoud mudguards. Additionally, the bike comes with a locking mechanism behind the seat tube and a QR code on the top tube, safety measures which protect against theft and can verify whether the bike has been stolen so that the unlucky owner can make good on the warranty. Handsome as well as practical, the bike is dressed for all occasions with a matte gray frame and polished black metal and cognac leather accents.
