Canyon release new Sitched range
“I love the shape of the bike. I’ve seen so many riders on it and no matter which size they choose, the bike fits. And Canyon’s killing it with colors lately. I would be stoked to ride any of the stock colors”. You know what bike Tommy G is talking about! The Canyon Stitched has racked up a Freeride World Tour championship, helped launch riders to the podium at Crankworx, and raised the stoke level at dirt jumps, pump tracks and street sessions the world over. On March 21st, Canyon Bicycles will debut MY20 versions of both the Sitched 360 ($1,599 NZD) Stitched 360 Pro ($2,199) and Stitched 720 ($3,149).
All Stitched models retain their progressive geometry, light-yet-burly aluminium frames, and bash-worthy components. In short, same rad ride, coated in new, equally rad, paint jobs. No we didn’t sculpt the frames out of some novel unobtanium material or re-invent the entire dirt-jump genre. The Stitched 360 and 720, however, are smartly designed, nearly bullet proof, and ridiculously fun. That’s saying alot, so here are the details.
Canyon continues to offer two Stitched hardtails the 360 and 360 Pro. Both models feature the same stout, yet surprisingly light, aluminium chasses with massive, box-sections near the bottom bracket, for enhanced stiffness and strength. The Stitched 720 excels on modern slopestyle courses where higher speeds and increasingly bonkers features are the norm. The 720 delivers 100mm of progressive suspension, giving the bike plenty of pop and the kind of suspension ramp necessary to tackle huge jumps and heavy landings.
Brawny and lightweight? Stitched nails that elusive combo with lightweight alloy frames that take to the air easily yet shrug off the same “Category 5” abuse as our DH models. And Stitched is equallly at home on a backyard pump track as it is on the world’s biggest slopestyle courses – its geometry is key. It keeps your weight balanced and boosts confidence. , we equipped the Stitched with burly cranks, wheels and dirt jump-specific suspension so your bike never comes up short, even if you go big… and come up short.
