The Canyon Precede ON CF 8 left us thoroughly impressed with its remarkable features and outstanding performance. As fans of Canyon bikes, we were excited when we learned about the arrival of their urban line of commuter e-bikes in the American market. Unboxing the securely packaged ebike, we were delighted to find that it came with all the necessary tools to build the ebike. For added convenience, Canyon even offers velofix Direct delivery and assembly in select regions, ensuring a seamless experience for riders.

From the moment we laid eyes on the Precede ON CF 8, its sleek design instantly captured our attention. The integration of the stem and handlebar resulted in clean lines and a premium aesthetic that made it stand out from the crowd. The bike’s Anchor Grey color further enhanced its overall appeal. As soon as we hopped on and took it for a spin, we felt comfortable with its upright seated position and ergonomically designed grips on the integrated bar/stem combo. Accessing the Bosch thumb controller on the left side of the bars is easy, allowing us to effortlessly toggle between pedal assist modes and navigate the bright and removable Kiox display. The Kiox display is removable so when you park the bike you have piece of mind it can’t be turned on without the display.

Equipped with the powerful Bosch Performance Line speed motor, the Precede ON CF 8 delivered a smooth and powerful ride. It effortlessly propelled us to higher speeds and it handles well at those higher speeds. Since it is relatively light weight, the Precede ON CF 8 excelled in Eco mode, offering optimal efficiency and maximizing our riding range. The hydraulic disc brakes do a great job of stopping the bike, delivering reliable and responsive stopping power. The 57mm Schwalbe G-One all-around tires provided a comfortable and grippy ride on a variety of terrains.


There’s really not much to dislike about the Canyon Precede ON CF 8. However, for some people, the build process might feel a bit overwhelming due to the bike’s large packaging and the need for extra care when working with its carbon fiber frame. Tightening bolts, applying the correct torque, and using carbon fiber paste require some caution. But don’t worry, if Velofix Direct is available in your area, you can opt to have the bike delivered and professionally assembled, thanks to Canyon’s partnership with Velofix.

The stem and bars are integrated together as a single unit, which means you can’t upgrade them separately. However, the integrated system works well and its comfortable, and we don’t really see a reason to tinker with it. One thing to be mindful of is the kickstand’s placement. When rolling the bike backward, the spinning pedals tend to get caught on the stand.  This isn’t much of a deal breaker for the bike, just something we noted when moving the bike around.

The Canyon Precede ON CF 8 does come with a more premium price tag of $4,299, which may exceed some budgets. But, for that price, you’re getting a truly exceptional bike at that price. Its remarkable quality and impressive features make it a worthy investment for those looking for a top-notch riding experience.
