Canyon Bicycles GmbH was founded in 1985 under the name Radsport Arnold before being renamed Canyon Bicycles GmbH in 2001. The company has been marketing bicycles under the name Canyon since 1996. Located in Koblenz along the Moselle River, the headquarters employs more than 400 people who are responsible for research and development, sales, logistics, as well as marketing and administration.
Canyon’s French branch was the first to be set up in 2005, in Trois Epis in Alsace.
The brand has been growing steadily for several years and is represented by branches in France, United Kingdom, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Denmark, Sweden and Benelux, which offer its services and products in these different markets.
By developing their own bikes in collaboration with engineers, composite experts, designers and quality managers, Canyon has managed to position itself as one of the market leaders, thanks in part to their own modern, state-of-the-art test laboratories at the University of Pforzheim.
The brand also collaborates with the UCI Movistar and Arkéa-Samsic teams, Fabien Barel, Thomas Genon, Pauline Ferrand-Prévot and the Canyon Collective.
