The Grand Canyon AL SLX meanwhile replaces the old Yellowstone AL 29 frameset and offers a higher spec frameset at a new lower price. Those prices start from just £689 for the 5.9, then £859 for the 6.9, which has an Shimano SLX / XT mix. While all sizes of this frame roll on 29in wheels, Canyon has switched to 650b for the XS size.
The Grand Canyon ALSLX 6.9 comes with a bargain price tag
The £859 6.9 gets a RockShox Reba RL 29 with a 15mm thru-axle, Avid Elixir 5 brakes, Shimano SLX 3×10 groupset with an XT Shadow rear mech, Mavic CrossOne wheels and Continental X-King 2.2in tyres. All-up weight is a claimed 11.50kg (25.35lb)
