Canyon Bicycles was founded in 1985 by Roman Arnold. Starting as Radsport Arnold, a small bike shop in Koblenz, Germany, the company evolved into Canyon in 2001, stepping into designing and manufacturing its bicycles.
Canyon’s unique business model sets it apart in the industry. By selling bikes directly to consumers online, Canyon offers high-quality bicycles at more competitive prices than traditional retail. This approach reduces costs and allows for closer customer relationships and more efficient feedback integration into product development.
Canyon’s flagship road bike model is the Aeroad CFR, ridden by the 2023 Road World Champion, Mathieu van der Poel. This bike is an engineering masterpiece, combining lightweight construction with exceptional stiffness and aerodynamic efficiency.
