EMTB Access in San Diego County

 

Where can I legally ride my eMTB in San Diego County? 

  • eMTB's can travel anywhere a motorized off-road vehicle is allowed - think dirt roads where cars/jeeps/etc can drive and OHV areas.  This site www.totalescape.com/outside/offroad/california-off-road-maps/ offers several links to off-road routes locally and throughout California.  
 
  • City of San Diego
    • Class 1 and Class 2 eMTBs are allowed on any trail where a traditional bicycle is allowed unless otherwise posted.  Check our Map page for links to City of San Diego trails. 

      This means eMTB's are ok at Penasquitos Canyon, Del Mar Mesa, Mission Trails Regional Park, Black Mountain Open Space Park, Tri-Canyons(Rose, Tecolote, Marion Bear), Florida Canyon/Balboa Park, Otay Valley Regional Park, and other urban canyons with designated trails and other trails listed on City Maps Page. 
 
  • County of San Diego
    • Class 1 and 2 e-bikes are currently allowed on all County paved areas and trails where non-electric bikes are permitted, unless specifically restricted by DPR for safety and maintenance concerns.  The Department has restricted the use of Class 1 and 2 e-bike at 17 parks and preserves. Signs have been posted at trailheads where e-bikes are prohibited.  
    • The County will be evaluating this trial period soon to determine the appropriateness of their continued use on trails.
    • Read the County Ebike fact sheet including list of areas that are closed to ebikes. If a County managed area is NOT on this list, then class 1 and 2 eMTB's are ok. 
    • This means eMTB's are allowed at Otay Valley Regional Park, Sycamore Canyon/Goodan Ranch, Del Dios Highlands Preserve, Flume Trail(Lakeside), Lake Morena, San Dieguito County Park, Sweetwater Regional Trails/Bonita Valley (except campground trails), and  Santa Ysabel East and West. 
    • Check full County of San Diego trails list HERE.
 
  •   Daley Ranch (City of Escondido):  Class 1 eMTB's are permitted on trails where regular mountain bikes are allowed. 
  •   San Dieguito River Park (Lake Hodges) - Class 1 and 2 eMTB's ok on designated trails.   Trail Map 

No matter where you stand on the idea of e-bikes, let’s all make sure that we can politely share the rules of the specific trails we’re on as well as model best practices when it come to standard trail etiquette.  


 

WHERE ARE EMTB's NOT allowed in San Diego County - 
SDMBA continually monitors Federal and State updates and news regarding policies related to eMTB access and share any such updates here. 

Federal Agencies
United States Forest Service - Cleveland National Forest
(Laguna Recreation Area, Noble Canyon, Palomar District)
The USFS considers all eBike classes to be “motorized” and eBikes are permitted only on Motorized OHV trails & fire roads within Federal land.  The Forest Service has an e-bike ban on all USFS trails where motorized use is not allowed. So dirt roads, specific-ATV tracks and motorbike trails are OK but that’s it. If you can’t legally ride a motorcycle on it, or legally drive your car on it, you can’t ride your e-bike there.

All classes of eBikes are considered motorized and are not allowed on non-motorized trails
The Code of Federal Regulations that covers this topic is 50 CFR 27.31 - General provisions regarding vehicles.
The code states, "Travel in or use of any motorized or other vehicles, including those used on air, water, ice, snow, is prohibited on national wildlife refuges except on designated routes of travel, as indicated by the appropriate traffic control signs or signals and in designated areas posted or delineated on maps by the refuge manager...

FAQ's
What is a Class 1 eBike?  
A class 1, pedal-assist e-bike is, by Federal Law definition, a motorized vehicle (when on dirt trails).  Most eMTB's from major manufacturers are Class 1. This is important to keep in mind and answers a lot of questions for us. Yes, you will find that the Department of Transportation defines e-bikes as bicycles, but this is specific to roadway situations. For example an e-bike is by definition a bicycle when it comes to insurance (it’s not required), freeways (no matter how fast one goes, they’re not allowed), and paved bike paths (in most cases e-bikes are allowed).

