KOBLENZ, GERMANY: Canyon is excited to announce the launch of the Precede:ON; a new urban e-bike that is ready to make an immediate impact on how people move around the city. The Precede:ON is set to be the most-equipped, stylish e-bike available to date. Thanks to its striking carbon frame, the Precede:ON has already won the 2021 German Design Award, but the aesthetic of the bike only scratches the surface. The powerful Bosch motor and battery are seamlessly incorporated into the frame and the cockpit follows suit. With no visible cables or wires, the built-in Bosch Kiox display and specially integrated brake levers – designed in collaboration with TRP – make the unified handlebar and stem the first of their kind. A bright Supernova light system, strong aluminium fenders, a kickstand and a robust rear rack with the Ortlieb 3.1 quick lock system all come pre-installed on the bike.
In addition to the launch of the Precede:ON, Canyon can also unveil its vision for the future of urban mobility with a unique futuristic concept vehicle. The concept vehicle is not just a unique vision for the future of urban mobility – it lays the groundwork for the German brand’s progressive forward direction. The futuristic vehicle represents the potential expansion of Canyon’s new “City & Trekking” portfolio. In order to create better mobility for the world of tomorrow, Canyon wishes to create bicycles and forward-thinking concepts that enable urban dwellers to seamlessly move between roads and bike infrastructure alike. Vehicles with space to transport children or larger luggage that also offer protection from the elements. Vehicles that are – above all else – sustainable, clean and future-oriented. That is what the Canyon Future Mobility Concept represents: a vision for the city of the future.
Canyon founder Roman Arnold comments: “Cities are changing. New and exciting visions of urban spaces are being laid out, but for real transformation to occur there needs to be a catalyst – a driving force that ensures the next few decades result in more than just a few minor tweaks. As one of the bike industry’s leading innovators and the number one direct-to-consumer brand in the world, Canyon has already had a substantial impact on the world of cycling. With that reputation comes a responsibility to take risks and lead the way on urban mobility. Canyon has an idea for where the future of urban transit is headed and believe that they can make it better. That’s why we’re not just taking one step towards the future – we’re making a leap.”
