It's exciting news to have Canyon's available in Australia and New Zealand. We're big fans of these bikes but it has just been too hard to get our hands on one. With the arrival of Canyon Australia and New Zealend, there's no need to wait any longer. What's also great news is that Canyon has chosen Melbourne to be the location for the HQ in Australia!
Riders in Australia and New Zealand will now have full access to the full range of Canyon bikes, as well as local service and sales support.
We caught up with Canyon's Market Manager, Darryl Moliere at Sunday's Shimano SuperCrit run by St Kilda Cycling Club. Darryl told us that he's been working hard over the past 6 months getting everything in place for the release. It was great to see real excitement about bringing Canyon's into Australia.
We had a look at the 2016 range of road bikes, they really look the goods and we're sure that you'll start seeing them on the streets very soon.
Canyon are sticking with their direct to customer model foe Australia and New Zealand with orders being placed online at www.canyon.com. Bikes are all assembled in the Canyon factory in Koblenz, Germany before bing shipped directly to your door.
If you need help choosing the right model or require any after sales support this will be handled locally by the guys in Australia.
You can check out the full range of Canyon bikes online, and if you're making your way to the TDU in January you'll find Canyon in the Tour Village in central Adelaide from 16 January 2016.
One thing is for sure, we can't wait to get our hands on one of Canyon's range of bikes.