What should I do if I see an eBike on the trails?
First of all, BE NICE!  Usually, everyone out on the trails is there to enjoy themselves.  You don’t have to say anything as its not your (or SDMBA's) responsibility to enforce land manager policy.  If you want to educate them about eBike access, be polite!  No one likes to be told they are in the wrong, so BE NICE!  California’s eBike law has been confusing and there is a lot of misinformation online.  There is plenty of conflict in the world and let’s help keep our trails an enjoyable and peaceful place.

Is eMTB trail etiquette different than traditional mountain bike trail etiquette?   
Yes.  eMTBers should yield to ALL non-motorized users regardless of the direction they are traveling.  More info HERE

CANYON PRESS RELEASE:

Canyon is introducing an all-new, e-park bike—the Torque:ON—which combines the capability of the brand’s heralded Torque model with the power and range of Shimano’s new EP8 pedal-assist system. The brand’s Spectral:ON, Neuron:ON, and Grand Canyon:ON also receive the EP8 motor and battery update, creating one of the most comprehensive and innovative e-MTB lines in existence.

The Torque:ON is an absolute downhill-ripping, berm-slashing, air-boosting beast of a bike. It sports 175mm of ground-hugging rear suspension, a bombproof aluminium frame, and the kind of playful ride quality that’s rare from a bike with so much suspension travel. The Torque:ON is, in short, the perfect rig for anyone on a quest to ride the steepest, fastest tracks—without the aid of a shuttle van or chairlift. Canyon will offer two 2021 Torque:ON models in all markets outside the United States: The Torque:ON 8 (£4,499) and Torque:ON 9 (£6,299). Both versions are additionally available with a “Dual Battery” option for even longer days out on the trails.*

The Spectral:ON brings a nimble-yet-capable ride quality to table that is just plain fun. Sporting a mullet (29/27.5) wheel set-up, 150mm of front and rear suspension, and a sleek carbon front triangle, this is that one bike that can handle anything—from all day pedals to truly punishing descents. Six models are on tap for 2021, starting at £4,599 and culminating in the top-tier CF 9 version, which sells for £7,599.

Next in the line-up is the Neuron:ON. Featuring 130mm of front and rear suspension on most models, the Neuron:ON is the consummate trail bike. The fast and efficient Neuron:ON is the perfect tool for covering miles and uncovering adventure. The Neuron:ON is available in five models, with a price range of £3,699 - £4,599.

Last but not least, the Grand Canyon:ON brings together the same sophisticated Shimano EP8 motor and battery technology into a simple and reliable hardtail package that gives riders of all stripes the freedom to take every ride further. Canyon will offer five models, ranging in price from £2,899 - £3,599.

FAQ:

WHAT KIND OF SHOCK DOES THE TORQUE:ON USE?

The Torque:ON uses an air- sprung rear shock that’s been tuned to adapt to the Torque:ON’s ebike-adapted kinematics. The actual shock size is 250x70mm. Front hardware is 20x8. There’s no rear hardware as there is a direct connection between the shock extension and the shock body.

CAN I RUN A COIL ON THIS THING?
Air shock only. Due to the use of a shock extension, neither FOX, nor RockShox approves the use of any of their coil shocks.

WHAT MOTOR AND BATTERY DOES THE TORQUE:ON USE?

We chose the Shimano EP8 motor/EP8035 integrated battery combo for its excellent, natural feel, good power and range. The system helps the Torque:ON pedal more like an “acoustic” bike—it feels natural direct.

THE TORQUE HAS A WELL- EARNED REPUTATION AS A NIMBLE SORT OF “PLAY BIKE”. DID YOU LOSE THAT AGILE HANDLING BY ADDING A MOTOR? HOW HAVE WE RETAINED THE HANDLING CHARACTER?

When we developed the Torque:ON, we focused on maintaining that trademark playful Torque han- dling. Obviously, the additional weight introduced by the mo- tor and battery reduces some of the lively feel of a “normal bike”, but in general, the first impres- sion most people will have after descending on this rig will be: This feels like a normal bike! The short rear end and very-smartly designed kinematics were key to ensuring that the Torque:ON re- tained that great Torque handling.

