    New Exceed

    So everyone knows a new Lux is about to be released, but is anyone aware of a new Exceed?

    I’d pull the trigger on an exceed now, but I want boost wheels.

    I've heard the new Exceed will be released soon as well. Hopefully it will be announced with the press release for the new Lux. Alban Lakata, MvdP, and Pauline Prevot have been at a press camp where they are previewing the new bikes so I expect it'll be announced sometime this month. You can check out their social media accounts where they are posting veiled messages.

    That looks like the current frame. When I stated I believed the new frame would be released in 2019 that means the 2020 model year.

    Yeah, that looks like the current frame, but with new XTR and a Fox stepcast 34. Exactly the build I’d want on the new exceed. If the new lux is any indication however, it will probably come with a step cast 32 or some other 100 mm fork.

    So the canyon USA website has a few new builds listed, but the frame appears to be the same with the 142 rear. Some other threads here have said the new frame is boost, but nothing on their site validates this. As usual, the international site has more build options and the one that I would consider buying. Hopefully they’re still working on putting a few different builds together for us ‘mericans.

    This American is not buying a MTB frame with a 142 rear.

    This American just did, and at 225lbs suited up, the rear end (with carbon wheels) is plenty stiff and plenty good enough for me. Yes, I know the arguments and I know it is (since 2016) the standard. But, you can get a heck of a deal ($3300 CF 8.0 with carbon everything and X01) that will be just fine for the next 4-5 years and by then it will be another new standard anyway. Practically speaking, that's a winner and I'm sure I'm not alone.

    The maximum width tire for the 142 rear end is 2.25. That's another reason to stay away from the old Exceed. I would like the option to run a proper 2.35 size tire in the rear in the winter month when I'm not racing.

    I'm positive I could fit a Nic Nobby 2.35 back there. I have one on another bike for measurement. There is plenty of room now with a 2.2 Icon.

    According to Sean from Canyon Bicycles USA, the only Exceed that will have the 12x148 Boost spacing is the 2019 Canyon Exceed CF SLX 9.0 LTD model. It only costs $6500.

    Having spoke with Canyon Australia, they confirmed to me that all Exceed models are 12x148 Boost spacing in the rear. Well I've ordered one with delivery due on Tuesday, so I will confirm then.

    I purchased the CF 6.0 Pro Race. While the specs don't list it, i think the clue is hidden in the crank. Looking at the picture, the chainring pictured on the cranks matches a Sram boost chainring, as the non-boost ones have a lot greater bulge on them from the 6mm offset.

    Here is the email I received from Canyon USA on 12/6/2018:

    Hi Stoney,

    Thank you for your email.

    Having consulted with our technical team, as well as our technical build sheets for the Exceed, our CF SLX 9.0 Pro Race LTD model will be our only Exceed with a boost frameset.

    To run boost on our 6.0 and 8.0 models, a conversion would need to take place. These will not ship with a boost rear end.

    All the best,

    Sean

    Well Mr Delivery man had an early Christmas present waiting for me, a 2019 Canyon Exceed CF SL Pro Race 6.0. Quick snap as ill basically be gutting the entire thing to build it up with a more rowdy build, stay tuned!

    And can confirm, the 2019 Frames are Boost in the rear. Confirmed by the chainring having a 3mm offset (boost specific) and by measuring the rear dropouts, bit tricky to see but ive marked the edge of the dropout with a red line

    Well somebody at Canyon better educate Sean because he's giving false information. That concerns me as customer service may not be that useful if you run into problems.

    Interestingly, I looked on the Canyon US website, and there are far far fewer models of Exceed available in the US in comparison to Australia. I doubt it should make a difference but they do have the model I bought, the CF SL 6.0 Pro Race available only in black. No idea why the guy wasn't able to get you the correct info. The Canyon guys in Australia confirmed to me it was a Boost frame before I purchased it, and have had only positive experiences talks to the Canyon Australia guys.

    Might be worth sending a reply to him, see what he says
