profile

In the new model year we go even a step further and equip the premium alloy frame with the new One One Four SLX fork. The carbon fork impresses with a dream weight, superb levels of stiffness and thanks to VCLS technology also delivers a massive increase in comfort. Campagnolo’s Athena groupset from Vicenza delivers additional flair. The 11-speed drive-train impresses with fast, smooth and precise shifting and the ergonomically formed grips sit beautifully in the palms of the rider’s hands.

As with the top models in the Canyon range, the Ultimate AL 8.0 also runs on the first-class Mavic Ksyrium Elite S WTS wheels, which impress with low weight, stiffness and durability. The superlight black special edition Ritchey WCS stem and the ergonomic Ritchey WCS EvoCurve handlebar round off the attractive overall package.

Highlights

VCLS Technology
vertical comfort lateral stiffness

I-LOCK HEADSET SYSTEM
protects the steerer tube

One One Four SLX
for steering precision
and safety

MAXIMUS SEATTUBE
for maximum propulsion

One One Four SLX
The tapered head tube in combination with the tapered steerer tube allow the load to be spread more evenly. This translates into more safety without weight penalty. Large diameters at the fork crown provide better load transfer and reduce the notch effects.

VCLS Technology
The VCLS Stays (Vertical Comfort Lateral Stiffness) located at the transition of seat tube, top tube and seat stays, are able to absorb the vibrations and lessen the strain on the muscles. This gain in comfort is reinforced by the newly developed Canyon VCLS Post. A Carbon layup with particularly flexible basalt fibres provides a completely new riding experience.

i-Lock headset system
By rendering conventional tube drilling and clamping cones superfluous, the i-Lock headset system protects the carbon steerer from mechanical stress and damages. We were able to save weight thanks to the thin section bearing at the top and the deeply pressed-in, oversized 1 1/2 inch angular contact ball bearing at the bottom guarantees the maximum load rating of the system.

Maximus Seattube
The increasing width of the cross-section of the patented Maximus seat tube increases the lateral stiffness of the frame in the bottom bracket area by 30% compared to a conventional, round seat tube.