DOES THE TORQUE:ON FEATURE ISCG TABS?
No. There’s no need for them on this bike. The bike already fea- tures mounts that can be con- fused for ISCG Tabs. They follow a special Shimano e-bike stan- dard integrated in the drive unit.
Bike comes with proprietary, frame-mounted chainguide and integrated bashguard that is part of the motor skid plate.

WAS DURABILITY A DRIVING FACTOR IN THE TORQUE:ON’S DESIGN?

Yes! We designed the Torque:ON to meet our most demanding (Category 5) testing standards. All bearings are adapted to their individual stresses. In fact, ac- cording to calculations, a lot of them are oversized to make them last longer while operating them far inside their limits. All bearings are filled with special, non-standard grease to further reduce friction, improve sealing, and increase their lifespan. We also replaced all friction bearings with heavy-duty ball bearings.

Ride quality also gets a boost from the Torque:ON’s over-the- top construction. The bearings and overall construction of the rear end (particularly the rocker and extension) are exceptionally robust, which gives this bike the kind of stiffness required to tru- ly testing the limits of an e-bike in technical conditions. Plenty of e-MTBs feel flexy and vague when you are pushing the bike hard. That’s definitely not the case here.

EASY MAINTENANCE HAS BEEN A DRIVING FACTOR IN THE DESIGN OF RECENT CANYON MODELS, SUCH AS THE SENDER AND SPECTRAL 29. WAS MAKING THE BIKE SIMPLE TO WORK ON ALSO A DRIVING
FACTOR IN THE TORQUE:ON’S DESIGN?


The Torque:ON is easy and straightforward to work on. All screws and bolts (except the Chainguide fixation) are easily accessible all the time. Cables are routed internally (through the front triangle). Thanks to the combination of the large battery cutout in the downtube and a Velcro base fixation system for all cables, it is really easy to access cables when necessary. Having said that, we’re confident that the bike won’t require much of that kind of maintenance.

WHAT’S THE MAXIMUM TIRE SIZE(WIDTH) FOR THE TORQUE:ON?

While the bike has been devel- oped for 2.5” tires, it accommo- dates most common 2.6” tires. As always, it pays to double check your tire clearance when switch- ing to a new model of tire since tire sizing varies so much from one tire manufacturer to the next.

Unbox and assemble your Grand Canyon:ON - Canyon E-Bike Unboxing

Are you looking for an eMTB with lots of travel and plenty of reserves? Then take a closer look at the new Canyon Torque:ON with its Shimano EP8 motor. Like all 2021 Canyon eMTBs, the new Canyon Spectral:ON is fitted with the new Shimano EP8 motor. Alongside the new motor and a bigger battery, it’s also been treated to a better spec. Does the update make it better?

Premiere: the new Canyon Torque:ON expands Canyon’s eMTB portfolio with a long-travel and capable bike intended to deliver lots of riding fun. As usual, the name and character of the bike are related to those of its analogue brother, the Torque. Canyon’s goal: create a fun and capable eMTB for the fastest and most challenging trails.

Only last year, Canyon redeveloped the Spectral:ON, not just making the bike 1 kg lighter and furnishing it with clever details, but also improving its performance on the trail. For 2021, sticking with the same 150 mm travel front and rear, the bike has been reworked once again.

You can find out about all the changes directly from our sister magazine E-MOUNTAINBIKE, as well as how the latest Spectral:ON CF 9 (click for review) and Torque:ON (click for review) handles on the trail.

The Canyon Spectral:ON, Neuron:ON and Grand Canyon:ON have all been updated for 2021. But the really big news? They're all now available in Australia for the first time


That’s right folks – for the first time ever, Canyon Bicycles is now offering its electric mountain bike range to the Australian market. That’s big news, because up until now Canyon hasn’t been able to sell e-MTBs into Australia due to constraints around shipping bikes with a big ol’ battery inside the downtube. Thankfully those logistical challenges have been overcome however, and just in time for the official launch of Canyon’s 2021 e-MTB range. The lineup includes the Spectral:ON, Neuron:ON and Grand Canyon:ON, which have all been updated with new spec, motor and battery options. There’s also a brand new long-travel platform called the Torque:ON, which you can check out in our separate tech feature here. In this article, we’ll be taking a tour of the broader e-MTB range, along with a closer look at our newest test bike – the Canyon Spectral:ON CF 8.

