Van der Poel's Canyon Lux CF for 2021

Mountain bike 07/05/21 22:04 Migue A.

After a year without riding a mountain bike, Mathieu Van der Poel only needed one race to win again. At the Albstadt Short Track he was able to prove to himself and to the rest that he is still at his best and he did it on a Canyon Lux customised for this season and with some very interesting details in its set-up.

Mathieu Van der Poel's Canyon Lux CF for 2021 in detail

With the frame of the Canyon Lux CF SLX, Van der Poel already knows what it's like to win Short Track, World Cups and Europeans, but for 2021 he has changed the white colour he used in 2019 for a much more striking sky blue.

Although we are sure to see some more changes to the aesthetics of his bike throughout the year and even a special version for the Olympics.

In terms of assembly, some components have changed from previous years, such as the new 2022 Fox 34 SC fork, the SRM power meter and the integrated Canyon CP008 stem and handlebar set.

"Let the legs do the talking" the curious phrase that Van der Poel hides in the top tube
The initials of Mathieu van der Poel are embossed on the steering tube in the form of a shield.
Although Albstadt is a home track for hardtails, it doesn't look like Van der Poel will be using any other model than this one in 2021.
