There are many theories and explanations about the classic tartan patterns that we can see on skirts, kilts and other typical Scottish garments, but one of the most widespread is that each pattern represents a clan. So Canyon wanted to pay tribute to the host of the 2023 Cycling Super World Championships and has customized the frames of its cyclists with a tartan for each bike model.

The Canyon Lux on which Loana Lecomte or Mathieu van der Poel will race at the XCC/XCO World Championships features a silver and black finish with black and red checkered tartan details. In addition, each rider will have his or her name printed on the frame.

In downhill, the chosen pattern is yellow and stands out against the black and silver colors of Australian Troy Brossnan's Canyon Sender CFR.

Aussie Troy Brossnan will make his debut on his new Canyon Sender on August 4th in the qualifying round of the DH World Championship.


The new Canyon Speedmax CFR Track and Speedmax time trial bikes also have their own colors, green for the time trial and blue for the velodrome.