The Canyon Spectral:ON – What’s The Vibe?

Out of the four models in Canyon’s e-MTB range, the most versatile option is surely the Spectral:ON.

Designed as the capable all-rounder, the Spectral:ON features 150mm of suspension travel front and rear. With an eye on keeping things playful, Canyon has built the Spectral:ON with a trendy mullet wheelsize setup – much like the Merida eOne-Sixty we just tested. There’s a 29in front wheel for improved rollover and stability, while the 27.5in rear wheel has allowed the designers to keep the rear end nice and short, with the goal of delivering more nimble handling, particularly through the turns.

The frame itself is constructed with a sleek carbon fibre front end and an alloy sub-frame. A four bar suspension design connects to the rear shock via an extension link, and the layout means there’s sufficient clearance inside the mainframe to fit a water bottle. Our Medium sized bike fits a proper 750ml bottle, just clearing the piggyback reservoir.

New for 2021, the Canyon Spectral:ON moves from the old E8000 motor to Shimano’s new EP8 drive unit. That means you’re getting more power, less weight, reduced drag, better ride feel and improved tune-ability via the E-TUBE app. For the full rundown on the new EP8 motor, check out our separate tech feature here.

Also new for 2021 is the move from a 504Wh battery to a bigger 630Wh unit, which should help to expand the Spectral:ONs range by some margin. It’s still easily removable from the downtube via a 4mm hex key, so you can recharge it separately or while it’s in the bike. The battery is protected by a bolt-on armour plate that cleanly integrates with the frame, while the motor is shielded by a fibre-reinforced skid plate. Further insurance against crash damage is provided by a headset steering limiter, and Canyon has also added a neat chainguide, which mounts directly to the main pivot.

How Does The Bike Arrive?

As with any Canyon mountain bike, the Spectral:ON arrives on your doorstep after being airfreighted directly from Canyon’s factory in Koblenz, Germany. The shipping cost is also the same at $199 AUD, which is additional to the price of the bike itself. It’s shipped inside a purpose-built cardboard bike box that’s made to withstand the extra weight of an e-MTB. Inside the box you’ll find basic tools, a torque wrench, shock pump, build manual and a charger. What you won’t find however, is the battery.

To get around the issue of airfreighting a full-size battery, it’s simply sent separately. Whereas the bike is sent from Germany, the battery comes from Canyon Australia by road freight. Once the two packages arrive, all you need to do is bolt the cover to the battery, then clip the battery into the frame. Otherwise bike assembly is the same as any other Canyon mountain bike – fit the front wheel and handlebar, install your pedals, and you’re mostly ready to roll.

What Canyon Spectral:ON Models Will Be Available In Australia?

There are six Spectral:ON models that we’ll be able to buy in Australia, and stock is due to be available by mid-February. All models are built with the same carbon/alloy frame, Shimano EP8 motor and 630Wh battery, with prices starting at $8,599 AUD for the Spectral:ON CF 6 and going up to $13,549 AUD for the Spectral:ON CF 9.

Regardless of price, all Spectra:ON models feature Shimano 1×12 drivetrains, 4-piston brakes and 203mm rotors. The tyre combo is identical throughout the range – you get a 2.5in Minion DHF on a 30mm wide rim for a little more precision up front, with a 2.6in Minion DHR II on a 35mm rim for a little more traction and cushion on the rear.

As for contact points, the Spectral:ON comes with Canyon’s unique e-MTB specific saddle that’s designed to offer more support for seated pedalling on steep climbs. You also get shorter 165mm crank arms, and the cockpit is rounded out with a 760-780mm wide bar and a 50mm stem on all sizes. Higher end models feature a distinctive one-piece carbon fibre handlebar and stem, with internal routing for the Di2 electric wires. Speaking of electrics, there’s even a USB-C charging port just behind the head tube, which you could use to charge your GPS, phone, headlight, or Tamagotchi.

