Canyon’s Bestselling Bike in Europe Comes to the USA: Meet the ‘Grand Canyon’

At $1,299, the Canyon ‘Grand Canyon’ bike has been a staple for riders across Europe. And now, we Americans can get in on the action too.

While not a new model, the Grand Canyon 7 is new to lots of us. Specifically, U.S. customers. The Grand Canyon “reliably delivers performance with a friendly price,” said Canyon. “It serves as a great entry into mountain biking, racing, and all-out adventuring.” So it’s no wonder this model has been the bestselling model in Europe for a whole year running.

Maybe even better, this bike channels the sweet spot between high quality, versatile performance, and an accessible price.
