A quick blast on the Canyon mountain bikes website reveals this mad machine - the Canyon Dude - a kind of fatbike, hardtail mountain bike with suspension forks. The pure use case is ragging around everywhere and anywhere with an emphasis on horrible, wet, muddy UK conditions.
This bike defies conventions. On first glance it looks like a fairly standard hardtail. With the fatbike pedigree it looks very chuckable and opens up many new options to explore riding styles.
Disclosure: I’ve not tested this bike.