We’ll be testing the Canyon Spectral:ON CF 8 over the coming weeks to see how it compares to the competition, so stay tuned for the full review coming to Flow MTB soon. In the meantime, read on for an overview of the Spectral:ON lineup, followed by a closer look at the Neuron:ON and Grand Canyon:ON.

Canyon Neuron:ON – Less Travel, More Chill

Sitting beneath the Spectral:ON, the Canyon Neuron:ON is a full suspension e-MTB that aims for a more accessible price point thanks to its all-alloy frame. However, it’s still built around the latest Shimano EP8 motor and most bikes get a 630Wh battery too. You’ll also find Shimano 1x drivetrains and hydraulic disc brakes throughout the range, and every model is also equipped with a RockShox fork and air shock.

Designed for more all-round riding with a priority on comfort, the Neuron:ON has less aggressive geometry and less suspension travel with 130mm front and rear. In the bigger sizes (M-XL) it features 29in wheels, while the smaller sizes (XS-S) use 27.5in wheels. Those smaller sizes get slightly less travel (120/125mm) and they also come with a smaller 504Wh battery due to size constraints. As a result, XS-S sizes are a few hundred bucks cheaper.

Despite the cheaper price point, you’ll still find loads of features in the Neuron:ON, including an integrated chainguide, Quixle thru-axle, e-MTB specific saddle, internally routed dropper post, and a USB-C charging port on the top tube.

2021 canyon grand canyon:on emtb

Canyon Grand Canyon:ON – The Hardtail e-MTB

For those who don’t need rear suspension, the Grand Canyon:ON brings the price of entry down even further over the Neuron:ON and Spectral:ON.

The Grand Canyon:ON is built around a 6061 welded alloy chassis that incorporates Shimano’s internal battery pack into the downtube. Smaller sizes and cheaper models use the 504Wh battery, though most options feature the bigger 630Wh battery. All Grand Canyon:ON models are powered by the 85Nm Shimano EP8 motor, and they all feature Shimano 1x drivetrains and hydraulic disc brakes.

Just like its more expensive fully suspended counterparts, the Grand Canyon:ON integrates armour for both the motor and battery, and it features Canyon Chain Catcher and USB-C charging port as standard.

Canyon Spectral:ON 2021 Review - One Of The Best-Handling e-MTBs We've Tested

All good things come in fours. Canyon have equipped their eMTB fleet with the new Shimano EP8 motor. The Grand Canyon:ON hardtail, the Neuron:ON touring fully and the sporty Spectral:ON all get a boost in power and, for some builds, a bigger battery. In addition, Canyon have expanded their portfolio with the Canyon Torque:ON.

Canyon start the new year with a big update to all the eMTBs in the Canyon:ON range. From now on, these will be powered by a Shimano EP8 motor, the latest unit from the Japanese bike component specialist’s factory. Accompanying the existing Grand Canyon:ON, Neuron:ON and Spectral:ON, the Torque:ON joins Canyon’s eMTB ranks as a new motorised variant of the much-loved freerider, the Torque.

Grand Canyon:ON

We start things off with the updated Grand Canyon:ON. Just like its non-motorised counterpart, the Grand Canyon:ON is conceived as a sporty trail hardtail with 120 mm travel up front. That is reduced to 100 mm for size XS. The 85 Nm Shimano EP8 motor and the battery are both elegantly integrated into the aluminium frame. The ebike is available in five sizes from XS to XL, as well as five different builds of which two are women’s specific WMN models. Size XS is reserved to the WMN builds which are limited to size M at the other end of the scale. The entry-level Grand Canyon:ON 7 and 7 WMN models come with a 504 Wh battery in all sizes and cost € 2,899. The three higher-specced builds in the form of the Grand Canyon:ON 8, 8 WMN and 9 come with a 504 Wh battery in sizes XS and S due to space constraints but find room for a 630 Wh battery inside the aluminium frame for sizes M to XL. That’s also reflected in the price. From sizes M and up these three models cost € 200 more than the smaller sizes. A further distinctive feature of the small XS and S models is the choice of 27.5″ wheels. Again, from sizes M and up, all Grand Canyon:ON models roll on 29″ wheels. As is typical for Canyon, the Grand Canyon:ON features lots of thought-through details and unique solutions like the USB charging port or the ebike-specific saddle with its raised tail.

