Neuron:On is an all new model for 2019. It’s got 29er wheels and 130mm travel front and rear. A lot of new bikes feature an integrated battery, but not Canyon. They’ve opted for an external battery. And in some ways that is good. External battery design have it’s place in the emtb world, it makes the bikes cheaper and lighter.



The Neuron:On 5.0 is just 23,16 kg pedals included. Set the wheels up tubeless and the weight is within the 22KG bracket.



Canyon Neuron:On Specifications



Neuron:On comes with the Shimano E8000 motor coupled with the E7000 display and handlebar switch. This is a good mix. The switch is compact, flush and easy to operate, and I belive most people will prefer it over the E8000 switch.



The E7000 display is also compact an it makes connecting a smartphone via Bluetooth easier. The battery is also a Shimano with 500Wh capacity. Rear shock is a Rockshox Deluxe R and the brakes are the Shimano MT500. Both of these are good components and I’m happy to...

The Neuron:On is probably a better pick if you enjoy the climb more than the descent. The Neuron:On is built for less agressive trail riding. It's a pretty nimble 29er. The Spectral:On is even more nimble will still handle more agressive riding.

I've only ridden the Neuron:On 5.0, the more expensive NeurOns have better suspension that should improve performance of rougher terrain.

I've read about the brake discs, it's 203mm in spectral and "only" 160mm on the Neuron. Do you think this is important?
I'm more xc/trail than Enduro/gravity...

Thank you.

Isn't it 180mm on the Neur:On 5.0? It should be okay as long as your not doing vwey long/steep descents and you need tobrake constantly. Switching to a 203mm up front is easy and doesn't cost much, need a new bracket in addition to the rotor.
