As swift as an arrow and super-light – the Transalp winner in 2012 and 2013 competes in the premier league with its high-end carbon frame and refined technical features. The successful recipe of the current European marathon champion is concealed inside the frame. Intelligent fibre orientation of various carbon-fibre materials allows us to exploit the advantages of the material to the full, giving the bike outstanding stiffness and comfort values.
Short chain stays for agile handling with no skittishness, a low bottom bracket for a good seat on the bike, short head tube for firm uphill riding – the Grand Canyon CF SLX offers the best preconditions for use in marathon and XC racing. The extremely stiff oversize head tube ensures even more agile handling and a safe riding sensation on high-speed descents. A further highlight is the Impact Protection Unit (IPU) in the top tube which prevents the handlebar damaging it in the event of a fall. With its race-proven geometry, the new Grand Canyon CF SLX is ideally suited for ambitious XC and marathon riders.
Steering precision is one of the most important parameters for ride features. Thanks to the Tapered Steerer the package space for the fork shaft and the bottom headset. It also allows conical fork shafts to be fitted which give a more direct feel at the front during braking and steering.
The Impact Protection Unit (patent pending) stops the handlebar damaging the top tube in the event of a crash.
Stiffness is the greatest asset. This doesn't just apply to the frame, but also to the axles. By using an X12 thru-axle the stiffness is increased and bike handling is significantly improved.