Canyon Neuron:ON

The Neuron:ON is targeted at ebikers who cover longer distances. We had the previous model in for a long term test and were left enthusiastic about its good-natured handling and value for money. The perfect gateway drug for eMTBs? You can find out more details in our review of the Neuron:ON WMN 7.0 2020. With the new Shimano EP8 motor and, depending on the frame size and model, a bigger battery, the Neuron gets updates that will be of particular interest to trekking riders. The previous model, with identical geometry to the current one, did well on extended tours and scored with a high level of comfort and well-judged riding position. The Canyon Neuron:ON 20201 is available in five sizes from XS to XL, as well as five different builds of which two are women’s specific WMN versions. Like the Grand Canyon:ON, the Neuron:ON is only available in sizes XS to M for the WMN versions. In sizes M to XL the Neuron:ON has 130 mm travel front and rear and rolls on 29″ wheels. In sizes XS and S, it has 120 mm travel up front, 125 mm at the rear and rolls on smaller 27.5″ wheels. Again, like the Grand Canyon:ON, the 504 Wh battery found on the Neuron:ON in sizes XS and S is smaller than that fitted to the larger models. These can draw their power from a 630 Wh battery instead. To compensate, the Neuron:ON 8, Neuron:ON 8 WMN and Neuron:9 are € 200 cheaper in the smaller sizes. The entry-level models of the Neuron:ON 7 and Neuron:ON 7 WMN cost € 3,699 and come with 504 Wh batteries for all sizes.

Canyon Spectral:ON CF

The Spectral:ON CF 2021 builds on its agile predecessor and, as before, is intended to be the eMTB for downhill flow and trail fun in Canyon’s portfolio.
The Spectral:ON CF 2021 is available in 6 builds, of which four are unisex and two women’s specific WMN models. All builds are available in four sizes from S to XL and come fitted with a 630 Wh battery. Likewise, there is no size-specific tailoring of wheels or travel with the Spectral:ON CF. Canyon put their trust in mixed wheel sizes with 29″ front and 27.5″ rear, paired with 150 mm travel at both ends. Numerous details like Canyon’s one-piece bar and stem, ebike specific saddle, the Skid Plate motor protector and the USB-C charging port round out the package on all builds.

We’ve had the opportunity to test the Spectral:ON 9.0 2021 (read review here) for several months already and were able to scrutinise it closely, both on our wintery home trails and riding in Tuscany. We tell you about everything new and let you know why the new Spectral:ON CF 9.0 (costing € 7,499) is roughly € 500 more expensive than last year.

Canyon Torque:ON

The new Canyon Torque:ON is intended to appeal to ebikers who want to ride the most challenging and technical terrain aboard their eMTB. Regardless of whether it’s the bike park, trail centre or local trails, the Torque:ON, like its non-motorised brother, is designed to be the do-it-all gravity ebike in Canyon’s portfolio.
The plush suspension with 180 mm travel up front and 175 mm at the rear is paired with 27.5″ wheels at both ends. The new Torque:ON is also equipped with a Shimano EP8 motor. One unusual feature is that all sizes come with a smaller 504 Wh battery. If you prefer more capacity, Canyon offer the option of ordering the Torque:ON with a spare 504 Wh battery for an upcharge of € 500. Does the concept work? We’ve already managed to swing our legs over the Torque:ON and alongside our first ride impressions, we have all the details about the bike for you. You can read the review of the Torque:ON 9 2021 here.

Conclusion

With the switch to the Shimano EP8 motor and the introduction of the Torque:ON, Canyon offer one of the most up-to-date and encompassing eMTB portfolios on the market. We’ve already managed to spend some time on the Spectral:ON CF 9 (read review here) and the Torque:ON 9 (read review here) testing each on the terrain it was designed for. You can find out more in their individual reviews.

Tested: Canyon Spectral:ON CF 9 E-Bike

Get access to everything we publish when you sign up for Outside+.

