Canyon Lands Downunder

German designed Canyon bikes are now available in Australia and New Zealand. Back in July it was announced that Canyon was going to launch to our market, and since then they’ve been setting up their headquarters and service centre in Melbourne.

While the Australian office will handle customer service, the bikes themselves will be shipped directly to your door from Koblenz in Germany. Their direct sales model results in very competitive pricing for what are high quality bikes.

A broad range of Canyon models will be available to our market (only some of the cheaper alloy hardtails won’t make it to Australia as it’s now worthwhile due to freight costs).

Here’s a quick look at some of the key MTB models and you can see the full range at www.canyon.com/au
