    Canyon Lux Discontinued?!

    Hi allIve recently been in touch with Canyon about a new XC race bike for 2019. Ive eyed the Lux Pro race team as a all round good package, great groupset (xtr), rims (DT Carbon) etc. Ive subsequently found out the bike is sold out and as far as I can establish from the comms, will not be resupplied or continued. They are hinting at announcements at some point in the near future, but puts into question the design of this bike (why wouldn't they continue the top of the line model?). Does anyone have any intel or feedback on their Lux or riders contracted with it? Could it be a parts issue? I cant imagine they would have problems with fox or shimano....

    I think this is a miscommunication. These bikes msot probably won't be available because of the limited availability of new XTR. Expect new 2020 models in Fall.
    I checked the site now and the XTR cranks are also blacked out and the description now lists RF Next SL crankset instead, so even some guys who ordered it and didn't receive it yet might get the RF cranks instead of XTR.

    Possibly the frameset will become available sooner. Bikecomponents.de has XTR components. I'd look at a Spark 900 build for different geo.

    Thanks Jaydee, most likely although came through a few times. My experience with Germans is they have a good command of the language hence why I posted. The above makes some sense, as the model lower (SRAM) is still for sale....