I’m just going to come out and say it. If you’re looking for a highly capable do-everything eMTB, the Canyon Spectral:ON should be right up near the top of the list. Right off the bat, let’s just jump into value, because let’s face it, that’s one of the first things we think of with direct-to-consumer brands.

If you compare this top-level CF 9 build, complete with XTR bits, carbon hoops, and Fox Factory suspension with Specialized’s top-end S-Works Turbo Levo, there’s simply no contest. This bike is $9,000, that one is $15,000. It’s an insane gap. Hell, if you bumped down to the Spectral:ON CF 8, at $7,000, you could get a second one for your friends to ride and still be a grand below what an S-Works Turbo Levo would cost you. The least expensive Turbo Levo, at the time of writing, is the $11,000 Expert build. Granted, the parts on it aren’t actually much of a downgrade from this top-level Spectral:ON CF 9 but it’s still significantly more cash. And, that’s the entry price. You can get into one of these suckers for six grand.

Long story short, Canyon absolutely mops the floor with Specialized in the value department. But it’s not that simple. When it comes to e-bikes, there’s a whole lot more to it than parts spec, geometry and ride quality—most of which, by the way, the Canyon delivers on but we’ll get to that in a bit. When it comes to e-bikes, there’s a whole other can of worms. And well, Specialized has a much better can of worms. The system integration, power delivery, user control and feature-set included with the new Turbo Levo is all a lot nicer than with the Shimano EP8 system that’s powering the Spectral:ON. It’s not a little better, it’s leagues better. But again, super high price point.

So, what exactly does this bike have going for it then? Well, a lot. First of all, the handling is absolutely phenomenal. The Spectral:ON sports 150 millimeters of front and rear travel, and runs a mixed wheel size configuration to keep the rear-center nice and short. 435 millimeters short. This, more than any other aspect of the bike’s geometry, make it ultra maneuverable and playful. This thing ducks and weaves better than a lot of normal non-motorized bikes do. I’m able to easily engage rear wheel steering mode, which is of course everyone’s favorite mode. The rear wheel is nicely tucked beneath you and you can feel exactly where it is at all times. Between the short rear-center and the low-hung weight of the Shimano EP8 motor, this bike shralps berms better than any bike I’ve ridden in recent memory—acoustic included. Specialized Turbo Levo included.

Up front, the Spectral:ON’s relatively steep 66.5-degree head angle nicely compliments the snappy nature provided by the short stays. Overall, it’s one of my favorite bikes for tight, twisty terrain and steep, techy climbs—with one slight caveat. The seat angle is slack AF. 74.5 degrees slack.

With more weight off the back, the bike isn’t as pedal-efficient as it could be with a much steeper seat tube. But to be fair, you just get used to it. After slamming the seat forward on the rails and giving it a few rides, it really stopped bothering me. I do think steep seat angles are a good development, and I do think Canyon will correct this on the next version of this bike, but I’m also convinced that it’s far less of a concern on a bike that helps you up the hills. What I’m saying is the Spectral:ON’s slack seat angle is 100 percent not a dealbreaker for me. I don’t think it should be for you, either.

The pedaling efficiency of the suspension platform is actually pretty good on undulating terrain, and it tracks amazingly through chunky trail. There’s a real supple, active feel with the suspension, and there’s still enough support to handle hard landings and big hits. And the bike ships from Canyon with room in the shock for more volume spacers should you want more progressively from the setup. I’m not totally blown away with how this bike pedals, but it’s good enough that I don’t stress about reaching down to lock it out. As far as bump performance is concerned, the bike is very, very good.

To continue comparing the Spectral:ON against the Levo, I’d say that overall, the Levo is a bit more capable on gnarly terrain, and it’s also more versatile. Both bikes have the same rear wheel size and travel, but the Levo’s steepest position is a degree slacker, can be adjusted down to a bike park-worthy 63.5 degrees, and runs 10 more millimeters of suspension travel up front. But I don’t say that in a bad way. While the Levo can go deeper, the Spectral:ON is perfectly positioned as an aggressive trail bike. I do have to mention, though, that I sized up to an XL for this bike, where I typically ride size large bikes. That’s because the reach numbers are a touch on the short side. I love being somewhere around 475 millimeters on reach (depending on seat angle) and the large Spectral:ON 10mm shorter than that. At 485mm, the XL is on the long end of what I’m most comfy on especially when combined with the bike’s slack seat angle. When I first got on it, I thought I’d made a mistake. It felt way too long at first, but after settling into it, I concluded that I made the right choice by sizing up.

