Beyond Borders: Talking About the 2021 Spectral 29 with Canyon

In this episode, I was lucky enough to chat with Jack and Leo from Canyon about the new Spectral 29. Jack is the head of the Gravity Mtb division at Canyon and Leo was in charge of the engineering. We have a good chat about the Geo updates, balancing aesthetics with function, and the tricky parts of the design of the bike. It was also important to identify the riders this bike is for as the new Spectral is a genre-defying rig.
