Welcome and thank you! This Lux Trail is certainly to the XC end of the scale relative to the Spur, no doubt. If it was available as a frame-only and you built it and a Spur with exactly the same spec I think both bikes would be a lot of fun and it would be harder to split hairs. The geo is very close to a Kona Process 111 and that bike rips.  As to the Category 3 rating, I look at it holistically. Consider their category 4 rating which is an Enduro bike, but only for moderate jumps and no "North Shore" or "Bike Park" riding but also on their Facebike post is great for Whistler Bike Park. Anyways, if Category 4 is an Enduro bike (Category 5 is a DH Bike) then Category 3 is a Trail bike and it's both cool to have a sub-2000-gram frame that's trail rate and a 110mm travel carbon bike that's trail-rated, and I'd be shocked if Canyon denied a frame warranty based on any of the North Shore Tech-C riding I'm doing on the bike regardless of the letter of the law. That said, I've added it to a list of questions for the brand for a follow-up article.