The extra length creates a ton of stability, which I believe nicely subdues playful feel provided by the steepish head angle and short rear-center. Sizing up allowed me to gain a bit more speed and confidence on steep, rowdy descents than I believe I would have had with a smaller size. I do however still think that a slightly longer size large would hit a sweet spot for me. If my prediction on seat angle for the next version of this bike is correct, I presume reach will increase along with it.

At the end of the day, despite a couple slightly less-than-ideal geometry numbers, this bike remains a very solid number two on my overall list of favorite full-power e-bikes. And when it comes absolutely railing turns, it’s number one.

With that, should we talk about the e-bike parts of this e-bike? Might as well.

Okay, so I’ve already said that the Shimano EP8 motor is not as good as Specialized’s power plant, but it’s still very good and you don’t need to spend 11 grand to get it. There’s a lot to love about the system. The Shimano system for sure has a far better display than anything Bosch or Fazua have, making it a solid second best. I don’t love that it’s hanging precariously off the bar, ready to be broken off (which could easily kill the bike’s power), but it’s relatively small, bright, and uses excellent color coding to identify modes along with nice, easy to read lettering for OFF, ECO, TRAIL and BOOST. You can also toggle through different data fields, though it’s not as customizable as I’d like it to be. And, I noticed that it always returns back to the main screen after a little bit rather than leaving it where I put it. You know, if I want to obsess over how much range I have left by constantly staring down at it, I should have that option. I should also have the option to have the bike power up in the mode it powered off in. Instead it always powers up in the power assist OFF mode. It’s a small, but annoying detail. A far more annoying detail is that battery percentage is not displayed. Before Specialized came out with its industry leading display it at least provided 10 bars to give you a pretty close idea where you’re at. With just 5 bars on the Shimano display, the resolution is an embarrassingly high 20 percent. It does zero favors for my range anxiety. But all and all, it’s still the second best unit I’ve used, and the accompanying app provides a good amount of control over power delivery in each mode, along with other critical information.

And speaking of power delivery, the EP8 is quite good. It senses torque really well so it’s easy to re-start in the middle of a climb, and the power comes on relatively smoothly. It’s jerky compared to the Specialized system, but far smoother than other systems I’ve ridden, like Bosch and Fazua. The motor runs nice and quiet and comes on very strong, with a max output of 85Nm of torque. The stock setting for Boost mode is actually too strong for a lot of steep, technical climbing, but amazing for smashing fire road shuttles. The EP8 has slightly different torque and power output values than the Brose motor in the Levo, but as far as that’s concerned it’s really hard for me to feel a difference. Both motors are strong pullers. What I notice more is the difference in the smoothness of the power, not the strength of it.

With the EP8, the Spectral:ON is real solid performer, and the 630 watt-hour battery allows you to stay out for hours. Range varies so remarkably between terrain, power modes, rider weight, and even technique, that I won’t attempt to publish any solid figures here, but from what I can tell, the motor uses watts pretty efficiently. On my typical test loop, I’m finishing with just a touch less remaining battery capacity on the Spectral:ON than I do with the Levo and its 700 watt-hour battery. As far as power strength, power delivery and range is concerned, the EP8-powered Spectral:ON is an impressive package. Also running noise is impressively low. But, the stinkin’ thing rattles when coasting through anything that’s even remotely bumpy. This is a known issue with the Shimano EP8 motor that shockingly made it to final production. With bikes now being as tight and quiet as they’ve become these days, the rattling EP8 motor is a bit of a downer. But not enough of one to prevent me from recommending this bike to anyone.

The Spectral:ON is a very good bike. It has clean lines, excellent motor and battery integration, and extraordinary handling attributes. Some spec levels and sizes are due to come back in stock next month. If you’re going to religiously check stock on any bike, the Special:ON is one that’s worth the effort.
